    Brenda, great review as always. We were in Skyline every night last August drinking Novak's concoctions. We'd go "off menu" and just have him experiment on us. :drinking1 Got some really different drinks that were awesome.

    Unfortunately, did you see/hear that he is leaving DCL? He posted on FB last week that he has resigned from Disney.

    Oh no, I was looking forward to seeing him in Sept! How do you get FB posts about the CM's?
    Love to keep up with some of them.

    It is a bummer that he's gone. We loved seeing him each night.

    As for FB, we friended each other after our cruise.

    Jeff, thanks for stopping by to take a read; nice to hear from you. I hope you and the lovely family are doing well. :goodvibes

    So very sorry to hear about Novak ... we are both bummed by the news. We didn't think about friending him after the cruise because we are just dumb that way. :rotfl2: Maybe I will try to do that tonight just to wish him well. He was pretty darn amazing ... both as a bartender and a person. :thumbsup2

    He is amazing.

    Did he tell you the story about when he started? He was in the manager's office and they actually had the drink book that he put out on their bookshelf. He could make some mean drinks. :cool2:

    If you don't have his last name, let me know, I can PM you.

    Oh, and the family is doing great, thanks for asking. Have you and Jason traveled up this way lately?

    I usually don't ever read TRs, but I recognized your DIS name as one that's on one of my upcoming cruises (Oct 2014 Southern) & decided to read it. Great job! Hilarious :) Felt like I was on board with you. I loved your take on the Hurricane Sandy situation - great stand on that issue.

    Thanks again for the TR! I'll see you on board next Oct ;)

    Hey Brenda- If you search Novak on FB he should show up pretty close to the top of your search list since I have him friended as well. People with "mutual friends" move to the top of the search lists.

    Glad to hear you are all doing well! We haven't been up north since Thanksgiving 2010 ... unless you count a recent training blitz of mine in February which was totally work related. Sooner or later we will make it up your way again. :goodvibes

    Hi Emily! Thanks for taking the time to read and I'm glad you enjoyed it! Looking forward to meeting you next year on the Magic!! :thumbsup2

    Thank you my friend - took your advice! :goodvibes

    One of the best trip reports I've read. We have the same trip plan nines for the first week of November. I feel compelled to follow in your footsteps. We're not worthy! :worship::worship::worship:

    I haven't been around for a while so just now seeing this. Thanks for the kind words. Now that your cruise is over, please tell me how your trip was and if the booze lived up to your expectations. :goodvibes

    I've re-read this one since it came back up again and loved it. I was on this sailing too. What a wild ride!

    Hey Girlfriend! :goodvibes I'm re-reading too, to get ready for our NYE cruise- REALLY looking forward to all those cocktails, they look incredible! You are also making me regret my decision not to do the Champagne brunch at Remy- we are having dinner there (for the first time) instead.

    Anyway, thanks for getting me ready to put my drinking shoes on!

    This is an awesome trip report! I'm cruising on the Fantasy in a week and will definitely try some of the drinks and activities mentioned in this trip report. Can't wait to read your next trip report.
