Default can I bring my own soda?

Does Carnival have any rules relating to how much soda you can bring on board with you? I can't drink caffeine and usually the only caffeine free soda on board is 7-up or Sprite, which I can't stand. If I board with my own, will they take it from me?

You can bring a "reasonable amount". Maybe a 12-pack/couple of 2-liter bottles. You can "refill" along the way, if necessary. CCL sells "caffeine-free" Coke/Diet Coke at the bar.

We took 2 6-packs of the small bottles of pepsi with us on our last cruise. We packed it in a rolling cooler and had our cabin steward keep ice in it for us. They didn't say anything about it.

You are allowed to bring your own on. We always bring our own Pepsi and water in our carry on because they only have Coke products on board.

Default Bring your own soda

I drink ginger ale only, because it keeps my tummy settled, so I packed 12 cans of diet ginger ale and 12 bottles of water in a rolling cooler. It made it easier to board and I was not worried about leakage in my luggage. My other carryon fit perfectly on top of the cooler. Once on-board, I kept it on the balcony with ice. I even used the cooler once when going ashore to the beach.

On my last cruise, in the cabin there were Cokes, Diet Cokes, Sprite, and Caffeine-free Cokes.
