NONE OF THEM. Those diuretics are extrememly hard on your kidneys. Have you tried a low sodium diet and natural diuretics before? Here is a list of some you should try first. IMO, the best way to go is include these foods into your diet, and add in Green Tea Extract and Dandelion.

LOL! A diuretic isn't going to make you look your best. Just eat healthy and your body's natural balance will be correct.

I wouldn't use a diuretic to "look good on a cruise." The only instance I would recommend one is in the days before a contest/show.
