Tip - Sign up for their mailing list. A few months ago, I was thinking about going on this so decided to sign up for the mailing list. About a month later, I got notice that their "Sea of Wines" tickets on certain days were BOGO (for those who don't shop at Publix, Buy One, Get One free!). Not only were they BOGO, but now they included a wine tasting of six wines. Because of the discount, my hubby and I decided to take his family - mom, dad, and sister as a gift. We had a great time! We boarded right when the wine tasting started. I ended up sampling five, my hubby and father-in-law had time to sample all six. They were very generous samples too - almost half a glass for each one. There were three red wines and three white wines. We were given a card, and each sample we got the bartender signed the card so we couldn't go back to his station. There were also a few appetizers passed out at this point. I think we got 2-3 each.
Then, we went down to our table to order for dinner. Almost everyone got something different and I think we all enjoyed our meals. I personally got the ravioli and thought it was some of the best I had ever had. For dessert, I got the chocolate item and felt this could have been better - it was a little dry (and I normally love the chocolate item!). Appetizers were extra, but salad or soup was included, so I didn't see a need for one anyway. Also, we were sat by a window during the meal and we were able to watch the port go by, which was very enjoyable.
After the meal, we went out on the deck. My hubby and I did a little dancing. They played requests, so he requested our song. We also did the electric slide, cupid slide, etc. We had a good time. Not that many people dancing though.
I thought it was a fun trip and would do it again, but not at regular price. Look for specials and you will probably find one. Also, they do charge mandatory 18% gratuity on the regular price of the cruise.
