There are more specialty drinks on board than one can imagine. The two you mentioned are just the starting place. The list goes on forever...and every bartender has half a dozen of his own to make especially for you. Just remember the headaches in the morning! DFD1
Maureen, they have very good after dinner specialty coffees in the Explorers Lounge, with a price special on one of them each evening. My favorite is the Prince Charles coffee made with Drambuie. Each one is made with a different liqueur and topped with whipped cream...yummy!!.....jeab
Thank heavens they make mojitos! The last 2 times I've ordered them I got a bit of a blank stare, then the waitress returned and said they hadn't any mint. A friend said I was testing the mid west with my fancy drinks!
Guess I'm just old fashioned. I enjoy the standard Gin Martine (using Bombay Sapphire) on the rocks with a lemon twist. My wife's favorite is a Strawberry Daquari. For after dinner I enjoy Peppermint Schnapps on the rocks. Settles the stomach.
Anyone ever tried a "Miami Vice". These are popular on Carnival ships, but I taught the bartender on the Contellation how to make one. Maybe I'll have to do the same on Zuiderdam. That drink is delicious and if you put extra rum in it...uh, uh, uh!!!
I am not into the foo foo umbrella drinks but stick with my beer, Red Stripe being a favorite. My wife drinks a variety of those foo foo things and I can't keep up with what they are. It seems like she tries them all.
