We got a printout of our folio, a list of purchases, and found they had overcharged us for the beer tasting. The cost should have been $20, but they charged $35. I found the original paper they had given us with the prices and brought that to the customer service desk. On the paper, the maximum number of people for the tasting was 35. I think when they charged us, they looked at the maximum number of people and put in that number instead of the actual price. When I pointed it out, they removed the charge and said it would not cost anything since it was their mistake. I was not trying to get something free. I just wanted to pay the correct price. It was a very nice gesture that I will remember.
About an hour after the beer tasting, Kate had a tequila tasting. Since I can’t drink tequila, I just sat with her and listened. It was very interesting. One of the things they had as a chaser was some type of juice with tabasco sauce in it. I think it was orange juice. In addition to the traditional salt and lime, they had cinnamon to take with certain tequilas. One of the tequilas was black. It was Patron XO Cafe, a coffee flavored tequila. Kate liked that one. Miraslov came around and gave everyone a splash of Bailey’s in their Patron XO. It was called a baby Guiness. Kate liked that as well. Miraslov mentioned a drink made with the Patron XO and something else, I can’t remember. It was called a “Dirty Mexican.” I thought that was more than a little out of line. They need to come up with another name for it.
Our last dinner was back in Animator’s Palate. We took a few photos with Yusuf and Harry. We will miss them. They did a great job. For the last evening, the entire staff did a show at the end. Mickey came out and all of the servers paraded around the dining room with flags of different countries.
After the tasting, I went down to the Cadillac lounge for a farewell drink with Miraslov and the guys. Randy and Cecilia were at the cognac tasting, and they were going down, so I joined them. I thought about having a martini, but I had another cognac, because I wanted to end the evening with that taste. The bar closed at midnight, and we went our separate ways.
Today was also Father's Day. The whole cruise was a great Father's Day gift!
