Hey, hootie. I jut today read your post of Feb.28 in which you asked me how we found out about the soft drink package on the River Harmony. Somehow I had missed it. The short answer is we don't remember. It must have been mentioned in the papers we received either at home or on the ship. But we may have been calling on our ocean cruise experience and just asked about it. But it worked at lunch and any other time of day in the bar. There was no fountain drink set up in either the restaurant or the bar. All of her drinks, Coke Light (Diet Coke), were poured from a bottle. When the First Mate walked into the bar the bar tender automatically reached for the Coke Light bottle.

Captain Larry...

Thanks for your (quick!) response to my beverage question.  I kept checking for reply...thought maybe I was being "shunned".

Next river cruise (Dec.), I'll ask at the bar...& tell them the captain sent me!

The last few River Cr;uises we were on with Grand Circle, they mentioned it the first night for those who want their own wine, drinks, etc, over and above the included wine and soft drink at each evening meal.
