Vodka Brands Moved From Classic To Premium Package?

According to the listings of Vodkas on Celebrities website it looks as though Ketel One,(and possibly Grey Goose and Belvedere among others) have been moved up to the premium package. It shows Absolute and Smirnoff as the go to Vodkas for the classic package. Does anyone know if this is true or when it changed? My last cruise I drank Kettle,(and I believe Goose and Belvedere) w/ the Classic pkg. If true I will probably have to (want to) upgrade.

If my memory serves me correctly Kettle One and Grey Goose were always on the premium package. I am a Grey Goose drinker and have always taken the premium package because of it. Maybe the bartender was just nice to you and gave you premium vodka on the classic package.

By the way, Costco's knock off of Grey Goose is very good. As a matter of fact, many folks claim that it is actually Grey Goose in a different bottle.

 

What's the name of it???

 

Sorry - got it already...:)

I saw on an earlier posting of bar menus for the Reflection that Ketel One was within the classic package......bummer that it isn't now as it is my favorite, but I do have to agree the Costco Kirkland vodka (there are 2 kinds - you have to get the one that is distilled 5 times). I have heard that Costco hired the Grey Goose guy to make them vodka, that coincidentally is a lot like the Grey goose one.

Jackdiamond, that is true

Thank you. My problem is that the Kirkland bottle is to high for my freezer; and, I prefer my vodka chilled for my martini. As a result, I have, on occasion, purchased the U.S. version in the shorter bottle; and, when that it finished I pour the knock of grey goose into that bottle.

Total Wine has a Grey Goose knock off in a too big bottle also - doesn't fit anywhere. They also have a 7 times distilled vodka from Minnesota of all places that is quite good ( and inexpensive ). ABC liquor has the sane thing in a slightly different bottle but their version is more than the Total Wine version. Gotta love Total Wine!

If I could get back to my original question :) -Does anyone know if this is true or when it changed? I know that the Classic package definitely had Kettle One and either Goose or Belvedere. Four of us bought the Classic for our upcoming cruise because of the Ketel One. That is no longer the case according to the website. I am not complaining -just wondering when and if this has happened.

I always get the premium package because I will only have Grey Goose in my Caesar's. It has always been in the premium package.

I know Grey Goose has been in the Premium package since at least end-Sept. 2012. Goose is my husband's second choice for vodka (Tito's being first). When we were on Silhouette last year, you had to buy the premium package for the Goose vodka.

There is a list of specific liquors that are on the classic package in the new craft menus on the ships, however there is also a statement that the classic package includes any drink up to $8. I asked on the infinity just this past week and I was told that the list of specific brands was representative, not inclusive. If you want a drink that costs $8 or less, it is included.

This makes sense, the question is, what do they charge for a Kettel drink? Is it $8.50 :)
