I remember reading somewhere that Celebrity has an inexpensive beverage card for soft drinks only that can be purchased on board. Can someone confirm this? Also, is it for unlimited soft drinks during the cruise and how much does the card cost? Thanks.
We were on the Millennium in Dec. and for a 7 day cruise they wanted $40. for the card. Thats a lot of soda. And from what others have said it isn't from cans, but from the tap and isn't as good. So it's up to you. Also there si no sharing of cards, you have to buy one for each person.
I just came back from Constellation and I think the card was about $5-6/day and you had to pay for the whole week (maybe around $40). We were going to 5 different ports over 7 days, so it didn't make sense to get since we'd be off the ship for much of the cruise. I did a cruise to nowhere last year where it made more sense.
It's pretty easy to find cans or bottles of soda in port and just bring them onboard and keep them in your mini-bar. Some embarkation ports even have stores nearby where you can just buy a 6 or 12 pack right before boarding.
Great deal on the soda, I am glad I purchased it. They also give you this plastic bottle/cooler and you can use that anywhere. I used that by the pool most of the day. Well worth the money if you drink at least 2 soda's a day. I also filled it up with water and iced tea but the pool.
