Default Can you bring water on the spirit inside your luggage?

I am getting mixed remarks about bringing bottled water on the spirit. We are going in june and would like to bring bottled water, but i don't want to go to the "naughty room". Thanks, Quincy

You're allowed to bring water and juice on board.

I actually called NCL and asked them about the water. They said you are allowed 1 six pack per person in your cabin. My husband and I are going with our two kids so we are going to bring a case of water with us.

In reality, there is no good reason to lug any bottled water on to the ship. I guess not a lot of people are aware that the tap water on board a cruise ship is as good, if not much better, than any brand of bottled water. The water is highly filtered and conditioned using RO technology.

I am very picky about water and have never had an issue with tap water on a cruise ship. I have heard some people claim the tap water make their feet swell and other maladies, but I suspect it has nothing to do with the water.

The only reason I could see having bottled water is to get a bottle to fill with tap water. They are handy containers.

Try the tap water, I bet you a dime you'll like it.

My business works on board ships.
Nothing tastes better than ice cold water from a USN scuttle butt.

However, that is navy and they do everything to higher standard.

On the other hand, we worked on the Fair Princess a while back and everthing behind the scenes was absolutely revolting. This condition is not representative of most cruise ships.

The QE2 just off loaded a bunch of sick people in SF.

I'm taking bottled water.

I'm just curious, are you taking food and ice too? People get sick from a variety of things. Not just water.

I agree that illness can come from many sources.

I drink shots with bottled chasers when I'm abroad.

The purification system (desalination, filtering, RO, etc.) occurs BEFORE the water is put into potable water storage tanks. From that point pumps take over to pressurize the system.
Even the brominating system that ensures an acceptable FAC does its work long before the water hits your tap.

No doubt that 99,9999% of the water your ship will MAKE is quite safe.

I watch the news, been below....taking my own bottles.

You'll probably be fine.
