The Fountain Funpass does not include bottles of water. It also doesn't allow you to get cans or bottles of soda, although the glass of soda you get per serving comes from a can. They just won't give you more than a standard bar glass at a time. You can get juice though. My son likes the Carnival bar fruit punch and they make it for him and serve it on the Fountain Funpass.

There is always a variety of tea bags and hot water available in the buffet area. This is 24/7, and included in your cruise fare.

There should be plenty of free water dispensers near the buffets....we also drank the tap water with no problems.

Hi kenny-edinburgh, welcome to Cruise-Chat. Unless you drink a good amount of soda each day, there is no need to purchase the card. There are plenty of drinks available for free. The water on board ship is probably more pure than any bottled water you can purchase. You might want to purchase a couple of bottles to refill with water for shore excursions. The water in the buffet area works well for this. I've never had a problem finding hot/ice tea on board. Best wishes for a fantastic cruise, and once again, welcome aboard!

The bartenders will also give you a glass of water with ice for no charge. Sometimes they will set out pitchers of ice water and glasses for self-service.

Congratulations on your anniversary, and best wishes for your cruise! My last cruise was on the Legend and loved the ship. I wouldn't bother with the Fountain Fun Pass (soda card) either, unless you drink alot of soda.
