  1. What are the rules regarding the fridge in the Coco Beach Club cabanas if not all people have a drinks package? We have booked one for an upcoming cruise and while we have a drinks package we have some friends on the same cruise who don't have a drinks package who will join us in the cabana. Do the two out of 7 people without a package just get lucky or will the fridge be empty and we always have to order drinks and then they keep a record from whom the drinks are?
  2. So I added the unlimited alcoholic drink package and a "Chops + 1" dining package on the royal caribbean website and left them in my shopping cart. When I added them to my cart, they had a discounted price. I actually didn't end up purchasing them and they are still in my cart at the "discounted" price, but the alcoholic package is more expensive right now. Does anybody know if I continue to check out if it will go to the discounted price when I added it to my cart or the "current" price advertised on the site? This may be a nice hack to at least add the items to your shopping cart to do like a soft "lock" on the price if you can't afford to pay right at that moment. Does anybody have any experience with this?
  3. Hey everyone, So I have been seeing several post on FB Allure OTS pages about the drink package tumbler cups being out of stock and guest were instead given plain solid color non-insulated cups with bendy straws. The post that I saw specifically mentioned the Allure so I'm curious as to whether anyone else is seeing this on any other ships. Not to say that it's the end of the world, but I would much rather have an insulated tumbler for several reasons. This August 14th will be our first time on RCCL, sailing on the gorgeous looking Allure, so im crossing fingers they're back.
  4. We usually get the booze package but in our last 6 cruise-less years we've had two children who will be joining us for our next cruise on the Liberty of the Seas. We plan on getting one soda package and one medium package. I really want to make sure we get full use out of that package, so are there any places I'm missing out on? It can get mocktails at the bars, of course. Coffee at the cafe promenade. Fresh oj in the windjammer. What else? I heard shakes at Johnny Rockets without staying to eat. The package is getting full use, I don't leave money on the table so since I'm not going to be drinking 20+ beers, wines, and cocktails I want to explore all my options and not just drink fountain soda all day.
  5. This summer [July 22 - 29] I am taking my 1st ever cruise on Oasis of the Seas with my family! I am looking for information for first timers but don’t know where to look just yet. I just became an “insider” if that helps find the information I need for planning and learning about this cruise line. I’ve sailed with Disney 6 times so we are not new to cruising, just new to all the different offerings and options with Royal. I do have a travel agent but I really want to learn about this on my own and save the unusual questions for her. Can someone point me in the right direction? Also a big fan of the podcast, including the old days from WDW Today - thanks for everything over all the years Matt! Please help - thank you in advance!
  6. Hey! The first time we cruised out of Galveston I completely forgot that they don't offer a full bar service while still in Texan waters. We'll be leaving out of Galveston again soon and I want to be more prepared! What's your favorite drink to get while still in Texan waters? I prefer something sweet and typically get the Pretty 'n Pink specialty drink while on the ship. Ideas?
  7. I cancelled the drink packages I purchased a couple weeks ago and have yet to see it come back to my credit card. Is this similar to what everyone else is experiencing at this time? I did receive a confirmation email that it was cancelled. Thanks!
  8. If I get the drink package and order a bottle of wine at dinner, could I share it with my table? Or can I get a bottle of wine at the bar and take it to dinner? Thank You. Jane
  9. Hi, does anyone know if I can get a chocolate Martini with my drink package, or will it be extra. If not, does anyone know what chocolaty drink I could get with my drink package?
  10. Hi everyone, Is this a decent price for the deluxe beverage package? I know that I can cancel and rebuy if the price drops, but I don't feel any need to rush and purchase unless the initial price is pretty decent.
  11. My wife and I just booked our cruise for December 2020 and we could not be more excited!! While I was looking over the cruise planner I saw the price of the "Refreshment Package" for drinks. I am not sure if I can justify paying the price they have set for that specific drink package... I am wondering if anyone on here knows the price Royal charges for their mocktails, fresh squeezed juices, and bottled water.
