I like using my old (1998) Carnival mug. We take them on every cruise.

It is nice to have a TOP on a drink...especially when I am in karaoke by myself and can't watch my drink every second!!

(Ladies, a good tip to consider.)

Can you buy the Bar Credit coupons for yourself ahead of time? Is there a limit? It seems cheaper to use them if you don't mind carrying them around?

You can get them ahead of time - in fact I think you have to if you want them. There is no limit to the number of coupons you buy. The coupons have a maximum value so it isn't as though you can get a $10 drink for a coupon alone. I believe they are good for drinks up to $5.25 including tip. Anything over that you have to pay with your cruise card unless the bartender is feeling charitable. Anything less than the maximum value and you don't get a refund of the difference, so you lose money. In other words if you order a beer that costs $3.25 you just lost $2.

It is a hassle to carry them around. You also can't turn unused ones in for a refund. Once you buy them you are stuck with them. You are on a cruise vacation, so why rummage around for a coupon when you want a drink?

The coupons are supposed to be a gift option and not a primary method of buying drinks by the people on a cruise.

Yes, as Dave noted you can order them for yourself and they will be waiting in your cabin. I have only used them when received as a gift. I ordered some yesterday for some friends. I wouldn't buy them for self use though.
