Is it allowable to bring your own case of water onto the ship? If so, could you please advise as to how I would go about doing so. I would appreciate any response. Thanks in advance.

For the most part, yes, its ok to bring a case of water onboard.

People use to "slap a luggage tag" on the case of water and have it delivered to their cabin with their luggage but Ive heard of Porters refusing to handle it that way now.

I would either plan on carrying it on or you could pack it in your checked luggage individually and hope for the best.

The cruise documents say no, it is not allowed, but anecdotal reports say that they rarely stop people from bringing non-alcoholic beverages aboard.

I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're going and hook up with them later.

Just tape luggage tag to case of water and you should be fine. It will be delivered to your cabin along with your luggage.

I made a "handle" out of duct tape and attached it to the case of water and then put a luggage tag on it. It made it easier for the porters to carry it. It arrived to our cabin with no issues.

Enjoy your cruise!

one question....
What do you consider a "case of water"???
Is it a Big Bottle? or is it the 24 bottles package??

Thanks.

I think of a case as the 24 bottle package.

We never had a problem up until our recent FOS cruise. The porter would not take the packaged case of water. I brought it through security myself. It was thoroughly inspected and I held it until we were allowed access to the cabin.

I had previously tagged and had delivered a case of water at least a half dozen times. Not sure why there was an issue this time.

We were on the Mariner last week also. I put a cas in my luggage, they did not deliver that bag to the cabin. I had to go pick it up at security and let them see what it was. Oh well, I got my water!
