we are cruising on the adventures of the sea so caribbean this next week and wondered ifyou drink a lot of water is the best plan to bring a water bottle from home or does the ship have free water in bottles you can take on the days in port. Is the water in the ports safe?
I always stick with the bottled water and just accept the fact before I even get on the ship that I will have to pay for it. (I am never too sure about some of the ports we are in.) The ship is happy to sell it to you but I have found it to be much cheaper in the port than on the ship.
I think RCCL charges $3.50 for a 1500ml bottle of Evian, and $2.25 for an 11 ounce version. Of course you need to add 15% to these prices. Shore side, one can probably get the 1500 ml bottle for around $2 or so.
hi, Christine,not a real experienced cruiser yet,but working on it,best way to travel.On my last cruise I purchased inexpensive plastic bottles from Can.tires.good for hot & cold.light enough for carry on,plane.Used on ship for extra coffee or juice in morning ret. to cabin after breakfast.ReAl reason for purchasing was for water.water on ships good to drink,so filled with ice cubes by time ready to drink voila.cold water.In certain ports I would not trust their bottled water,u don't know what or where bottled.bottles we purchase where under 3.00,super easy to carry as they even had handles.Ships charged 2.00or3.00per small bottle.Hope this helps.wishing you a great cruise,but this is a given.enjoy
I have always brought along my own bottles of water in my suitcase, Once onboard you can put them in your fridge in your cabin. I keep these for our port days, have never bought those expensive bottles of water on the ship.
A 12 pack of bottled water usually does us for the entire cruise.
Totally agree with Waters, Take a container with you and fill it up at the drink fountain.
Get a wider mouth one so you can add the ice. We did this all the time. I agree with some of the water you buy on shore. Happy Sailing...
