I didn’t see it or many beers on tap to sample. I did it on the Horizon last year.  But I guess you can ask them when you are there

Yes they do.  Currently on the Sunrise and my DH had a sampler yesterday.  Think there were 4 types, one he didn’t love😂

Is beer sampler included in Cheers or do we need to just order each one 5 minutes apart.

Samplers (called flights) are small servings of beer, usually 3-4 ounces.  You don't pay individually for each brew in a flight.  Thus for Cheers, it's one price for all 4 beers chosen.

I do know what a flight is I'm really asking if you can order under Cheers Drink Package or do we just need to try each beer one at a time.

That's what I have to do in a full size glass. I find the little sippy cups of beer is not enough to get a good idea of if you'd like it or not. After I've tried all of the beers in the flight, I let my wife drive home. 🥂

You order a flight ex Cheers, you get it for 1 price, not 4. You are drinking 12 oz of beer total, same as a single bottle or draft.   Why would they charge you for 4 samples?

We have not had cheers before, are having it this time. I know there are several things you can not use it for but feel the flight is a grey area because it is same size as one full beer. I was not suggesting having to pay for 4 mini beers. I guess I will just wait & ask when we are on ship.

I thought Cheers only gives a discount on the price of the flight. Or am I getting confused with another line’s beverage package?

There is a 25% discount on wines and spirits above $20 and same on wine and champagne by the bottle.

The package rules on beer simply say "beer (including self-serve beer stations - PYOB) ...up to $20 per serving.

Price wise a flight is less than $20 and one flight is considered 1 serving. (beer servings can be up to 16 oz.)

I looked at the rules and while they did not specifically address flights or samplers, I remember them not being covered on previous cruises (rum sampler, alchemy martini tasting).  If you don't want to pay separately for the flight you would need to order 5 minutes apart a full glass/bottle of whatever you are having.  If there are 4, that would count toward 4 of your 15 so you might want to just purchase the flight separately (should only be 1 drink if counted).

I agree it is vague and you might get different answers from different ships/servers.  Since you use the term "we" I am assuming a spouse.  My husband and I are fine tasting each other's drink, and if you are then each of you could get a different one 5 minutes apart and only be getting 2 drinks each.  While the rules do prohibit sharing, I doubt that if both parties have Cheers it would be considered sharing.  If it feels odd though, again you could just purchase the sampler separately from Cheers.

Cheers discounts bottles of wine and eligible drinks that are in excess of $20, plus seminars and classes.
