Self serve fountain drinks - coke freestyle


Recommended Posts

Sailing on Indy in a few weeks, wife and I have drinks package, which I assume includes a souveneir cup for use in the freestyle machines.

 

we wont use these but our kids might.

 

Question is how do they work?, do you need to swipe your sea pass or do the cups contain RFID like at disney.

There are no Freestyle machines on Indy.

There is an RFID chip in the base of the special cup that must be used to activate the machine.

 

It was fun people watching on the Oasis as we sat in Sorrentos.

 

People would walk up to the machines with a regular glass, put some ice in it and then try to get soda out of the machine. They would ultimately go to the people working at Sorrentos that the machine was not working.

 

I did tell a few people how it worked when I was within earshot.:)

Odd that they would not put a sign up on the machine telling people they needed special cups.

Did any ship have Freestyle 5 years ago? (last Radiance dry dock)

You are probably right, I'll bet no ship had the machines back then.

 

I should have mentioned Navigator, which has had a much more recent dry dock, and was going to continue to be based at a US port, and they still didn't install the machines.
