Default IS juice free at the AM buffet?

In another forum, Some one who sailed in December 2006 said the Juice for the AM buffets were know longer there and when he asked for some they said to go to the bar and pay for it??? I just want some comfirmation on this because when I went on the Diamond in September2006 it was fee. What do they ecpect our kids to drink in the mornings COKE?

It was pointed out to me the juice is free still with room sevice...

And I guess I could get 8 things of milk with my one bowl of cereal...

There is free juice for every meal in the dining room. In the Horizon Court, there was juice on all of our cruises (breakfast only).

A waitstaff person had juice and coffee on a cart and stopped at all the tables to refill or give you the first one. You can also get you own coffee.

What ship is that? There was nada on the Island, Grand, and Golden (twice). Coffee, tea (iced and hot), and water. That's all.

You sure it was a Princess ship?

Good to here, I had one guy say the oposite and it looks like you have sailed in 2007 so I will believe you.

The reason that I remember is that we had an early shore excursion one day. We always eat in the dining room, but that day we did not have enough time.

The juice can around on a cart (no dispensers). I don't remember if it was just orange or if there were other selections.

Also during the day, I wanted some "bug juice" or something, but alas, nada in the Horizon Court.

Just off the Golden this past Saturday. All kinds of juices in the buffet serving area near the opposite end where you get your plate and silverware. If they don't have the kind of juice you'd like out in the serving area, just ask the server behind the counter. He'll be more than happy to pour you a fresh glass of the juice of your choice. They keep the juices in pitchers underneath the serving area.

Default JUICE

Juice not really free, you pay for it in your fare !!

Anyway..I am a tomato juiceaholic, one who is addicted to the said red stuff, they seem to keep it under the counter in the buffets, but have always got a glass on request at 'Brekkie' whether in Buffet or dining room.

Anybody seen the grapefruit juice ?

Best wishes from Australia

Of all things that are not free....coke tops the list! Juices, tea, coffee, water, lemonade are all "free". A coke is usually about $2.50 unless you bought the 'pop card'.

I sailed last year, but there was juice available all day every day. There is also a selection of milk, skim milk, 2% milk, and chocolate milk in those little boxes, the kids should like that!

I haven't seen lemonade on Princess. It must have been a one time thing.

Grand Princess in April: Yes, there was juice at breakfast. So, it's OK, you won't have to cancel your cruise.
