I used the soda car and let my girlfriend use it as well. We bought 1 card and shared it. You just flash it at the bartender and he'd bring a drink. He never asked to see id or even read the name on it apparently.

And booze, the old food colored rum and vodka worked beautifully ! Get the plastic mouthwash bottles, wash em good, dump in your clear liquor of choice and add in half a teaspoon of the food coloring. Mixing the green and blue makes and exact scope look . You save a ton of cash adding this to your soda the whole time.

Yea, easglesrlife....it's people like you braking all the rules that causes EVERYONE to be subjected to search. Like at all the airports today...no liquid or gel..not even toothpaste or deoderant. Come on and just obey the rules for EVERYONE's safety.

Exactly Rodney- Can you imaging what the xray screener is going to do after today when your luggage full of liquid is going through the X-RAY? Good luck seeing that bag again...

Unless you are driving, the bottles in the luggage is no longer worth any savings you may get from bringing your own. It won;t be long before the cruise lines security will use this as an excuse to not let any liquid on board.

Depends on the current Dr. Scholls sales to shoe bomber demographic numbers..

I just can imagine the insanity in the airports today when people were being told they would have to check their electronics and "liquids"... "Excuse me Mr. Security guard but does it count if my bladder is full from standing in line for 2 hours???"

We just got back from our cruise...We took a 12 pack of coke and 12 bottles of water in plain site when checking in. Since the ice bucket in our room was refilled twice a day, this worked out well whenever we were in our cabin. We didn't purchase the soda card and were quite satisfied with the coffee, juices, etc. that were offered.

Judy, Thanks for posting that. You saved some money, plus had the convenience of not having to go to a bar everytime you want a soda/pop or pay double or more for a bottle of water. Unfortuneatly only drive to port people can usually do this. You almost saved enough to cover them gouging $75 to park your car.

Hope you had a great cruise,

IslandCruz

Ok... let me catch you up here. Waterboy was just a joke referring to your screenname, H20.

I thought in your original post, you said you got all the pop you wanted... "I never had a problem getting any number of sodas".

Now you are saying that you had to go back and forth just like the rest of us... "When I am done with the soda I am drinking I get another."

Why don't they just give out cans of full pop?
Wouldn't that be easier? I think it would be. I could take the can down to my room and put as much or as little ice in my own cup, and drink it how I please. As opposed to going up a few decks just to get some pop.

Ok Hermy, I questioned your use of "waterboy" because I thought it funny you assume I am male. I am not. When I get sodas I ask for light on the ice or no ice since I don't like my drinks watered down. And I did take the soda to my cabin and it was sufficient while I was there until I left my cabin again for a show or whatever. I only bought one soda from the "fridge" while I was on the cruise. I guess some people drink more soda than others.

Because full cans are for those who pay the full price and don't get the soda card. Can you imagine the uproar if soda card holders were getting the same thing as non-card users, for a lesser price? This would lead just about everyone to get soda cards - and then what's the point in them?

It used to be bar fountain soft drinks only and the cans were reserved for those buying by the drink. Carnival got away from using the fountain syrup setup and hence the soda card drinks being poured from cans.
