Like PrincessShmoo sais: there is a reason why this isn't allowed. I understand why the porters agree to take the cases of water, they want the tip! IMHO DCL should enforce this rule! I would hate it if I were responsable for ruin others clothes, and I wouldn't like it if my suitcases were drenched in water just because people didn't want to follow the rules.
I truly understand that it seems to be such an innocent and practical thing to do, but the consequenses can be so big. We carried a few bottles of water with us onboard, and we had plenty left when we disembarked. The water on the ships is fine.
Please think about what can happen before you decide to break the rules.
