Default Lemonade on breakaway

Does anyone know if the lemonade on the Breakaway is fresh lemonade or more like Minute Maid? My son only drinks milk and lemonade, so if fresh I will have to bring the single serving packets to make our own. Thanks!

Wait, you rather have your son drink 'minute maid' or lemonade packets instead of fresh made lemonade?

If he is thirsty enough he will. My bother has 4 kids and they will eat whatever you put in front of them. No cooking separate meals. Your doing a disservice to your child by falling into that trap.
That being said, it did not taste like fresh to me but it was very good.

I totally understand Kids are picky. I have two and when they go on cruises I am lucky if i get them to eat anything else but hotdogs.
Also I dont like Fresh Lemonade either. I thought this site was to help others with Cruising questions not to critique parenting skills.

I believe they have minute maid machines.

I am sorry if it came across that way but that is the same answer I would give a friend. The parents life would be easier if they didn't have to do 2 breakfast, 2 lunches 2 dinners etc.
And I did answer the OP's question.

It's like Minute Maid, actually I think that's who makes it. I had some lemonade mixed in with iced tea, it was good!

sometimes late night the machines may be down so maybe you want to bring a few packets just in case

Tammi- you don't have to explain yourself to anyone. We all raise our children the way WE want to. If that's what works for your family...then that's what works. The lemonade is not fresh. It was quite refreshing & your son will probably like it. They also had cranberry, apple & orange juice. Depending on your accomodations you may have a mini fridge. Bring one of those big cups w/ cover & fill it up as often as you like. Let me know if you have any other questions

I watched them refill it the other day when I was onboard and it comes from a Carton that they just pour into the machine. Definitely not freshly squeezed but still tasted pretty good.

My uncle Ned had the same situation with his son Jed (guess what Ned's father's name is- Starts with T)

Anyway, he liked a certain OJ so Ned told him it was that kind- in other words- he lied to him.
