Royal Caribbean Classic: BBC

15 Oct 2015

Some aspects of a Royal Caribbean cruise are experiences that become forever associated with being onboard one of these amazing ships and certain drinks onboard are among those moments.

Guests who enjoy a tasty, creamy cocktail that is almost like a dessert, often order a Banana Baileys Colada, better known as a BBC on their Royal Caribbean cruise.

The BBC is a creamy drink that combines bananas with always pleasing Baileys liquor.

Some of the bartenders will swizzle some chocolate syrup around the inside of the glass before they fill it, which is sometimes referred to as a Chocolate BBC.
