Also sailing the Epic in Feb….
We loved the Ice Bar, because as I type this, my house is completely open, and I am contemplating closing it back up and putting my a/c back on…in December!

It is a lot of fun!

It comes down to what you enjoy doing. Coming from a climate where it never even snows and I love hot weather I know it's not something I would enjoy. They would have to pay me to visit. However other people enjoy the cold and for them it would be fun. We all love doing different things. It's great to have choices. If it's something you would enjoy then it's worth the money. I don't think it's overly expensive.

I say try it !

it is pretty fun especially with a fun group. we put on some music and started dancing...that helped. you can also get straight vodka as well. so if you don't want the fufu drinks, I would definitely just order the vodka straight, no "rocks" needed.

We did the Ice Bar our first time on the Epic, and we had a blast. It is FUN. It is a novelty, we took plenty of great pics, and we were determined to stay in there as long as possible. We went prepared, with Jeans, Sweatshirt, socks and sneakers, and only lasted 25 minutes. I think everyone should try it once, we are glad we did
