Meaning I save money comparing it to not getting the soda thingy and getting charged for booze and soda each time? Or do they not charge extra for mixers with booze?

    This is what I've heard ppl say but I would call their 1-800 to confirm. Could save yerself a lot if ya plan to drink lots of mixed drinks
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    From what I (barely) recall from looking at the receipts from last cruise, if you have the soda package and order a rum and coke, your receipt just shows as a shot of rum.

    The receipt may have shown the same thing if you didn't have the soda package, so it's a good idea to call the number to be sure.

    I went ahead and got the pop package again. If nothin else I get another sturdy cup with a lid.

    This answers it right here from the RC FAQs:

    Q: What is the Fountain Soda package?

    A: The fountain soda package entitles you to unlimited refills at any of our bars or lounges, Windjammer Café, Main Dining Room and our private destinations. A complimentary Coca-Cola® souvenir cup is included as part of every fountain soda package. The cost of a fountain soda package is determined by the length of your stay, with an average daily cost of $6.50 for adults and $4.50 for children* plus gratuity. (*Child prices available for kids under 18.) The fountain soda package is sold for the entire length of the cruise vacation only. Only fountain soda is offered with the soda packages. The mini bar sodas are not included in the package and carry a separate charge.


    So sounds like mixers are just charged as part of the alcoholic drink and you would pay the same price regardless of having the soda package or not. Looks like I'm skipping the soda package

    I could be wrong but I think that just refers to the canned sodas sild/used by the little bars they set up ar varios points like outside the Chorus Line. My guess is all the bars with sida canister/hose setups woyld be included. Maybe call the 1-800 to confirm?

    i have no idea how you came to this conclusion. mini-bar does not equal mixed drinks. fountain sodas ARE used at the "maxi" bar.
