Do they "free pour" or do they use mini bottles???

Would I be better off ordering a shot of jack - and a diet coke on the side?

Most drinks are measured in a 3/4 oz shot glass and it amazes me how little booze goes into those drinks calling for more than one liquor. Have them make these drinks from scratch and you will see what I mean.

First of all, it should be a 1 oz shot glass. 1 Part=1 Oz. If they try to short change me I will get onto them about it.

I am a beer man myself, but I did enjoy a Yellowbird or three on the Glory last year. Don't even ask me what is in it.

I drink beer as well, but I always vary what I have. I will end up drinking a beer, then a shot, then a couple of mixed drinks, or some variation based on my mood.

Brad - so the saying about liqor before beer - never sicker is not true for you?>?

So I wonder if they would serve me just a shot??? Hmmm...

Do they do shots of buttery nipples and lemon drops - stuff like that too?

I typically don't even get affected until drink seven. High metabolism.

They most certainly will serve you whatever shot you desire. Buttery Nipples, Lemon Drops, Royal Flush, B-52's, Jager Bombs, Flaming Dr. Peppers (with no flame) and so on.

On the Glory last year Heather was feeling very little pain after the Captains cocktail party . She also tends to get very social during these times. We were at the night club with a few people we had met. And next thing you know I turn around and she has ordered shots of Patron Silver for every one we were with, roughly 10 people. At $12 a shot it was quite a bill . So yes they will serve you whatever shots you like.

Randy and Heather

Ahh finally a real drink. I go Double Long Island Ice Teas and yes you can get them at the Captian's cocktail party. Just tip your waiter and watch as the drinks come out. Here is my hubby the double fisted drinker. Yes that is two double long island ice teas.

Katlady, if we ever meet up on a cruise, I'll buy the first few rounds of Kamikazes, then we can chase them with your Double Long Island Ice Teas!!!!
