Cruise swelling??? Anyone else???
The cruise weight gain thread got me wondering if anyone else has problems with swelling while cruising. I don't know what causes DH & me to swell up so much whenever we cruise. We've speculated it's the cuisine we normally don't eat (volume & variety) or the abundant adult beverages we normally don't consume. On our last 2 cruises we made a concerted effort to drink plenty of water and even munched the awesome ice bits in lieu of more ice cream. My feet still were miserably swollen and my heels at dinner had my poor hoofs screaming at me. Not an exaggeration: I look like I have Fred Flintstone feet when this swelling occurs. And it has happened on every cruise we've taken regardless of our various efforts. Soooooo, I'm actually thinking of buying some diuretics to try on our upcoming voyage. I don't know what else to do.
Seems like I read a thread a few years ago on Cruise Critic that mentioned cruise swelling. I'm curious if anyone here has noticed it and what you may have done to avoid or relieve it.
