We are just venturing down the GF path as my son has very recently been diagnosed with celiacs. I too hope that there is sufficient food on board and hope that anyone with any allergy or choose to eat a certain way DO note it on their reservation form.

Many thanks

Do they offer gf pasta onboard? I've heard a lot of people get meat without sauce, but on top of gluten free, I'm also a vegetarian. I'm thinking I can have soup, salads, fruit and that they should be able to sautee veggies, rice, pasta and/or tofu. TIA!
They do offer gf pasta onboard. I had it a couple of times onboard the Magic in December. It was a corn pasta, I believe, which I really enjoyed.

Excellent! I have found that I am not a fan of the brown rice pasta. But the corn or quinoa pasta is good stuff!

Yes. My daughter orders the gf pasta every day (that is basically her lunch.). In the past it has been tinkyada brand (as they brought me the package to review).

I am Celiac and have only had great experiences with DCL..Chef and servers were wonderful not only when I was in the MDR with them but many times I was in the MDR without them and they still made sure my food was GF and stopped by to talk with me, and in the buffet, the chef walked me though each time and on the island they ( my head server and serving team) ordered GF food for me there.. I just had a wonderful experience ..

so please note it on you reservation, tell your server/head server, and Chef, and you will be GF.

Keep in mind that many soups start with a roux made of flour and that many sauteed veggies (and sometimes tofu) are marinated or cooked in soy sauce which is usually not gluten free unless you specifically get gluten free soy sauce. French fries and other fried foods may or may not be gluten free depending on whether they are coated in flour or if the fryer used is a dedicated fryer. There is so much to learn!!!

I agree HiYaPal. There is so much to learn. Some days are good some days are bad. I feel like I'm always checking labels and asking for ingredients. I will be so happy to be onboard and not worry about it. It can be exhausting but I am completely better without gluten. I've been gf for 3 months and when I have cheated, there is no denying that my pain and suffering comes back. I've noted it on both of my upcoming cruises so I know they won't run out because of me!

Another vote to note it on your reservation. Even though you know what you can order, they need to know to stock the right amount of food.
