On one of the occasions that we were invited to have dinner with the Captain,I had a couple of pre-dinner cocktails.
Then during the dinner we started out with white wine then switched to red and it flowed quite freely. We had after dinner drinks at the end of the dinner.
The next event was a cocktail party with the Senior Officers.
After that I saw all kinds of things flying around.
