Please add my cabin mate, Marilyn to my listing. I thought her name was already listed. Also, My favorite martini is Rockin' Royal Toasted Almond Martini! Notice I put Rockin' instead of Rocking. That way our official name is in the description. :p

Good morning Franky....here are the graphics I emailed you last night, plus a couple extra I found....still on the hunt for a "bouncing / jumping" one.
you or Eddie should be able to copy/paste them from this if you like.

And count me in for one of the Rockin' Royals Chocolate martini's - sounds YUMMY.

Eddie and I discussed hosting a tasting vs a regular martini party and we recommend that we have a plain ole martini party. That way each of us can purchase exactly what we like to drink. Also, we pay $6.99 vs $30.00 Many folks will only want one martini.

Eddie has agreed to work through Joyce (she is the M&G contact with Princess) to find the perfect location and to see if Princess will give us a special discount on our martinis and some snacks. Even paying $4.99 or $5.99 is better than $7.99.;)

Remember, those of us that are Platinum, Elite and Suite guest will be invited to the daily cocktail party from 5 to 7 and will be able to get some of the martinis at the $3.99 rate. Well, the Cosmo and the Chairman for sure.

That's it for now. Now off to do my weekly housework. Wish I had a maid :) and I could play on computer all day. LOL

Thanks for adding us to the party list. We are not hard core martini drinkers but we do love the foo-foo Cosmo. :D


Glad we are not doing the tasting as I've gone to a couple and its not worth the price you pay. The same presentation they charge you for can be seen in the atrium for free.

I imagine Princess will make us change the time for this event as all the lounges are usually open for pre-dinner cocktails around 5:00 pm.

You make a valid point. If and when this happens, we will need to work through it. I learned a long time ago that if you don't ask, the answer is always "NO".

Good Morning RRMC members!

As you can see our party list grew overnight. (39) One couple slid by without us adding to the list, we had hands waving :D enthusiasm, also some fun CA ;) winos wanted to join us, plus Barb and Roy sent their post to another thread. With so many threads… it can be confusing. So having said all of that, WELCOME ALL and we hope to find the perfect location to meet and enjoy a delicious “Martini.”

Many of us are Platinum, Elite or Suite passengers and if we find that we like Bellini’s, and it is a large, that may just be the place. That was one nice thing about the Ruby Skywalker Lounge – we could find a few areas for large groups. Many times around 5:00 pm we've walked past the Crown Grill, Wheelhouse and they are empty. Maybe those are options. For now, we have to find out what the ROYAL has to offer and if Princess will assist.

As with all social gathering, some of you will drop out and some will not show up, so with the perfect number of “39” …. those that do attend will become “official” members of the Rockin Royals Martini Club.

Also, just a reminder that Eddie and I do not plan to request a martini sampling party. The feed back from others is they rather order their favorite martini, and do not wish to pay $30 when they may only want one martini.

I hope all of this sounds OK to everyone!

Happy Week-end to All!

Eddie & Franky, I have added Jackie & Rich to the Martini Group and my drink is the Rockin Royal Milky Way Martini:D
If the group has grown too big just put us on the waitlist, but I think that since we are not having a specific martini tasting why not just use the lounge for platinum/elite (we can bring those who are not in as friends, I believe) so we can all attend and just order what we like to drink. Just an idea so everyone can be included.

Franky, do you play Mah Jongg? There will be a lot of us playing on the crossing. Great game.
Joyce, my cabin mate, Marilyn, absolutely loves to play mah jongg. She would really appreciate it if you could add her to the group. On the RHR cruise, I always knew where to find her -- The Crown Grill, of course! :p

Randy and Sandy keep dropping off the list, but we were confirmed and we are on the official list. I think it is because of cutting and pasting. Can I jump up and down once again since we are on yor confirmed list? Thanks, Sandy

Eddie & Franky, I have added Jackie & Rich to the Martini Group and my drink is the Rockin Royal Milky Way Martini:D
If the group has grown too big just put us on the waitlist, but I think that since we are not having a specific martini tasting why not just use the lounge for platinum/elite (we can bring those who are not in as friends, I believe) so we can all attend and just order what we like to drink. Just an idea so everyone can be included.


Jackie
Jackie, I was thinking the same thing and think this is an excellent idea. We could pick a night when the specialty drink is something most everyone would like such as cosmo or chairman of the board. Anyone who doesn't like those drinks can order what they want. That way we would also have some nice appetizers provided! :p

Lynda, looks like Rich and I didn't make the list so we will just do a Martini Tasting on our own up at the Platinum/Elite lounge which I thought was a good idea but, alas, since I wasn't the one doing the organizing I have no pull on where it gets held.

