Default check it or carry it? water/soda

I'm leaving tomorrow. I have a small carry on type luggage bag (with shoulder strap) that I have put a 12pk of soda and a 6 pack of water in. It's going to be pretty heavy if I have to wait in line for a long time to board the ship. I was wondering if it's safe to send something like this through checked luggage.. or could it burst open from all the throwing around that the checked luggage endures? So what's safer? check or carry?
Thanks!!!

I think a can of soda could easily pop open under pressure & soak your clothes.

Carry it Is the best thing to do I think Because if you think about all the luggage they toss trying to board it it may burst and get on stuff you need the most on your week long vacation tell me about your trip when you get back............

I take a separate sports bag along. Buy my caff free diet coke in port city, then place it in the sports duffle bag, and check that with the rest of my luggage.

So far thats worked out fine, and the soda has arrived at my cabin in tact with the luggage.

For sure, carry it on. While you are waiting in line, just leve it on the floor and pull it along, that should save the shoulders.....have fun!

If you haven't left yet . . .

Leave it home. Bring 1 or 2 bottle of water with you for the trip to port. You can refill the bottles on the ship b/c the water is fine.

Buy the soda in your 1st port of call. It may be a $1 or 2 more expensive than at home but it will save on wear & tear & aggravation. You should not check carbonated beveages b/c of the change in pressure plus you don't know how your bags will get tossed around out of your presence.

Bon Voyage.
