  1. I like the double oaked, but I tend to go for more flavor in my whiskeys. I would prefer Knob Creek over the others if drinking neat. But I have not seen any in quite some time on the ships.
  2. Bourbon doesn't have to come from Kentucky. However, the bulk of it does. From wikipedia: The Federal Standards of Identity for Distilled Spirits state that bourbon made for U.S. consumption[21] must be: Produced in the United States[22] Made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn[23] Aged in new, charred oak containers[23] Distilled to no more than 160 (U.S.) proof (80% alcohol by volume)[23] Entered into the container for aging at no more than 125 proof (62.5% alcohol by volume)[23] Bottled (like other whiskeys) at 80 proof or more (40% alcohol by volume)[24] Jack meets the standard bourbon. Jack is also qualifies as a legal variant of Tennessee whiskey (which is a whole other political mess).
  3. If you are lucky you can get some mid tier bourbons. I have seen: Woodford Woodford Double Oaked Wild Turkey 101 Maker's Mark Jack Daniels
  4. The price of a suite that I had my eye on for the last week jumped by $400 / person on this new sale. No change in inventory.
  5. Haven't purchased yet. Will probably wait until we are closer to the event.
  6. We ate in Luminae every night. We ended up with the same wait staff each night. We were also seated in the same spot every night. We did tend to eat at the same time. They figure out everyone's patterns pretty quickly. I did have sushi on five for lunch one day and enjoyed it while reading a book. It is not amazing, but it is more than acceptable for the price.
  7. Eventually booked Hotel Milano. Now we are debating on the $40 tickets or the $60 tickets. Will probably end up with the $60 tickets so we can get in earlier.
  8. You technically had to badge in on the Retreat Deck on the Summit a couple of weeks ago. A couple of times, they had someone standing there when the badge reader was malfunctioning. The staff knows the suite guests after the first day. I really enjoyed it and spent quite a bit of time up there. I didn't have to compete for chairs down at the pool. Unfortunately, there was one day when the whirlpool was out of action. I had to use the showers up there quite a bit to cool off. It would have been nice if they had put a walk up bar and some bathrooms up there. A cool water pool would have been nice as well, but there were really only ten of us up there at any time.
  9. Yeah, been looking at the Hotel Milano. Probably not horrible for just a room to crash for a single night. Sheraton just opened up some rooms today. But they are a little proud of them based on the pricing. 🤯
  10. We just switched our return flight to Sunday so we can attend. Now I need to find a hotel room in OSJ.
  11. My wife does not snorkel, so she just stayed on the ship during the optional deep water snorkel. I was then buddied up with another person. It was hot when we were there in February 2019. I did not use the wetsuit, just swim trunks. However, I was the only one to do so.
  12. Most of the bars have them outside of the Martini Bar. On the Summit, both of the outside bars had them.
  13. Not a huge selection of whisk(e)ys. The Macallan they had is targeted towards the travel industry called Quest. I was not impressed with it. You might find some Woodford Double Oaked. I once asked for a whiskey and coke to see what they would give me. She poured Seagram's 7. I had to pour it down the drain. 🤣
  14. I think someone posted in another thread that it was Havensight. That is what I am hoping as we were just in Crown Bay and there is not much going on over there.
  15. I am going to go against the grain and say that I like the updates. But I like modern contemporary. We are just off the Summit and thought the service was just fine. My only complaint was the stupid chair that did not slide under the desk in the sky suite. That is my big "what were they thinking" moment.
