I think I learned my lesson on my December 26, 2006 cruise on Carnival out of Jacksonville. I don't think we made it out of the harbor yet when I passed out from too many sweet unbrella drinks. Never made it to dinner and pretty much mooned the cabin stewart when he came in to turn the bed down and I was already in it. My lesson was to not drink so many sweet unbrella drinks and stick to beer which I can drink all day long. I thnk my largest tab was during ny second cruise to Bermuda on the NCL Dreamward. We had a large group. We drank a lot (I was much younger then) It had to be up around $600 for the two of us. I know we didn't drink all of that as I am sure we took turns getting cocktail for the other member's in our group. (this was back in 1995 there abouts)
In my younger days, consumption was up from where it is now....by about 500%. But after one particular night when I dragged my sorry *** out of someone's home, landed in the front yard and unable to move when the automatic sprinklers went on, I promised myself that wouldn't happen again. That next day, I felt so god-awful, it was a completely wasted day. Life is too short to waste days. You only get so many of them.
