Default Which ships have the Freestyle Soda Machines

We are sailing on the Jewel OTS in three weeks and are wondering if she has the Freestyle Soda Machines?

I really don't think any of them do.. And if they do, I am not sure how that would work with the whole soda package/cans deal since you need to purchase drinks on board. Interested to hear if this is on board any ships.

Cant speak for Jewel, but I know alot of ships have them now.

Freestyle coke machines are included with a soda package and you get a special cup with a chip in it that activates the machine.

The soda package onboard includes the freestyle machines and fountain drinks at any bar/venue.... can drinks are not included.

Our friends were just on Freedom, they had them on there. We were on Jewel in April and not on her at that point. Kathy

Does anyone have a list of ships that have the Freestyle machines? I would get the package if the freestyle machine is on the Brilliance because I drink alot of water. The flavored Dasani is yummy.

So far, the Freesytle machines are only on ships that sail out of the US year round. That includes Freedom, Oasis, Allure, Explorer, Majesty, and Enchantment. Not sure if Grandeur has the machines.

It's entirely possible for Navigator to get the machines before dry dock. The machines do not require a dry dock to install, they were installed on Oasis, Allure, and others with no dry dock. Royal could decide to put them in this coming November since Navigator is staying in Galveston year round from then.

May have to consider the soda package this time if they do. One less thing to lug on board. I do like the sweet tea they have on board though. Never did get the brand they use.

I never had sweet tea on board a Royal ship. Maybe it's something particular to specific ships?

Hello Mika, we’re glad you enjoy the Coke Freestyle machines. We do not have plans to have them onboard Jewel of the Seas in 2014.

Adam 30th October, 2012 at 3:14 pm
Hello George, currently the Coca-Cola ® Freestyle machines have only been introduced onboard; Majesty of the Seas, Explorer of the Seas, Freedom of the Seas and Oasis of the Seas. Allure of the Seas is then scheduled to receive it in November followed by Enchantment of the Seas in December. Please note that due to possible unforeseen delays, these dates may shift. Thank you.

Never heard of SWEET TEA, and I drink it all the time. Its ice tea and you sweetened it yourself is what I get.

Sorry, it wasn't sweet tea. But it was so good, I didn't have to add much to it to make it the way I like it. Very smooth and not bitter at all.

"Sweet tea" is definitely a southern thing. In most restaurants here in San Antonio if you order iced tea, the waiter will ask you if you want sweet or unsweet.

I didn't realize RCCL had pre-sweetened tea either. I became a fan of the Strawberry/Kiwi drink on Oasis, though.

We are going on the repositioning cruise from Boston in October 2014 on the Brilliance of the Seas and since it's recently come out of dry dock, has it been fitted with the Freestyle Coke Machines?
