Cup given out for Beverage/Soda Package

Recommended Posts

I love showing off/using my cup post cruise to my friends and family, however, does anyone else feel they should seek out a better quality product?  I would love a "Top Dishwasher Safe" cup because hand washing is for the birds!  I have older ones that are in better shape then the ones I got three months ago!

I agree that in today's day and age, cups need to be dishwasher safe or I don't buy it. Unfortunately too many RC coffee mugs I've bought suffer from not holding up well to the dishwasher, and frankly, I'm not spending time hand washing them.

Not just the soda cups, but even the specialized drink cups you can get at some bars really are low quality. I have had around a dozen of them and only one remains to this day. Amazing enough, the one that survived was from my Honeymoon cruise back in 2012, almost 7 years ago, even the lights on the cup still work!

Sadly the few cents they are saving on these cheaper made cups is a sign of the times.  All the pennies saved on making merchandise cheaper is bigger profit for whomever and not just R.C..  Our older cruise items are still looking really good.  We never use the dishwasher for insulated mugs,cups,etc.   They are hand washed and they still fog up over time.

speednoogles thanks for posting the link, I totally forgot.  I'm a goof

Ha, not a problem, it's usually me who forgets to post links! I was just catching up on the forum/website and happened to have just read it.

On the RCBlog Dining page on FB someone said this is a change made by the vending machine suppliers and not really Royal.  Either way, I have no idea what to do with the one I have from Feb, and collecting 2-3 a year is just going to be a pain, so I really don't care which kind I throw away.

Yea, I'll be honest it looks a good bit cheaper than the last ones.

Looking the the images the plastic looks thinner. Yea not a fan, certainly no WOW to that change, even it if isn't RC making the change they are certainly a big enough client to push back on the vendor

I'm mixed opinion about these new cups. One one hand they do seem easier to haul around with the carry handle. One benefit is it looks like the handle is removable. Also like the idea of having a straw.

Now the flip side they do seem a bit cheap looking. Then again the current cups aren't all that either. Think maybe if the lid wasn't a dome shape it might be more appealing. Artwork on the outside is just a rehash of the current artwork, just not shiny.

I also think a few years back they had a non-insulated cup that did seem similar. Biggest complaint was the lid was a snap on and difficult to remove and snap back on.

Really for me it comes down to one question. How easy can the "chip" be removed?

A perfect mug for your perfect day at  your perfect place.  The new mugs are truly hideous.  A  perfect way to ruin a perfect cruise.  Cheaper than past mugs allows for more  of the  C.E.O. bonus check.

We always leave ours in the room when we leave the ship.  They are such a low quality they are not worth taking home.

Absolutely. Allows you room in your  luggage for any purchases you might have made.
