Default Diabetic questions

Does each cabin have a small refrigerator? I need to keep my insulin cold. And what about used needles, are there receptacles? Do any of dining options offer sugar free or low carb delights in the forms of desserts, etc?

Depends on the cruiseline when it comes to fridges. Princess always has a fridge. Don't know about the needles issue. I'm sure each cruiseline will do their best to try to accommodate, if you inform them well ahead.

There are always options for dieters and again notify the cruiseline ahead for any special dietary needs. I'd talk to the Maitre D upon embarkation as well.

The Purser..err..Guest Services desk can give you one.

Yes there are "Spa" marked deserts. You can check the daily menu outside your dining room early in the day to see if they will have what you want.
