I'm not too familiar with this program, but that's crazy there is no bourbon. Good on adding extra choice. No thanks on the sugary drinks for me.

This is great news for diamond members who don’t drink alcohol, neither my daughter or husband do.

On Allure last week my daughter was told by a barista that one of her free drinks would cover an iced chai. She was excited to get that treat every day.

We love the Royal C's Diamond happy hour. In fact, on both our Royal cruises (we transferred to Diamond from Celebrity Elite) we have not spent anything on alcohol.

Just asked on Symphony and they have not heard of this so no frozen drinks here during HH. 😒

My DH would be delighted to have a virgin frozen drink! We're on Grandeur next month, so it will be interesting to see if this has made it onto the ship by then.

More options = more better, I just wonder why they are being stingy over a shot of alcohol with this

Yay for the improvement.  I don't drink alcohol so virgin drinks is a great addition.  That said, I only turned Platinum after last cruise so still have a long ways to go ☹️

They're not, you just have to use one of your 3 vouchers.  

 

Can't please everyone I guess

A frozen drink without alcohol is like a day without sunshine 😇(today in Florida for example)

I think they changed it from "Baileys" to "Irish Cream" when they did that. I noticed whatever off brand they were pouring people during happy hour was almost translucent 🤢.

The three of us made Prime after the Harmony in Nov. DW & DS also made the 2400+ point level on that cruise alone for the extra free cruise. So, I agree with you.....nice to have the casino open for that perk alone! Enjoy!

I do like a Baileys after dinner, or in my coffee during my 6am flight. Ha! Irish Cream is a bit different, but doable.

But can you actually taste the alcohol?  That is one thing I'm guaranteed, and I'm an infrequent drinker....I never get any feeling from any drinks on Royal. I always take something at the events, sometimes 2 or 3 of them...absolutely nothing....sober as the proverbial judge...and they are supposed to be alcoholic drinks. I suppose my liver thanks me.

When sailing from PC, my pre cruise ritual is a couple or three Bailey's.  I'm not driving over😉

 

Skipping Coco Cay and having a sea day extended the casino bar hours today.

I in in the minority.  The New Amsterdam doesn't bother me nor does the fake Baileys

I should have guessed you weren't at Coco Cay by what time it is and where you're drinking. Ha!
