Powerade or Gatorade on ship?

Recommended Posts

Will be sailing on the Allure of the Seas in January and wondering if they sell Powerade or Gatorade on the ship?  If not, can we bring our own?  Due to my condition and dehydrating easily, my doctor suggested I drink at least one bottle per day.  Thanks

DH swears by his daily G2 (Gatorade), but when we sail he has come to accept Powerade instead.

I love the G2 plus it’s less sugar. I found individual packs of G2 powder on Amazon. I’m taking it with me on cruise this Monday. I dehydrated easily this I can stick in my pocket just add to bottle of water.

Powerade/Powerade Zero is in the freestyle machines.

I just took some small Gatorades with me for the excursions knowing how hot it would be.  It's easy in a rolling carry-on and then I come back with lighter luggage.

 

Enjoy your cruise!

Both are nasty and overloaded with electrolytes and sugar.

 

I use a product designed for industrial heat stress issues.  Lower in sodium, high in potassium, and overall lower in electrolytes so you body can more readily absorb it.   The package I use is NO sugar.  One package is added to one bottle of water (500 - 600 ml bottle), shake, drink.

 

It is called Sqwincher, and the version I use is the Quik Stik.  Available from Amazon.

 

I am a bit confused, why you need electrolyte replacement for dehydration, and not just water?  But I find this makes the water easier to drink.  I especially appreciated carrying it in Djibouti last July.  When it was 120 degrees.
