Default Can you bring a case of unopened water on Royal Caribbean?

We sailed last year on Liberty of the Seas and were able to bring an unopened case of water. I just called and the operator said that you cannot, does anyone know if that is correct?

If you do not get an answer here try asking on the RCCL section. That is where most of the experts hang out.

I don't sail RCCL, but it is my understanding that if you can drink it, RCCL doesn't allow you to carry it on.

RCI says you can't, but you can...as long as it's not alcohol, they don't care. Not that you really NEED water...the ship's water is fine! But...bring it if you must!

Their policy is no soda/water/alcohol, etc. are allowed to be brought onboard. Their rep. was correct.

Default Water, Soft Drinks

Whats drinks do you get included in your package(not extra drink packages).

Do you get water with your meals? do you get soft drinks? do you get tea/ coffee with breakfast?

No free soft drinks. Yes, free water, tea, and coffee.

Thanks, just need to decide whether getting the soft drinks package is worth it or not,

if I get the package can I just gice them my card every time i want to get a soft drink(because it is unlimited) or do I have a cup that I will need to take with me everywhere that they will refill? (sounds silly but thats something I read they do)

You don't need to carry a cup with you...they will dispense your fountain soda into a glass at any bar or eating venue.
You can get tea(iced or hot) coffee, ice water, and milk at any meal. Juice is avail. at breakfast.
You can buy soda by the can, if you don't want a soda package.

You may not bring bottled water aboard. I believe you can buy bottled water packages that are VERY pricey for Evian (8 bottles for $28!). Ships have their own water purification system (a mini-system of the one that provides the water for your city). On 3 lines I have never had issue with the water.
You can get fountain soda with the package either with the sticker they put on your S&S card or with the mug (and we were surprised how they never checked our card when we handed them the mug!)

We take bottled water and soda all the time. It has never been an issue. Even if they look in my bag at security, they do not care as long as that is all it is. I also check water/soda and it gets delivered to the cabin just fine.

I usually bring on a 24 pack of water if we have driven to the port. It has never been confiscated. Last time was July on Ex.
