    It’s a bit of fun. We tried something similar on Symphony a couple of years ago and it was ok for one drink. We never went back to it. You can’t beat a bit of interaction with a bar tender 🍹
    Exactly, it was quite fun to watch for a bit, but not something you would go back to time and again. Unless of course there were massive queues everywhere else!! ...................................Carol

        Speaking of masks, Annie, I read yesterday that the UK is now recommending wearing
        TWO masks, a surgical one and a cotton one over it. Conversely the Spanish
        government has banned the sale of cotton masks. (And masks are mandatory here at
        all times - even sitting - when you are outside your own home, unless physicallyl eating or
        taking a sip of a drink.) Think Germany has banned cotton masks also, don't know for sure.

        HazMat suits, anyone?

          Not the UK but USA's CDC recommend double masking. Good luck with that - most Americans it is reported are reluctant to wear a mask.

            They have Robot "Arms" that serve drinks on some RCI ships. The sceptical amused me for two minutes.

            I saw engineers regularly having to tweak the programme.

            I bet the cost of buying a Robot and maintaining it, is a LOT MORE than paying a third world crew member!

              My comment was very much tongue in cheek. I probably should have added a smiley

                We were talking to sister in law in Germany this morning and she confirmed that cotton masks are banned there.

                  How would a robot know how how I like my pina colada?

                    If this gimmick cannot tell you the best bar in the next port, or where to catch the bus to the next resort there is no point in entertaining it, and there is no point in talking to a lump of tin, Oh I forgot I talk to my car, but that's different :-D
