Default Special Food Requests - Low Sodium Diet

My father has been placed on a low sodium diet due to, "Doctor's Orders," resulting from 2 heart attacks. He is taking my entire family on a cruise in July. We are sailing on the non-smoking Paradise. Since food is prepared for thousands, is a ship capable of preparing low sodium diet meals??? Who would we contact - what is the procedure for communicating this request?? I am sure my dad is not the only one out there...

Thanks for you input and suggestions

Any diet can be accommodated, and your TA knows this, have them make the arrangements.

Have your TA notify the cruise line via their special needs department; and then follow up with the maitre'd once on board. I have seen the wait staff bend over backwards to help people with special diets, even to the point of bringing the next nights menu out and going over menu items with the passenger involved. They will do all they can to accomodate your Dad.

Would it be possible to talk to the cruiselines about a wheat free diet as well or not? I am going on the cruisemates Spirit cruise.

Thanks mbuckellew I'll do that. I mean it is worth a try anyway. I usually find something to eat but other times it can be hard.
