Default Alcoholic drink card for only part of the trip?

When one signs up for this option, can I select that it only be valid for 2 days out of the 6 that I travel? I will be on the Carnival Breeze next winter. I cannot drink that much every day, just a few probably. Thanks.

You must purchase it for the remaining days of the cruise. Sometimes they will let you buy 1 or 2 days into the cruise usually only on long cruises though. So if you sailed 15 days you could buy on day 3 but still need to pay for last 12 days.

Aerospace has stated it well.

On a 7-night cruise like yours, you are required to buy it for the entire trip - no option on that one. I do think it's dumb that they give the cost per day when you have to buy it for all 7 days - would make more sense to simply provide the cost for the trip!

But was stated, on the longer cruises, they will usually sell them not just on the first day as they do on the shorter cruises, but also for the first few days (at a per day reduced rate).

I agree about the 'drinking that much each day'. I can usually do my fair share of drinking, but when you figure the cost for the entire trip, I would have a hard time making it worth it. Definitely would encourage me to do ALOT of drinking!
