I do think that this 15% gratuity is a little unfair when you consider that it is you going to the bar, to get your own soda....no waiter taking it back to where you are sitting. A service charge is for service but it seems to me you ( the buyer ) is doing most of the service.For the bar staff who come round and take your order and bring it to you then yes, they are providing a service and I'm happy

Waiters will get the sodas for you. You don't have to go to the bar.

Soda cards should only have a 10% service charge.

Sorry I hit send too early and made a double post but still maintain a 10% service charge is fairer as many go to the bar themselves

And as I said, you don't have to go to the bar. Waiters will get sodas for those with the soda stamp on their card.

This POP card is great. We purchase it on every cruise and we have no problems getting a pop from any bartendars. We drink around 7 to 8 glasses per day and this way we can keep one glass beside our bed at night in case we need a drink.

Are you saying you only buy one card & both share it ?
