Default I need to ask this question again, buying beer on a Carnival

I know...I know....It's me again and it's this question again.

What I want to know is:
How many beers are in a bucket and how many drink tickets to buy the bucket?

I have the Carnival beverage menu, so I know how much for one beer.

Thanks again...

Darlene

in May the buckets of beer (which is a 4 pack, not a six-back) ranged from 14.50 to 16.50 plus tip (15%); it was a savings of a couple of bucks which add up in the long run. IMHO; buy the bucket when at the pool or at the beginning of the production shows

Thank you Martha:
My brother is going with us in May and he usually drinks beer. I was telling him to buy the drink coupons and I needed to know how much the bucket cost and how many were in it. You have answered my question.

Thanks again
Darlene

Darlene,
Sometimes they have the buy 4 get 1 free offer in those buckets shaped like football helmets.

Captain:
Are these on all Carnival ships? Do you have to use the drink coupons to get this deal or can you use the Sail and Sign card also?

Thank you
Darlene

Darlene,
I have seen that deal on all the Carnival ships I have been on but I do not know if it is on ALL the Carnival ships, although I see no logic or reason why it wouldn't be on all the ships. But ya never know!

You definitely can get the buy 4 get 1 free deal with your S&S card, but in all honesty, I do no not know if you would be able to use the drink coupons for that. I've never purchased drink coupons. Maybe someone else will chime in who knows the answer to that part of your question.

You have been a big help anyway, as usual. Just to know that you can use your Sail and sign and get this deal is a big help. The Valor is the ship we will be on and I see no reason that this won't be the case on that ship if it is on the others.

Thanks
Darlene

No problem, Darlene, you are welcome, always glad to help when I can.

Keep in mind that the S&S card is the key to everything on the ship. You can charge to your heart's delight using the S&S card.

I just got off the Valor and a bucket was a little under $20. It saved about $2 to buy the bucket. Individually beer is $4.75 plus the auto gratuity of 15%.

Regards,
Thomas

Thomas:
I am pleased to hear from another person who has cruised on the Valor. Thank you for you information.

Were there 4 beers in the bucket? Our Vacation Planner wasn't sure if there were 4 or 5, that is why I am asking.

How was the ship? I know that should be a whole new subject. I just wanted to know what you thought? We have cabins in the Aft of the ship, on the Verandah deck.

Once again, Thank you

Darlene
