keeping drinks cold
We are going on the Sovereign next spring. I understand they don't have mini fridges in the cabins we will be in (deck 9). We will be bringing some beer and pop. Will the cabin steward supply us with ice? Should we bring some type of collapsible cooler to keep it all in? Any ideas for what others have done would be appreciated! Thanks!

Re: keeping drinks cold
The ice bucket in your room will be filled by the Room Steward, I think twice a day...on Carnival there is a room on every floor, I believe, that has an ice machine. My daughter informed the Room Steward that they used a lot of ice and he put a small plastic cooler in her room for the week and he kept it filled up with ice.

On the ninth deck you may have a fridge,it is the lower decks that dont.But I would give RCCL and ask it they do.
BTW you will have to try to sneak the beer on,the soda you can take on but they may take the beer.

I have been on Deck 9 3 times counting next week. My steward brought me a large cooler and kept it full of ice. I wouldn't count on that though. That is why I now use this cooler and use it as a carryone with my docs , camera, ect.... Then put my beer in it once my luggage arrives.

OK Dave - How much beer can you fit in your luggage? My husband and BOL love their Labatt's. Let me know if all that beer makes it past them. I have 11 months to plan, so...Also my parents are booked into the Royal Suite. They will most definitely have a fridge, but I don't want to bug them at strange times. Of course, it will be handy for when we hang out on their balcony!

Get your room steward to bring the bucket used for champagne and ask him to keep ice each time he is in room.It will hold at least 4 beers at any time much cooler than any fridge they have.
