Neil & Ida Down - Answered a Question by clarke (01 Dec 08 20:28)

I am not a coeliac but am very aware of this condition and as no one else has answered yet I thought I would just say that RCI are not the best cruise line in supplying dietary needs for this complaint and other cruise lines have been known to provide better like P&O. I am assuming that the ship was made aware of your husbands needs before you left and that it wasn't a last minute thing telling them. As I understand it many of the American run cruise lines do not like to say yes we'll supply what you want because of the litigation which can occur if it goes wrong. Nothing much positive there I'm afraid, a lot boils down to the guys serving you and the higher up you can appeal the better it normally gets, so butter up your Asst. Maitre d'. and the Maitre d'. or the Food and Beverage Manager or even the Hotel Director ......Neil.

Thanks Neil, yes they knew before we went and we were asured they were able to supply everything. We have just cruised with P and O and the difference was amazing it was great. We are travelling with them again next year but I will take some things with me. If its no better then it will be Bye , bye Royal Carribean. Thank you for your response. Jill.

I have coeliac disease and have completed 49 cruises with RCCL however I have never been on Explorer of the seas. You should see the head waiter when you go to the dining room and ask tell him yyour husband has coeliac and ask him to arrange gluten free meals. I usually order for starters Shrimp cocktail or Melon Palma ham etc. and a Ceasar Salad with no groutons and ministrone soup made with gluten free pasta and for desert a bowl of strawberries or similar.
