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.

I can understand sales tax but a gratuity on merchandise is baffling?
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.
