Soda package includes fountain soda - so not from tins. The package costs $4pd for under 17 and $6pd for adults plus 15% gratuity. You have to buy the package for the entire length of the cruise. To buy an individual tin of coke costs $2.01 incl the 15% gratuity, You can now do the math.

Americans call fizzy drinks soda.....the only drinks within this package are soft drinks like coke/lemonade/orangeade etc. Not sure how much individually, but def works out cheapest option .

It is well worth buying the soda package. Depending on which bar you get the drink from some of the drinks are given in cans. We just bought one for our son and I often used to use it, so it was definetly worth while. You move from one bar to the other and so the bar tenders do not know that you got a drink in the last bar.

In this day and age it is a sad problem for basic hygiene!It is not something you like to talk about, but were a bunch of germ-laden conveyors of infectious diseases.
