Bottled water prices on Carnival


Recommended Posts

I am not really sure I should be pointing this out, however, here goes nothing.  Don't know if others have noted this, but, under "In Room Food and Beverages", they list the bottled water prices.  For $3.95 you can get ONE of the large (50.72oz) bottles of water.  Yet for ONE dollar more, $4.95, you can get an entire case of the 16.2 sizes (much easier to tote around).  What kind of sense does that make?  We are Platinum so we would get two of the large bottles, however, I would rather just pay the small fee for the case and get it delivered and get the two large bottles if we run out, which is highly unlikely.

Totally agree.  I run on the track and the rest of my family goes to the gym so we prefer the 16 oz bottles to take with us.  Although we drink the water available on the ship, we always order a couple cases of water too.

A few years ago we could schlepp our own water on board. When that ended, the reasonably-priced packs of water were introduced. That's how I remember it anyway.

FYI. Just in case someone takes this as described, It is a twelve pack of 16.9 oz. bottled water not a case. Still a good deal aboard any ship.

Yes, we get the pack of water also.   Easy to pack in our bag when heading off for an excursion, and good to have in the cabin, too.   They will deliver it the first day of the cruise if it's not already in your room by the time you get there.

We brought canned carbonated water onboard. It's just bottled water you cant being now.

Funny story on the Vista for 33 days in 2016. I ordered a couple of packs and got to my cabin and there were 6 packs. I try to tell my stewardess I didn’t order all those and somebody might be missing their’s. Nobody seemed to care, so I passed some to friends on board.

I like flavored sparkling water, so will usually bring some of that, plus order a pack or 2 from Carnival.

I've always taught my kids how to comparison shop to get the best price by using the unit price. This would be one of those times. We do get the water but only to have available when we go ashore.

Memory serves you well.  When the stopped allowing bottles to be carried on they reduced the price of the water - kind of had to.  The pack of water is one of the more reasonably priced things you can get, it is still inflated a bit - but not like a lot of the other beverages you can pre order (example: $10 for a 6 pack of canned pop)

 

We always get 12 bottles delivered too so it is in the room waiting.  I drink mostly water and we too take them off the ship for all our excursions.
