Default Lemonade or Punch


After 33 cruises I can think of a lot of suggestions, but the first one that comes to mind is the selection of drinks available at the buffets. Without purchasing a drink, your options on most ships (not all of them) are water, coffee or ice tea. My DH and I, we're not ice tea drinkers, and we don't like coffee at noon, so we drink water. We've been on some ships that have lemonade and that is really great. I would like to see that added to all of the ships. Everyone doesn't like ice tea.

Just a little suggestions.....the bigger ones are coming later.

Happy Cruising

When I was on the Carnival Triumph, we were able to get juice all day in the buffet. NCL, is limited to water, iced tea or coffee.

I wish that NCL would offer juice in addition to iced tea.

Carnival also had soft-serve ice-cream & frozen yogurt machines available------another feature lacking on NCL.

Why cant they leave the juice machines open all day.It seems that after breakfast they are all shut down.I would like the juice to the ice tea.
Also bring back the FREE soda during dinner instead of the watered down ice tea.

On Ecstasy we enjoyed both Lemonade and punch all day long. I took a bottle of water or a coke into the dinning room for dinner I hated the way the water tasted on the ship.

On the Celebration-the juice machine was open all day. However, on the last day of the cruise they were completely out of Fruit Punch and Mango-Orange Punch (obvisouly everyone's favorite). My suggestion is to make sure they have plenty to serve during the entire cruise. We were miserable-even the tea wasn't good.
