Where ?

So DH and I are celebrating our 30th anniversary this summer. I was thinking Punta Cana, Aruba or another cruise (been on 9). I know the cruises are very safe food wise, not so sure about the other 2 and an all inclusive. Any suggestions, I have been to neither and this is our first big vacation being gluten-free. Just realized I'm 6 months free next week. Yip, Yip hooray.
Appreciate any suggestions, thanks

Hubby and I are planning a 3 night getaway to Newport in 2 weeks. I have searched old boards for suggestions and found some new ones that offer gluten-free menu's. Does anyone have any new suggestions?
Thanks all.

I'm 4 months gluten-free and have made our home gluten-free (no chance of cc).

I started feeling crappy late last week, tummy issues Fri, Sat and Sun. Thought maybe I had beer Fri and Sat and ate out Saturday night(restaurant always accommodating with my gluten-free). Monday and still today have had severe bathroom issues, yesterday and today bad stomach, nausea, brain fog feels like I got smacked in the head with a frying pan and that horrible felling I had before being diagnosed. Excessive itching since Saturday on my legs ( have made myself bleed and have small scabs on my legs).

I racked my head yesterday and today, what bit me hard? I know I was gluten what is it? This is the first issues I had, I am so careful and eat whole foods everyday.

My mail away pharmacy changed Labs on my genetic Blood Pressure medication, I been on this same medication for 2 years. I called the drug manufacture several times and they never got back to me, wanted to see the ingredients on this med.

Called my GP and had them write a 30 day scrip for the name brand. Which my insurance will not cover so now instead of $10 a month mail away for generic it's going to cost me $108 per month for name brand ( which my second BP med cost me $62 a month)and I have good health insurance. Doubting my self when I got home from the drugstore I counted the 90 supply bottle I opened last week. Yep I have 83 pills left which are now in the kitty litter garbage. It wasn't in my head or stomach issues, it was the medication lab change. I feel like crap and didn't even indulge in a forbidden food.

Please, be careful if you are maintenance meds and use generic each month, always check they have not changed Labs. Generic brands are had to trace ingredients, there are so many labs in so many countries and it's had to trace.

Tony Di Napoli 43rd St. What an awesome meal yesterday. I called ahead 4 weeks ago and mentioned I had gluten free and vegetarians dining, no problem we have gluten-free pasta and vegetables. Called yesterday morning to confirm the reservation and gluten-free. Waitress was very educated and before I could ask she was spot on, you can't have that or you can. I did the ordering for our party of 6. Waitress placed all gluten-free platters in front of me and other platters at the other end of the table. Beautiful carefree meal, service is great and most importantly I felt safe what I was eating.
