Mobile RCI - do you buy a drinks package for an adult and a child?

I have bought an adults drinks package for myself and my husband (we will get our moneys worth!). Do I have to buy a package for the 2 kids or we will be able to swing it that they can get soft drinks using our deal?

We got cups for soft drinks,left in our cabin,with our drinks package.
I cant see why the children,couldnt use them at the self serve soda machines,but I have only been on one cruise,on the oasis of the seas,so someone with a lot more knowledge of cruising may say otherwise.
I cant forsee any problems with you getting soft drinks for the children

Sharing is strictly prohibited on the ships...however we were also left 2 refillable soda cups as part of our package and they were never used. I dont see why you couldnt use them for your children if you dont plan on drinking sodas. They will only be able to fill them up at the machines. If they had their own package you could order at the bars and restaurants also.

Ok thanks, that is what I was thinking. They would quite happily drink water with meals anyway.

We are going on our first RCI cruise next Saturday. Dh and I both have the deluxe drinks package.

Our ds doesnt drink soda and only really likes squash. We are planning on filling the free cups we get given with water and I have bought some of those handbag sized squash concentrate to add. Think they were 40p each in home bargains

We are just off Mariner this morning. Fab fab fab! We had 2 cabins hubbie had drinks package. Soda cup was in room at arrival. Dd filled it a couple of times but my 2 prefer water with meals. I know strictly speaking it's not allowed but I can't see the harm!

Our first cruise in 2017 none of us had the drinks package. There were that many kids on the boat that we 10 kids go to a bar for cokes the barman doesn't even look at their cards.

My son got free drinks all week. We did put money on his card for drinks but he said the guys never asked for it... The tend not to swip for soft drinks on RCI so it's possible they won't check.

Even in the mornings when getting bottles for excursions the staff rarely asked to see the cards. They just gave out the water.
