Default Anyone know when Coke Freestyle machines will arrive on Allure?

Does anyone know when the Freesyle machines will arrive on the Allure? We are traveling on the March 25 sailing, and I had to open my big mouth to my daughter that the ship may have those pop machines.

The Freestyle machines will not be on Allure when you sail in March. It should be on the Allure by the end of the year but not by the time that you cruise.

Curious as to what you are basing this on? I read on an RCI q&a recently that they said that the machines would arrive on selected ships in 2012. Neither the ships nor the dates were elaborated on.

I hope the are on Allure this year..I sail in Sept and will definitely get the soda package if they have this as I'm a big fan of coke zero and fanta zero

The machine allows you to mix coke and other coke owned soft drinks with a variety of flavors. There are basically an unlimited number of combinations. There is one at a small local restaurant and there are so many choices, that the lines for a soda become unmanageable. The user has to scroll through all the beverages choices and then select flavors.

Are we sure these aren't on Allure yet? Saw a photo from Twitter from last year implying they are.

I found this thread about it:
http://cruiseforums.cruisecritic.com....php?t=1315679

First post says they are in Sorrento's, but later say it was a test.

Personally, I don't like them. Our Five Guys here have them, and last time I got a normal Sprite, it came out with a hint of cherry. Not a fan.

I saw these on a show on CNBC about Coke. Its a machine where on the touch screen yo say what type of coke product you want. It has 30 different flavors 106 different combos you can chose.
I'd love to use one of these machines.

More on it here http://www.coca-colafreestyle.com/

Our local Fuddruckers has one and the result is very long lines for drinks! Unless they have 100 of these machines it's going to be disastrous on a huge ship. First you have to press the lever for ice. Then you choose get a screen to choose what beverage you want. Then it takes you to a different screen where you can choose what flavor you want added to your drink.

We were on one of the pre-inaugural sailings of the Allure when they were testing the freestyle machines - and we loved it. I made some very interesting concoctions. Can't wait until the come out on to the fleet.

'Our' Schlotsky's here in Austin has two of these gizmos. But managing the lines for these on a cruise ship could be problematic, don't you think?

Never heard of them before but it does sound very cool. Not willing to stand in a long line to try it though. I think the lines on the ship would be bad very bad.
