    Hi, another question (and thank you for answering all others)… cruising to Alaska in June. I want to bring bottle waters. How many bottles can I bring, what size bottles, and, can they be in the luggage or does it have to be in carry-on? Thanks!

    Ahoy, Yeesun Susan!  

    Welcome back to planDisney – we can’t thank you enough for trusting our advice and returning with more great planning questions for your upcoming Disney Cruise Line vacation. I’m also preparing to sail to Alaska aboard the Disney Wonder, so I’m happy to help you understand how to bring your own bottled water onboard.

    There is no limit to the number of non-alcoholic drinks, including bottled water, that you can bring onboard with you on embarkation day in Vancouver. These beverages must be in their original sealed containers (no size limit to each individual bottle) with labels and must fit in your carry-on bag. That carry-on bag does have a size limit which will restrict the total number of bottles you bring - your carry-on bag must be no larger than 14” x 22” x 9”. Please remember that you will be in possession of this bag until your stateroom is ready, typically by early afternoon. Water bottles can get heavy quickly, so please sure you have the right structured bag to support them and that you are able to carry the load for several hours without risking injury. You are not allowed to leave your unattended carry-on bag anywhere onboard until your stateroom is ready.

    You may purchase bottled water in advance through Onboard Gifts and Amenities, and it will be delivered to your stateroom on embarkation day, if that is a desirable alternative. These are stainless steel Dasani bottles and I find them to be so crisp and cold - very refreshing! You can purchase these in several sized packages, but please be sure to order online within three days of your sailing.

    I also pack a spillproof bottle for each family member on our cruises, Yeesun Susan. There is a beverage station on the pool deck with an assortment of drinks that you can fill your own container with (or use the complimentary small paper cups) throughout your cruise. This includes water that is made freshly onboard Disney Cruise Line – I find it to be delicious without a peculiar taste. There are several sodas, tea, coffee, and hot cocoa available too.  

    Aren’t you just thrilled to be sailing to Alaska in a few weeks? I can hardly contain my own excitement for our trip, and I’m so happy your family will enjoy this magical bucket-list adventure too! I can’t wait to see the stunning scenery, some special wildlife, and enjoy our incredible Port Adventures we have reserved. Please let us know if you have any more questions as you finalize your packing and final preparations.

    Wishing you an unforgettable Alaskan cruise,
