Which class of ship was this? Would love to know how the coffee and other premium beverages are that  would be included in the deluxe package on the newest Oasis class ships. Thanks, 

Serenade, Radiance class. We have successfully used our drink package at Cafe Latitudes for specialty coffee, milkshakes, and spirited coffee.

Did you have to buy food to get the milkshakes “free” ?

Raye, don't quote me on this but I believe I read that if you sit in a booth you have to order something, my wife and I usually order FF and onion rings.

This is the part I'm not positive of, if you sit at the bar you do not have to order any food to get the milkshake. This is for the diamond and diamond + perk, not even remotely sure on any of the beverage packages.

On anthem now and we just asked at Johnny Rockets and they said free with deluxe or refreshment but of course not soda.   So we got a couple.  Pretty good.  

My complaint is everything breaking on ship.  Bionic bar been down most of week.  They got one working but when it shakes the drink it throws liquid everywhere and people get wet with alcohol.   I asked and they said they have to bring in mechanic.  

Also I am used to room attendants learning your name and making towel animals all the time.   We have one animal and one other night he repaired the one from a few nights ago.  So I guess you can say 1.5 towel animals.   We saw him once or twice and only when we were in room when he came to clean.

Not sure if I wrote about this in another thread or I did it here and it didn’t go through.  Sorry if this is a duplicate. 

We just returned from NAV for a Thanksgiving Cruise.  We both had the deluxe drinks pkg. When we went to JR to get our “complimentary” milkshakes they told us (after we had already ordered them, to go) that there would be a $5.95 ea charge.  I told them “forget it” and the manager relented and gave them to us with no charge but he did reiterate that in order to get you complimentary milkshake, you must pay the cover charge.  

I guess the complimentary milkshake policy varies from ship to ship.

Or they just weren't aware of the new option.

I wonder what would have happened if they rang up the milk shake and the charged it to your card, if it just would have changed the bill amount to $0. Assuming the prices for the cash registers are centrally updated on land for all ships and then just uploaded to them.

They actually DID charge my seapass card for the milkshakes on NAV.  The manager reversed the charges and we ended up getting our milkshakes but if I had not been there to argue about it we would have been charged.  We verified, when we got back to the cabin, that the charges had been correctly reversed.

I am going on Freedom in a few months with the refreshment package. I am going in assuming I can get a free shake at the Johnny Rockets bar without a cover charge. 

Anyone know if this is still the current policy?? I'm curious if things have changed as most of these responses are from 2018. Thanks!

Last year, on our NAV Thanksgiving cruise, they told us that we could not get the milkshake without paying the cover charge.  We pushed back and got the fee waived but officially, at least as of last November, the DBP on NAV did not include the milkshake without paying the cover charge.

I'm confused by this because we've got folks confirming that the milkshakes are included with the deluxe package, but the brochure on RCCL's site doesn't even mention them.

It’s truly ship-dependent.  I recall some months ago Matt had a blog post that confirmed that the JR milkshakes had been officially added to the drinks covered by the DBP but I’m not sure it was ever uniformly implemented.  There’s really no easy answer to this one. You will have to confirm the procedure ship-by-ship.  I know that on NAV last Nov it was NOT included.

Thank you, and too bad they don't make decisions like this universal.

Second week on Harmony right now and happy to report that milkshakes are free at Johnny Rockets both with the Deluxe Drinks as well as the refreshment package. They swipe the card and a 100% discount is applied to the price. 

whoopwhoop!  i don't enjoy desserts but I do enjoy a milkshake once in a while!  will be enjoying at least 1 in November on Harmony!  YAY!!!
