We are planning a cruise in September and cannot decide between Royal Caribbean (for its onboard activities) and Carnival (cheaper therefore would book balcony rooms). I'm wondering which is easier for gluten-free travel? Both DD and myself are gluten-free, and I especially want her to have fun!

We just returned from a cruise on Norwegian and it went great. We are all gluten-free and my kids are also soy free, dairy free, and artificial additive free and they handled it beautifully. We didn't do the buffet except a couple times when the kids were hungry between meals and they had a hamburger no bun and potato chips. That went fine. Otherwise, we ate in the main dining room and ordered our meals the night before. We always had room service for breakfast and we just wrote in what we wanted and they brought it (mostly gluten-free waffles!)
While I was researching, it seemed that all of the cruise lines can do gluten-free now. If it were me, I would go with the balcony. We spent so much time out there just sitting, napping, reading, or eating breakfast. It added a lot to our experience, especially since the cabins can be so small.

We are going on a cruise in September on RCI also on the Oasis of the Seas. Having been on a cruise with RCI once before we were impressed with how they handled gluten free on the ship. My teenage daughter is the celiac and she had plenty of food to choose from and they made her gluten free pancakes and french toast for breakfast if she wanted it. Each evening they would bring her the next nights menu and she would point out what she would like and they made a gluten free version for her. She didn't choose the items that were obviously difficult to make gluten free such as those with pastry but many of them items on the menu could be adapted.

Which ship are you going on?
