Carnival Cruises

Hi Guys,

My hubby's family does a October cruise every year to mexico out of cali and always uses carnival. I tried to get them to use Royal Caribbean, but apparently they don't do this cruise anymore.

My fear is the I have read some bad feedback on carnival. Anyone use them recently? This would be my first cruise. I don't really want to go to begin with, but I am feeling pressured as we are the only members that don't go each year. I guess there is about 40 people total.

I am going to call them, but sales people lie (sorry they do), I need honest feedback on ya'all's experiences with this line? Recent ones? Are they getting better? I hear that they don't make bread or pasta like the others, but pretty much tell you were the salad and fruit are?

Thanks all!! *hugs* B)

My family just did a cruise with Disney and for the most part I had a wonderful experience. I simple asked a lot of questions, no one made me feel silly or stupid. I knew in advance that they would not have certain items so I brought some things with me (small items that I could carry). I also sent them an email in advance with my diet information so that they could be 'ready'. It worked well and I did not get "sick".

I am certain if you do the same with Carnival it will work out well.

It was 5 years ago but I had success on Carnival. They allowed me to bring in food so I had a lot of gluten-free snacks, bagels and muffins etc. In the morning they heated them up for me.

I met with the Matre D on the first night and explained the situation and he hooked me up with someone else. I don't remember the title she had but each night she would give me the menu for the next evening and I would select my meal and they would prepare it gluten-free. At that time they didn't have any gluten-free pasta or anything like that but I just stuck to grilled chicken, fish and steaks.

With the outside BBQ all of the hot dogs and hamburgers etc were cooked separate then the buns so I felt comfortable getting those and the fries where the only thing being cooked in the fryers.

You should contact them to see if there have been any changes.

Good luck and enjoy.

Our family went on a Carnival Cruise last August and I notified them ahead of time that I needed foods that were gluten free.

I was shocked, not only did they follow through with gluten free meals, but they tasted good. The matri/host was wonderful.

And the fresh baked bread made gluten free was good. I did not eat outside of the dining halls. Did not want to take a chance

on ruining my cruise. But I was extremely surprised how well the food was in the dining area and did not get sick at all.

Oh, I did take my own snack foods, like crackers and candy and chips.