  12. Hi everyone! First time cruiser here (unless you count a cruise when I was 14 yrs old having everything booked by family). Bf and I are going on Oasis in May 2020 to port Canaveral, coco cay and Nassau. I have a few questions that I’m hoping can be answered. Thanks in advance! a. How are the clubs on royal Caribbean ships? (Or oasis specifically) Do they get pretty packed? How late are they open and is the music good? I have nyc clubs to compare it to in my mind b. At the clubs if we wanted tequila shots with the unlimited drinking package, how often could we get them or is there a specific time period we’d have to wait between each shot? c. Why is it impossible to find a drink menu for oasis anywhere? I want to make sure drinks I would want are included in the unlimited package. For example how much is a frozen pina colada? (A drink I see myself having a lot of) margarita? mojito? d. How does it work if we do not want to pay gratuity in advance? Our travel agent says on the last night of the trip they will put tip envelopes for cash in our room, is that how it actually works or is there another way to self pay gratuity? e. How does making my time dining reservations go? As well as theater and aquatheater reservations? f. For people who have been to the water park at coco cay and Atlantis, which is better? g. Any first time cruiser advice that you think is absolutely necessary? h. How are speciality restaurants on oasis? Interested in the bbq place and playmakers bar thank you all!!
  13. Hey everyone! I'm going on my first cruise in February and cannot wait! I am part of a large (wedding) group and will be rooming with a friend of mine. Both he and I have purchased the deluxe drink package. I have small concerns over the possibility of him getting his revoked due to violating their no sharing policy. He is a bit of a wildcard when he drinks, and although he never does anything too over-the-top, buying tons of rounds for new friends at the pool (or wherever) may be up his alley. I am afraid that he may break the no sharing policy that RC states will result in revocation of a drink pass. My question is if his drink pass gets revoked, will mine also be at risk of revocation? I am a very responsible drinker, and I don't want to be penalized for his actions. I know that RC generally requires both or none of each stateroom's inhabitants have deluxe drink passes. Thanks for reading!
  14. I am considering purchasing the Deluxe drink package on my upcoming cruise on Allure of the Seas. I know I'll enjoy some alcoholic drinks but I am also a coffee fanatic and enjoy my espresso based drinks so this package may be perfect for me. I know Starbucks is not included in the premium coffee but what is included? And where is that premium coffee found on the ship? I apologize if this question has been asked! This is my first cruise! Thank you for all your help!
  15. If i wanted to purchase the drinks package with voom for my wife does that mean i must purchase it as well or can i just purchase drinks package by itself? If i can do this, can i do it on planner or would i have to call RC to get this done? TYI Ray
  16. Sailing on Harmony OTS for the Sept. 22nd sailing in 31 days. Wanted to see about doing a 'Bar Crawl' with my group and anyone else that we happen to meet up with on the ship. But, like the old saying goes....'you cant say you've been drinking all day, unless you start in the morning'. So, with that.... where is the earliest place to get a drink on the ship? It appears that most of the 'bars' open around 1030 AM. But... if you're an early riser... can you get a bloody Mary, mimosa, or an 'Irish breakfast' from somewhere before that? Any thoughts on this or advice about getting a bar crawl organized is greatly appreciated. ~Cheers
  17. I'm a fairly simple drinker and tend to stick with things I already know i.e. beers, long islands, bourbon, gin, etc. (could not for the life of me remember all those crazy mixed drink names) Since I am purchasing the deluxe drink package it gives me a rare opportunity to step out of my comfort zone and start experiment with all those crazy drinks with crazy names. (why not!? since im on vacation!) *This will be on the 7 day symphony of the seas western caribbean jan, 2020* So my question is: Does anyone have a list of official drink names and the ingredients that they could send me? (I plan on printing or copy pasting the list to take with me to the cruise lol)
  18. I'll be taking my very first cruise ever on Symphony of the Seas 7 days on Jan, 2020. I'm still getting use to all guides and tips on youtube/google. I've also been very vigilant on the cruise planner feature on royal caribbean website. My 2 questions below: What is the cheapest deluxe drink package you have ever purchased on specifically symphony of the seas? (I'm trying to grab an average so I know when to pull the trigger and buy) When is the best time to buy the deluxe drink package? I know we'll be going over labor day, thanksgiving, christmas, and new years. So i'm hoping one of those holidays will have a great sale for the DDP. (the only problem is I don't know the lowest and highest DDP has been sold for) Thank you all in advance for answering my questions!
