  1. I don't think it will work because they can't swipe your card completely through. And last year on Escape I had my card punched with no problem. Just go to guest services and have them do it. Elvis
  2. It's what I do best! And by the way, my head hurts! Elvis
  3. I just want to go on record as saying that the only true martini is either a gin or vodka martini. Jay has stated that the only martini is a gin martini. Well, James Bond drinks vodka martinis. Do you want to tell him that his drink is not a martini? I didn't think so! Those other drinks that call themselves martinis (Chocolate martinis and the like) are abominations, not worthy of the name "martini". I'm not saying they shouldn't exist, but they should not be called martinis! Elvis You may be able to tell I've had two martinis tonight!
  4. I tell them to shake it till they think it's cold, then shake it some more. You know, a martini is the easiest drink in the world to make. Likewise, it's the easiest drink in the world to screw up! I like mine with either Belvedere, Chopin, or Ketel One vodka. Very very dry and very very cold. I take mine with olives, my "She who must be obeyed" takes hers with an orange slice. I agree, one's not enough! But if II have two I run the risk of getting stupid! Three, and I'm down right ridiculous! It may take some searching on your part before you find the best martini bar on the ship, but when you do.....well, let me just say, you will taste the nectar of the gods! Enjoy, Elvis
  5. Will be on Escape in a month. After reading your review all I can say is "I'm hungry!!!!!" Elvis
  6. It all depends. If I have a beer (not often) I have a Pilsner Urquel. I don't even know if Escape has them. Usually I have a Ketel One martini, very cold, very dry, straight up with olives. More than one of those and I run the risk of getting stupid, and no one wants that!!!! Elvis
  7. I agree! In my 37 years as a police officer I have found the best course of action involving a fight is the winner goes to jail and the loser goes to the hospital and then to jail! Elvis
  8. The refurbishments look great. By the way, this thread is excellent. What I don't like is the fact that they replaced the Cigar Lounge with the Diamond Lounge. It doesn't make sense to me. The cigar lounge was a revenue generating venue. Everyone in there was always buying drinks. The Diamond Lounge is just the opposite. Everyone in there (including me) is partaking of the free drinks and food. Now I guess we cigar smokers are restricted to a section on the open deck. Elvis
  9. Where did I say that those 5 martinis are going to be the only drink I have? Elvis
  10. 5 martinis a day? You are my kind of people!!! I can do 5 martinis before lunch!!!! (although I would have to take an afternoon nap and might possibly sleep through dinner!) I've never cruised on NCL before, but the UBP on other lines were always worth it. Bon Voyage!!!!! Elvis
  11. I'm on Escape in May. I'll let you know about the Martini tastings. I enjoy a classic martini, but am always curious to learn. Elvis
  12. No pear martini for me! I'm a purist! I only drink classic martinis! The only variation I will tolerate is either vodka or gin! A martini is a test I give to a bar. If they can make a good martini, they can usually make anything. Like I said before, martinis are the easiest drink to make, but it's also the easiest drink to screw up. I do have to admit that "Tobacco Road" sounds like a bar that will make a good martini! I'll let you know. Elvis 79 days to go!
  13. So you'll be aboard in October? (I assumed you meant October 2019! October 2918 is a ways off!) I'll let you know where you can get a good martini. Elvis
  14. Trouble is that most people, me included, use the Diamond Lounge for the free drinks and free food. They are not making money on the place. The cigar lounge always had a good crowd in there spending money! Elvis
