    Energy substances?

    by bodomdragon » Fri Jan 13, 2017 12:57 am

    I'm posting this also on Facebook but I think this thread might be of general interest here too.

    The lineup is getting fucking crazy so I see I won't be getting any sleep. I might need a little boost here. What legal substances can you recommend, that i can get onbroad, and will keep me awake and energized? I don't want to spend more money on Red Bull than on beer...

    Thanks!

    I've used ZippFizz http://www.zipfizz.com/ when I've been having trouble keeping my eyes open. It's pretty much natural, and it works well. I think the energy mostly comes from vitamin B-12 and caffeine from green tea. It tastes like Kool-Aid, but doesn't have much sugar in it. You can get a box of it at Costco (if you have access to that), and since it's in small tubes, it easy to carry a bunch of them.

    Interesting, thanks!! Can I find it in, let's say, regular shops/supermarkets? How easy to find is a Costco? I'm not american, and I will be landing in Miami on the 31st, so the best I can do is find a supermarket they day before we depart.

    Plus, Red Bull is just plain bad for you. I know a guy who drank it all day because he owned a production company and -- imagine that -- bands really like to put Red Bull in their contract riders, so he always had a lot of Red Bull handy. It damaged his esophagus so badly he had to be hospitalized. :shock:

    Coffee -- and lots of it -- would be the first, most obvious choice. Remember that the Promenade Cafe should have [fairly decent] coffee available 24 hours. For (presumably) stronger stuff, I thought there was a specialty coffee shop (Seattle's Best?) on the Promenade, but I don't see it on the deck plans at Royal's website or at http://www.cruisedeckplans.com, so maybe it was only on Liberty? :?

    I hate coffee, so I'll have to make do with Diet Coke. :twisted:

    The nearest Costco is in Orlando, pretty far away from FLL, plus you have to be a member to shop there. Sam's Club, another membership warehouse place, has a location in Doral, FL, which is south of Miami. Both had prices of around $1 per tube/serving. The price on Wal-Mart.com was $32 for 20 tubes. :shock:

    Wops... that doesn't help much, then. I bet I could visit a Walmart and get one of those boxes if my three roomates are interested in sharing :D

    I know coffee is always an option, but the one we have onbroad feels and tastes like dirty water to me, so I wonder how much caffeine I can find in one of those glasses... It is a good measure of last resort, but I'm trying to figure out if I can lay hands on something a little bit stronger.

    I've found that the "5 hour energy shots" that can be bought from pretty much anywhere in the US work well for me.

    http://5hourenergy.com/

    Taste hideous, but they do definitely keep me going to the small hours :)

    You can't get them on boad, but any convenience store, pharmacy etc in Fort Lauderdale or Miami sell them. I always buy half a dozen to keep me going :)

    Thanks! After everything I've read here and on Facebook, I think I'll definitely go for the 5 hour energy shots.

    What we did on the 2015 cruise was bring a duffle bag and put a case of water and a case of red bull in it. Checked it in no problem. Then used the duffle bag for dirty clothes. Worked out great. We will do the same this year

    I know red bull is bad for you, but this is an unusual situation. I don't drink it much at all otherwise.

    I tried dozens of pre-workout supplements for energy over the years. Nothing comes close to Mr. Hyde. I can drink a five hour energy shot and go to bed in a half hour. This? This will make you run through a brick wall.

    Uh, what? There's a Costco at University and 595, less than 10 miles directly west of the port. Sam's Club has a location in Sunrise about 20 minutes from the port.

    Any suggestions for something that isn't Red Bull? I'm interested, although I have a pretty low tolerance for the taste of energy drinks.

    FWIW, I typically invest in a couple of the boat specialty coffees. Completely worth the money. I also brush off the yoga nidra practice, and while the claims that it's as good as 4 hours' sleep are total bs, it's actually a good way to feel rested if you have a short break between sets. Yes, I realize that admitting this makes me a complete hippie :lol:

    Weird. I checked both Costco and Sam's Club's websites for their locations near FLL and Miami and they coughed up those locations I mentioned. I thought it was weird that neither club had more than 3 locations in S. Florida, though.

    (I think Liberty might have had a free-standing Seattle's Best, then. I'd swear I remember it from somewhere.....)

    The "Refreshment" drink package -- which was offered last year to us along with the "just-soda" package -- includes premium coffees and teas for free, as well as bottled still and sparkling waters, fresh-squeezed orange juice, non-alcoholic cocktails, and sodas plus the souvenir soda cup. Royal's site doesn't mention if energy drinks are included, but they might be. That might not be a bad way to go.

    Google "polyphasic sleep schedule" -- essentially a 20 min nap every 4 hours. (having an inside cabin helps!)

    Also, if you cut out the caffeine and energy drinks now, they'll have much more of an effect by the time we get on the boat.

    I bringing a bottle of liquid B-12 drops and will eat a carb limited diet on the ship.Stay away from the Pizza ,eat eggs ,salmon and fresh fruits as much as you can,I still do coffee but not in the morning to wake up,maybe some at 2 in the afternoon on.I don't ever drink soda or any energy drinks.They tear up my stomach,never any pain relievers or antacids neither.Your stomach bacteria in balance is a big part of mental energy.

    I dunno, my secret to staying awake is constantly being drunk :shock:
    Having a good breakfast is key, but afterwards I just keep drinking beer and cider all day, staying drunk but not getting shitfaced. That way I don't have any problems staying awake but also don't have any problems falling asleep once I'm back at the cabin.

    Is coffee included onbroad or is just food in the buffet style restaurant?

    I'm sure I saw somewhere that there are coffee packages (and soft drinks packages for that matter)

    Are none of these included?

    Edit: I saw Pellaz's post about talking about these .

    After looking though some posts I found the reason for th "Cafe Select " card ,RC removed the coffee drinks from their unlimited beverage package.Here is a blog with a picture of the punch card http://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/categ ... /starbucks ,it is a bit confusing because The Cafe Select card cannot be used at an actual Starbucks kiosk,which the Independence of The Seas doesn't have.

    Just to clear up any confusion, only specialty coffees carry a fee. Those are purchased at the Cafe Promenade counter. Your basic coffee is covered in the cost of your cabin. Cafe Promenade has a self serve coffee setup like you'd find in most hotels available 24 hours a day. There are also stations at the Windjammer Cafe and I believe Sorrentos Pizza. Not sure if anywhere else has it.
    I should get around to updating my signature

    I tried dozens of pre-workout supplements for energy over the years. Nothing comes close to Mr. Hyde. I can drink a five hour energy shot and go to bed in a half hour. This? This will make you run through a brick wall.


    Do you take this for energy only sans workout ever? Curious

    Any suggestions for something that isn't Red Bull? I'm interested, although I have a pretty low tolerance for the taste of energy drinks.

    FWIW, I typically invest in a couple of the boat specialty coffees. Completely worth the money. I also brush off the yoga nidra practice, and while the claims that it's as good as 4 hours' sleep are total bs, it's actually a good way to feel rested if you have a short break between sets. Yes, I realize that admitting this makes me a complete hippie :lol:

    Tell us about this yoga nidra, dude


    I Google imaged it. All I saw was people on lying down on their backs. I think Yoga Nidra is just fancy words for a nap.


    Basically it's meditation... or a nap if you fall asleep ;).

    I know red bull is bad for you, but this is an unusual situation. I don't drink it much at all otherwise.


    Are we allowed to bring water/canned soda with us onboard? Or were you lucky with getting it through?
