Default Drinks or soda at Dinner?

Do you get any drinks at dinner for free? Water or soda? Probably not wine or liquor. Just wondering if I have to pay for soda for the kids at dinner?

Milk, juice and water, tea, coffee, capuccinos are free at dinner. There is a charge for sodas even for the kids.

Sodas and alcohol cost, but are resonable.

If your kids are soda drinkers, check with your cruise line and see if they offer soda cards. I know that Carnival offers "Fountain Fun Cards". You pay a flat rate per child and they get a card for unlimited fountain drinks, even at dinner in the dining room. We carry lanyards to put the cards on so they don't get lost and are readily available for that soda as you walk along the decks. For us that is much cheaper than buying a can of soda at almost $2 each.

Happy cruising!

Default Soda Cost

Most cruise lines we have sailed offer soda and wine cards. These are honored at lunch and dinner. Otherwise soda and wine are both considered bar drinks and you will be charged.
