The water is always good on Princess, I have a bladder disease so I carry one of those Brittas to take out the clorine. Much more reasonable than bottled water. The first cruise I took on Carnival I found the water to be grose!

Bottled water comes from Natural Running Springs which have been ionized....not wells.

Hi,
We were on the Grand this June in the Med. I filled my water bottle with the tap water on the ship. The water had a strong clorine taste to it. It did not make me sick but I drank bottled water after that.

The water has to be safe otherwise you could not shower or bath in it. Just by washing your face you will get some in your mouth and what would be the sense of washing your hands if the water was contaminated?

If you still are not convinced that the water is safe to drink a trick is to put ice cubes in a glass and use the water from them as the drinking water.

I'd go as far as to say the distilled water on made on the ship is probably cleaner than most city utilities provide. With the cruise industry under the spot light on stomach viruses, I have to believe they take water purification very seriously as EVERYTHING cooked on the ship as well as the ice in all the drinks is made from the ships distilled water source.

But I never did understand the whole "bottled water" thing. People are so water worried, but don't think twice about breathing the much more polluted air we live in...

Did you read what I wrote? Maybe I need to be clearer.

The room steward replaces the ice in your ice bucket many times a day. These cubes have to be safe to consume because passengers will use them in a drink. Take the cubes, put them in a glass and let them melt. You will now have cool water that is also safe.

I was just watching the news tonight & noticed that ther're selling pre-packaged water in plastic for making ice cubes- only 10 cents each.

Please tell me you don't really think the ship uses one (water) source for the kitchen, bars and the water coolers scattered around, a different source for plumbing (like your sink and shower) and yet, another totally separate and different source just for making ice?

Dave, HELP - this was your area of expertise in the Navy.
