Hey CB - wifey and I decided on taking a cruise rather than a DR all-inclusive we were originally planning. Never cruised before so trying to get some info aforehand and seeing as how you know what my hobby is!!!
I would meet up with my Fiance' at the back of the Inspiration on both our cruises. He liked to relax have a drink and smoke a cigar. There were a few men doing so and with the night air you couldn't smell the smoke.
1. Cigar Bar (get a glass of port, they really go well with one)
2. The Casino
3. Outside by the decks...oh yeah you can bring your port or whiskey
glass with you outside.
Hope you enjoy the cruise.
PS: here's a suggestion...
On mine, I think I will make each night a theme night.
(EG..Partagas night with a malt scotch, Montecristo night
with a Ron Zacapa Centenario, Romeo y Julieta night with Port)
