My suggestion is to only order drinks with ice, i.e., vodka/rocks, scotch/rocks, etc. When you order specialty/mixed drinks, the amount of alcohol is not easily discerned. I think that I do better with the basic drinks. Just my suggestion. We also bring unlimited wine onboard on Holland America. So that takes care of dinner, etc. and wine in our stateroom. Even with the corkage fee, we drink superior wines to those offerred on HAL.
