2 for 1 drink promos

Last time we were on DCL they offered 2 for 1 drinks in the afternoon on some days from 2-4pm. Do they still do this? We arent big drinkers, but hey - it helps the budget

FYI we are on the Magic in a couple of weeks if that makes a difference.

Yes. We have been offered 2 of 1 drinks on some mornings (bloody mary or mimosa) before 12:00. Then in the afternoons sometimes they would offer 2 for 1 drink of the day.

2 for 1 on CC after 3 pm. Usually Konk Coolers but other drinks have been 2 for 1 also. It is usually whatever they have left over that they don't want to drag back to the ship

There was a 2 for 1 special almost every night in the Tube on the Fantasy last month and in the afternoon, too! The afternoon drinks were usually the drink of the day, and were decent choices. The evening drinks were not usually "popular" or common bar drinks.

Oh yes, one random day on the pool deck (we stopped up after one of our days in port; one of the St.s), I ordered the drink of the day & the waitress said, "Well, right now, we are offering 2-for-1 Mai Tais (not the drink of the day)." I want to say it was maybe 2:30-3pm. I of course went for it & gave one to DH 8)

On our Halloween cruise on the Dream last year they had 2 for 1 specials but did NOT on the Magic in May of this year. I kept hoping they would but they did not.

In June on the Magic, they had a happy hour in the afternoon that included the drink of the day and draft beers. Unfortunately for me, I usually do not like fruity drinks, and the drink of the day often seems to be something like that. But my husband enjoyed the beer specials in his refillable mug!

Has anyone recently sailed on the Fantasy and if so were there 2 for 1 offerings? Is the Disney beer stein worth it?

My responses above were for the Fantasy in June. DH got the beer stein several cruises ago but did not break even (& didn't care really).

2-fers on Castaway Cay......YEP!

It was later in the afternoon on CC and the DW wanted a bottle of water, and I was wanting something with a little more malt and barley... I had been hearing the waiters on the adult beach hawking 2-4-1 drinks they were carrying. We didn't want the fruity type drinks, so I walked to the bar. The 2-4-1 was good there, also. Best beverage deal of the trip! 2 Bud Light Limes and 2 bottles of Evian for 8 bucks!

Is it advertised or do you just have to be in the right place at the right time?

They were listed on the Navigator in the Dining hours area on the back page.

What's the Beer Stein deal? I don't drink beer, but my DH does so it might be something he'd be interested in.
