Does anyone have the drink list for the Molecular Bar on the Solstice? I would also love to see the wine list from Blu if available. Thanks!

This is the menu bar from the Eclipse Dec. 2010.. I would think that Solstice would be the same:

Are the cocktails at the Molecular Bar covered under the Premium Drink Package. Looks like they cost more then the allowable amount. I did read that with the Premium Package you will only be charged the amount over the allowable per drink cost. Is this true at this bar, as we would love to try some of these interesting drinks.

I can't comment for the Molecular Bar, but the general rule is that the premium package gets you drinks up to $12. If the drink is more expensive than that you will be charged the full amount, not the difference.
The exception to this is in the specialty restaurants (on Infinity, last year)where we were just charged the difference.

I recall reading that cruises leaving from Southhampton already have the tip added to the price of the drink and that the premium drinks package increases to cover this. Think its any drink up to $13.75 which is almost $12.00 + 15%.
This may explain these drinks showing up as $13.75.

I can confirm Grantos, for the TA Southampton - Miami they added the gratuity fix to the $ 12 price but arriving the Caribbean they changed it back and the drinks are always covered by the PALL package.

Btw, I heard @ Silhouette in December from the Mixologist that changes in drink list where planned for January. Anybody noticed this ?

cheers

I should have said, these menus are from December 2011.
Also, we had the premium packages and I don't recall being charged anything extra at the Molecular Bar and we went there at least 3 times.
DH had a couple of ports that were over the $12 limit and was charged the difference one time. I had several glasses of $13 "champagne" inqsine and wasn't charged anything. The wine steward there was great and was tipped well!

The Molecular Bar is awesome! By far my favorite bar at sea. The drinks are really fun, interesting and tasty and on my past two cruises on ships with a Molecular Bar the bartenders were top notch (Alvaro on Equinox and Suzanna on Silhouette).

Just got off the Solstice and the menu is a little different now. Some of those drinks aren't on there anymore - although I know he was still making South of Rio - and there are a few new ones. The Tanned Russian is soooooooo good - wish I was back on there - love that bar. The mixologist on Solstice - "G" - is a real card.

We are just off the Solstice and went to the Molecular Bar many times. With the premium package, we never had to pay extra.

We had the Premium package on Solstice and we weren't charged for our drinks in Molecular. I had the Dragonfly and Scorpion's Kiss and never were charged anything.

One of the new ones I call the guacamole cocktail. It has avocado, mescal and tequila and it's whipped and it's WONDERFUL but I don't know the name. In Dec., Jr. Merino was onboard kind of suggesting his new drinks. They were all good but that guac in a glass was wonderful.

No, the Aqua Spa Cafe (open for breakfast and lunch) is your best bet for non alcoholic fruit smoothies and fresh squeezed fruits and veggies.

Sorry that I have misled some people, it appears that the policy can change depending on ship and /or waiter.

Ahh thnx for 1st information : obviously Scorpions's kiss and the mentioned guacamole cocktail are news on the menu.
In 3 weeks I can try them @ Equinox.
Looking forward meeting Alvaro, the mixologist and yes, had a wonderful time with Suzanna @ Silhouette.
