They definitely have both iced tea and lemonade - at least they did when I went. My drink of choice at the pool is what's known as an Arnold Palmer - half iced-tea and half lemonade. After I asked for it the first time, I couldn't sit down at the pool without them bringing me one!
Just returned from the 7 day, dep 21/4/12 cruise (our 1st ever cruise). Diet CC (and Bud Light) in the fridge. I can't stand Diet CC and thanks to this very helpful forum I thought I would test the many suggestions that PG staff go above and beyond. Before departure I asked our "stewardess" (quoting PG's term), the very helpful Mariethel, if the Diet CC could be replaced by CC Zero. She said she would try and prior to departure it had been done. Interestingly, for the rest of the cruise, I couldn't obtain it from any of the restaurants or bars; they all said they only had Diet CC. I had to go back to our cabin to obtain it, with Mariethel replensihing whatever I consumed. It was as if we had our own stash! I wondered if someone from PG had dashed off the ship to get a carton just before departure?!
do they have sparkling water or just soda water? thanks!

Put the request through your TA in advance.
When you get on board ask your stewardess if she can get it for you. They will likely dash off somewhere and get it for you.
If it doesn work out - at least you tried.
My gosh it's hard to imagine them being that wonderful and not working for tips...Emdee I will certainly be taking your advice about gifts. I will start making my gift collection here in Maine, we have so many nice things that travel easily...I will make sure I have some way to thank these folks! Running out for a case of special soda is just above and beyond!
