If you are asking is there a place to store those items before your stateroom is ready, the answer is NO. So, I guess the real answer to your question is "tote it around with you till the stateroom is ready".

If sailing from Galveston I usually take several diet cokes. Both in checked and carry-on.

We usually find a spot on Lido Deck, and one of us stays with the carry on's, while the other grabs the chow. After eating, we usually just "hang out" there with the stuff we carried on, until 1:30 or so when we can drop all the "stuff" off at the cabin. We've sailed enough that we've already seen most of the ships, and aren't that interested in carrying all the stuff around to explore.
I have allways just checked in one carry on bag which shows up at my room with my other luggage it weighs around 50 pounds but it allways shows up wiyh no problem. I bring 1 - 12 pack of sprite zero and 8 - 1 liter bottles of
Sam's club (Wal-mart) peach flavored water. Plus I tip the guy who has to lift it up onto the big cart full of luggage. You really don't have to lug that bag all over the ship. Have a great cruise. Ed
Checking your carry on can be the answer for some people. I personally would not find that to be the way for me. I have a c-pap machine which I would never give to baggage handlers. I also carry my meds and my camera in my carry on. Carrying all this when I travel alone is challenging. I have no one to watch it while I get my lunch. Reluctant to let my c-pap and carry on out of my sight when I go for lunch is also another problem. I usually have to take that through the buffet line with me.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
I bring beverages with me on every sailing. After arriving at the destination.I repack and repurpose a small carry on suitcase and fill it with water at the port., its big enough to hold 12-14 1.5liters of water. Then give the suitcase to the people on the baggage handlers. The water makes it back to the room, and I dont have to carry it.
We bring our carryon beverages in a small wheely suitcase that we use for after the cruise for either purchased liquor in ports or souvenirs. It isn't a problem for us to wheel this around.
I also bring another wheely to use for meds, a cpap machine and our 2 bottles of wine. That one is really small, so other than the wine, the same things are packed in it. I am sure there are many inventive ways to pack what you want.
We we cruised on the Conquest out of Galveston I brought a 12 pack of soda with me. I taped a luggage tag to it and check it in at curbside with my bags. It showed up in my room with my luggage. No problem.
