If you ever get a chance try mojitos. I like both the regular and the fruit flavor ones. If you like mai tais a passion fruit or mango mojito would be right up your alley.

A cruise just isn't a cruise with at least a couple of pina coladas. Just fits the atmosphere for me, and cool and delicious.....

Whatever your favorite drink is make sure they make from scratch as the pre mixed drinks are a real rip off and they are usually the special drink of the day served in the fancy glass.You will pay twice as much for the glass so ask for in normal glass.

Of course if you want the souvenir glass, you should order that glass the first time.

Bloody Mary's in the morning on the Lido deck!!


They were the "drink of the day" every morning on our cruise on the Destiny this past January. 3.95......

That's our suggestion.

Brad...
if you have a good bartender, there's only a "little" tomato juice in it. I love hot & spicy bloody mary's, they are often the morning drink special and I've had my share of them.
The Miami Vice on the ships are good,
The Pina Colada's are good.
But if you want a shooter, go for the Lemon Drops and chase it with beer. 8)

TC

(BTW why the "813" after your name?)

Not big on tomato juice. More of a fruit juice fan. Maybe a mimosa or tequila sunrise for me.

I'm not a tomato juice fan either. I prefer something a little more fruity.

Right on Lovin. Us fruit juice people need to stick together. Btw, try a tequila sunrise. I had one while I was up in New York City. It is like morning in your mouth.

The first thing Heather and I tell the bartender when we get on board is,"Bring me 2 Pina Coladas, One for each hand!!" Its been a tradition of ours ever since our first trip together, love that song.

After that I highly enjoy a good Mai Tai as well as a Miami Vice. I mean you have to start your trip off with a "Boat Drink" or 3, right??

Have a great time!!

Randy and Heather

Like getting Rum Punches while on the cruise, hey it's the Caribbean. However, my drink of choice is Jack Daniels with 7 UP. Don't know what's in them, but Kamikazes are pretty good too.

You can look up the recipe for a Kamikaze online. Very common drink.

Haven't had one, but I do believe that the BBC will be my new drink of choice. Sounds amazing, but can I ask for one at the bar and they will know what it is
