    Thanks for all the info ladies.... it is really appreciated. i don't have anything new to report, as I am supposed to speak to Daniel tomorrow and know for sure whether I get moved or not--for a 11/21/08 wedding.

        Just spoke to sandra a little over an hour ago and we have been moved to Barcelo Maya Palace!!! I really have mixed feeling at this point.. We were only given the option of Dreams Cancun or Barcelo Maya Palace, and I refuse to get married in Cancun!!

                Re: Barcelo Maya & drinks

                from the website:

                All inclusive selections
                Margarita, Pina Colada, Caribbean Dream, Banana Republic, Isle of Coconut, Mosquito Coast, Daiquiris, Tequila Sunrise, Sex on the Beach. See the menus at the bars for what's in each drink. Also included, house brand spirits: Tequila, Mezcal, Rum, Brandy, Vodka, Gin, Whisky. House brand liqueurs: Orange, coffee, banana, peppermint, amaretto, cocoa. Aperitives: Vermouth, Bitters. Beer: Corona lager or dark. Soft drinks, fruit juices and coffees.

                Non-inclusive brands
                There is a variety of non-inclusive liquors available at the bars. Guests must sign for these drinks and they will be billed to your room. These drinks are also included to Club Premium guests and guests of Barcelo Palace.

                Non-inclusive brands menu [PDF] as of October 2007. (you can view this on other link).

                If your guests care about brand of drinks - they can consider upgrading to Club Premium for $35 per night and then it includes:
                BEVERAGES
                • Full Premium Drinks & Liquors at the "Club Premium Lounge".
                • PREMIUM Bar at the bars & Restaurants in the Resort

                Sounds like a pain to get the kind of drinks that Dreams has automatically - but the rest of the resort looks really nice. I'm sure whoever has switched to their is just happy to have their whole group together somewhere!!

                      I'm going to pout here because I don't understand why Dreams wouldn't be obligated to pay for the upgrade to "Club Premium Lounge". After all they did say (I'm quoting from an email I received directly from Kevin)

                      "Even though we are confident that this will be resolved as indicated, we want to assure you that we will, of course, protect your wedding, rates and guests at one of our Dreams or Secrets Resorts in Cancun/Riviera Maya or will protect you in another resort of equal or better quality should the need arise. In your specific case, we do not foresee that this will be a problem as we are, once again, confidant we will be open well before your December 20th wedding. "

                      Equal or greater quality includes premium drinks I would think since they are offered at Dreams resorts. I would push for that upgrade for everyone in the group. Just a thought.
