Two crystal structures of cyclic water hexamers are reported, one with a bicyclic cryptand and the other with a tricyclic host. In the bicycle structure, the water molecules lie between the cryptands. In the tricycle structure, the hexameric water cluster is almost totally encapsulated within the host framework.
