Default Any give aways the first day on AOS?

Prior to sailing on VOS I had read a review from a cruisemate member who mentioned that they were doing drawings in the promenade the first day. You got tickets by visiting different booths and hearing about different things.

The drawing were for free bingo, spa service, ect.

Is RCL still doing this? If so, does anyone know approx. what time this event occurs?

I have been on various RCCL ships with promenades Iincl AOS) and never heard of that and I usually spend some time on the promenade the 1st day. There are various booths promoting soda cards, wine tasting, wine packages but I don't recall any giveaways.

No give aways that I'm aware of. But they do sell expensive drinks and you get to keep the glasses. Take your dirty souvenior glass to your cabin and your cabin steward will wash it and you can take it home. After my third cruise I got smart and ordered my sail away drinks in plastic cups.Less expensive and taste just as good.

Thank you. The last time I was on VOS in 2003 they handed out raffle tickets that you got by walking by the various boths and than latter that afternoon they gave away items. You had to be present to win. So maybe, they are still doing this on AOS. We sailed out of Maimi on VOS.

Yes, they still do the raffle. On Adventure it was held around five to six at night. You got tickets by walking around the promonade area and listening whats available on the ship. For example they gave away art work, spa treatments, bingo tickets, soda package along with other items.

If you are on the ship it is worth participating.
