Default Silly Question

This may sound silly but can you get honey for your hot tea on board or should I bring my own. I can get honey sticks at the farmers market to bring with if it's going to be a hassle getting it on the ship. The sticks are easy to just throw in my luggage but if I can get it on board I won’t bother to buy any.

I am a big tea drinker, but not with honey. If you find out they have none, and I bet they do... go to the travel area in your drug store,and get a small plastic travel bottle,and depending on your usage of the honey, I am sure there are a range of sizes, one small enough to fit in your purse at dinner.

I've only seen honey at breakfast in the MDR.

I'd take the drops.

BTW-good idea, I may consider that myself although I don't drink tea that often.

Can anyone supply more info on the drops? I'm not big on tea, but I do get an allergic tickle cough and honey works like a charm. Don't want to carry around a jar of honey, but drops would be good.
Thanks,
Marty

I found the drops by googling Honees. They sell them on several websites for pretty cheap. This website is a good one for lots of little things like that...

As a beekeeper I will always warn folks to watch any honey they buy, make sure it is produced in the United States...and always try to buy from a local beekeeper for even more benefits to using honey…

Thank you Krista,
They were a tad cheaper than I had found elsewhere, although the shipping was pretty over the top. But, if it keeps me from coughing, I'm okay with that!
