I always drink bottled water. I read somewhere that people sometimes bring their own bottled water onboard. So my question is, how DO you bring your own bottled water aboard? It is so heavy. If I buy a soda card, will that cover bottled water?
No - your soda card will NOT cover bottled water - only fountain (not canned) soft drinks. I rarely drink soft drinks, but do drink a lot of bottled water, while my DH loves diet Pepsi (only Coke on ship). On our last cruise, I packed bottled water and diet Pepsi 24 oz. bottles two in each ziplock bag along with some wine wrapped in bubble wrap (for in-cabin consumption) into a 22" roll-on which was checked through, as well as a couple of bottles of water in my carry-on. No problems at all. On the return trip, this roll-on carried our souveniers and purchases.
