I am cruising on Vision of the Seas in October. I do not drink alcohol nor soda. Is bottled water free or do I have to buy it? Does the tap water taste OK? I have no problem filling my own water bottle from the tap and drinking that. I don't want to be paying $3 or $4 for a bottle every time I want a drink of water. Does anyone know how this is handled?

welcome to Cruise-Chat.com!

Bottled water is not free. This does also apply to the bottle you will find in your cabin.

While it is difficult to predict how the tap water tastes, it has always been okay for me and I am particularly not used to chlorinated water as we have an excellent water quality where I live.

You can get tap water free of charge around the clockin the Windjammer Café (buffet restaurant) on all RCI ships.
Best regards,

The Tap water is just fine....My wife has a Thermo mug she puts Iced Tea from the Buffet in....works just great....The bottled water in your room is around $3.00...so we always pass...
Happy Sailing...

Just bring a large supply of Aquafina. That way you cover all the bases. You would have tap water that comes bottled.

The tap water on ships is filter. Your stateroom attendant will keep you supplied with ice for your cabin. You can easily avoid paying for bottled water while on your cruise.

For those who may not have gotten your point....Aquafina IS tap water. Pepsico has agreed to start saying so (in fine print I presume) on its bottles.

NEW YORK (Reuters) -- PepsiCo Inc. will spell out that its Aquafina bottled water is made with tap water, a concession to the growing environmental and political opposition to the bottled water industry. According to Corporate Accountability International, a U.S. watchdog group, the world's No. 2 beverage company will include the words "Public Water Source" on Aquafina labels.
