Default Soft drinks other than soda

I have 2 kids and we are not soda drinkers. I haven't been able to figure out what other soft drink options are usually available (we're sailing on the Triumph) and which ones you have to pay for. I'm trying to decide if I need to bring some options for my kids (juice, propel, vitamin water, etc.) Or are drinks like these available for purchase somewhwere on the ship?

It seems like there is no charge for ship's water (dispensed). What else is available at mealtimes for no charge? Is there ice tea, or lemonade, or fruit punch and is there a charge for these? I realize that you pay separately for "fancy drinks" (virgin daiquiri) and sodas. And I suppose that if I ask for a "club soda with lime" that is also considered a soda.

Does anyone know if the Triumph offers cranberry juice? My daughter and I like water with a splash of cranberry in it, but is this something we will probably pay extra for? We're hoping for hot weather, so I'd like to know that I can offer my kids something other than water, and whether I will have to buy it or bring it, or if they just have it. Thanks for any info on this!

Hi there..

You can get coffee, tea, lemonade, juice and milk for free all day. They have water dispensing where you get the ice tea as well. The bottled water in the cabin is not free.

Most mornings, they have cranberry juice (unless they've run out). I have never looked for it any other time of day.

Juice is served 24 hours a day in at least one or two locations. There was a mix of juices from cranberry, apple, orange, fruit punch, passionfruit guava, and lemonade. Apple and orange were the common juices, but the others rotated. I looooved the fruit punch and passion fruit guava juice.

Okay, are you putting the link in your signature? That was the mistake I was making. I was inserting into my message. *smile*

Default Try a soda card

Hi. I've been on 3 Carnival Cruises and they sell a soda card. Usually a couple of dollars a day. Well worth it if you are a soda drinker. However, it doesn't cover bottled water. They usually have Ice Tea, Lemonade and other juices at the Lido Buffet. Depending on your preference you may want to bring your favorite on board. I purchased the beverage card and since I mostly drink bottled water and Ice Tea I felt it was a waste.
