Haven't been on for a while but going on a back to back in May on Fascination. I tried to buy drink tickets like we did as recently as January on Ecstasy. I see Bar Cash on the Carnival site where you have to pick the amount you think you will drink and it is non-refundable. When did they make the change? We used to be able to use unused tickets from one cruise to the next. Have I missed a major change in policy?
Thanks for your input>
I felt like I got a little attitude from a couple of servers when I got used the little drink tickets last year. Don't know if they cause them more work or reduce their tips. Maybe they are valued at the bottom of the range.
I suppose with the bar cash program you don't have to worry about whether the beverage falls into the proper prince range. It could apply to a bucket of beers as easily as a bottle of wine.

Thanks for the info. I am guessing the 15% gratuity is taken off the cash card unlike the tickets. I always find a good bartender and tip them $20 the first night. I love the difference it makes in service.
