  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. A few days ago RC was running a BOGO 50% off deal on the deluxe drinks package for my cruise. The original price was $54/person/day and the BOGO price was $51/person/day. Well, I forgot to purchase it and the deal is no longer available. Currently they are running a "20% off on board price" deal for $56/person/day, so I'm not particularly happy with that. I'd like to call RC customer service to see if there is any way for me to get the BOGO price, but not sure how to approach the situation. I don't want to sound like an angry jerk, but I am upset. Not to mention they've already changed the cruise itinerary and we won't be stopping in a port I was looking forward to (completely understand they have every right to change the itinerary, but still...). I'm 194 days out from my cruise, so I imagine there is a possibility for other deals to run during that time, but I also don't want the prices to increase from hear on out. Anyways - has anyone ever done this before? Would love some advice.
  4. Hi there - I'm going on my first ever cruise in Feb. 2020 on the Brilliance of the Seas 😁 I want to get the Deluxe drinks package because I think it will ultimately save me money on my trip, but I have a question. The info for the drinks package lists the types of alcohol/brands that are covered by the package, but I've noticed there are some specialty cocktails on the bar menus that are made with alcohols/brands of alcohol that are not on that list. This may seem like a silly question and I have a feeling that I already know the answer, but are some of the drinks on the bar menus not covered by the deluxe pacakge? I just don't want any surprises at the end of my trip and want to know if I should ask the bartenders what is covered by the package before I order. Thanks 😀
  5. Hi, I am not asking about cost. I know a beer is between $6.50 and $7.50 plus gratuity. Is it a pint from a tap? Schooner? 330ml bottle? 500ml can? Uk pint? US pint? This is important to know when working out if a package is viable! Thanks in advance
  6. Question about happy hour at wonderland. Can we take the drinks to go and the 2 for 1 deal? Or does it have to be consumed in the restaurant itself?
  7. Hi guys! My friends and I are going on our first cruise and there’s still a few questions we were hoping you could help with: 1) Will we save money by buying the DBP? We plan on drinking a decent amount of cocktails and having a few coffees and juices as well throughout the day, and we think we might actually break even. But is it likely we will save ourselves money? 2) How does the gratuity work? We’re from NZ and tipping isn’t the usual. If we only buy the Beverages package and we order an alcoholic drink will the tip be included in the price or added on top? Have you found that with the tips can be a “hidden cost” on the cruise? 3)Do you have any extra advice for us? Thank you guys!
  8. I was on the “Harmony of the seas” last month.(April 21). And while I was there I got a drink from the Bionic Bar called, “The Lion.” Its a bright red alcoholic drink made with cranberry. And I can’t seem to find the recipe for it anywhere! Anyone have it for me?
  9. Cruising on Serenity of the Seas in April but haven't been on a cruise in years. I was wondering if a drink package is now a necessity or if there is still water,juice and coffee available for breakfast and water with dinner in the dining room?
  10. Does the spa on Grandeur have smoothies? I heard Allure had this when I sailed in April and we could have used the Refreshment package to get them. But I didn't think of that during that trip. So I'm wondering if this just exists on larger ships.
  11. Hi all - Does anyone know if freestyle drink machines have been added to Independence of the Seas? I think it is on the way back from Europe now after some upgrades?
  12. Very interesting conversation going on within the Grandeur of the Seas fan page .... Apparently some folks are being charged Sales Tax on drinks purchased while in the Chesapeake Bay (in Maryland and Virginia). And yet, I've never paid sales tax on either one of my past cruises on Grandeur. The only common denominator that I've been able to figure out is that those that pre-purchase a drink package won't be charged the tax since the act of purchasing is occurring in a different state, however, those that purchase their drinks a la carte style will be charged sales tax while in the Chesapeake Bay. Can anyone provide any insight into this? Is it true/false? Have you seen this? My wife and I always get the combo package (drink and voom) so apparently this doesn't apply to us (I guess this makes one more reason why a drink package makes sense). Mark
  13. On my previous Cruise on Navigator, I never spotted mimosas being offered at breakfast anywhere. Was I simply not looking hard enough?! Is this something that is generally available and if so how do I go about ordering one (or some!) On my upcoming cruise on Independence and will they be covered by the drinks package? 🍹🍸
  14. So glad to have found this forum as I was only ever on 1 cruise before, and that was The Disney Cruise over 13 years ago! We are going on the Symphony in May (Western Med) and I have several questions: 1) I thought internet was free in the room, but then I saw that there were packages to buy? 2) I thought that the only free drinks were water, lemonade, juice, coffee/tea, but in the picture they show cans of Coke and Sprite? We don't drink and the package seemed expensive for soda, so now I'm now sure what they provide? 3) We don't want to leave the ship every day (we only have 1 official day at sea); is this ok? Is everything available on the ship like restaurants, etc? Thanks in advance!!
