Default Beverage tips

Hi!

When you buy a soda fountain card on Carnival cruises (who much are they?) is there a tip added to your acount when you get each soda?

Why pay for something all fizzy, when you can have the real thing. I always pack my own cans, cool them off in the ice bucket. The space of the cans, is then used for what I buy. I have done this for the last 3 cruises and will for the next one in May, without any open cans spilling in my things.

I'm with you Coke Fan. I did this on my last my cruise. Only I went a step further - I also carried bottled water. Since my family was in three different cabins and drink a lot water. My parents thought that I was crazy and 2nd day on the trip, they were glad that I did. I put the soda and water in my carry on that I wheeled onto the ship. I also had chips for my son to eat in the cabin and at port.

Hi Howard,
Yes, when you purchase a soda, or any drink purchase, with your sign/sail card a 15% tip is automatically added to you bill, you will see it when you sign for it.
