Default soda cards

Does Ecstasy have soda cards and how much are they? Wondering whether to bring Diet DP in my luggage. Would love to avoid it. Leaving today!

All the ships sell soda cards. Carnival also offers soda coupons for sale for people who want to buy them ahead of time. They are on the gift section of their web site.I usually just put a 12 pack in the suitcase along with a bunch of water bottles and if I don't finish it my seward is happy to take the new leftovers off my hands.

I prefer ice tea, and the ice tea they serve on board is just plain nasty. Very chemical tasting. I bring a large, insulated, refillable water bottle, like you would use at the gym. Make some 'fresh' ice tea in the morning with tea bags and I'm ready to go.

how do the soda cards work. do you get a can and a glass like if you bought it? or do they bring you a prepoured glass of soda? can you use them all over the ship, at dinner, at the shows, in your room etc ?

If I recall (I should know because I buy them)... I think they charge about $7/day for the soda card.

They only give you glasses, not cans. Though Carnival only uses canned soda, not fountain style. So it's kind of odd.

If you buy a soda card, you can take a big sports cup with you, and they'll fill that instead of the glasses.

You can use the cards anywhere on the ship EXCEPT for room service. Because room service only delivers cans, and they charge you for those.

I think cans are sold for @ $1.75, so depending on how much soda you drink, you can determine the value to you.

With what kuki's saying [if you get the card] order the room service and if you feel up to it go to the closes bar get drinks and head back!

But i'm energetic so it's easy for me to pop up and got get people sodas..lol when i'm on the boat i always have to have a drink with me.. thats how i make use out of the card 8)

What other drinks are free on the ship? We are big ice tea drinkers and after someone saying it is nasty I doubt I will like it.
Do they serve sodas at dinner?
