Hi.if you buy a bucket of beer but only want to drink a couple at a time can you put them in your cabin fridge and take them back around pool the following day and if so how do you open them ? (Are they to be opened with a bottle opener ) were do you get one if you want to drink it in your cabin?

Even bring the bucket as they will put fresh ice in it for you when you get to the pool!

We just returned from a cruise on the Sun. My husband purchased a bucket of beer and only drank 2 the first night. He put the rest in the frig and let the bucket go back. Worked out great for him

I would definitely assume you could take them wherever you want. When I was on the Epic in November, I got on an elevator the last night and found a full bucket of beer sitting on the floor of the elevator. The ice had mostly melted... and there was no one in sight. I guess someone sat it down en route to somewhere and then forgot about it. LOL

The question is did you give that bucket of beer a good home?

It depends on what beer you buy. I was drinking Sam Adams recently and that was just under $25 (5 x $4.95). I think that is about the cheapest it gets.

Plus tip and possibly taxes, depending on itinerary, of course.

I am so glad they give out openers now. I have a bucket from a past cruise with the opener built into the top of the handle...not such a great design, but fun to watch people on 2d or 3rd buckets try to use it!
