gluten-free (Sort Of) On Holland America in Traveling with Celiac Disease Posted June 18, 2015 · Report to Admin I took a cruise on the MS Amsterdam, and as they recommended I contacted them about gluten-free food 90 days ahead of time. They sent me a form to fill out about what gluten-free items I wanted - pancakes, pizza crusts, bread, muffins, etc, for each day of the trip. So did I get that? Heck no. In the main (fancy) dining room I got 2 pieces of toasted gluten-free bread with each meal (and tough as nails - nobody took me up on my dare to eat it), but there was no sign of the stuff I requested, or of any way to ask for it. I would not have trusted the staff of the buffet to handle it safely anyway - no idea whether they had separate toasters, but I doubt it. I did get an offer of gluten-free pasta at one of the optional restaurants, but didn't take it. Clearly they were not in the gluten-free loop and that form I filled out was a sham. I managed to find safe food, but it certainly was limited. At least I didn't go home with the notorious cruise extra pounds. The main dining room staff seemed to mostly understand my needs, and gave me the next day's menu each night to pick out some items that they would check for me, so that was good, but the buffet was clueless. I will be contacting Holland America to tell them about this.
