I've taken several cruises in past years with several different lines and always enjoyed the dining experience. I now have Type II Diabetes and will soon be on the Star Princess to the Mexican Riviera. Can anyone tell me what kind of sugar-free desserts are offered by Princess? I understand every menu has something that is sugar-free but I wonder what I can expect--just a rubbery geletin mold or are they creative with a variety of good desserts?
You will be happy to know that the sugar-free deserts are available and are delicious. They are available in the diningroom for dinner and the variety changes each evening. Ususlly, there is some sort of cake and also a sugar-free ice cream. I am not a diabetic and I enloy the sugar free desserts more than the regular ones. The choices range from puddings, layer cakes chocolate or banana cream pie to strawberry short cake. All are very good.
At the buffets, there are no sugar free desserts placed out but if you ask any of the servers, they will go back and get you a selection.
No, they are creative about no sugar added desserts. I'm type II diabetic myself, but I wouldn't touch anything made with white flour or milk with a ten foot pole. Anything refined turns to sugar very quickly. The rubbery jello is quite safe. The internet is a source of low carbohydrate deserts, candies and cookies that don't interfere with blood sugar. Better to cheat once with a real dessert than to eat the so called sugar free variety which aren't sugar free by a long shot, just no refined sugar added. Or bring some of the really good chocolates available via your computer.
