You can order through the Fun Shop. It is rather expensive, but for light drinkers cheaper than the drink pachage. We can make one bottle last one seven day cruise per person.

I'm surprised you believe it's " rather expensive " . I believe all the other cruise lines either only offer large bottles or none at all . Brand name bottles for under $20 seems like a deal(relative to the competition).

Cost for a bottle of Bombay in the fun shop delivered to you room to drink during the cruise is about $100.00. The bottles sold for taking home are around 20 to 30.

I have never heard of the Fun Shop.   

I know right!

Sounds like a Carnival thing.

It's clearly a Carnival thing. That's where they charge 4x as much as on land.

It's a running joke with my wife and me.... I order a "Vodka Tonic" and they always ask if I have preference of "Vodka?"  My answer, that seems to offend my wife all the time is  "Is your tonic water any good!?"  You shouldn't taste the Vodka in the drink... and gin drinkers always know the difference between good giin and bad gin.

You sound like me! I consider vodka simply cooking alcohol and can't imagine why anyone would want to drink it for the taste! But then there are gin drinkers, vodka drinkers, scotch drinkers etc; and we all think the other drinkers are NUTS!😉

 

No offense to my vodka drinking friends.....I have been known to actually have a vodka martini now and then...as long as it has the proper Queen sized pimento olives it in! 😎

Seltzer and sparkling water are the same thing, just carbonated water (with or without flavoring). Club soda is carbonated water with sodium added.

 

I think you will find tonic water is different to sparkling water.
