Sweet Tea onboard?

So, this is a strange question.

Anyone know if they serve sweet tea on DCL (at dinner or otherwise)? Obviously they have soda, water, wine, etc.

The next questions would pretty much be for any southerners...if they do have sweet tea, is it any good?

Trying to determine if I need to bring some onboard with me.

Incase it matters: Disney Dream, 4 night, in April. Thanks!

No sweet tea, my DH's favorite drink, only unsweetened tea.

It was just unsweetened tea with sweetener packets on our last cruise. And honey, you and I both know you cannot make a decent glass of sweet tea with some dang sugar packet and cold unsweetened tea! That is not how it's done!

Oh boo! Looks like I'll have to pack at least 8 bottles of sweet tea. :P I can't stand the unsweet with added sweetener! I pretty much live off sweet tea.

Anyone know if they have Powerade? That's my backup...

I'm glad I asked!

I think you're out of luck there too.

Instead of bringing sweet tea have you thought about bringing sugar syrup? I find it works fairly well and will take up way less space - and weight.

I am from GA and I like my sweet tea and there is none to be found on the ship. Adding packets of sweetner does not make "sweet tea".

Pretty sure there isn't any powerade either.

No sweet tea for us Southerners? Well, bless our hearts! HA!

The classic look of the DCL ships leave me with the feeling I should be drinking proper English tea - but I usually end up with a fruity cocktail with a pineapple leaf.
