Default Dining question

My wife and I are not big drinkers and are wondering if we will have to pay for cokes at dinner (we are scheduled for 5:45 sitting) even though we are going to have "soda cards"?

According to the Carnival website, the only restriction appears to be on Roon Service:

You can use your soda cards in the dining room. If you have the same bar waiter every night, they will know you have the soda card. Thats what happen to us on the Victory and Triumph. We had a soda waiting for us every night before we got to the table.

No you use the soda card at dinner. Not a problem at all, or you can have Tea or juice or water.

Jeff, just use your soda card one day,and you will not have to pull it out again.It is like magic.They know what you like to drink,and it will be waiting on you at the table breakfast,lunch,or dinner.They somehow note your drink pattern.

Thats great. I have heard that the service on the Conquest can be compared to a 5 star hotel. We are so excited to be able to go on this. We have considered upgrading our Aft balcony room (7445) to a full blown suite. Besides the additional space, is it correct that folks who have suites also get special embarkation privilages? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

As Luanne said, ask any questions you want. There are many years of cruising experience here on the boards and everybody just LOVES to talk cruising (have you noticed?) in between actual cruises....

A suite sounds lovely, but I think you also can't go wrong with an aft balcony cabin.

Well, we (wife) made our minds. We have decided to go with the Suite. We are staying in 7278. Anyone every stayed in a suite? We understand that there are special embarkation and debarkation privs. Can anyone elaborate?

The ONLY perk you get when booking a suite, is on the day of departure, your docs will have "Skippers Club" on them, and make sure you show that to ANYone when you arrive, and they will direct you to a VIP check-in. But on checkout, it does not help.
