"Ultimate Suntan"
1oz Bacardi Rum
1/4oz DeKuyper Creme de Banana
1/4oz DeKuyper Blackberry Brandy
1 1/2oz sweet & sour mix
1 1/2oz orange juice
Float Grenadine
Blend all ingredients but grenadine together, pour over ice, and float grenadine on top.

For me it is the Fun Ship Special or a Bahama Mama. Never had a Kiss on the lips or the Twilight Zone. Have been reading a lot about those 2 drinks. Plan to try both on my cruise on the Breeze December 1st

Love me a twilight zone, Miami vice, pina coladas as well as the mojitos. I have yet to find a place in town that makes a monitor just as good as on the Freedom. I joked with one of my friends that I had to book another cruise in order to get a proper mojito. Sad thing is it is true and I'm booked for on the breeze in may

Not a beer drinker and their daily drinks give me heartburn from the citrus in them so for me it's either a Miami Vice or a Mudslide.

I like em all! :/ Seriously. But I have a question. Has anyone else noticed that if you order the drink from a bar tender, as apposed to the waiter that is carrying the made in volume funship best day ever drinks, that the bar drink is more potent... I noticed on my last cruise while on the lido, I was ordering the premade drinks and seriously could have drank them all day and night like water! The next day I ordered exclusively from the bar and had to quit after 4 drinks and holed up in my cabin the rest of night!

While I always enjoy a few fruity umbrella drinks I am usually a beer drinker. On our recent B2B I became a fan if the hurricane wave for sure. Then one night I was sitting in the ocean plaza I was looking at the drink menu and ordered a tiramisu martini. As the bartender was sliding it across the bar, the guy sitting next to me said, "you won't be able to drink more than one of those an it will knock you on your a$$!" I took my first sip and replied, "Watch me!" I think I had three that night and about 10 before the end of the week. They are so good that I hope my wife gives me a martini shaker for Christmas so I can make my own!!!

DEFINITELY...watching the waiters carrying around those drinks and the ice melting. I Always order direct from the bartender. He gets the tip then.

Love love love LOVE the Pineapple-Chipotle martini. So good I actually order the Monin syrup they use to make it by the case now. Just enough heat to really take your time and enjoy. Hands down my most fave martini ever.

Close second is the Fresh Italian--made with Aperol, which is used in Italy as an aperitif. Fantastic fresh tasting drink..often ordered post dinner in the casino.

Followed by the "on deck" favorite the Mango Tango--big girl slushies! Nom Nom!