We'll just do our own thing and anyone who wants to join up there is more than welcome - that's probably where you will find us anyway sometime between 5 & 8.

Greetings All,

What fun to see so many martini lovers out there. This party is full, closed and has no wait list. We did not mean to offend or aggravate anyone that did not get on the list. We are just trying to have a little fun.:)

Now having said that... I agree with Jackie and Lynda ... we can meet on any and every afternoon 5:00 - 7:00 pm at the "Lounge Party for Elite, Platinum, and Suite Guest" at Bellini's. They make great Cosmos and Chairman tini's. The official list that Eddie and I have can not be cut and paste so don't worry about your name dropping off. Eddie has a list with your CC name and hopefully your cabin number.

This little party is the same as tours. I have attempted to sign up for many and they filled before my posting was viewed. Happens to all of us.

Have a wonderful week-end! :)NC is in full bloom!

Ah the perils of so many threads and lack of time to keep up! We didn't get on the list either, so will probably have to drown our sorrows in the Platinum/Elite lounge too! Never mind, it will all be good fun!

Sue, absolutely agree, so many threads, so little time. Everyone will have a great time and we can all get to know each other over the next 18 months. That is, if I can keep up with all the boards. May just wait till final payment then get more involved as the threads should quiet down a lot by then as I know we will probably lose some people as priorities change.

See you at the Platinum/Elite lounge.

Martinis can be bad for your health; evidence this story:

A lady staggers in to a bar; it's evident she's already had a few. Says to the bartender "Hey Mack, give me a martooni and put an olive in it". So he does and she drinks it right down.

After a minute or two she says "Hey Mack, give me another martooni and put an olive in it". So he does, and she drinks that one down too.


A few minutes later she says "Hey Mack, give me another martooni but leave the olive out. It's giving me heartburn". The bartender walks over to her an says "Okay lady but lets get a few things straight first. My name isn't Mack, it's Joe; it's not martooni, it's martini, and Lady, that olive ain't giving you heartburn;it's your t*t in the ashtray!"

What I hate about this roll call with all these confusing threads and finding them, people seem like vultures jumping on everything posted.
You and I know there will be many cancellations, people not showing up for activiities etc. Thanks for including me on the Almalfi coast tour.

If I book any private tours on my own, I will email you and ask if you are interested. I will not post any on these confusing roll calls.

I have found that just adding a bookmark for the 18 day Maiden, Red Hot Rubie, the Royal Maiden spreadsheet and Rockin Royals on my IPad home screen keeps everything simple to follow.

Maybe, the Martini get together should be posted on the spreadsheet as closed. I know that some off the tours are posted there and others are not.

Hello Everyone,

Eddie and I agreed to be co-host for a Martini Party on the Royal. Since he has canceled this cruise I recommend that "all martini lovers" meet at the lounge where they host the 'Platinum, Elite, Suite Cocktail Social" on a sea day (that is not a formal night) and we will have a lounge, complimentary appetizers and we can order our favorite martini. Hope this sounds OK to everyone!

We attended a "Facebook" Martini Party on the Emerald a couple years ago. Princess approved us meeting in Adagio at 4:00 pm, however, they would not provide appetizers and requested that we not bring in food from Horizon. They did not want a mess for their 5:00 pm regulars.;)

Our "Rockin Royal Martini Party" grew to 30 and had to be capped since we did not have a clue where we would be able to meet. As you know Crooners, Wheelhouse, Explorers Lounge are open to all passengers at 5:00 pm and they will not support a private party at 5:00 pm. Also, all of these lounges have other activities at 4:00 pm such as Trivia in Explorer and Spa seminars at Wheelhouse.

Since Eddie has canceled and I have other socials and a tour I'm organizing, just thought it best to cancel.

Or "any and all" Rockin Royal martini drinkers can just show up at Bellini's at 5:00 pm on October 23rd. If that is a formal night we can move to the 24th. Hopefully Princess will have adequate bar staff for a large group of martini drinkers.

I will discuss this with Stacey Anderson the Group Services Coordinator for Royal.

Finally we have a venue for the martini party! Yippy!!

As you know Eddie was the co-host but he has since canceled. I have asked someone else to take Eddie place so I will share more tomorrow.

This is the list from March 2012 excluding those who canceled the cruise. This list also includes a wait list that Eddie kept just in case lots of folks canceled the party.

I don't know that all the folks listed below are still on the cruise. If you see names of anyone that you know canceled please let us know.

Cheers! ;)
