Draft beer on the Fantasy?

With the pre-maiden voyage cruises going on, I would be interested to know what draft beers are available on the Fantasy.

I'm considering the $15 beer mug deal but would want to make sure that there are drafts that I like before partaking in the beer mug deal.

Thanks!

Here's what I remember from the pre-inaugural western on the Fantasy:

Stella
Bud Light
Long Board
Michelob Amber Bock
Guinness (will be available on MV)
Heinekin
Red Hook Pale Ale

Nope, $15 gets you a 22oz DCL mug. This can then be filled at any bar on the ship serving draft for prices from $4.95 (Bud Light and Amber Bock) and up (I think the most expensive was $7.95). But remember! This is a 22oz mug, so if you just got a regular draft beer w/o the mug it would be the same price only 12 oz.

A beer withOUT the mug is actually a 16oz beer.

The mug was worth it for us


Here is a breakdown I figured out awhile back-

You cannot buy a 22oz beer only a 16oz.
Here is my info from an old post where I figured out all the math

22oz Glass Mug that is refillable.(pre purchase online or buy the FIRST day of cruise)

Cost is 14.95 plus a beer--about 6 bucks (~21.00)

a regular beer is 16oz. You pay that price for a beer (about 6 bucks-varies plus tip,we drink the more expensive ones) to fill a 22oz mug.

you can keep mug with you or turn it in when done drinking for the time being and get a little card for a refill, just don't forget to get a mug back at the end of your trip.

Here is the "DEAL"(breaking even on purchase price-because people have asked in the past) part broke down(I posted this several months ago on a beer thread).....

Ok, my husband and I figured this out before....We will say an average 16oz beer is $6.00 (Guinness being the most.....bud/miller light least)

MUG- $15.00 (equal to about the cost of 3ish regular small beers, I am aware that $6x3 does not equal 15 trying to simplify)

You get about 5 extra ounces per mug (yes they are 22 oz, but spillage, beer head etc. we will leave off an ounce )

So if you buy 3 beers in your mug, that is 15 bonus ounces which would be pretty close to a 16oz beer.

So, 9 mug beers would give you appx. 3 small beers worth of "extra" beer.

So, depending on what brand you are drinking ( they vary in price) you would have to order 9 or 10 beers with your mug.

(which we do NOT need a 7 day cruise for )

Math is not my one of my strong suits, but I think I got it right....

break even point

If the beer is $7 each, the break even is 5.7 uses. On your 6th beer, you have saved enough to pay for the mug. Each additional beer is a $2.63 savings assuming you want that last "extra 6 ounces".

The real math problem is mug versus BYOB. Assuming you enjoy the DCL draft as much as any BYOB beer (can or bottle), then you can calculate the penalty (higher cost) of not BYOBing your own beer. In other words, all things being equal, the amount of money you pay to offset the restrictions on BYOB (hassle to purchase and carry on, handling in room without true refrigerator, limits on where you can take the beer once open), then:

Price of a bottle of decent beer (6 pack), say $1.50 for 12 oz or $18 for 144 oz. (2 six packs)
Price for mug $15 and $7 plus 15% for 22 oz draft.

I will spare you the math, but the penalty at 2 six packs is roughly $49.32 (the math is not clean since multiples of 22 oz beer won't equal a multiple of 12 oz soon enough to be reasonable). Eventhough the mug price for oz drops over time (given the fixed nature of the mug purchase price), the differential will never start decreasing since the mug beer is 36.6 cents per oz and the bottle is 12.5 cents. The next rationale stop point is three six packs and that carries a $68.50 penalty. Whether you are going for 3 days or 7, the math is the same. You pay $8 extra to brink the draft and not hassle with BYOB - you decide on the cost/benefit analysis since the benefits are largely intangible.

(I ignored waste, the cost of buying the BYOB beer - they are potentially significant for some people but involve too many variables.)

I don't think I could drink such a big beer before it got warm. So even if I was getting a bigger beer, I wouldn't enjoy it as much, does that make sense? I think I'm better off bringing my own no matter what.
