Looking for enhanced flavored waters on Escape ....

Recommended Posts

Good morning!  Since we are unable to bring our own waters onboard with us on the Escape (bummer) and I already know that Vitamin Zero Water (a Coke product) is not available, can anyone tell me what type of lo-cal flavored waters might be available for purchase?  I need potassium enriched, possibly Propel or something along those lines?   Any ideas would be appreciated!!  Thanks!

There is free flavored water in dispensers in the buffet.

If you can't live without, just bring your own powdered mixers on board and make your own.

Propel does sell packets that you can add to your water that contain potassium -- and quite a bit of sodium.  We might try bringing some of those on board too, as my husband drinks a lot of propel at home.

They are heavily sweetened and they are terrible.

Well, I find propel to be heavily sweetened and terrible. I like my water plain (and lots of it), the rest all taste the same to me (bad).

I love them.  One of my favorite things on NCL.

Well, OK.  I guess a lot of people drink them or they wouldn't put them out.  I suppose there are people who like and dislike just about every food and drink item NCL offers.  I will tolerate the Iced tea out of the dispensers, but that's about it.  I will usually get a diet Pepsi from the buffet bar.

I always bring propel packets and mix up my own.  Never been a problem.

I carry MiO branded water enhancers whenever I travel.  They have a flavor line, energy line, and electrolyte line.

Propel does sell the "drop ins" (powder), or there are some others that are a liquid drop.  Check your local supermarket with the ice tea/coffee/juice aisles 🙂

There is plenty of sodium in the ship's water and the food.

Thank you but it’s not the sodium I am looking for.  I have been running low in potassium and even though I’m taking supplements, I had found a particular Vitamin Zero Water that has potassium in it.  My dr has been testing me monthly.

Thank you for your help, I’ll look into some of the drop options.  Guess I have just gotten spoiled carrying my drinks with me, and forgot I couldn’t this trip.

A coworker of mine has issues with low potassium. He started using this and it helped him raise it back to normal levels

I saw on a menu somewhere  'sobe life water" it does contain potassium. I have also seen at stores. You could check it out before the trip. It's not cheap on the ship. Also don't know if they still have it.

When I keep seeing this topic, I answer in my mind with “wine is an enhanced flavored water” but alas, that’s not what you’re going for...

 

have you tried the mio squeeze bottles?

I was finally able to contact NCL and get permission to bring the water on board with me.  Thank you for finding out that Sobe is sold on ship at least.  I am now good to go!!!  Appreciate everyone’s help and input.

That’s so funny, but I’m such a lightweight I wouldn’t remember much of the trip!! Lol! 

 

I finally reached out to NCL and received permission to bring my water onboard.  Thank you for the laugh!

Try mixing Unsweeten IceTea (2/3) with either lemonade or those flavored water (1/3) and it taste actually pretty good.
