Well the fridge has drinks in it, but you have to pay for it.

It is only suppose to be for one person, but if the person that bought it goes up and gets the other person a drink, thats the only way you can do it for two people.

The soda card is good for sodas and different juices.

The soda card is suppose to be only for 1 person whose name is on the back of it, however they will only allow you 1 soda at a time with the card. You can send another person up to the bar with the card to get another soda because they never look at the name on the card. My whole family has shared 1 soda card but it is inconvient. They don't stop you bringing soda onto the ship either. I will buy bottles of pop at the ports and bring them on the ship. You always have ice in your room. I have seen people getting on the ship in Miami carrying 12 packs of soda. They don't serve pepsi so you can get away with it.

Yeah can bring as much as you want on. I am sure if you are bringing pepsi on they will be easier on you becuase they don't serve it.

It is only for one person. I've heard if you want a few hours after the ship debarks you don't have to pay sales tax on it. It would be worth looking into.

Probably another dumb question, but I too am a first timer. Is there ice available in the rooms? We are sailing Sept 09 on the Spirit to Hawaii and my hubby and I don't drink pop, but Iced tea. I wanted to bring a tin or so of powdered to make up in the room. The ice would make it alot better

The Soda card is for Unlimited Fountain Drinks per person only. Room service and drinks in the room excluded. Each person must have their own card.

On the question of ice in the room, simply request your steward to bring you some.

I thought I read somewhere here that you get juice or soda for the drink card. Is this true and if so is it available all the time, or just at certain times of the day

Did you rationalize this based on something? Perhaps like the what you think the profits are for sodas at sea.

If you did then why not pay for one photo and have the rest of your family take one as well... Just sayin'

Really it is wrong to share an unlimited soda card because you are already receiving a significantly reduced cost and the fact of the matter is if everyone did that not only would they discontinue it, but they may be forced to shut down other programs as well because they do not have enough funding. Simply put, if your too cheap to buy a soda card for each person, how can you justify the cost of the cruise in your own mind?

Are you serious, not enough funding! These companies are making bank, are they offering "cheap" rates, no!
Too cheap to buy a soda card, people are trying to cut some costs, even if they think they're saving 20, 30 bucks, people want to cut the total expense of their trip.
Take it easy, we're all trying to have fun on our cruise's without feeling nickel and dimed.

I believe in honesty. Simple as that. If I had a family and was taking them on board, I would not feel right about being dishonest about that.
