Default Bottled Water?

I was wondering... How much is a bottle of water on board? Is it included on the soda card? I also plan bringing some along, how many bottles is a reasonable amount? Thanks!

No - bottled water is extra, and they only have the large bottles, which are about $3.25 a bottle. There will be one in your stateroom with a cardboard "greeting" around the neck saying in very large letters:"Welcome Aboard! This is for your enjoyment, etc. etc." Then, in very small letters, it will say something like, "Your shipboard account will be charged $3.25 if you open this bottle". Bring your own, and bring the small ones. I always re-fill mine with icewater from the Lido buffet.

Careful about buying bottled water at the ports, have heard that they refill with local water at times.... Also the ice can give you the trots...

how do you like cruising in November. I would guess great since this will be your second cruise in November on the Conquest. How is the weather and water. Is it still hurricane season in November?

They sell small bottles of cold water on your way off the ship at all the ports.

Not only do you get charged for the water, but you HAVE to charge it on your acct. and they add a "tip". Bring your own water! Then you'll have it for excursions as well.

I brought along a 16 ounce water bottle
and kept refilling it for free on the lido deck.
100% pure distilled water.

we brought 1 12 pack of the smaller bottles (12 oz )
and brought a cheap disposable cooler
and our cabin steward kept them on ice for us
you can also use the bottles to refill on deck either the water , juice, lemonade or punch
I also brought some crystal light lemonade and mixed it in here and added my own

another idea is to buy a water bottle or one of those big insulated mugs that they sell in ;the gift shop and you can keep filling this all day long and you have a souvenier

Has anyone used those Brita Water Bottles that are out there. We are thinking of taking them with us to use while we are out. What they are, are sport bottles that have a brita water filter in the cap, so the water gets filtered before you drink it. We used them in Orlando last year and they were great. Just use regular tap water and it the filter takes care of the rest. Anyone used them before?
