Question Drinks in basic Allegrissimo package?

Can anyone tell me what types of beers, wines, mixed drinks, etc. are available with the basic Allegrissimo drink package?
I wish I could see some sort of menu with everything listed - is there a thread on here that has this?
Just wondering if things like Blue Moon or Stella Artois beer, non-premium brand martinis or cosmopolitans, tropical drinks, etc. are included.
Thanks for any help - the MSC website isn't very forthcoming with details.

For some reason search is not working. But I found my previous post.

Here are the bar menus. You need premium package for drinks with a red asterisk.

If looking for real fruit juice and veggie drinks, the hidden gem is in the gym/spa area. They have a juice bar.. Only one place other I found fresh squeeze oj at one of the main pool bar, starboard side.

Thanks, Bosjoe. So no OJ in the buffet or MDR at breakfast? That's different. But thank you for the link to the bar menus. Looks like we'll do just fine with the Allegrissimo Escape vouchers - the website said the available drinks were the same as the Allegro Classic. I am SO excited to see this ship!!!
We've been to Italy four times - once on a Med cruise, the others independent land trips - and I can't wait to get a "taste" of it again.

I was referring to fresh squeeze juice. Regular juice us available in the MDR and buffet.

So if I drink Grey Goose or Effen Vodka I would have to order the premium package for a martini as an example?

That is correct, I use Grey Goose, so I had to get the premium package. If you do get the premium package make sure you tell them what brand to use in your drinks. Same thing with Tequila, I like Patron this was under premium.

Thanks Bosjoe for such great insight and pics regarding the bar menu onboard. One quick question- Is regular Jack Daniels included in the basic Allegrissimo package? I notice they have Jack Black Label under the premium spirits, but no mention on any menu of plain Jack.

Thanks!

Tony

So would the canned beers be included in the Classic package? It only states draft beer in the description. I noticed that there were red asterisks next to what was in the premium package.

Thanks!

Yes all drinks at the juice bar charge a fee. They use fresh fruits, vegetables, honey's milk etc. These are included in both drink packages.
Also there is no Alcohol at this bar. It was funny the first day when the server came over while I was going through the menu and said sir there are no alcohol drinks here. I had a chuckle.

If better wines are your preference, then the premium package is the way to go. Yes its over $10 more, but gives you a better selections of wines at dinner. I do not have a MDR wine list. I had 2 glasses of Conundrum wine at dinner, which is $11 per glass, and not to mention the nicolas feuillatte champagne I got into after mid-week.

That I am not sure. They are included with the premium which I had. The people I got to know where drinking mixed drinks and not beer, they had the classic.

From a sales rep at MSC, here is a list of beers from last summer, she said only draft is available in the basic package. This is the med list and the beers will be different she couldn't find the Carib list.

One other note if you do not know. Make sure you order your drink packages before your cruise. I think online booking closes around 5 days prior. This will save you 15% then getting it while on board. Also when you order prior, you do not pay for it upfront, it will be on your ship account.

Also it will count to your points for the MSC club, every $200 spent onboard is one point.

Two questions. . .

When I pulled up the actual bar menus, Absolut is listed as a non-premium vodka. Is Absolut included in the basic package? and the voucher package?

Also, if it is $57 per day, do you have to order it for all 7 days?

Funny thing is for one leg of my b2b, the premium drink package is going to cost me more than the cruise. Hahahaha!!

I am a moderate drinker (4 - 5 per day, most but not all days) and while I like Keitel One, etc. Absolut would suit me fine while the other basic vodkas are not acceptable.

Thanks for any answers.

Fun
