    Water and Juice is free, coffee is too with breakfast I think. Soda cost money, but there is an unlimited package.

    There are machines here and there (basically in the restaurants) where you can have free water - it is not bottled but it tastes and feels perfectly fine - and coffee. And in the buffet restaurants, you can jump in any time (while they're open) and get as many drinks as you want (they have water and some sort of flavoured non-alcoholic drink which tastes pretty good, as well as orange juice and stuff like that).

    Personally I've never understood the need to buy bottled water, but hey, to each his own.

    There's a bar in every concert venue on broad. :beerwink:
    The one on the back of the ice rink had some nice beers (limited amounts) like Rogue Dead Guy Ale, Stone IPA and Mission IPA. Obviously they ran out of those after the second day or so.

    Yeah, I was really surprised too. They didn't have those beers listed anywhere and they weren't available anywhere else.

    Water is free, along with some juice and lemonade service, available at all restaurants.
    Royal Caribbean will offer two non-alcoholic drink packages for us; the less-expensive one is about $10-11/day and includes sodas, etc. (A bar-service soda will cost about $3 after mandatory tip, so it's not a bad deal.) Those packages will become available for advance purchase a few weeks before the cruise after UMC forwards our info over to Royal and the cruise-line loads it in.

    I forget who told me, but that was a mistake. The case was supposed to be set aside for a different trip I believe and they accidentally opened it. Was nice while it lasted though. :lol: The ice rink bar and the irish pub did have the best beer selection.
    I should get around to updating my signature

    Some tipping will usually allow you to get any beer they offer anywhere on the ship.
    Sadly because of that I never checked the Ice Rink bar at the back of the stage and thus never found out about those special ones :shock:

    Not sure if I posted this before, but there is a staff bar onbroad which serves beer for about a buck. You need to have a staff buddy at a 1:1 ratio to get in though. Worth getting to know/hitting on certain staff

    My GF and I consistently average about $300 each, every time we've gone. I drink more, she drinks less but gets more merch.

    Hint: boobs. Works for all genres. Us guys have more trouble. Generally I try to go by the main two rules:
    -be attractive
    -don't be unattractive
