Hi Clas - Just to clarify... a majority, if not all, of the of the RCCL ships desalinize their own water from the ocean. None of their newer ships use water from ports for drinking or cooking.

Default Water on board
I do drink a lot of water. I ended up getting the water package, along with soda package and juice package. My memory must be shot because I can not remember if RC..specifically Freedom had water in fountain drinks (some places do). I think I only got 6 bottles of water. I did drink water at dinner and did not get sick. I don't think you will have any issues. Enjoy your cruise

I talked to RC. They don't allow ANY outside food or drink brought in, unless it's for medical reasons.

We always drink the water on the ships and have no ill effects. Same as at home, we have never drank bottle water, it's the biggest waste of money.

Default Voyager - March 6, 2011 Took our Water
My daughter had filled three thermos type bottles with water and at the check in, the staff poured the water out. I don't know if this would have happened had the water been in sealed bottles.

I can see that happening at check in; it would be just like trying to bring water through the check in at the airports.

The water on board is filtered better than any bottled water you can purchase. If you want, bring a couple of bottle type thermoses and fill them for when you go on shore. They do have bottled water for sale on the ship, but truthfully, it's a waste of money unless you just want the empty bottles to refill.
