“The guide is very well written and I enjoyed the humor in it.Laura Nault, Travel Agent, Master Cruise Counsellor
I think it will be great for people who have never cruised before.”
Okay, but let me ask you:
Trust me, I know where you’re coming from. I was there too.
But if there’s a chance you could find a great holiday and not have to worry the whole time about your next meal, wouldn’t you want to know about it?
The free online guide explains why a cruise may work with your special diet, and why you may even enjoy it. Then it shows you how to make it happen…
I have a friend who is allergic (anaphylaxis) to nuts and shellfish. She just went on an Alaska Cruise and said it was awful. It was a family reunion get together on the cruise. She couldn’t eat anything at the buffets because they couldn’t guarantee no exposure to her allergens. They told her the first night that she should have booked in the dining room where you can order specifically stuff but they didn’t know that. The first night she was told there were no options for eating and she wouldn’t get any dinner. They did book in the dining room but then they needed 24 hours to be aware of allergens. She had put this info into the appropriate areas when they booked their cruise. She and I eat out at home (and wherever we travel for conferences) all the time with no issues.
Practical advice. How things really work. How to make it work for you.
There’s an impression that you just tell them your special diet when you book, and it’s all taken care of. It’s not, not even close. There are things you need to do, choices you need to make.
Maybe they don’t tell you everything because it destroys the illusion of a perfect vacation. If you have a special diet, you already know nothing is perfect. But it can be very good indeed.
Know what you need to know. Set realistic expectations. Have a great holiday.
