Disney Cruises Fail Beer Lovers
I just returned from a fantastic cruise on one of Disney’s newest boats, the Magic; it was a magical vacation in every respect EXCEPT the beer. On a vacation where the liquor was flowing, great wine and spirits, Disney fell on its Mickey ears with the selection of beer on this boat. Let me give you a run down of the selections on the boat.
- Bud Light
- Bud Light Lime
- Miller Lite
- Michelob Ultra
- Coors Light
- Boddingtons Pub Ale
- Sam Adams Lager
I understand that a cruise has to cater to the masses, but with all the specialty spirits and wines that are way past what I can afford, I’d like to see Disney also start catering to the Craft Beer market. I’d like to know why they don’t try to appeal to the growing market segment of craft beer drinkers. Does it have to do with brand licensing in the ports of call of the ship? Please someone make sense of this for me!
Lucky for me I brought some large bottles of Lost Abbey, Bruery, and Goose Island which pacified me after dinner, but I would rather not have had to travel with the bottles knowing I could have purchased quality draft or bottled beer on this very expensive cruise.
Come one, Disney get this right, everything else is on the boat!
