For me, a cruise is my opportunity to alter my drinking patterns completely. At home I drink a lot of carbonated sodas, mixed occasionally with rum, gin or bourbon. And a cold beer is also a frequent beverage of choice.
On cruises, however, I stick pretty much with iced tea and lemonade (the cheap stuff). We don't frequent the lounges, and the only place I might enjoy an occasional diet drink is in the casino. In the dining room, I drink only iced water or tea. This rather strange (for me) behavior has somehow helped me to lose about two pounds on each of our last four cruises. Go figure!
