Default Gluten free diet???

We're sailing with friends on the Radiance on Jan. 28th. Can anyone
tell me if you have had any trouble getting a gluten free diet on
RCI? One of our cruisers has to be on this diet.

I doubt that a gluten free diet will be much of a problem. All of the cruise lines offer enough choices so it should not be a problem to find something that's free of wheat flour and other sources of gluten. Your friend can always order his meat without gravy or sauce if there's doubt, and the main dining room always ice cream if he can't eat any of the other desserts. They also have a variety of breads, so one or another should be free of gluten.

Have a wonderful cruise!

Norm.

One of our tablemates had this diet problem and the waiter was very knowledgable on the "Serenade." If the waiter had seemed at all hesitant, we would have made sure the Head Waiter was consulted before ordering.

Hi Lou,

From the RCI website:

Quote:
What type of special meals does Royal Caribbean offer?
Royal Caribbean International makes every effort to accommodate our guests' dietary requirements whenever possible. We can accommodate special needs such as, Food Allergies, Gluten-free, Vegetarian (except for vegan/macrobiotic) Low-fat, Low-Sodium,
lactose-free/Soy Milk, Ensure, and Kosher meals at no extra charge. All guests must do is notify us at least 45 days prior to sailing. Here's how it works:

Send an email that includes the guests' names, reservation ID number, ship's name and voyage date to one of the addresses listed below.

Food allergies - foodallergies@rccl.com

Kosher meals - kosher@rccl.com

Indian-style vegetarian meals - Indianvegetarian@rccl.com

Gluten-free/celiac meals - glutenfree@rccl.com

Fax requests may be sent to 305-539-6018 Attn: Special Meals Request

E-mails will receive an automated response. Faxed requests will also receive a response provided the guest provides an email address. We kindly ask that guests do not call Royal Caribbean International suppliers with specific questions.

Special meal requests that are faxed or e-mailed less 45 days of sailing are dependent on the ship's product availability. We will try to accommodate to the best of our ability.
Here's the link:

It looks like RCI is very good at providing for special diets!

Thanks Fern for the email adresses. I'm sure my friend
will now have no trouble and might possibly be able to enjoy
a greater variety of foods. Plain grilled steak and chicken
can get old after awhile.

Thanks so much.

Lou
