Beverages On Board Royal Caribbean

The unlimited soda package will take you from the first day to the last night on board.
If you find it a chore to carry the water bottle, you can leave the bottle in your stateroom. Just flash your seapass showing the red “cola” sticker and the bar attendant will serve you a cup of your favorite soda.
Just in case you are curious, one glass of soda is sold at USD 1.95 (subject to 15% service charge).You can just buy one soda package and share it with your family. Don’t forget that the package is cheaper for child
Of course, if you are not a soda lover, then skip this soda beverage and go for something healthier!

For those who want hassle free water, you can order the Evian water packages. Each Evian bottle is sold at USD 3.95, subjected to 15% service charge.
