Default Saying Hi and Looking for Advise.

Waiting anxiously for my first cruise. 96 more days . Anyone sailing on the Star Princess in April? I would like to know if you can buy bottled water on the ship or is it safe to drink the ships water? I appreciate your comments. I have to take medication with me with involves a syringe. What are the policies ? Do I have to inform the ship?
Thanks and Happy Cruising.

The ship distills drinking water from the ocean, producing the purest drinking water that you will find anywhere. It's far more pure than bottled water, which usually is the regular drinking water from the location of the bottling plant.

You'll get an information package, which will contain that information, from Princess, via your travel agent, a week or two after Princess receives your final payment. Be sure to read the information package completely!

I totally agree with Norm. The ships water is very good. What we do is we buy a few sports bottles before we board the ship, and re-fill them as we go.
As for your medication you should have your TA call the Special Services Department

Hi cruise4two,

Welcome to Cruisemates!

Yes, the water on board is very good, but if you want to bring a case with you that's fine, too. Just put a luggage tag on it and it will be delivered to your cabin. You can also buy bottled water on board (at very high prices !).

If you need a sharps container inform your TA or your PVP. If it's not there when you board, just ask your room steward.

Have a wonderful cruise!

The water is good but I think we should have brought bottled water to keep in our room. I hate to buy a container of something instead of bringing it with.
