Ultimate Dining Package and Playmakers

Recommended Posts

Leaving on Symphony on Saturday and have the Ultimate Dining Package.  Looking for a definitive answer if Playmakers is covered or not.  Searched and only find old threads that it was hit or miss.  Hopefully there is someone out there with a recent experience.  Thanks.

I'm going on Independence of the Seas in March.  I sent an email to Royal asking this same question(and Johnny Rockets) and got a reply from Royal that it was included.  But I have heard both sides as well.  My plan is if it fits, we will go there and if they try to charge me, show the email from my phone.

 

Good luck on your cruise.

NO.  Playmakers is not covered by the Ultimate Dining Package.

 

The explanation is the Playmakers is a Bar, not a Restaurant.

Found this on an UDP review thread for Symphony:

On 12/23/2018 at 7:03 PM, romesauce said:

Playmakers: Be warned as we weren't. Playmakers is NOT included in the UDP. We thought since it's an a la carte place, we'd get the $35 dollars to use per person for lunch here. That was not the case. We were NOT told this when we mentioned to the hostess booking our reservations we wanted to do lunch at Playmakers on Sunday since it would be football Sunday. FYI, seating is super limited and gets crowded quickly. They also let people not paying for food or drinks just sit in the booths and watch whatever game is on. We came in for lunch and because there were no seats available in the main area, we sat at a booth in the arcade area. This booth did have the game we wanted to watch on the tv but no sound. We talked to the manager whom was awesome and asked if we could have audio for the game and he said he couldn't since the speakers in the arcade area is on a different system. We mentioned that we were charged for our food and we came here since we thought we would be covered with our UDP. He said that Royal considers Playmakers a "bar with food" and not a specialty restaurant and this is why it's not part of the UDP. He told us that this has happened quite a bit and there should be notice about it. He also refunded us the amount we were charged because of the confusion.

Yeah, that was me that Allura_317 quoted. I sailed the Symphony in December and had the UDP. That was our experience at Playmakers in December. It's not included in the UDP according to the staff and manager there.
