When we were on the Freedom we got our Corona's in the platic bottles shown below instead of the little cups. Do all ships use these now? Or are they just starting to get used?

Thanks in advance, more curious than anything. :D

This pic is from a year ago in January, so I think they've been around for awhile. I think it's just Coronas purchased at Lido bars, because of the bottle restrictions perhaps. They are a bit funny looking though...

Those bottles have become common at the pool bars and on the private islands.

I only got Corona in those plastic cups when on the lido deck. Because of that, I never ordered more than one at a time. At the bars not on the lido deck, I could get it in the glass bottle, and I would order a bucket of those.

Yeah we had been on 4 ships this year and Dec was the first time we had seen them used. So I had to scratch the curious itch. :D

It would be great if Corona would also use aluminum bottles. It would be perfect for cruising.

$4.95 + 15% gratuity. You can save 50 cents per beer, or $2.00 total if you buy a bucket (4 beers). Just remember how they're served on Lido, open in these plastic things, so be ready to drink up.

So that was what that strange bottle on the Miracle was last week.

Ordered a Corona in one of the lounges last week and got it in a glass.

We had the "strange" glass when ordering at the bar in the Casino. Not sure I liked it too much. Beer was good, but rim felt a little sharp. :rolleyes:

I was not a huge fan, they are ok. I just felt like you had to watch extra careful unless you wanted it to turn into a mini beer bong. The rim just made it a tad hard to drink .

Two weeks ago on the Conquest I paid $6.61 for Miller Lite 16 oz. and that included gratutity...Dennis

:confused: Not sure why you quoted me, but I was responding to the question about the cost of Corona.

Not on all lines. I was on Celebrity in August and I got my Corona is a glass bottle.

That's great. We were talking about Carnival ships, and specifically the Lido deck. ;)

I don't understand why Carnival does not order them in the cans.......

It is not as fun trying to jam a wedge of lime in to a can. :D

LOL.. and then people would cut their fingers, and then they would sue and demand compensation. :D

Besides, I don't know what's more fun than drinking out of those funky plastic things; half the time that high dollar beer ends up all down the front of me... it's a bit of a challenge. :o

We were on a Disney cruise and they had them too! I really like them. Brought a few home to use around the pool!

We were on the Freedom in October 2012 and had a corona on Lido, and it was brought to me in a plastic cup.
