Soda, water, club soda...whatever, no limit.
The only limits are on wine. One bottle per adult passenger. After that "free" one (which is supposed to be consumed in your cabin, but you can pour it into a glass and wander freely), it's $15 corkage whether it's consumed in your cabin or not.

The limit is how much you want to carry aboard.

I think this is the best answer to this question. Because it’s been asked soooooooooo many times.

Do they have diet tonic onboard or do I need to bring my own?

You can bring as much liquor on board as you want, just be prepared to wave bye bye at the door and just maybe see it again at the end of the cruise to carry it all home.

These repetitive questions always posting a new thread get tiring. I wish Cruise Critic mgmt would do something like have a FAQ section or more dedicated threads to the topics that get posted over and over and over again. It would be far better and more efficient for all concerned. I'd even volunteer to help set it up.

Suggested FAQ posts:
1) Clothing recommendations
2) How much liquid refreshment can I bring on board?
3) How do I bring my own soda/wine/water on board?
3) How does the corkage fee for wine work?

Your forgot the "can I get the (before ship docks time) flight home......I get so tired of that one too. I agree, there should be separate boards set up for the most frequently asked questions.

After reading these boards since 2005, I really have learned a great deal from members that have been there and done that. I to am tired about the same questions asked every week, month and year by members that are too lazy to do a little research.

I don't ever mean to stop someone from asking a question, but please, stop asking questions that can be Googled that will give you a link to Cruise Critic, which will answer 99% of the questions.

As long as we are asking questions about bringing sodas onboard, is the amount that I can carry really the limit to the amount of soda I can bring aboard?

I'm thinking that I might get a baggage handler to follow me to the taxi that I had stop at Walmart to pick up the 60 cases of soda that I purchased. Of course, I will "slap" a luggage tag on the stack and give the baggage handler a $5 tip. Do you think I will get delivery to my stateroom prior to disembarkation?

Totally Agree.

But.....I worked retail for EVER, the most frustrating part of my job? Being asked 50 times a shift..where is the wash room,where's the bathroom, can you tell me where the bathroom is, where is the rest room, Yo, men's room, well you get the point. Every person we had to smile and direct them, not point, to the correct place. We were told that just because we are asked the same question 50 times a day, every time that person asked, it was that persons ONLY time they asked.

I have to say, I am surprised that some posters choose to open this thread, read through, and then take time to comment but not to be helpful. I know that I have brought these items in the past, and surely I or anyone else can google as well as search the forum and message boards. However I like to hear from people that have sailed recently. Perhaps others may feel the same and that is why they ask on a current, live message board. If people don`t want to answer, why not move along rather than chastise? Anyway, jmho. On my part I am happy to hear that sodas and water can still be brought onboard as many other cruiselines have changed their policy. Thanks

Very well-said. I often wonder just who is forcing the whiners and complainers to open up and read a thread. Hey folks, just move along. There are thousands of threads on cruise critic for you to read and no one is forcing you to read them all!

They continue, because posters reply.

There are folks here who build their post counts by answering "What's a coffee card?" every day.

Please don't take this away from them. This is their life.

Otherwise, rather than posting some rant about repetative topics, when some posts a rerun,
reply with a link to an existing thread and move on.

It depends on how crafty you are.
I always manage to take enough for my needs and don't forget that you can leave the ship & reenter with additional loads at distant ports.
