Totally up to the challenge! I've been ignored by bartenders even when purchasing and tipping for each drink. Dave, the frozen drink package is $22/per day, so for a 4 day, it would be $88. I know I don't drink that much, but on sea days, I will definitely have a couple by the pool. I don't even mind having one before dinner instead of a martini. They did say that some blended drinks were included, so if that's something like a rum punch or a sea breeze (which I've not tried) that would be fine, too. I like margaritas and I like them frozen better than on the rocks. If I get ignored, first I'll try waving some money, then I'll try duck tape (to pull up my wrinkles) Since I'm a mess from my cancer surgeries, that won't work anymore-drat!

My biggest part of the bill used to be the Bailey's. I can drink that like water. I finally convinced myself to buy a bottle and enjoy it at home where drinks were about $2.50/each. Also, they charge about $15 for a Grey Goose martini. That, too, I can buy and have at home. So now, I usually just have the foo-foo drinks.

Someone ignores our Penny ?? "No one puts Baby in the corner !" Oh wait that's a movie, well no one should ever ignore our Penny. I knew you were the right person for that challenge, then I will take the follow up. The Sunset Bar on the Century pictures remind me of a fantastic bar called the AfterDeck that I love last call at in Key West, so maybe a few extra Foo Foo drinks there.

I also have been ignored at some of the bars. Not often but on occasion.

What is the policy for carrying bottles on board Celebrity cruises? Is it 2 bottles at embarkation only? And is this rule limited to just wine or can you bring any liquor that you may want?

Hi PJ Cruise, welcome to Cruise-Chat. I hope you read the link that Dave posted. I just wanted to let you know that if you visit Celebrity's website, there are various packages available, including a wine package. Although they seemed to be having trouble with the wine package, there was a link to view what it provides. Hope you have a wonderful cruise.

Well, in Dave's much missed absence, Cruise Critic published
They seem to agree with the opinions here, who is the demographic ? Is binging being encouraged...I will be sure and ask the bartenders for an inside view. Penny you are on the project too ? Right ?

I'm on it! I'm packed and ready to go. Now I just have to get through 3 more days of work and we'll be on our road trip. By the time I get on board, I will definitely need one of those frozen concoctions
