I'm planning my next cruise in November 2012 (Carnival Valor) but I'm a little worried about what I will be able to eat. Since September of last year I have been vegan about 90% of the time, the other 10% I'm strict vegetarian (no meat ever not even fish). I "slip" up on eggs and dairy usually. I wouldn't mind eating strict vegetarian on the cruise but would prefer vegan. Any advice? Should I inform my head waiter, what if we do "your time dining", how will the buffets stack up, what about late night eating like pizza!! Oh my what am I going to do.
