Default Lounge - bar questions

Okay, this may be a silly question. If you go to one of the lounges or bars, do you have to order a drink? We never even went to any of the bars on our first cruise. We were real fuddy duddy's.....We have some friends going with us this time and it would be nice to go enjoy the bands, but none of us are really drinkers. Didn't know if they have a minimum drink order or not....

No not at all!! No minimum requirement. You can order soda and water if you prefer and/or you can just sit, relax and watch the entertainment. The Piano Bar Lounges are fun to participate in.

Hi Floridanamaw,

As far as I know you can sit anywhere on the ship without ordering anything! Of course the servers will be coming around every five minutes to ask what you want! IMO, I'd order a soft drink or water and sip it very slowly .

Thanks. I didn't think you had to order anything, just wanted to make sure. Maybe this time we will actually go IN some of the bars or lounges. Thanks again........

That's ironic, I never went anywhere BUT the bars and lounges last time I cruised!

They are alot of fun, regardless of whether you drink or not. Have a good time....

Told you we were "fuddy duddy's. We were almost always in our cabin by 10:00 or 10:30. Missed so many things because we just didn't get out and find them. When it's just the two us of we tend to hibernate. The BF is more of a "do nothing" person, I am a "do everything" person. So we ended up doing very little. We have friends going this time so I think we will be out and about much more. I hope so anyway.

<<The BF is more of a "do nothing" person, I am a "do everything" person. So we ended up doing very little.>>

Now that doesen't sound fair. Tell the BF you are going to be the "Cruise Director" on this cruise <>

Take it from another "do everthing" person tell the BF to get on out there and enjoy what is offered!

Have fun!

Mark
