Will room service deliver a pitcher of lemonade, iced tea or the other free drinks? What about at the bar? Basically, if a couple of us were going to hang out on the balcony and wanted some drinks, could we get it without having to order each glass one by one at the bar?

Mike, as long as you make the trip worth their while monetarily, you will find room service stewards will bring you just about anything that you could possibly desire. Of course, you will still be charged for premium beverages if you order them. "Free" beverages will still be free regardless of the quantity ordered.

Yeah, I figured a decent tip can make most things happen.

And I'm going to stop beating around the bush here - I was just trying to avoid the typical alcohol conversation. Since I will be bringing one bottle of booze with me, I was mostly wondering if I should bring some sort of mixer (like powdered drink mix) , or will it be easy to get some off the ship (just interested in the free mixers, i.e. lemonade). I just want to have it while relaxing on the balcony before dinner, or maybe at night before hitting the bars or clubs (where I WILL be buying drinkings from the ship).

As long as it is in your checked luggage, you won't have the slightest problem. I will give you a word of caution. It the drink mix is white, make sure that it stays in it's original packaging. If it starts to leak, resist the urge to dump it into a plastic bag and seal it with duct tape.

Haha, good call on the drink mix. I don't need that to happen again....jk

I'm not worried at all about getting my booze through, so that shouldn't be an issue. Just wanted to make sure I will have something to mix it with if I were to leave my blow...er, lemonade mix at home. Drinking straight vodka from a plastic bottle isnt exactly my cup of tea.

I want to echo Ken's sentiments.

Room service will only bring individual portions of juices and drinks. You will have to request them in the amount you need. They don't bring pitchers.

Thanks Dwayne, thanks pretty much what I was looking for. I'll get some drinks at the bar and bring them to my room.

Robert, I didnt realize that fruit punch was also an option - def going to try that!
