Favorite frozen drinks

My favorite as well! Not to be confused with the similar, and in my opinion not quite as good, miami vice (pina colada and strawberry daiquiri for those that don't know).

I think a lava flow & Miami vice are the same thing.  Different cruise lines call the same drink different things.

Nope. People often think they are though, as they are quite similar. Miami vice is pina colada and strawberry daiquiri mixed together (combination of two frozen drinks). A lava flow is a pina colada with strawberry syrup. 

 

The lava flow lacks the lime/citrus flavor the frozen strawberry daiquiri brings to the Miami vice. But you are correct in that there are bartenders out there that think they're the same and give you the same drink. I only discovered they were different myself when someone gave me a Miami vice insisting it was lava flow. I haven't run into many though - so maybe they're handing lava flows to those who order Miami vice?

Have to agree with those who voted for BBC. Hubby and I don't typically drink frozen drinks but I sent him to the bar on our last cruise on the Escape and it was love at first sip. We really enjoyed them when we were in the pool area  - very refreshing on a hot Caribbean day.

The best BBC I ever had was a couple of years ago when I asked the Atrium bartender to add a real banana.   Maybe those of you in the Haven can get some special treatment like that.     Extra good😋

Thank you for that.  I prefer the pina colada/strawberry daiquiri drink .

On a RCCL sailing last year, we asked a bartender to whip up this blue masterpiece: Blue Curaçao, Banana Liqueur, dark rum, cream (or ice cream base) and ice. Yum!

Our favorite tradition is a Miami Vice. This time our daughter will be turning 21 while on the cruise. We will be having some drinks for sure!

How is it after 14 cruises and a lot of pina colada’s I have never had a BBC?  I can’t wait to try one!

Mango Madness which I am assuming is the same as the Mango Meltdown that several have already mentioned

They aren't traditionally frozen but some other yummy tropical drinks include: 

 

Blue Hawaiian 

 

Classic Mojitos 

 

Caipirinha (be careful it's rum, lime & sugar & packs quite a punch)

 

Cadillac Margarita -- contains Grand Mariner & OJ, it's got a softer smoother taste then a regular lime margarita

 

NCL's infamous Rebellious Fish

 

Painkiller

 

Sex on the Beach (raspberry) or Sex on the Bar (orange) 

 

Cheers everyone!