  19. I have two cruises the summer of 2020 (one on Harmony and one on Oasis) and just noticed a pretty significant price increase on the Deluxe Beverage Package. A couple weeks ago it had 20% off with the price of $56 and now it is 20% off with a price of $65 ?. Price increases are always expected but wow! Are other people seeing an increase in their package prices? #StillLoyalToRoyal #StillGoingToPurchaseLOL
  20. Hi everyone! Just wondering what the souvenir cups given with beverage packages are like on symphony of the seas. I've seen some cool looking ones with a chip and also some cheap plastic looking ones. Thanks!
  21. Is sparkling water or flavored sparkling water (like La Croix or Perrier) available? We will be on MOS in September and have purchased the drink package. I have only seen a general list of the mixed drinks and pop available. Thanks!
  22. This is interesting. I've been watching the Deluxe Beverage Package pricing for my upcoming Anthem sailing for a while now. Before today, it's always been $56/night when no sale is in place (stock 20% off $70 on-board price), and $52/night when theres a BOGO50 (25% off $70 on-board price). Never changed in months of watching it. Today, the price is $52/night with no sale in effect. Verified I haven't received an email from Royal, and there are no banners in place. So the on-board price just got dropped to $65 -- 80% of 65 is 52. I'll be very curious to what this weekend's expected Memorial Day sale shows: A BOGO50 with the same $52 price? (meaning Royal IT just jumped the gun and enabled the sale price a few days early) A BOGO50 at $49/night? (25% off $65) The long-sought 30% off sale?!? At today's on-board price that would be $45.50/night (which as we've seen can be listed at either $45 or $46, depending on how they choose to round it) At the prior-to-today $70/night on-board pricing, it would be exactly $49 If they do 30% off at either price level, I'll grab that. $45 or $46/night is just at the level where it's not hard at all for me to break even without drink fatigue setting in. $49/night would just mean a couple of extra bottles of water each day to cover the small gap, and lord knows that the hydration around the cocktails and wine would be good for me! ?
  23. I am sailing Freedom in August and purchased the DBP for my boyfriend and I for $44pp/pd. I am a HEAVY water drinker as well as a fairly heavy drinker when it comes to vacation. On a regular day I drink around 96 ounces of water which only goes up when in the sun and drinking cocktails all day! I can easily drink 5-6 cocktails a day to make my break-even price but will be needing upwards of 120 ounces of water a day to try and battle my dehydration. How does getting water work while on board? I have heard to ask the bartender for a bottle with each cocktail but how many will they conceivably let me have per day and do they offer any size of bottle larger than a lil 12 oz'er? I will be bringing my Hydroflask of course, but I hate to think of all the waste of those plastic bottles since I could be drinking 10 of them a day. I am not a bottled water snob by any means (San Diego county tap water tastes great to me!) so how do people who haven't purchased a drink package get water? Are there filling stations for bottles like you find in an airport? I LOVE THOSE. SOS! As a strictly water and liquor drinker I need to know the other half of my beverage choices is also easily obtainable. Thanks for any thoughts! ?
  24. Hi! A few friends and I just booked the 7 night Southern Caribbean cruise out of San Juan on 3/17/2019. I am wondering if anyone knows when RCCL will have a promo going on for the drink package? Apparently the price is increasing in 2019 and I don't think I am going to drink $63-$74 per day in alcohol lol. I figured I won't get one or I will wait for a promo. Thank you in advance!
