Refreshment Package

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a copy of the refreshment package drinks that are available? I was able to get the refreshment package while my DH got the deluxe drink package and I would really like to know what is allowed. Thank you in advance.

Ok , so the non-alcoholic drinks are what exactly? Can you order any virgin cocktail? Is it a smoothie? Not sure exactly what they mean here. Thank you for taking the time.

Any virgin cocktail.  Smoothies without protein powder.

I've had this package before and consider it worthwhile, and bought it again for my upcoming February cruise on Oasis with bff! I love the morning specialty coffees from the cafe and could get any drink, including frozen drinks, that I wanted without the alcohol! Better yet, I got the package on sale for $18 per day!

I was on the Oasis 10/21 sailing and was able to get any drink from the Vitality Cafe, including the ones with protein for free with the refreshment package. I enjoyed 2 of these each day. I wish I had taken a picture, but right on the menu it said All drinks are included in the refreshment and deluxe drink packages.

 

The ones with protein usually cost $7 each so I was very happy to see them included!

You can get anything your husband can as long as it doesn't contain alcohol.  So, if you know what he can get, go from there.  Enjoy!

Are you able to use this package while dining in a specialty restaurant ?  

 

Thanks

What is the price to look for when booking this package?   How low in price have you seen it ?  Still have over a year to book, so no rush for me 🙂

As  a previous poster said $18 seems to be the floor.    I got it at that price for my wife on our Christmas Freedom cruise.

Last Memorial Day weekend it was on sale for our upcoming cruise in 2 weeks for $18/day.  Might go on sale for that this weekend - Black Friday.

Just back from Indy and we got anything without alcohol.  Mochas, cappacino, non-alcoholic virgin slushy drinks, etc.  Funny thing was they had the drink of the day without alcohol on trays going around the pool.  If you ordered one, they would put the shot in (carrying the full bottle on the tray).  We asked for one without the shot put in, but no can do!  She would only give us one after putting a shot in.  I guess I understand it has to do with scanning the card,, but really, couldn't you have just given us a glass and not put the shot in?  No?  OK, off to the bar to get a virgin one.  

 

As for specialty restaurants, I guess you could conceivably get one.  I was never able to get a drink in any restaurant with dinner but then again this was the strangest cruise I have ever been on as far as the crew goes.  They let us order one for the most part (except we were told nothing but Sake or Japanese beer could be served at Izumi) they just never brought the drinks.  Any night.  No matter the restaurant.  And I know you can get more than sake or beer at Izumi (saw the waiters getting drinks other nights at the Schooner Bar) our waitress was new and I didn't want to squabble over a virgin daiquiri.

Refreshment package for our cruise is currently $15 per day.  Black Friday special, maybe? I cancelled the $18 per day I had paid and re-ordered it at $15.

What is the difference between specialty coffee, premium coffee, and espresso at latitudes?  Thanks

Specialty and Premium are synonyms in the case of RC coffee.  Espresso, latte, and cappucino are examples of specialty/premium coffee.

So the specialty coffee on the Refreshment Package could be a latte.

I wonder where I get the specialty coffees and teas, besides the dining room, on the Mariner of the Seas?? Does anyone know?
