CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Carnival Cruise Line has decided to ban bottled water from being brought on to their ships.

Carnival Cruise representatives say they are implementing this new rule in order to stop people from sneaking alcohol onto the ships and believe banning water bottles will curb that issue.

Due to the change in policy, Carnival says the company has decided to lower the price of bottled water that customers can purchase on the cruise to $4.99 for a 12-pack of half liter bottles.

The change takes effect on July 9th and should speed up the boarding process.
