We have just come back from a cruise on the Independence of the seas and a lady on our dining table also requested gluten free food. The chice was very limited and the gluten free bread could only be decribed as like eating a slice of cake made of sand.
She was shown the next days menu the night before to place a suitable order, which would be prepared accordingly.
Hope that helps.
Sounds about par for the course for gluten free bread to be honest. I usually don't bother with the horrid stuff. It isn't great to know that the choice is limited - P&O spoilt me rotten and I had a huge choice, often better than the others at my table!
Yes, they do. Need to write to firstname.lastname@example.org to request it.
No they don't!
Here is a direct quote from their letter to me:
"Please be advised we do not offer a gluten menu onboard"
[Coeliac] "Guests can bring on their own store-bought salad dressings, cookies, crackers, pretty much anything that is dry and non-perishable.".
This website is a joke - i post a perfectly good email address for the department at RCI that deals with special meal requests and it gets blocked. I am trying to help but this fustrates the heck out of me.
Thank you for your time and trouble. I have sent RCI an email (over a week ago) but not received an answer. I'll resend my email incase it has been caught up in their spam filter.
Aha it is there now - see post below!
Answer received from RCI - they can not guarantee that gluten free will be an option but will try to provide this.
Not much good to me I'm afraid as being coeliac my life depends on adherence to a strictly gluten free diet.
