Review: Promenade Lounge On The Disney Magic

   You knew drinking was a big part of cruising…right?  Going into our first Disney Cruise, I did have that assumption.  However, I didn't realize HOW EASILY ACCESSIBLE drinks were on the ship! Besides the many bars/lounges/counters in which you can purchase your libations there are also handy cocktail waiters roaming the boat.  Their sole job is to entice you with delicious drinks.  This is my kind of vacation.
   One of the more out of the way bars on the ship is the Promenade Lounge. 


    This space, located on Deck three of both The Magic and The Wonder is very understated.  Because of the open wall layout, which acts as a hallway between the atrium and Carioca's , its pretty hard to call this space "cozy."  But the chairs are super comfortable…and check out the view. Sigh.

 View from the Promenade Lounge…I want to be here every day. 

    Because it is a relatively large space on the ship, and because it isn't included in the adults only After Hours space, the Promenade Lounge is used during the day for various activities.  These little meet ups are never imposing, and usually off the the side and away from the bar.  While I was enjoying my cocktail there was an activity going on as well, and didn't really take away from my experience at all.
   As far as people actually DRINKING at the bar, there are very few.  I imagine this space acts as a great place to have a pre-diner drink, considering its proximity to all three rotational restaurants.

Nice bar, but not much to speak of...

    Given my very limited time aboard The Magic you might wonder why I would even bother having a drink here considering the other fabulous options.  Well…first of all, I write a Disney Blog, and second, THIS PLACE ACTUALLY HAS UNIQUE DRINK OPTIONS.
   You might think that the Disney Cruise Line and Disney Parks are completely separate entities…but they do share a lot in common.  For instance, the cocktails on The Magic's menus are pretty consistent with those found at Disney World.  However, the Promenade Lounge did offer quite a few unique and interesting cocktails.


    I decided to try the Melon Vine which is described as Bacardi Melon Rum, Sauvignon blanc, freshly squeezed lemon juice, topped with pineapple juice. What is this?!?  A combo of rum and white wine?  This is a truly bizarre cocktail, and I knew I had to get one.
    The drink is very pretty, and served in a tall glass.  The bright green is super appropriate for a cruise to the Bahamas, thats for sure.  Though it says "topped with pineapple juice" its actually the prominent flavor in the drink.  Don't get me wrong, both the melon and wine are there as well, but much more subtle than the pineapple.
     This cocktail is very refreshing, albeit way too sweet.  I would have liked a little more lemon flavor (I tasted none…) and instead of topping it with pineapple maybe top it with soda water.  That sounds like a winning combination if you ask me.


   So, who knew a mix of melon rum and white wine could work (relatively) well together?  Sure, Promenade Lounge wasn't the greatest…and the drink could be improved upon…but the atmosphere is certainly conducive to relaxing.  And if thats not the point of a cruise, what is?  My only regret is not trying more of the unique options at this spot…I guess there's always next time. :)

   Have you ever had a drink at the Promenade Lounge? Did you get a unique cocktail?  Tell us about it over on Twitter or on Facebook!
