Overview

A nautical-themed bar that looks like an old ship.


The Schooner is a nautical-themed bar that is covered in hanging ropes, pictures of schooners, and models of tiny boats inside bottles. Light beige leather chairs, like the ones you might find on the driver's side of a schooner, are arranged around glass tables. The middle of the room features a piano, and the end of the bar looks like the bow of a ship. Already being on a cruise ship, you'd think there would be no need for another ship feel, however the Schooner is a very pleasant bar with some fun activities.

Drinks

At the Schooner you can get frozen or mixed drinks, beers and liquor—and soft drinks as well. The beer and wine selection is limited, but there are plenty of choices for mixed cocktails. The menu here is the same as what you'd find at Olive & Twist.

Activities

In the evening, the Schooner bar offers live piano music. Earlier in the day the bar hosts trivia and the occasional game of bridge.
