mgades - If I am not mistaken, iced tea, coffee, juice and lemonade are all free...no charge and you don't need any card for them.

FREE IS GOOD!

Yes, you can have all the ice tea you can handle without charge or a card. So, you can save $$$ if you can drink tea instead of soda (At least on CCL you can sub the word "Lemonade" in for tea in the above comment)

I bought the Soda card last year on the ship and it was worth it for me. I'm not a drinker, so coke it was. I did have a Bahama Mama, and I must say, it was pretty tasty

Well I drink more than 3 sodas during the day is the CARIBBEAN!!! IS HOT YOU KNOW!!!
Believe me is better to get your soda card the first day why later for just a few dollars?
Remember the first day is the day you make any arrangement then you enjoy your cruise so for me, I try to do everything the first day then is just fun ship… and yes the soda card is worth the money. But I don’t know I don’t like diet pepsi I like real pepsi better

Okay Okaaaaaaay. Maybe I will have to purchase a soda card the day I get to the ship. I just did not see how my 2nd day reasoning was so flawed.
Thank you cruise-chatters for making me see the errors of my way.

I read on another board that it is a good idea to wait to purchase your soda card until the boat has left the port and is far enough out to sea that the Duty Free Shops have opened. At this point you will not be charged tax on the purchase of the soda card.

I have no personal knowledge if this is indeed correct...but this is may be the reason you remember reading.

Diana - the adult soda card is $38.50 and the child one is $28.50
