But some cruise lines also offer Guava Juice... It's really Great!

 

I am a fan of Guava Juice as well.  The larger HAL ships seem to stock in for breakfast in the Lido Restaurant.  Ships like the Volendam, I have yet to find it.

 

Cannot get it where I live, even working with a specialty grocer.  Same thing with a delicious  cheese that I enjoyed made in Tasmania.  Speaking to the Manager about these items, one would have thought that I had recently arrived from the Star Trek's Enterprise.

Hi rakcruiser,

I am not sure if you can get a brand called Goya but they have Guava in a quart container size.

 

Also Libby makes Guava in cans.. Do get it if you can...So Delicious

Hi RK,

 

Just go to a Hispanic grocery.  You will find plenty of guava juice as well as mango, papaya, passion fruit, peach, apricot, etc.

What a great suggestion!  I have already Googled and Yelp does show several such stores.  Most seem to be connected to a restaurant and most seem to be Mexican oriented.  I will need to spend some time on the phone with these establishments if they have what I would like.

 

Thanks!

Hey RK,

 

How do you think I make all those great Tiki drinks? 🤪

If you have an Aldi they also usually have a decent Latin Foods section.

Oooh, guava! I'll have to ask for that the next time I'm on HAL! I usually eat in the MDR, unless I'm going on an excursion and then it's room service....

My usual is pineapple juice.

Guava is also my favorite but hard to find on a Cunard Ship.

 

So we stay for the usual Cranberry, Apple or Prune if the need arises.

Locally, what I have been able to buy from an upscale grocery is a product of Spain, produced by a Swiss Company under the Hero brand.  It's a Guava Nectar that is, I think, slightly "thicker" than the juice that I have had on a HAL ship.  (Probably, HAL diluted the puree to make it more "juicy"?)  Whatever, it is delicious and is as close as I am going to get to drink that juice locally.

 

The larger HAL ships have a wider variety of juices available in the Lido Restaurant than ships such as Volendam and Zaandam.  Even on the larger vessels in the MDR for breakfast when I have asked for such--and I knew Guava Juice was available in the Lido Restaurant--not available was the response.

I can get Guava anytime I would like from a brand called Goya. They have many juices that are exactly as you describe. thick in nature which is of a puree level.

 

Mango, Pineapple, Peach, Passion Fruit and Guanabana to name them. You will not see any loss of consistency.

 

I was first introduced to Guava in Hawaii on vacation at breakfast and been in love with it and glad available anytime.

The Goya I have found is not pure juice...its second ingredient, after water, is High Fructose Corn Syrup. Ew. I do not mind the water, but I draw the line at HFCS. Even a little cane sugar I could forgive...but certainly not as the second ingredient!

Since it is hard to get pure guava juice we enjoy what is available at the time.

Except if you vacation in Dominica.

This juice tasted just like what was offered in Hawaii the first time.

Many products on the market are doctored....

Bon Voyage....

My grocer also have these with the Hero brand.  Purees all of them; have not tried any of them other than Guava  I do suspect that whatever Guava juice that I have enjoyed on HAL has been diluted.  Its consistency is just a bit different than what I pour out of the bottle.

Totally agree with you. Everything is altered except if you make your own with the fresh fruit. I never pureed Guava. Maybe one day I will try. Bet u I will have to dilute it and add sweeter a bit.

That would be an interesting experiment.  The Guava Puree that comes out of the bottle needs nothing added to sweeten it.  

 

Maybe because it is imported from Spain, a bottle costs about $2.00 more than a carton of OJ like Florida's Natural.  Worth the price to me.  I get tired of OJ, Tomato Juice, V-8 every morning.

Dad use to like Tomato Juice and V-8 as well as my DW for V-8.

 

Because of Gastric Problems I have to watch OJ. Love It!. Just not that often but will have it once in a while. Will have a glass and then rest turn it into a Orangeade (with water)...

I used to have those issues.  Was a regular purchaser of Gaviscon.  Mentioned this to my PCP during an annual physical, he sent me to a gastrointestinal specialist and he diagnosed Barrett's Esophagus.  Prescribed a medicine that I continue to take daily.  Yearly checks on the Esophagus' condition show that it's stable.  A CAT Scan that I had in early July for a different issue reported that the Esophagus was "unremarkable", so it remains in acceptable condition.  Thanks to that medicine, no more Gaviscon!

We are or were in the boat sort of.

 

I too have BE being treated with a morning med and bedtime med. BE as of the last 2 endo's. New GI now and see what the next endo will show and advice. DW is on Gav now with same GI guy.

 

But like everyone else would like to enjoy all future trips, OJ, Cranberry or whatever.

Best wishes for a positive report.  I HATE those exams and was very pleased when my recent CAT Scan had the "unremarkable" comment about the condition of my Esophagus.  

 

At my age, I am done with such exams.  What's the point?  It enriches the medical personnel that do them and increases the costs charged to my medical insurance which then could have an impact on the cost of my health insurance.
