I booked a Cruise for myparents and daughter, It will be their first time.
It's a surprise ,I can't sleep at night, to excited.
I want to pay for everything, I already paid for the cruise but what about the other things? I know that the drinks cost money, so what is the coke card? any suggestion will be more tham welcome.
The Cruise will sail from Vancouver to Whittier, Princess Diamond.
The Coke card is a card that allows you to pay a flat fee for unlimited soda, with kids this can be a good option but make sure to see what the cost per pop is on the ship and if your kids will be drinking enough to validate purchasing the card.

The soda card can only be purchased once on board. It comes with an insulated Coke mug since they only sell Coke products. Just a few weeks ago on the Sapphire Princess it was $27.50/week. I think that is better than other cruise lines. You can look at Princess' website for other "gifts" if you want to buy them more. How nice of you, they will be proud.

it is a good idea if the math works for you.
The average cost for a soda on the the ship is around $2.50 $2.75.
The soda card cost $27.50 - that would mean that the card pays for itself after 10 sodas. That averages out to less than 2 sodas per day for a 7 day cruise.
