i just booked a cruise for my honeymoon and you need to let the cruise line know that you have dietary restrictions and they will be more then happy to help you.

DH and I did Carnival, and it was OK. The food was fine, but we're married w/o kids, and the entire ship was a childcare madhouse, as this is the most affordable cruise line. Next month we're going on Royal Carribean, and we've talked to them about DH's diet, they can handle his Celiac's, but don't have a box to check for my dairy allergy, so I maybe really bloated and migraine prone. Hopefully after I get there, I'll be able to get more info about dairy.

ETA- whoops, meant we're going on Norwegian, not Royal Carribean.

I went on a cruise using Royal Carribean last year. Our travel agent screwed up and didn't make it clear that I needed a gluten-free diet but it was handeled VERY WELL once I got on board. The food was great and if there was nothing on the menu or even desert menu that I could eat they would make something special. They even had gluten-free bread sitting on our table when we went to dinner. It was really cool. I had to eat all my meals in the dinnimg room but they handled it very well!!

Well... we are looking at Carnival... but I guess I now fit in there because I have a little one. My hubby and I went on a RC cruise two years ago and it was great. (We didn't have to deal with any food restrictions, though). We vaca in September (we like this time because of all the kids in school and it is too soon for school breaks, so not kiddy central). There were a few kids but not like it could have been.

Thank you all for your opinions. If anyone has any other thoughts, please share!

    • George, i am sorry that you are not feeling well!  ☹️  I am not a doctor, but just trying out drugs to stop your symptoms just seems like a band aid  approach.  It sounds like he suspects IBS which is really, in my opinion, "I be stumped".  Has inflammatory bowel disorder (IBD) (more lovely autoimmune disorders) been ruled out?  This includes both Crohn's and Colitis.  My niece was diagnosed with Crohn's finally with a pill camera after all other tests were given.  The damage was not within reach of any scope.  I am just throwing out suggestions.  Hopefully, you and your doctor will figure it out soon!  
    • Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that happens to have a known trigger -- gluten.  Flare-ups develop  (antibodies) causing damage. Not just in the small intestine, but systemically.  One gluten exposure can cause antibodies to increase for days or months!   Antibodies are being measured during the celiac blood tests.   If there is no gluten exposure, there will be no antibodies.  These antibodies can come down in some people in as little as two weeks.  Recommendations require gluten 2 to 4 weeks daily for the biopsies taken via endoscopy in order to be sure to catch damage, but 8 to 12 weeks for the blood tests.   The endoscopy is considered the "gold standard" in helping to diagnose celiac disease, but there are other things that can damage the small intestine.  So, the blood test helps solidify the diagnosis.   So, if you want a good result on your endoscopy, you need to be eating gluten daily for two week prior at a minimum.  I know it is tough and you are feeling sick.  Wish there was a better way to catch active celiac disease.    
    • Hi everyone, Just an update to my situation.  I had thought that I might be getting better since I started adding gluten-free grain back into my diet but I was wrong.  It seems that the Methscopalamine Bromide just delayed the effects, didn't stop them.  I had to stop taking it because one of the side effects is to stop sweating, which I did.  There were times when I felt hot and almost couldn't catch my breath.  Anyway, my doc put me on Viberzi instead.  I took 3 doses, 1 Tuesday evening and then 1 Wednesday morning and then again Wednesday evening.  Each time I took 1, it seemed that about half an hour later I would develop severe abdominal cramping, pain in my neck, shoulders and upper back and a feeling like my insides were on fire.  My face felt like it was hot and tingling.  It wasn't warm to the touch but felt like it to me.  Worse of all is it didn't work anyway, I still had diarrhea.  I stopped taking Viberzi after reading the precautions pamphlet which said, "stop taking Viberzi and tell your doctor if you have abdominal cramping, pain which radiates to your shoulders or upper back."  Go figure.  Anyway, today is 3 weeks straight of diarrhea and still no diagnosis and not sure what he's going to want to do next. George 
    • I'm still really new to all this but is it common to have trouble with sleep? I swear since my symptoms got really bad a few months ago I can't get 1 good nights sleep, like a 5 hour stretch is doing real good. Wake up at 3am wide awake almost every night. Told my doctor and they've recommended melatonin, that doesn't work. Tried chamomile and lavender tea, no help. Tried zzquil, that will knock me out but maybe for like an extra hour then I'm really drowsy the next morning from it. I don't know what to do.
