Gluten Free Dining On Cruise

Recommended Posts

I just returned from my first cruise! I always wanted to try cruising, but since being diagnosed with celiac disease, was leery of what my dining options would be.

We went with Norwegian Cruise Line and I had the best experience! The chefs on board got to know me and came out with freshly toasted gluten-free bread when I sat down to eat! I never ate at the buffet, although our kids loved it. I did bring a loaf of Udi's bread with me as well as peanut butter and jelly to make sandwiches for my lunch when we were docked at the Bahamas. NCL also suggest letting them know ahead of time what your dietary requirements were. I emailed, but ended up calling. It didn't seem to be an issue with them at all and the waiter told me that they had someone else who needed a gluten-free diet on the previous cruise. I am also happy to say I did not get sick and we cannot wait for our next cruise!

June 2003-saw Chiropractor who specialized in nutrition: Celiac Disease not Lactose Intolerance, went gluten free with once in awhile cheating, off soy and dairy for about 6 months

June 2003-found excellent doctor for fibromyalgia (who has found out she has Celiac Disease)
