Yeah, but isn't there an ice machine? When we made our cruise arrangements with Jean she STRONGLY recommended bringing our own soda, etc. I STRONGLY agreed with her when I found out how much ($35.00!) [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] the travel mugs are each [img]graemlins/ukid.gif[/img] !
Wish I could bring a coffee maker but I don't suppose it's a good idea due to voltage?.....Anyone can answer that one for me?
The drink coolers are really small. You can't even fit a whole six pack in there. But your room steward will be more than happy to keep your ice bucket filled or even fill your second sink (if you are in a room with a split bath) with ice.
You are not supposed to bring a coffee maker with you but there is always room service! [img]graemlins/love.gif[/img] If you need coffee the minute you get up, order it the night before. They come in a thermal carafe so it should still be warm-ish in the morning.
The cruise mugs vary in price, depending upon the length of the voyage. The price for the 7-day was so high, I just passed it by (something over $60). As soft drinks are already complimentary with your meals (and there are soooo many meals), I really couldn't see how I'd get my money's worth, although your consumption patterns may vary.
Coffee and tea drinkers have another free alternative - there's a 24-hour, complimentary hot beverage station up on Deck 9, aft.
We're going on the 7 day Eastern Caribbean Cruise. Jean is making all our arrangements for land and sea. I asked her the cost of the travel mug and was told $35.00 (EACH). It's cheaper to bring our own drinks on-board.
Then, I started thinking about it and wondered about coffee. I have cut my java consumption drastically ; but I need at least A cup of coffee to get going in the morning.....Now I know I'll be fine [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] !
We are fortunate in that we live within driving distance. If anyone else will be sailing on the Magic's Eastern Caribbean cruise November 30th and wants us to bring soda down so you don't have to drag it on the plane or find time before checking on the cruise write me.....
A word on the varying cost of the refillable mugs: They are priced at $5/day. 7-day cruise mugs are indeed $35. For a 4-day cruise, you pay $20, and for a 3-day cruise, $15.
For me, they are worth the price, because I guzzle soda all day long. Considering the price of on-board (non-meal) drinks, I figure I'll get more than my $5-worth each day. (A little mug-sharing can help, too!)
They're not very big..and I've heard that you can't bring large hard side coolers anymore (is this true?)
But there are some really nice soft coolers around that could double as a carry-on.
and the room steward will keep it filled with ice for you.
The nice drink station is open 24 hrs a day and you can even get cold milk there..free. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]
Ice tea (all kinds of teas) is easily made with hot tea over ice,but the cups are small coffee size..so a resort mug works well for that (if you're coming from a resort.)
There is ice water,too..to fill up your water bottles.Water on board is good.
Interesting that bottled water is $1.50 on the ship and $2.50 at WDW!
About the only drink I bought was the alcohol free Konk Kooler at Castaway Cay..WAY yummy!
He Deb are you going to be on the 11/30 Eastern Cruise?...... I [img]graemlins/love.gif[/img] your suggestion...except we are about four hours from the World; so I guess that'd be about five from Port Canaveral? DH's face would be: [img]graemlins/ukid.gif[/img] or [img]graemlins/achoo.gif[/img] ...
