Yes, thanks its a great picture. We had such fun on the St. John trip I really wished we had a done similar one on Tortolla, especially the one that went to the Baths. I also liked the one of Jelena. She was the CM in charge of what turned out to be my private whiskey tasting.

Congratulations!

Unfortunately, no member of my entourage is allowed to cruise without me. I was thinking about January however.

If / When there is a "next time" for Tortola, we would also sail to the Baths and swim to shore......

We probably would have signed up for the whiskey tasting, but it wasn't offered when I checked the tasting schedule (before sailaway). They probably added shortly thereafter. Saved me from myself - I don't like whiskey any more than vodka - but would have tried it for the experience!!

You're welcome for the picture, I have more - stay tuned!!

Who went to Ricky Kalmon's hypnosis shows? We were there, she got hypnotized, I just watched.

So, to whom ever went, what did you think of him?
We thought he was fabulous! We roared and had a great time, especially when it became personal.....and weird....but awesome!

Cognac Tasting

This was the last of our beverage tastings for this cruise. It was held at the Cafe Cove, hosted by Rodolfo. In this picture, you can see Rodolfo, his map, his swirling technique, along with fellow disboarders. We met the fellow on the right at a Tables in Wonderland dinner at The Wave (Contemporary) on May 21st. We discovered, sitting across from him, that he, his wife and a couple friends would be on the same cruise a couple of days later. After that, we saw quite a bit of them. He seemed to know as much - or more - than Rodolfo about the cognac.






We learned that whoever orders that last drink from the bottle at a bar gets to keep the bottle. Apparently, there are people who seek out the bottle wherever they go, because this bottle, empty, is worth $300. In that light, the $109 per shot charge would be a no-brainer. I think. Unfortunately, there were still 6 shots left in THIS bottle. We did not buy.






In this cozy setting, there wasn't much room to maneuver - it isn't artistic, but you get the picture. Four "shots".






Closing thoughts:

Would I do it again?
Probably. I've lost my taste for stuff this strong a little. But I really liked it at one time.

Would I recommend it? - definitely, IF you like cognac

Is it worth it? - there are multiple way of analyzing "value for the dollar". This is my random thought for the moment:
The wine tasting was $12, and you got about DCLBar$10 in wine.
The beer tasting was $12, and you got about DCLBar$6 in beer
The martini tasting was $15 (pretty sure), and you about - I don't know, I don't drink martini's - break even, maybe?
The cognac tasting was $20, and I estimate was got about $50 in cognac (if you bought 4 shots at the DCL bar). I hope that doesn't ruin everything and result in higher prices for the next guy, but that's how I saw it.

Anyone else have an opinion?


Did anyone keep a placemat? Have the "listing"?

We loved him, thought his first family show in the WD theater was the best. The adult one was funny, but some was in a little bad taste for me. The guys singing were the best.
