(9 a.m. EST) -- Carnival Cruise Line is making a big change to the soft drink choices aboard its vessels. Beginning in January 2020, the line will switch from Coca-Cola products to beverages from PepsiCo, Inc.
The line said in a press release that the new beverage offerings would encompass everything from Starbucks ready-drink coffee to a wide selection of iced teas, sparkling water, coffee drinks, sports drinks, juices and soft drinks, including low-calorie and no-sugar options.
"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," Carnival Cruise Line President Christine Duffy said in a statement. "PepsiCo's line-up of beverages will give our guests access to leading brands in growing non-soda categories like iced tea, juice and sparkling water, as well as popular soft drink brands that consumers love. 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."
Including Pepsi-branded products, PepsiCo's lineup also includes Pure Leaf, Naked Juice, Gatorade, Mtn Dew, Starbucks, Sierra Mist and Sierra Mist Zero Sugar, among others.
"Our brands both celebrate having fun and offering something special for everyone, making PepsiCo and Carnival Cruise Line a great match," said Anne Fink, president of PepsiCo Global Foodservice.

(12:45 p.m. EDT) -- In a less optimistic call than in previous quarters, Royal Caribbean Group reported a $1.3-billion loss for the third quarter of 2020 on Thursday, and remained mum on chances that the current "No Sail" order would be revoked this week.

Although limited sailings had returned to service this fall aboard European subsidiaries TUI Cruises and Hapag-Lloyd Cruises, the company continues to burn through $250 to $290 million per month in hot and cold layup expenses as its global fleet awaits a return to service following the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

Roughly half of all cruisers on cancelled sailings are electing to take cash refunds, while the remaining fifty percent

(Updated 12:25 p.m. EDT) -- With ocean and river cruise lines temporarily suspending service around the world as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, keeping track of the seemingly minute-by-minute changes to the cruise industry can be challenging.
