All sold out within 20 minutes of Platinum being able to book.
Not a surprise since the Maiden Voyage was primarily sold out on during the extra tiered booking window for Platinum Castaway Club members. I am a bit surprised they didn’t expand the expanded tiered Platinum booking to the onboard offerings.
My world of Gin shows $60 not $50
I hope they get better tasting guides… the last two I did on the Fantasy they didn’t know their whiskey’s very well.
Understatement of the century.
World of Old Fashion… thats my only weakness.
While I “Wish” my wife and I could be on board for any one of these. It stands to reason these booked/sold out quickly. We have had great luck with our drink hosts on the Wonder when we do these. I learned some tricks of the trade.
Agree, never had any tastings that were less than spectacular where we are engaged and learn a bunch
Do the prices of these vary on ship/ itinerary? I will be going on my first disney cruise this summer! We will be on the Fantasy.
