Default drink coupons

The drink coupons that can be bought four at a time, Are they for any drink and It doesn't seem to be that great of a deal unless you can specify the type of liqour in it . Can you order top shelf and not bar brands.

Can you buy them on ship or only before the cruise .

I heard only before the cruise. Also, you need to get them more than 4 days ahead of your sailing date. What I saw from those coupons is you will save no more than probably $1 for each drink. Which really to me is not a big deal. Even the soda card I think is not very reasonable. I just don't see myself drinking $20 in soda in a week.

What I did find out is that the average price for a drink is anywhere from $4-5 per drink. I know a bucket of beers is about $12, which is for 4 beers. That is about average with any local bar.

No prob dude. Another thing I have learned is that the casino can really break your pocket. If you can manage to stay involved within all the activities going on, and stay away from the casino, you won't spend so much money. I personally don't like giving away my money, so I could care less for the money pit. Here's another tip, on your first day on the ship, go to the bar that is mostly open and get to know the bartender quick. Then slip them an early tip and let them know you will take care of them. Nice way to get free shots and extra strong drinks.

Dave, where are you going? If you are headed to Grand Cayman, and you want to do Stingray City tour, I found a dive shop that does it for much cheaper and they take you out to some coral reefs, total of 3 snorkeling stops. If you e-mail me before I leave today, I will give you the info on them. Only heard great things.

I have used the drink coupons on carnival. They dont save you 1.00 per drink. actually its a lot less. Drink coupons are used mostly to keep your sign and sail card down. I get us the coupons instead of buying our drinks. it saves us from getting our card out and signing and making sure we get the right card back. with the coupon you hand them the coupon and you are on your way.
I also buy the photo coupons.. its like prepaying for your photos ahead of time. That way I dont have a big bill at the end. Our total bill for the week was 333.00 for the both of us.
