Carnival Switching To Pepsi Products Including Bottled Starbucks Beverages

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

People tend to land one of two ways in the Pepsi vs. Coke debate: They can't taste the difference and could not care less or they are HUGELY passionate about one over the other. If you fall into the latter category, or are a regular cruise-goer, you might be interested to know as of January 2020, Carnival Cruise Lines will be #TeamPepsi.

The cruise line announced the switch (they had previously carried Coca-Cola products, per Cruise Critic) November 13, with Carnival President Christine Duffy saying this of the collab:

At Carnival Cruise Line, we invite our guests to Choose Fun, and now with PepsiCo's extensive portfolio of brands, we're able to give them more ways to choose a beverage that suits their taste, mood and preference...We're also excited to work with PepsiCo on our shared commitment to sustainability, including a reduced reliance on plastics, and alternative ways to deliver and serve water and other beverages.

It's easy to forget, but PepsiCo includes a whole host of drinks beyond soda. Per a press release, this partnership will add new iced teas, sparkling water, coffee drinks, sports drinks, juices, and soft drinks to Carnival's 25+ ships (including the forthcoming Mardi Gras ship!). That means passengers will be able to enjoy Starbucks ready-to-drink coffee—yep, bottled Frapps for all!—Pure Leaf tea, Naked Juice, Gatorade, bubly seltzer, and sodas like Pepsi, Pepsi Zero Sugar, Sierra Mist, Sierra Mist Zero Sugar, and MTN DEW on board. A hangover Gatorade is now in your future.

As for the cost, Carnival offers drink packages with unlimited soda and juice for $5.95 per day for kids and $8.50 per day for adults; the more expansive Cheers! package costs $51.95 a day and includes unlimited soda, juice, specialty coffee, wine, beer, frozen cocktails, hot tea, bottled water, and energy drinks.

Doesn’t affect me in the least. I don’t drink soda any longer, but when I did. I was a Diet Coke girl. I hate Mountain Dew and Gatorade.  I do like the Starbucks coffee and ice tea bottled beverages, though, but they still don’t take the place of a good freshly made cafe mocha.🙂
