Default Drink Voucher Question

I have a question for those who have recently cruised on Divina and pre-ordered the drink voucher package. When an where do you receive the vouchers?

Thanks.

Default drink vouchers

I have not sailed on MSC, but I asked this question to MSC US in a phone call, and they told me you can pick the vouchers up at customer service as soon as you enter ship!

We sailed Divina over Christmas. Were told to pick up vouchers at reception desk, where, after waiting in line we were told to go to the MDR. Well, MDR staff sent us to the Casino Bar, where we waited for thirty minutes and were givin only our beer vouchers, and were told our wine package vouchers were in the MDR, where our waiter finally found them at dinner. OH WELL...the vouchers are still a great bargain and I would get them again.

Thanks Russian Bear and neptuno for your response.

Since there is conflicting information on when the Allegrissimo Escape vouchers are delivered I also called MSC USA today and I received a different response from them. I was told the vouchers would be received at the pier when we check-in!

I would listen to those who've sailed recently on the Divina, my info was just what MSC told me, and they could be wrong!

Can the vouchers be used to get a glass of wine at a bar and take it to your room, or are they only good in dining room?

ALLEGRISSIMO ESCAPE - $72

From their website...
Carnet of 15 vouchers entitling you on whole range of drinks included in Allegrissimo Classic all inclusive package. If you want to explore our Drink List and enjoy a glass of wine, a cocktail, a glass of draft beer, your favorite liquor, a non-alcoholic drink or even a cone of our home-made ice cream, the ALLEGRISSIMO ESCAPE is a perfect option for you! The vouchers can be used in all bars and restaurants during entire cruise.

In another thread MSC_USA states that this has been withdrawn for the Carribbean cruise dates. Has anyone successfully booked and received the Allegrissimo Escape carnets on a Divina cruise out of Miami?

$440 for the lower tier Allegrissimo Classic is probably reasonable, but it doesn't include the beers my husband and I drink, and if I do a cost breakdown at 7.5 a drink plus gratuity (so 8.85 each with 18%), that's 50 drinks or gelatos.

I don't see two adults who drink 1 or 2 drinks a couple of nights a week downing that much booze in 5 days (or consuming that much frozen confection). The Escape vouchers and the unlimited soda package make much more sense for us.

I was thinking 3 Escape carnets between two adults is $220, 45 drinks, and we probably wouldn't completely use the third voucher book-it'd be more of an insurance measure. MSC would still make money.

Would love to know if the Escape really is available, or it's a case of MSC not using simple skip logic on their website to remove that from the drink options on the Divina dates.

Here's what was on the other thread

The Allegrissimo Classic includes unlimited consumption of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, including a selection of wine by the glass, draft beer, soft drinks, mineral water, hot drinks, and a wide selection of drinks and cocktails from the bar list, as well as take away ice-cream. The package must be booked by all guests occupying the same cabin, belonging to the same reservation number, and all gusts booked under different reservation numbers but traveling together or as part of a group.

Hope this helps!

Is there a list anywhere on what cocktails/drinks are available with these vouchers? My hubby likes the occasional martini, I like to try tropical drinks and we both like a Bloody Mary on a sea day morning. Would these be covered?

The 15 voucher package is pre- cruise ordered only. Once on board it is reduced to 12 vouchers, and does not include the tips.

I am sailing on the Divina March 8. After calling MSC and not having any luck, I took the advice of Camofwilliamsburg and asked my TA to book the Allegrissimo Escape Carnets for me. I just got confirmation from him yesterday that he WAS able to book them for me. Hope this helps you.

Exclamation

I am glad that you were able to do that. Also, if not paid but put onto your account it goes towards points in the MSC Club, in addition to cruise nights you get points for dollars spent. Tips not included in that. Enjoy your cruise.

Camo, so you can order it but wait to pay until on the ship? Therefore getting the points?
