drink card
How do I go about buying a drink card? Do I purchase now online or when we get on the boat? Is there such thing as a sodacard $12 a day for any soft drinks? Our boat leaves in 16 days-first time cruise-can't wait!! :D

Yes there is. And if you enjoy drinking soda you should get it. For me I drink more bottled water and Ice Tea. Ice tea is free and bottled water is not included on the Soda Card. Have a great cruise!

I did buy the soad card but really the total cost of it for the 4 days did not constitute the price I paid. I ended up drinking more of their fruit punch and guava juice than the pop. So, weigh your options of the drink card. Try the drinks in the buffet areas to see if you do enjoy them over the soda. I will say that each time I did get a soda, it was not ratioed with the water, co2, and syrup....not very fizzy like you get from your local 7 Eleven.

I prepaid for a soda card before we went on the miracle 9/14. I wanted that as we had purchased a bottle of alcohol from the bon voyage dept. I was not able to get this from any of the bars I had to go to the Cafe international in order to get it. The pain part was they put a note in our cabin calling it the fountain something or another and none of the employees knew what the heck I was talking about. Personally for me, next time I need one, I'm waiting until we board so I can get it anywhere. But definitely way out the cost so you know how many sodas you need to drink to break even. Ours was 9 day/8 night which really means 8 full days divided by what I believe was $58 total (I'd have to check my credit card statement) So that's 7.25 a day and I want to say soda was around $2 each. Also another FYI, last full day on board a man walked up to the bar we were at and purchased a soda card for the day. So that's another option.

its 6 a day plus the tip they add to all drinks

some ships they only have cans so the taste is fine if you are bringing on your own alcohol and need coke to mix it works out great.
