Just a quick note, my wife gets a soda package every cruise. I doubt she drinks enough to break even, but it makes life much easier. In the grand scheme of things it is pretty cheap if you are a soda drinker. She drinks a lot of Club Soda in lieu of bar drinks. It is way easier to simply show the card and ask for a drink than go through the hassle of signing, etc. for a soda. Also it's nice around the pool deck. Saves me leg work too because if she wants a soda and I want a beer, she needs to order hers so she gets mine too. For a lazy guy like me that, alone, is worth the card.
