We were on the Celebration a couple weeks ago. We bought our 18 year old son a soda card for 17.00. It was for unlimited soda anywhere on the boat. For adults, I think it ran about 29.00. We didn't buy one. We bought his card as soon as we got on the ship.

If you drink a lot of soda by all means buy the adult card also. It is a good deal. We did it on our last cruise. They are great and never had a problem getting any with the card. In fact i got a sprite with my every dinner. the Cocktail waitress would bring me one automatically without me ordering one every night. Great service... Char

$30 for a week of soda. At $1.50 a can, that's 20 sodas. That's 3 a day. I suggest that if you also drink anything else, pay for your soda one at a time. There is all kinds of drinks on the ship that are free. Juices, water, milk etc etc etc. Guy

When we went on the Triumph in Feb hubby got the soda card and I didn't.

He used it and got a soda and went to another bar and got another soda and gave it to me. I'm wondering how many people do that? We were both able to use the card but he just had to get the sodas.

I'm lucky there weren't and SODA POLICE around

You can get the drinks from any bar on the ship and bartender at dinner. We probally drank about 8 to 10 sodas each a day! Its a good deal. Any time we walked by a bar, we got us a drink.

We bought soda cards as soon as we got on board, two adults and one child. My husband and daughter used them so much that it was a great deal. I only used mine maybe once a day, at lunch usually. I preferred to drink the coffee, juice and lemonade.

The soda cards we bought our 2 teenage boys on the Imagination was probably the best deal of the cruise! They drank unlimited sodas, both with meals, and throughout the day and night. Me, I made do during the day with the free lemonade, fruit punch, iced tea and water, and my husband paid a little extra for wine with our dinners.

A friend told me that there is a similar card for the alcohol drinks. Does anyone know if that is true? We're leaving on the Jubilee 7/26

We just got back fromthe Conquest on 6/29/03. The soda cards for kids were $22.99 and for adults $34.99. They are for unlimted "fountain" drinks anywhere, excludes cans and the 20 oz. bottles. Room service only brings the bottles, so the cards won't work there.
