The last Carnival cruise Oct 2009 there were a number of passengers that had unlimited drink cards for the bar. I was told it cost $40 per day. They were cruising as a group and were really getting their money worth. Don't think they ever got off the ship the whole 8 days.
I have not heard of this. There is the soda card but this is the first time I have seen a drink card. At $40 a day and considering a drink can run $7 to $8 each, it wouldn't take but 5 drinks to make that pay off. I don't drink that much every day but I am sure there are people that could (or would if they had already paid that much)
I wonder if it was something special Carnival arranged with their group?

I don't know about Carnival, but I see that Celebrity has beverage packages - I looked in particular at the beer package for our cruise but decided we wouldn't be drinking enough to get out monies worth
