    Wikipedia says:
    "The density of ice is 0.9167 g/cm at 0C, whereas water has a density of 0.9998 g/cm at the same temperature."

    It is probably more useful to consider specific volume, the volume of 1 g of water or ice (the reciprocal)
    Water: 1.0002 cm/g
    Ice: 1.0909 cm/g
    Just over 9% expansion.
