Things you can buy on the ship, they do not allow to bring with you....pop, water bottles, wine, liquor....there are many, many thread lines discussing this. Some people still bring items with them, discretely, others just do not bother, and plan for the extra expense. You decide what works for you. As for not drinking the water, Jim is correct, that is SO YESTERDAY...now we just wash our hands 20 times a day !!

Jessica, do not put bottled water in a suitcase with anything that can be water damaged. On our cruise to Alaska during this past summer (August of 2007) my wife and I heard a story from a passenger about how bottled water had opened in a suitcase and ruined some clothes, a camera, and some other things. If you must bring bottled water on board (and this is a good idea toward keeping the overall cost of your cruise less expensive and because you are driving to your port of departure), buy a case and keep in sealed and put it in the suitcase with your beach shoes, bathing suits, t- shirts, and other materials that water cannot harm. The water on the ship is free but having a cold bottle of water when out walking around ports,and at night with your medicine is a nice treat.

Please note that after 20 cruises I have never had any problems with tap water on a cruise ship.

Hope that this helps.

I don't worry about the water on board but we are going Cozumel and Belize and I'm not planning on eating or drinking anything. We are going to take some light snacks and some bottled water. I haven't decided yet whether to bring it or buy it or both since their are 6 of us buying bottle water for two 7 hour trips could be costly.

Maybe I can bring a couple of empty plastic bottles and fill them up with water while on-board the cruise ship?

Actually the water station does have a sign that says filling of water bottles in unsanitary...go figure...cup or bottle.....you're not putting the mouth of the bottle up to the spout because you just can't....I would just take a glass and fill with ice cubes then water (It's warm) it would melt the ice and then I would pour it in my bottles....but I did get the looks!
