Bottles of Water from Port Stops

Actually, no. At that time, the official policy was no water or soda. It just wasn’t enforced. Not sure if the 12 bottle limit is enforced either but I do know that people who used to slap a luggage tag on a case and have it delivered to their room aren’t getting away with that anymore.

 

We had 3 cabins side by side and the 3rd cabin was meeting us at the port and I offered to bring their soda so we had (2) 12 packs of soda and also 12 flavored seltzer’s and they demanded to see the paperwork for the 3rd cabin otherwise they were going to confiscate the extras. I did have a copy of their paperwork so they finally let us through. This happened at the X-ray machine out of Bayonne.

That's for CASES of water, not individual bottles. 

They now allow up to twelve bottles/cans of non-alcoholic beverages to be brought on board.  If called to The Naughty Room, after showing that it's non-alcoholic and under the number allowed to be brought on board, they should be allowed to take it back to their room.

 

 

Uhh, this IS RCI we are talking about.  Expect the unexpected. 😄

 

The rules clearly stated CARRY ON, so they may hold them since you violated that.

 

Or maybe not.  And what happened last cruise, or even to others on the same cruise has no bearing on what happens to YOU.  This is RCI.

Had no problem bringing 12 bottles of water onto Harmony in PC this week, in carryon bags.  

 

Because that is clearly allowed by the rules.

Took a whole case of water on the Ovation on June 21st in Seattle.  I had three cabins for the whole family, but no one said anything to me.  Checked it in at the port with our luggage and it was delivered to my room before we sailed.

The porters and luggage handlers understandably got tired of pax simply "slapping a tag" on a bulky shrink wrapped 24-36 pack of bottled water (which was technically never allowed in the rules).  The cases don't have handles, they don't have rollers...not a joy to lug all the way up to your cabin.  

 

Me?  I put my six to eight loose bottles in a duffel bag with a handle and attach a tag to it.  Never fails to make it to my cabin.  Easier for them to handle.  

 

Now the rule is 12 bottles, but must be in your carry on.  

Are you saying you still put water in a duffel bag, check it, and it still gets to your cabin?

That’s how we always did it and it was great. 

The less ship’s water I drink the less my feet and ankles swell. That is a time tested fact.

Yes, have been doing it for years...but I don't "go overboard" (pun intended 😉 )....I just put 6-8 bottles in the duffel bag.

Thank you for this info! I’ll be having surgery in a few months, and my ENT wants me to diligent with the sinus rinses in preparation. I was wondering how I’d manage on the ship next month.

My husband needs his cpap when we cruise.  Royal had the distilled water and an extension cord waiting in our room after we called
