Default bottle water

There has been alot of talk about soda cards and how much they cost per day. My question is how much do they charge for bottle water on the Serenade? Bottle water is not included on a soda card

Thanks for your reply

I found a message on a board from February that lists the price of bottled water as "$2.25 and up".

Too much IMHO. What we do is bring on a couple bottles and save them and refill them with the ships water before going ashore. The ships water is just a good as any bottled water.

What I read earlier led me to believe the biggest problem with the ship's water is the temperature (which of course can be remedied by some time in the refrigerator, eh?) I did see a television program that covered what they go through to get us potable water on board. Very impressive. Besides desalination, they remineralize the water, which should result in very pure, very good-tasting water.

Baby, I do like Jim suggests ... pack a few, and then refill. We also stop at stores in port too if I need an ice cold one. But gosh, $2-$3 for water!

Thank you all for your reply's . I will take your suggestions and pack a few and refill them on the ship. We do that at home, If we are going for a drive or playing golf my husband puts a water bottle in the freezer which has melted by the time we get to the golf course.

babyface, do one better, don't pack the water, buy it in port before you sail. Stop at a grocery store and pick up a few bottles.
