Default Drink Coupon (gift)

On the Carnival website under the "gift" section you can purchase 4 drink coupons for $19.50.
I've never cruised Carnival but my experience with other cruise lines is that 4 drinks would cost more than that. Anyone know if this is for any type of drink? Or is it limited to beer? Sorry if this sounds dumb...
Thanks for any input.

The drink coupons are for beer and bar liquour. If you drink premium liqour they make you use two coupons. We found it was actually cheaper to pay as you go for house wine, beer and regular drinks. Every day they have a drink of the day. If you order in a regular glass its $3.39 (including tip).

i never had a problem with them at any time. Only thing is you can not buy the daily drink special in the Carnival cup.....that is extra. But any other time around the pool or casino or in any bar I was not denied anything with them. My kids always gave them to me for Mothers Day and my brithday and it ended up being a HUGE savings on my S&S card.
I was alble to use them for frozen Margaritas, Bacardi, scotch and water....whatever.

We just went on our first cruise in Nov of last year. We sailed out of Tampa on the Inspiration I bought myself many sets of these drink coupons and never,ever did I give them more than one coupon. My fiance' Ken drinks only preminum high end liquor and drinks and never did they ask for more than one coupon. I drank foo foo drinks all during the cruise and they also took only one coupon. They even showed him that they were giving him high end liquor by pouring it in front of him. The bar tenders on the ship were the best! We never were asked to give more than one coupon for any thing high end to drink. We are going on our second cruise and i plan to purchase on my budget sets of coupons again ahead of time. I never had a liquor bill and liked it that way. I used it as my budget system and plan to buy picture coupons this time also so they help me with the out of pocket expenses. Ro and Kenny

I bought many Carnival drink specials in the cup to bring home and they took my coupon for each and every one of them. I was giving them tips nothing big though. I even had one bartender who gave me two drinks for one coupon. The bartenders were so nice on the Inspiration. Ro
