Default drink of the days on carnival

I didnt know this the first time around so heads up just incase you dont either.

I guess everyone assumes people know this lol.

But....they offer you this nice drink all the time in a pretty bright colored cup saying carnival and you get the drink of the day in it for 6.95. You can ask for the drink of the day in a GLASS and you get it for 3.95.

If anyone wants to buy a dozen plastic brightly colored glasses let me know I also have a moldy coconut monkey glass too

Good tip Liz, although I can drink the good stuff straight out of the bottle!

My favorite as well Brian. The cruise hasn't started until you get that first 'Funship Special' on sail away.

BTW-even though it's not the DOD on following days, the larger bars will have the 'Funship' premixed the rest of the week as well. You'll also get the refill price. Nice!

Getteing the cups is part of the fun but what you have them no need to keep buying them lol

So....here I am still trying to decide if I should buy the drink coupons ahead of time. They average out to $5.31 a drink. Do I understand that drinks of the day are always $3.99 and it would be a waste of money to buy coupons for them ? What about "usual" drinks ?

You can get a "refill" in the souvenir cup for $1 cheaper if you prefer to go that route. Not sure what the standard cup versus the souvenir cup. Also unsure if there may be a difference in strength between the two as well. I know those in the souvenir cup were GOOD.

Yeah, the Funship. That was a gooood drink. Sometimes I'd tell them it was a little weak and they'd give me a little splash of rum to spice it up.

I proved to all with me on the last cruise that the drink of the day big colored plastic cup holds exactly as much as the regular 3.95 clear plastic cup.
