What is the best drink that you have had on a cruise?

On my last cruise - aboard the Oasis Of The Seas - my bartender friend Reynald made me his "special" rumrunner. He squeezed juices from limes and oranges (no mixes or pre-made mixers), carefully added various rums and other things, and it was really the best cocktail I've ever drank.

Three fingers of dark rum and a wedge of lime; nothing goes better with salt air and the smell of a warm teak deck .

Well, Dave's sounds pretty darn good too

The one's I get for free.

I guess if I had to pick just one it would be a BBC made with real bananas. Like Dave, I've made friends with a few ship bartenders over the years and they'll make drinks for me from fresh ingredients sometimes. I don't usually drink frozen drinks very often..but man, that hit the spot after walking all day in the heat.

For me.... its a drink called kiss on the lips. I get a kick out of ordering it from the waiters. Its made with peach schnapps, grenadine syrup, and mango mix.

Yum! I never heard of that one. I can see how ordering one might be, uh, intimidating.

It may not be classified as a "drink", but I always enjoy a hot cup of coffee with hot chocolate mixed in every morning on a cruise.

MamaofEnS, I'm kind of with you. My favorite drink on a cruise is a cup of tea, taken on an outside deck just before sunrise.

As for adult beverages, I almost always enjoy a Cosmopolitan as my first drink of the cruise. The best one was on SS Norway, in Club Internationale. Must have been the setting.
