Cruises provide juices during breakfast and Ice Tea & Lemonade during lunch/dinner but other times through the day you have to buy your own drinks. They allow you to bring non alcoholic drinks with you so I brought OJ, Pineapple juice and Capri Sun. I also bought my daughter the "Bootomless Bubbles" package on the ship for $5/day so she could get drinks whenever she liked. Now the most important thing for me was to get booze on the cruise. So I purchased these 32oz bottles that look like shampoo/conditioner (Cruise Flasks on amazon/ebay) and filled em up with plenty booze. My power surge got confiscated by security, but my booze made it safely to my room. Amen Halleluiah! Luckily I traveled with a smaller power surge because there was only ONE outlet in our room and as you can see that will do me NO GOOD!!!

My daughter and I are VERY attached to the matrix so it was very hard for us to detach. We spent the first 3 hours of the cruise sitting by the window as were still in Florida and still had a strong signal. After we lost signal we ate dinner and then went to take a nap because we had been awake since the crack of dawn driving down to Florida. Upon waking up I tried to convince to my child to go to the teen club, but she was like, “Naw son, I don't want to talk to people!” the only other option was BINGO and she decided we should do that instead. REALLY KID??? Low and behold we ended up winning $500 in BINGO that night.
Looking at the ship schedule of activities I knew we were going to have a rough few days ahead of us. I described the cruise as, “One of the most monotonous, controlled environments I've ever been in, but man o man did I get my drink on! “

One plus side is that Hennessy White is dirt cheap on a cruise. Only $35/each when you buy two.
