I read this tip. Do you agree?

No need to lug a case of water with you when you go cruising. The tap water on cruise ships is completely safe and drinkable, having been through rigorous filtration and testing, all of which are overseen by U.S. and European heath agencies. While some cruisers claim that the tap water in restaurants and bars tastes different from what comes out of the cabin bathroom, it is all, in fact, the same water.

I believe that it's not bad for you ...However, I always buy a dozen bottles for $7 that are in my fridge when I arrive so other than a quick faucet drink for medication, I usually drink the bottled.

I'll stick to the bottled water.  Happy

I don't have a problem with it. I do like having a bottle in hand as I do my walk about ship. The ships water is the same water that they cook with, make your coffee, tea, lemonade, clean the plates we eat off and the ice that goes in to the drinks they serve us. Some say that it has an odd taste only because they don't add all those chemicals that the government forces us to drink in our homes. 

I agree with buying the bottled water from the line.  Its like $3.50 for a case which is plenty.  I also like have a cold bottle on the night stand to hydrate during the night and morning.  Even though the water from the ship is clean so to speak.  What about the thousands of feet of piping it has to travel to get to your cabin.  How clean can they be after time?  I doubt they get a thorough cleaning.   

We buy the bottled water to take on excursions, but I also take a refillable bottle to add ice to and some lemonade or iced tea to mix with the cold water on the Lido. Our room on the Sunshine didn't have a frig, so our bottled water was always room temp. The small ice bucket kept one can of soda chilled for DH to enjoy in the afternoons.

  Yep, the ice bucket I can cram about 3 bottles into it.  Simple solution is I ask the room steward for an additional bucket.  Works out fine.  Always cold water.   

 

I'll purchase a case of water for "just in case" because you never know what may happen.

I’ve never cleaned the pipes bringing water into my home.  Not sure that’s even possible… Surprised

I will buy some bottled water to have for excursions and walking around the ship.   In the MDR and Lido I drink the tap water.
