I was curious, why do people need to bring their own water on the boat? I was on a Carnival cruise last year and the regular water they had tasted fine to me. Which is surprising for Carnival. Don't most ships at least filter their 'tap' water? I will be on the MSC Divina in a week. I figured I'll just bring a water bottle to fill up as needed. This should work fine, right?
We always use the ship water. If we do not like the taste of what comes from the stateroom tap there is always water available in the buffet. My wife always drinks the water and is happy with it. I prefer the ice tea with a wedge of lemon.
I don't mind the water on the ship at all, but I do often add a little lemonade and/or ice tea to it. My husband prefers bottled water for excursions for the convenience of them, so we always buy the bottles ahead of time.
