Favorite Sail Away Drink?

Recommended Posts

I normally drink beer. But I think I'll celebrate the Sail Away with something special. Maybe something more than my favored scotch & water. Maybe a tropical fruity drink, like a Hurricane. What's yours?

BBC, Baileys, banana, and coconut. Mmmmmm.

Shots of Patron silver with either a Corona, Pacifico or a Red Stripe!

We normally just grab a couple of whatever the drink of the day is.

We drop the bags in the room, then head up for some drinks. I drink fun ships until the mint is distributed, then its mojitos.  So either are a good choice.

Nothing says "Caribbean Sail Away" to DH and I like a tall, cold Rum Punch 🍹

During the cruise we drink Crown, Scotch and/or the random Dirty Martini ... but Sail Away is a Festive Occasion !!!  😀😎😉

A Kiss on the Lips. Only 3 days and 15 hours until I get my next one!

That's a great way to start a cruise!  But it'd be hard for me to pull that off, since I usually cruise solo. :classic_wink:

 

So on my last two cruises, I had a Fun Ship and a Yellow Bird, respectively.

Can anyone tell me if this Funship Special pricing is pretty close to accurate?:

 

"The Fun Ship" drink price for a 15oz souvenir glass (refill the glass for $6,75) $7,50

 

If  it is, I'm going to have a reeeaallllll good time! ☺️

A Miami Vice is my 1st drink onboard. I'm not a fan of the Funship DOD-- don't like the apricot brandy in them.  

 

A Lava Flow sounds really good-- I must try one my next cruise!

I am a bottomless bubbles kind of guy, but do want to try something alcoholic after arriving onboard.  But don't know much about the selections you have all mentioned.  will have to read up, don't want to experiment on what might taste good.

We usually drink the champagne that we brought on board.

No one wants of experiment with a $6.00+ drink.  Ask what's in it before buying.

 

I can't speak for anyone else, but I've never had a bad Drink of the Day. 🍹

Right now I'm torn between the Red's Rum Treasure from the Rum Bar (hands down my favorite drink on the ship) and a Twilight Zone (favorite frozen drink on the ship).  It will probably be the Red's Rum Treasure with a burger from Guy's for lunch.  21 days!!!!
