Default Drink of the Day List?

I was curious if, like the menus, the DODs are standard across ships and itineraries. Does anyone know what specific drinks of the day I can expect a 7-day on Conquest? Thanks!

I think it would be the funship special... I think thats the drink of the day on carnival 1st day for all cruises.. I could be wrong though.... Just an alcoholic educated guess... LOL

I don't know if there are specific drinks according to a set schedule. I think that would be unlikely though, given that there are quite a few of them in total (more than the length of even a long cruise). I've got the official drink recipe guide at home, which I bought onboard in 2007. And from memory there were at least 20 Carnival specialty recipes.

I just got off the 7 day Ecstacy cruise. I will have to look at my capers. Hopefully someone will come through before then.

I seem to remember the same drinks over the years, but not sure if there is a schedule.
Two drinks I remember are the Funship Special and Goombay Smash. I think one was the Mexican Mama. What are the others?

Default drink question

Does anyone know what kind of drink this was that they served at the past guest parties? It tasted more like a fruit punch. Not even sure if there was alcohol in it. I did not taste any,but that does not mean it did not have any. It had a sweet taste to it and was reddish in color. Would love to know what it was. It was great.

Much like McDonald's, Carnival strives to make everything uniform fleet wide, even to the point of having pictures of the plated food in the kitchen....

Someone had asked me this question before, and I copied down this list of DOD from the cruise ~~!!~~

Fun Ship Special
Caribbean Breeze
Goombay Smash
Mexican Mama
Island Delight
Blue Margarita
Yellow Bird



I have Carnival's drink book somewhere if you want the ingrindents...

...You can ask for any drink to be put into the whale tail or monkey head. Of course it will cost extra for the cute cups.



Something I like....the bars on the lido deck, by the pool have the 'icy' machines and you can ask for your DOD to be mixed with the crushed ice.

Thanks for the tip. I didn't know you could request the crushed ice.
