On our cruise on Artemis in May one of the people on our table had problems with gluten. The lady concerned was very hapy with the dining room staff and the trouble they went to ensure her dietary needs were met. You should have no problems, but it might be wise to let P and O know of your needs before your wife's needs before the cruise.

I suggest you phone P&O as soon as possible. You are normally asked if want any special diets when booking. There is no problem provided they know. This is what the website says. Naturally, we can provide diabetic, fat-free, vegetarian and gluten-free meals etc. A limited range of kosher food items are carried on board our ships though you should note that kosher food production is unsupervised. In order to give us plenty of time to place the necessary orders and also to give you the best possible service, please let us know your needs and any food allergies that you may have when you make your booking or by calling our Reservations Centre no later than 12 weeks before you travel. Please note, however, that we cannot guarantee specific brands. Substitute items may apply.

A friend of mine who is both coeliac and diabetic has found P&O to be very helpful and imaginative regarding her dietary needs, often offering to make suitable desserts based on the regular menu. However, as has been stated, P&O do need to be aware of your wife's dietary requirements before departure. Hope this helps, enjoy your cruise. Regards - Janet.

Dean Michaelides's blog

I recently read an article from a former cruise ship employee. He was explaining that having sex, taking drugs and making friends in the onboard sex dungeon was a regular occurrence on board one Caribbean cruise liner. Despite having sex with the clients being a sackable offence the staff would have no qualms getting involved. He also mentioned that the riskier the better so as well as having sex in the staff decks they would like to push the boundaries on the unpopulated decks.It wasn’...

Piraeus Athens Gateway Or ...

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

Continuing my look at European ports this week I thought I`d choose Piraeus, the port for the Greek capital Athens.Athens is probably most famous for the Acropolis, topped by the Parthenon Temple, and the National Museum. It is a bustling, busy city with lots to do and a place I have visited several times. It has lots of really good hotels, restaurants and bars as well as its history. Many cruise ships now visit Athens using Piraeus as the anchor port.The port sits about 7 miles from the city...
