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.
