Princess Cruise

Recommended Posts

We are going on a Princess Cruise over Christmas and were wondering if we were allowed to take food on the ship. We have faxed them about our special needs, but were wondering about snacks. If anyone knows anything that can help we would appreciate it.

I'm glad you posted this question. I went on an 11 day cruise last year (another cruise line) and inquired ahead of time about passengers with special diet needs. At that time I was lactose intolerant, and was told they had a lactose free menu. Not true!! The maitre' d and waiter tried very, very hard to accomodate my food needs, but everything on the menu had lactose in it. I was sick the entire time. I was able to get some soy milk for about 3 days, but after that, there was none. I existed on hamburger patty, salad, chips, jello, gatorade, fruit. 50% of the price of a cruise is for food, and I certainly was short changed. Since the cruise, I have been diagnosed with celiac,casein,soy issues in addition to the lactose intolerance. Would I go on a cruise again? definately yes, only under different circumstances. I would bring along a suitcase of "my" food. And I would make sure I would have access to boiling hot water, or a small microwave somewhere on the ship so I can prepare some food. I don't know if this would be allowed, but it is time to find out, because I intend to cruise again. It will be interesting to see what the replies will be.

Can you tell us which cruise line it was? It is helpful to know who is good with special diets and who isn't.

Thanks!
