  1. I was on this (via RCI) recently and the tour was mostly exhibiting the history of Bacardi that was pretty interesting. In comparison to the whiskey distillery tour I made in Scotland last year, this tour didn't go inside the rum distillery production premises. At least in whiskey business that's the most interesting part of the whole show, so I would have liked to seen that. Taking pictures was allowed. Tour included a welcome drink in a complimentary Bacardi drink glass and a drink from their bar's drink list after the tour. Our coach driver was announcing things about San Juan along the way, which was nice. After the tour we had plenty of time to shop and have lunch in the old San Juan. So most probably there's something better to do in San Juan but if one's into BacardiπŸ¦‡, one could take the tour into consideration. P.S their rum shop was ok and getting my purchased rum bottle engraved for 5$ was cool 😁
  2. Well, I have been Wonderlanded now! It was for us pretty much as @monorailmedic stated: "Neat experience, but it didn't blow me away. Would recommend doing once." Here's what we got: Fire Emanating wonderful warmth Buffalo Chicken Eggs Smoke, blue cheese & hot sauce Sun Radiant vegetables playfully reinvented Baby Vegetables in the Garden Soil & pebbles <-- as in "normal" version the "soil" was coloured with squid ink, we had a nice green avocado grass as a base πŸ™‚ Reconstructed caprese Liquid olive, ricotta powder, basil Tomato water Pepper spherification, bread foam Ice Chilled to exhilarate the palate Oceanic Citrus Spicy tuna & floral yuzu granite <--This was replaced with a fresh lime sorbet. Crispy Crab Cones Cilantro, avocado mousse & ohba leaf <-- cones were filled with peppers etc., so no crab here. For mains we had a mushroom risotto with steamed vegetables - which wasn't overwhelmingly great, but was a nice and light meal after all that Sorrento's pizza πŸ˜‰ Dreams Elaborate dreamscape of desserts. The World Peanut butter ganache, Valrhona chocolate mousse, salted caramel ice cream The waitress explained very well the ingredients the chef replaced the meats, fish and seafood from the original setting - this is something that was done impressively well. Chef didn't want us to miss any of the elements and clearly he made an effort to use vegetarian ingredients that also tasted good on top of looking neat. This was our chosen speciality restaurant for the cruise, and we were both very happy with the experience. The restaurant itself was nicely furnished and it's dark, tranquil atmosphere complimented the courses well. All in all the food wasn't something that a vegetarian would eat on daily basis, but this wasn't even the expectation nor the purpose of the menu. It was all for the experience and that Wonderland certainly delivered.
  3. We were considering also, and opted for Deluxe Package as in addition to alcoholic and non-alcoholic cocktails it includes the premium coffees and freshly squeezed juices. I'm having easily three cappuccinos and 2-3 juices a day, so that would be already a 30$ bill right there. And not even starting here on cocktails and beers πŸ‘Ό
  4. Thanks guys, this was excellent information and just what I was seeking for - going for it now definitely πŸ‘ Very much enjoyed the podcast also, thank you.
  5. RCI page on Wonderland says that vegetarian options are available, but I also read a post back from 2016 where the waiter suggested a vegetarian couple to find another dining place. I'd much appreciate any experiences of people who have actually eaten the vegetarian (no fish or meat) menu in Wonderland. Basically, is it worth the 50$? 🐰πŸ₯• We are going on Harmony Jan 19.
