In Topic: Good Gluten Free Cruise Experiences?

18 January 2009 - 01:41 PM

I haven't had a bad experience, but I can add that I've had a good experience on Princess lines. I've sailed twice since knowing about my gluten intolerance, and they've been very good each time. Before the cruise I fax them a letter with my request for gluten free diet, and when I get on board, see the maitr'd the first day. Like another poster said, they'll go over the next day's menu with you and can make just about anything gluten free. THey even had pasta for me last time. It is MUCH easier if you eat in the traditional dining room with set seating and wait staff, but I've always had what Princess calls "Anytime Dining" and have been well taken care of. The buffet is risky, but if you befriend one of the staff there, they can point out what you should avoid, as happened on one of my cruises, so I was able to eat at the buffet with my friend who REALLY LOVES buffets, lol.

I haven't sailed Disney yet, but very much want to. The Travel Channel has a 1 hour show on the Disney line, and it looks like a great experience. The Disney folks are very knowledgeable about food allergies and Celiac.

I stayed at Port Orlean's in Disneyworld. They don't have a table service restaurant, but the food court had a head chef who was VERY helpful for me. They can make gluten free pancakes with real maple syrup. They were very knowledgeable about food allergies and about celiac.

In Disneyland, we stayed off property...fortunately I had good luck with that except for one day, but we ate mostly in the park anyway, and that was also a good experience.

Sorry Philibuster, I haven't any experience with that. I think in general a colon cleanse once in a while is probably a good thing, especially for those of us with bowel problems, but I have no data on that.

Yeah, I decided a while ago to not post too many details about what goes on with me. Which is one reason why I haven't posted the name of the procedure they did for fixing the floppy intestines, lol. It's an unusal word and if someone (like me) does a search on it this thread will come up.

On a different note. I was really sick again yesterday. My surgeon is referring me back to my gastroenterologist for more testing and to check the ducts. Not sure what is involved with that, but I'm thinking it's probably an endoscopy. I see him Friday.

Both of mine are just even with the joint. I don't have a formal diagnosis of Celiac because by the time I had the blood testing and biopsy I had been gluten free for 6 months, but I do have a diagnosis of gluten intolerance.
