QG drinks

Recommended Posts

That's very useful, thank you for posting.

Nice to see Pimms making the official list.

Does that vary on differing QG grade suites because when we on QE in 2017 in a Q6 suite the list was nowhere near as comprehensive and very few choices of whisky and there was no brandy at all on the list and when I asked our butler he said no and ended up having a Famous Grouse whisky and there was no choice of Glenfiddich or Jameson's either.

I was the first to mention the new and expanded drinks list, early last year and I also  replied to you last September when you mentioned the lack of choice on the QG drinks list. I said how it had been expanded this ['18] year which meant there was a considerably wider choice than your '17 list.

The extended list was not offered us in June last year on QM2. Nevertheless, we obtained what we asked for despite the items not being on the list.

Thank you very much just what I was looking for. Can see contreau on list but no tequila for making margaritas but as tequila is cheaper than say Glenfiddich should be no problem

Excellent, I will no longer have to write Johnny Walker Black in my crabby hand for my spirit choice. Well done Cunard.

We have asked for Sambuca before and received it. Hope we can still get it in July.

Good morning Cruiseluvva.

 

I'm in harmony with you once more this morning.

 

While our gin requirement will never change and is always easily met requests for a particular New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, or whatever at the time tickles our fancy, has also been met despite it not appearing on the 'list'...

We are fairly easy going and also extremely light drinkers - me especially - but they have always met our needs. Long may it last 🙂

Do you get mixers supplied foc in the fridge in QG?

 

Yes. We had Britvic, Schweppes, and Fever Tree tonic at different times. Presumably, if you are fussy, they will give you the one you prefer.

Last year on QM2, our butler even filled the cupboard with beer in case of emergencies:

So you could make an emergency liferaft out of the empty cans? 😀 So thoughtful.

Well, I did make a model ship out of junk a few years ago in the competition:

They are also assiduous in providing generous quantities of lime and/or lemon, providing you remember to ask your butler.

Usually they put a plate of slices, covered in cling film, in the fridge, and replenish as necessary. Ice bucket refilled ditto.

Just got off the Queen Vic. The butler gladly got me a bottle of Crown Royal, for my suite,  which was not on the liquor list. It never hurts to request your favorite brand!
