I had vouchers on a recent cruise. At the time of purchasing them, the voucher numbers were noted and assigned to my cruisecard. They were very particular about checking the numbers and told me that it ensures that if someone steals/finds them they can't use them. It was on a South African cruise where they don't offer all-inclusive packages.

I am traveling with kids, so is it possible to get (4) $2 gelatos using (1) $8 voucher, or do I have to use 4 separate vouchers?

It was stated in the You Tube video that is mentioned earlier in the thread that it's one voucher per gelato and since the gelato is only 2.00, you're essentially paying 5.00 for a 2.00 item.

I can infer that the voucher is worth one item up to 8.00, not multiple items combined up to 8.00. Just spend the eight bucks on the 4 gelatos for your kids and be done with it.

Latinhunny33 this is the best option even if you both drink. Don't forget you can buy another package when on the ship. It just costs you more because of the gratuities.

April 1st you say? What a coincidence! We're on the same ship. If you need help with all those coupons, feel free to slide some under my door!

I was asking about drinks packages on another thread and wouldn't mind something like this.
No it's available on European itineraries too. But not available online. You have to call to order it.

The Fantastica experience includes 12 vouchers per person. Our family is comprised of 2 adults and 2 kids. Does anybody know if the kids vouchers can be used for adult beverages? Not that my kid is a big drinker, but, if so, I would rather use the vouchers for the more costly alcoholic drinks and pay out of pocket for sodas and juices!

Think I answered my own question. Since this program doesn't start until April 1st, nobody could really know the answer. I'm sure they'll be color coded or something though.

Just to repeat, you know that the promotion is only valid for US travelers (or if it was specifically mentioned as part of your package when you bought)?

Edit - Sorry, I just saw from your profile that you are in the states.

My US bases cruise agent says
''You will be receiving the 12 drink vouchers. Our agency is approved by MSC to provide the Fantastica benefits, which include the 12 drink vouchers to all guests regardless of their citizenship''

As I understand it, your kids will get the non alcoholic vouchers for bar soft drinks.
I'm also pretty sure this offer is not limited to Americans, but just to US sailings, ie Divina from Miami, it's included in my booking and I'm Canadian.

It's one voucher per item, don't waste them on a gelato, don't even waste a coffee cuddle voucher on a gelato, use your on board credit.

I realize this is an old post but I just came upon it… We traveled on Divina in July and had Fantastica! We had 4 teens with us they all had non-alcoholic vouchers which basically would cover the soda but if they also wanted a nonalcoholic cocktail or coffee or gelato it was worth it - we bought them a couple extra books of vouchers and that was not worth it since they didn't drink much (but I guess we will try to use them on a future cruise!)! Here's a sample
