My personal favorite is a pina colada or a marguerita.

Your tastes seem to run to drier beverages. I tend to drink waht you do except when I get to the Carribbean where it seems I must have the sweetest tropical dirnks.
Many of the suggestions offered to you are very sweet. You may not like them. Some are also very heavy & you can only have 1-2 because they are like drinking dessert.
I love mojitos if they are made with fresh spearmint. The drink is simple sugar, white rum, lime, club soda & spearmint. It's very refreshing. You may also try a Blue Hawaiian - the color alone is great.
My advice would be to read drink menus when you go out or read a bartending web site. Look at he ingredients to see if you might like something. On the ship go to a martini bar & if it's not busy, ask the bartender.
If you are out anywhere with good friends or family, try asking somebody for a sip.
I do agree with Trish...mojitos (pronounced 'mo-hee-toe) are the best!!(yum-o!!)...If the bartender has fresh lime, not the syrup..
I make these at home all the time( and at every Jimmy Buffett concert) They are truely one of the best cocktails!!
**It's been a lovely cruise**

If you like pina coladas, the ones on a cruise are the best! I now won't think of ordering one anywhere else. To me they are a treat - very filling so I usually just have one, maybe another later in the day. I will be having one on Feb 26th, as we cruise away from Port Canaveral.......
I'd never tried a drink with Kahlua because I was told it tasted like coffee, and I don't like coffee . On our last cruise they were giving out "samples" (in teeny, tiny cups) of liquor in the gift shop and I tried a White Russian. Yummmmm!
It tasted just like a milkshake (with a kick). Just be careful !
If you like Kahlua, buy it on the ship. When I got home and went to the liquor store the price was double what it was on the ship!
