Gluten Free Cruise Holidays
I know cruises used to be for the wealthy and lottery winners only, but these days because of the glut of cruise ships in existence ordinary people can now afford them. Having tried all kinds of holidays me and the other half are running out of ideas. I thought the best holidays were all inclusive beach holidays where I could choose what I ate but the other half can't stand the sun so I end up playing Johhny No-Mates cum pervy old loner on the beach.
Tried a villa but ended up stocking up with food and drink and hanging around the villa for a week. Would have been better of staying at home because I managed to get glutened by a packet of processed meat containing wheat gluten!
So, we were thinking that these big cruise ships have sun and shade and breeze and lots of food choices and it might be worth trying. They might even stop in places we've not seen before.
Have any other coeliacs had good or bad experiences on cruise holidays? Are there good ships and not so good ships? Are there any 'outstanding' cruise lines out there who bend over backwards to cater for coeliacs?
The recent news of the treatment of passengers who went down with the nasty chuckup virus that is going around is tending to dampen my hopes.
