Default How can I take a case of water on?

Can I just put a luggage tag on case and give it to them with my luggage?

You do know Im sure cant bring coolers larger than 12 x 12 x 12 and porters have been refusing cases of water or soda where you just slap on a luggage tag instead of packing them in luggage I hope.

Just a FYI, that Id put it in something with a handle if you want to be sure it makes it to your cabin.

Have you ever had the water on a ship - I find nothing wrong with it. I fill a reusable bottle on the Lido and use that. Some people don't like the water or trust it. I guess because we always have to fly and sometimes aren't staying near a store it was never an issue for us.

We bring a soft sided one that is probably those dimensions. I certainly would not wheel one onboard. I know we can fit a lot into that little cooler.

last time i packed water into a roller suit case that we then used for souveneirs and stuffing the clothes back into because we never take the time to fold them up as nice and pack as tight as we did in the days ( ok weeks) heading up to the cruise

Two recent Conquest posters of reviews mentioned their coolers were barely above these limits and they were not allowed to carry it onboard. Even one inch larger and you better have it folded into a suitcase, not full of water.

My last 2 cruises, they were not letting any coolers on the ship, no matter what size, unless as firefly stated, it was a soft sided in you suitcase folded. it really has to do with who is working the port at any given day, some are strict, some let you slide, some don't care & some need to learn the rules before they tell a carnival passenger what they can & cant bring!

We got around this by using our cooler as a carry on. We put all of our "bathroom" stuff, tooth brushes, hairbrushes, razors, etc in our cooler. During the cruise, we used it as an ice chest, at the end, we wiped it down and used it the same again.

We put water and sodas in a mid size suitcase, checked with baggage, which colapsed into another bag easily once it was empty.

They can spot a cooler and some ports are strict, you got lucky. Why would you tell someone else to take the chance just because you were not stopped?? Iv got more links to being stopped at Port Canaveral too and other ports.

It was about an inch bigger than the limit for coolers, but we didn’t think it would be a problem since normal carry-on luggage, including our other 2 carry-on bags, are much larger than this cooler. Let me tell you, they can pick out a cooler, and they very strictly follow the cooler size requirements. We just shifted the sodas and the collapsed cooler to one of our other carry-on bags. No big deal- just much heavier to carry rather than roll on 24 sodas. And it probably took about 10-15 minutes to get everything shifted and get the approval to continue on into the terminal. Next time we’ll just bring a larger roll-on bag as the soda bag. .

Warning - They were very strict on the size limits for coolers. I had a rolling cooler packed with my water and juice. It was bigger than the 12x12x12 limit (by 3 inches). We had to take the cooler back to the car. It turned out to be no biggie as we had a frig in the room, but the fiasco did slow down our getting on the ship ...

That's good to know as I personally have never had an issue in the past. Sounds like things may be different now though.

Treat it like any other luggage.

Obviously, the smarter thing to do is to just bring a filter, rather than heavy cases of water.

What is considered "small quantities" of beverages? The Carnival policy states that..."Guests may bring a small quantity of non-alcoholic beverages".

Everyone that "smuggles" on alcohol gets flamed pretty hard on these boards because it results in higher prices for everyone else yet no one every says that those bringing on cases of soda or water are impacting the costs for the rest of us.

IMHO those bringing on more than maybe one soda or water per day is more of an impact than alcohol smugglers bringing on alcohol for a pre-dinner drink in their cabin. There would be no way to prove it, but my bet is the alcohol smugglers probably spend more during the cruise at the bars for more alcohol than the "legal" non-alcoholic carriers spend on additional non-alcoholic beverages.

We smuggle alcohol and soft drinks. Our bar tab is still in the four figures. I can guarantee that drink smugglers still buy alcohol on board.

Depends upon who is working the docks that day, some will allow a case, some will allow a 6 pack, some will argue & tell you non is allowed.

I know in my case, i bring booze & still spend quite abit of money on Cocktails, yes it is for the before dinner drinks out on the balcony.

I completely agree with you. I was just thinking there could be a difference with non-alcoholic carriers. And was also curious as to what people thought was reasonable for non-alcohol. We've all seen the alcohol threads and how people get slammed there but never a mention of that person who brings on cases of water.

I would also be curious what "small amount" means?
