"Drinks on Us" Wine Offerings on the Seaside

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Can anyone currently sailing on the Seaside with the "Drinks on Us" promotion please provide the names of the Red and White wines currently being poured?

 

I realize that they will probably change by September when we sail, however current pours will give me a sense of whether I should upgrade.

 

Thanks!!

I think the OP is asking about BRANDS...for example - is the vodka Smirnoff or Ketel One....or Tanqueray vs Gilbey's for the gin.....

I was just looking over my booking confirmation. We're booked in YC for January, and on our confirmation under "price," it says "Drinks on Us." Does that mean we'll have to upgrade to receive premium spirits, even if we're booked in YC?

No ... YC guests automatically get the deluxe package - though it's never indicated on travel docs.

Liquor included in Drinks on Us Promo:

 

Gin: Beefeater

Vodka: Smirnoff

Whiskey: Dewar's White Label, Seagram's 7 Crown

Rum: Bacardi Superior White

 

These are all of the liquors included in the Drinks on Us package (i.e. if you don't see what you like, or are a picky drinker, you'll need to upgrade). https://m.msccruisesusa.com/en-us/Assets/2018%20Drink%20Package%20Comparison%20Guise%20with%20DRINKS%20ON%20US.pdf Here is a link to see the breakdown of what you get with the package upgrades.

 

It also includes, a couple of wines, draft Heineken, and cheap macro bottles (Bud Light, Miller Lite, Coors, Corona, Bud).

HELP. I literally just got off the phone with MSC and was told the YC (for an upcoming Sept Cruise) had the CLASSIC package and that we'd have to upgrade to the Deluxe Package.

 

Thoughts? change in policy? typical MSC not knowing stuff ?? ;p;p

I'd say it's a case of " typical MSC not knowing stuff"! ;p Posters on the site, who have been on MSC in the last couple of weeks have reported having the deluxe package included. We certainly did back in April!

So Frustrating! I was told by 2 different MSC reps that we would have to upgrade ($56pp/week (not day) to get deluxe package otherwise we'd be drinking Woodbridge Chardonnay in the YC. ARGH>>>>>

I would not worry about it. The reps on phone have been saying that about drink packages for yc. But you will be able to order any drink except those with 2 stars.

Thanh you Beamafar, I can rest easy now with my beer at dinner.

Actually, in fairness, thanks goes to wetcoast for the link to the flyer. However, I appreciate the acknowledgement - it seems to be in short supply lately.

 

Hope you enjoy your beer at mealtimes in the MDR - I know my DH does. :D

Every reply to the original question has been off topic.

 

What was asked at the beginning was does anyone know " the names of the Red and White wines now being poured " as included in the Drinks are on Us promotion on the Seaside

 

We know that MSC says they will offer " a selection of 2 reds and 2 whites "

 

It would be nice to hear the answer to the question asked, so that one can decide if upgrading to the Classsic package is worthwhile.

 

A good question. Anyone know the answer ??