  15. Hi y'all! My husband and I will be traveling to Nassau on an RCL cruise in March (my first cruise ever - so excited!) We have been to Nassau before for our honeymoon but never got a chance to visit the infamous Señor Frogs. I was just wondering how expensive the drinks are there? I can not find a menu listing food and drink prices except for on dated in 2012 so I'm not sure how accurate that is. Thanks!!! RCL - 3/12/18 - 4 night from Miami to Nassau, CoCoCay and Key West
  16. Just found this website and joined to get some advice on our upcoming trans-pacific cruise in April 2018, departing from Sydney and ending in Seattle. We are cruising on "Explorer of the Seas" and the cruise duration is 23 days!. We don't intend dining in any of the "user pays" restaurants. Will only be dining in the buffet restaurant. We are teetotalers, so aren't interested in any alcoholic drinks packages. TIPPING From the Royal Caribbean website: Stateroom attendant USD 5.00 a day per guest Dining Room Waiter USD 3.75 a day per guest Assistant Waiter USD 2.15 a day per guest Head Waiter USD 0.75 a day per guest Would our tips be USD 11..65 x 2 = USD 23.30 per day? We should therefore budget around USD 535.90 for tips. Are we expected to leave an additional tip each day for our cabin steward over and above that advised above? BEVERAGE PACKAGE (Classic Soda Package) From the Cruise Planner for our cruise: Classic Soda Package USD 9.95 a day per guest At USD 20.00 per day this would be USD 460.00 for the duration of the cruise. Is tipping then an additional 18% (USD 82.80) on top of that total? Could anyone advise what the individual cost per soda would be? We would consume between 3 and 4 sodas a day. Does Royal Caribbean offer any discount soda packages? Does Royal Caribbean allow passengers to BYO their own soda drinks? If so, what would be allowed to be brought on board which would only be consumed in our cabin. Is there any restriction on whether soda brought on board is in plastic bottles or in aluminium cans? LAUNDRY FACILITIES As we will be on board for 23 days, are there laundry facilities on the ship whereby you can do your own washing and drying? What would be the approximate cost per load be to wash and to dry. We anticipate taking between 4 and 5 days of clothing, each which suggests we would need to wash and dry at least 5 times during the cruise.. ANY THING ELSE TO CONSIDER Is there any other "surprises" to be aware off with regard to possible hidden costs? Does anyone have any suggestions as to how we might be able to minimize our on board expenses?
  17. I bought a Deluxe Drink Package for our Oasis Cruise and wondered if I could bring a large travel mug to fill at the bars, so I.... a) don't have to keep going up to the bar and wait in line.... b) keep the drink cold over time. Will the bartenders fill a big travel mug for me? Cheers!, D
  18. Hi all! My husband and I are thinking of going on our very first cruise in December on the 4 night Bahamas cruise on the Enchantment of the Seas. I was hoping to get some input from previous cruisers on a couple questions/concerns: - What all is included in the cost of the trip? (I have read different things saying that no drinks are included or that a few drinks are included like water and tea. Just wanted to get an official answer!) - Is the Enchantment ship a stable ship? I know that you can't account for rough seas from a storm, etc. but my husband does tend to get motion sick but I have been hearing that stabilizers are being used a lot more often on cruise ships to help cut down the rocking. Hoping Enchantment uses this as well! Thank you in advance everyone! :)
  19. Can anyone tell me what drinks package I have & what it includes please? My invoice says YGG8-SELECT BEV. Thank you
  20. Hi there I am a complete newbie to RC and I have booked a cruise - 9th April Allure, East Caribbean Itinerary, for myself partner and Mum and her partner for their 70th birthdays and I really want it to be amazing and feeling the pressure!!! Can you please help me with these q's? - what excursion is a must - what is the one thing we must do on the ship - what time can we board and then please do offer me any other info that will help me!!! or point me to other threads, I've read loads and got some great tips so far thanks Laura :-)
  21. I'm sailing on the Oasis for the first time. Does anyone know if RC has any type of complimentary drinks after so many points? When I've been on Carnival once you get 1500 points you get free drinks while you're in the Casino. Thanks, Jill
  22. Good evening, First cruise with Royal on the Oasis of the Seas.. Are we able to bring on any pop , water, or beer ? I have only been on Carnival Cruises so I don't know Royal's take on this.. Thank you, Jill
  23. Hey all! I'm taking my first cruise as an adult (I was 17 last time I went) with my husband this fall. I'm in debate about the drink packages. I don't drink soda at all, so I'm not really interested in paying for that. But I drink a ton of water, tap is fine - do I have to pay anything for this? Also, can one person buy a drink package without the other? My husband will probably want soda. I was planning to pay for the alcoholic drinks individually - can I get some ideas on how much it is for their tropical cocktails? Thanks in advance! RG
  24. Hello, We have the cruise on the Legend in two weeks. We have a difficulty choosing the best beverage package. My query is that we will be taking excursions so during the day we will be out of the ship (6 days excursions 3 days cruising + departure & Arrival. As me and my wife do not drink that large amount of alcohol, wand e were thinking of buying the basic package and then paying for some wine or cocktails during evening or cruising days. What free drinks are included (example during breakfast / dinner)? Whats included in Royal Replenish Package & Royal Refreshment Package? (example soft-drinks, bottled water, n/alcoholic cocktails etc..) I cannot find a detailed list! Can we buy the packages when we board the ship for example on day two? thanks for your help :)
  25. Hi everyone! Sailing out on the Independence in June and I am trying to find a list of beers included in the select package. Specifically, I'm trying to see if there are hard ciders (strongbow, Redds etc) included. Thanks!!!
