Princess Cruises - Amazing Experience

04 September 2010 - 12:19 PM

Hi all,

I just got back from a week's cruise to Alaska on the Diamond Princess. It was an absolutely *amazing* experience (both the trip and the food!!). I have never had a better gluten-free eating experience!

We told them a month in advance that I needed a gluten-free diet (required so that they know how much to buy, I think), but I was so nervous at dinner the first night! We had selected "anytime dining", which lets you choose to eat at any time in any of the restaurants on board. But when I told my waiter, he immediately called over a head waiter/manager, who was so great! He went through the menu with me, and brought over some special gluten-free bread. The easiest for them was for me to "order" a day in advance what I wanted to eat. I could have gone to any of the other restaurants, but had such a great experience with him that I went back to that one the entire cruise! They had amazing french toast -- prob the best gluten-free french toast I've ever had -- and pancakes. The head waiter would bring me over special "treats" -- gluten-free muffins, special desserts, etc! And he was so nice about it -- he really made me feel like we were getting special treatment because of eating gluten-free, instead of the mild irritation I usually get ;)

I haven't tried any of the other cruise lines, but just wanted to put my plug in for them since they were so fantastic!! (and the food was *amazing*!)

Mark Bittman just posted a new recipe on the NY Times -- and it's gluten-free!
