Lactose Free Milk?

Hi everyone,

I have recently booked a cruise for me, husband and two kids. I just found this site and it has some great info!

I am wondering, does anyone know if you can get lactose free milk on board? My daughter is lactose intolerant.

I think you can get soy milk. I brought a half gallon of Lactaid milk onboard that I picked up at Publix just before embarkation. There was room for it in the room fridge.

I had some Lactose Free Milk once on the Disney Magic. It was for breakfast in one of the MDRs and it was served in a glass, not in a Tetrapak as I expected. Was a little bit tricky to get it over my cereals.
If you inform Disney about the lactose intolerance ahead of your cruise date they will take care of your daughter. But as far as I read here other posts they can get quite over-protectiv. They will inform you about every item on the menu which contains milk - sauces, desserts - and will search for alternatives.

So if your daughter can tolerate milk in e.g. chocolate desserts and ice cream - as I do - you probably would not like to discuss this every evening with your server.

I agree with previous post

My son has a true tested milk allergy. Imade the mistake of telling the cruise staff on our first cruise and my server was driving me nuts about it. I appreciated the staffs cautions but for my son drinking milk causes lots of issues but none of which are deadly. I far prefer Monitoring it myself and will never tell them again. Trace amounts of milk are in almost everything. So my two cents are that if your child's allergy is serious thn by all mean tell them. If not, monitor it yourself because the crew will probably go overboard in helpfulness.

On board the Wonder last week, they had almond milk available at Beach Blanket Buffet for use on cereals. If you like it, that's an option.
One cruise is never enough!

Have you tried Lactaid tablets? I don't have problems with a little bit of milk ( on a bowl of cereal, for instance) but a dish of ice cream is just way too much dairy. Two Lactaid tablets make it agreeable for me. Try the generic store brand; I get a huge box at Costco dirt cheap, and on the ship I just keep two of the individually wrapped tablets in my lanyard pouch - so any time is ice cream time.

I had to call Special Services to discuss some food allergies and was told that they always have rice milk on board. I have gotten soy milk on board in the past.
