I find no matter which ship, the water always has a funny taste. Sorrrrrry fellow posters who like the water. We always bring bottled water. We buy it in Florida before getting on the ship. A case of 24. And we also bring Diet Gingerale 6 of those in case we feel sick (never do) but I have had others travel with us who have. Whichever line, be in Carnival, RCCL, NCL or Princess. They always let us board with our water. Never had an issue. We also do it in Europe. We could not get Nestle water there so we have had to take it across the pond in our luggage and, again, never an issue taking it about Princess in Europe anyways. We will try it again in two weeks when we head off on Eastern Med and Egypt on Princess.
