I don't know about a case but I know you can take some. The water on the ship is great. So if you take few bottles you can just refill them from the tap. I never bothered carrying all the weight.

I agree with Dina. Take a couple of bottles and refill them from the ship. Even though the cruise line would LOVE for you to buy bottled water, the ship's water is of a higher quality than almost any public water system and most bottled waters.

Take care,
Mike

We finally received the deck last week(UPPER/6419) and just waiting for the documents and our passports. Hopefully documents will arrive within next 2 weeks and passports by end of August.

Upper deck ? not bad ?

yes, I had the tap water every day, and it was great, I'm usually a bottled water person - spring water only - anything else (i.e. "purified" etc.) is just tap water.

you have a great location. Looks mid-ship.. Always good if your not sure about seasickness.

Have to agree - the water on the ship should be fine.

Our first ship was an older one and the water was not very good. The next year we picked up a 12 pack of bottled water and took it on the ship - along with a 12 pack of Diet Pepsi (the ships serves Coke and I prefer Pepsi). No one said a thing to us.

We had a room with a mini fridge that we had the room steward open. There is minimal in them so we were able to fit a couple of the sodas in. As for the water, we would ask for extra ice the night before port and would have the water sit in ice in the bathroom sink until we left for the port. That way we had cold water to take with us.

Anyway you do it, have a great time and enjoy.

Safe sailing.
