We are booked in a Central Park balcony next week. I know one of the perks is a free lunch at Sabor, Giovanni’s, or Johnny Rockets. I see that Giovanni’s and JR are open on embarkation day for lunch. Has any one been able to use their free lunch that day? Thanks!

I think its on your seapass, so you should be able to, if not then I'm sure management can correct any charges that you might incur.

Unless they've changed it without posting it, the Central Park Balcony perk is lunch at Giovanni's only. Lunch at Johnny Rockets is a perk for Boardwalk Balcony rooms, and neither gets lunch at Sabor.

CP lunch at Giovanni's is for 2, while lunch at JR under the Boardwalk promo is for the entire cabin. Also, red wine vs. soda package for the Boardwalk.

Should this be reflected in your reservation somewhere if you have a CP or BW balcony? I'm not 100% sure this is true for each and every BW or CP reservation. I once got $150 OBC from RCCL in a CP balcony and the other perks mentioned here were not included.

No, the Central Park / Boardwalk balcony perks are not noted in your reservation.

This depends on the ship (ours was Harmony)...it could be lunch at Jamie's for CP.....Our BW cabins we could eat at JR's for lunch or dinner.

Then how do they know you are eligible for the free lunch?

Your SeaPass card shows your stateroom number.

Oasis in March we could use the CP perk for lunch for 2 at Giovanni’s, Sabor or Johnny Rockets.

Couple weeks ago on Allure, we received a letter in our cabin that defined the offer. We were told to take the letter to Johnny Rockets with us.

With the increase of pricing to now eat at JR's and probably the lack of interest....no wonder they are offering it as an option for CP bookings.

Wait, this is the first time I’m hearing about this. We booked a boardwalk balcony on the Symphony for July. So we just walk up to JR and get a free meal? I didn’t see it mentioned in our reservation.

You won’t see it mentioned on your reservation. You will get a letter in your room on embarkation day outlining the benefits. In addition to the meal T JR’s you will also get 2 soda packages.

We haven't ever had a CP balcony, but this is the same thing we have been told. Gives you the choice of these three, plus a bottle of red wine and gaming lesson. We double checked.

Does anyone have experience with the Central Park perks when booking through a travel agent promotion? I have a CP Balcony reservation via a warehouse club TA who is offering perks that sound more like the Boardwalk perks (soda package, lunch at Johnny Rocket's) instead of the usual CP perks. Will I get both, or will the TA perks replace the normal CP perks?

The crew on the ship do not know how you are booked. You should get the RC perks that come your CP balcony.

On Symphony we had lunch included in Jamies Italian. It had to be on a sea day and amazingly was good, unlike the Jamies experience in the UK land based restaurants.
