How to go on a cruise if you have food allergies
- Travelers who have dietary restrictions or food allergies require extra planning when taking a trip.
- Celiac Cruise facilitates a celiac-specific training for all crew members on board the ship and has a dedicated galley free of gluten for the duration of the trip.
- They also choose sailings based on guest feedback, and work to safely recreate otherwise gluten-heavy experiences.
David and Sara Stubler took a cruise for their honeymoon in 1995, but after David found out he could not eat gluten six years ago, he thought that was his last.
“Because of my severe reaction to gluten and cross-contact, we didn’t think we’d ever go on a cruise again,” David Stubler, who has celiac disease and eosinophilic esophagitis and is also dairy-free, told USA TODAY.
