Now....Me.. I was under the impression that although the tap water may have a slight after-taste at times I thought that all experienced cruisers realised that this water is perfectly safe to drink....safer certainly than tap water in most of the world....Well...apparently this is not so, some people are under the impression that you cannot drink it & will not even use it (UK ships), to BOIL in the kettles in the rooms as they are convinced it is not safe. I was totally astonished at this, someone (first timer) asked where to get water for the kettle, I just laughed & said "out of the tap" turning to another seasoned cruiser for confirmation...who far from backing me up said they too would only use bottled water even in the kettle!! Is it me??
