It is salt water. Don't ask me how I found out.

Actually I found out from the Chief Engineer on the old Ocean Princess. Salt water is used to conserve the fresh water supply on board. They would have to almost double the amount of fresh water created in order to accommodate the toilet systems. This would add significant cost in the building and maintaining of the ship.

I actually find that interesting.

Take care,
Mike
