Just looked at my bill - my total was $23.43.
Oh, that makes sense if a server on the beach sold it. It's still a good value, I'd say!

I will be buying 1 or more of these if they are still selling them next May. I pretty much only drink water so this would be awesome for me.

We were on the Fantasy over Easter, and I bought one of the new coolers at one of the small bars right next to the pool. I bought an empty one for $11.50. Later, I realized it was silly of me not to buy it with the 6 bottles of water for $19.50. $8.00 for 6 bottles of Evian on a Disney cruise is about as cheap as it gets!!

ETA: FWIW, the cooler is very cute but is sort of an awkward size and shape. It isn't really collapsible, either, so I put it in my mostly-empty carryon bag to keep it from getting squashed on the flight home.

Gratuity was probably added because of the water bottles, which are supplied by the bars, I think.

Oh I hope they have this on my 3-day cruise in August! I was going to order a water package with 6 bottles but I'd rather get this if they have it.

I thought I read somewhere these were sold out, can anyone confirm if this is true? We're sailing on the Dream in September and was hoping to be able to purchase one.

The gratuity would be on the water being purchased. All beverages on a cruise that are purchased are subject to a 15% gratuity.

We bought it for $11.50 with out the water. We love it. Perfect size for my son's sports team snacks.

You can also "upgrade" and get it with 6 beers on ice instead of water.
