Default Beer Selection?

Never been on Carnival before, was wondering about the beer fare...Is it the typical Bud/Coors/Miller routine (no offense to the people who drink 'em) or do they have some microbrews or other niche beers to enjoy? I.E. Sierra Nevada, Anchor Steam, Negra Modelo...

Thanks in advance for the info! :c)

Hey Army,

I sure did see a lot of soldiers on our last cruise who enjoyed their beer. Where are you stationed? Hubby leaving for Iraq tomorrow.

I'm stationed at Fort Jackson, SC. Been here for a few months and decided the stress warranted rewarding myself with a cruise. Can't complain though, SC is far from Iraq, in both distance AND stress levels. Hope your husband has a safe and enjoyable tour (it is possible to enjoy being there, just have to improvise).

Thanks Wade. Good Luck to you too. I have been to Fort Jackson. Wasn't much there back then. Hope it has improved. We are at Fort Hood.

Anything? Even a Corona or a Sam Adams will do! :c) There's gotta be someone else on this board who drinks beer...just wondering if I should BMOB or not. I know I'm pushing it here, but, does Carnival even have stuff on tap? :c) (Fingers crossed)

Wade, Hubby is home, and he says to tell you they have everything you could ever want. They also have beer on tap. Best bet is to buy a bucket. Cheaper that way. They will open one for you, and you can either sit there, or take them to your room.

I've been trying to dig up a full list for you but I'm not having much luck.

I did find all the regular stuff. Some sites say they stock beers from the ports of call so you can try some "native" stuff as well.

Sorry, no draft beer on Carnival, bottles and cans only and no micro brews. Miller, Budweiser, Coors, Corona, etc. I'm a Killians lover myself and sure do miss it on the ship.

I see about 6 or 7 beers on the list that I am generally agreeable with :c) Actually, I could go the whole cruise on Sam Adams alone and still be happy...Thanks a lot for the information!

Wow, I'm surprised that the bucket of bottled beers is cheaper than what's on tap?!?!! Usually it's the other way around.

I noticed that have Labatt Blue there. Of all teh great Canadian beers, they only have Lab Blue
