This review will cover our experience of eating gluten-free on NCL Star whilst crossing the Atlantic Ocean from Lisbon to Rio de Janeiro. It was our first time on this lovely ship (and first time sailing NCL as gluten-free diners), and our second cruise on NCL. We discovered that NCL deal with gluten free/allergy requirements quite differently to any other cruise line we’ve travelled with so far. Read on to find out more about our experience.Read more
This review covers our week spent on the delightful P&O Iona cruising the beautiful Norwegian Fjords. No apologies for the spoiler, suffice to say that our gluten-free dining experience was outstanding (so much so that we’ve booked a two week cruise on Iona next year!). For all the glorious details, please read on.Read more
Prior to our Celebrity Cruise round Alaska we spent a week in Seattle, doing the usual touristy things and sampling lots of gluten-free food!
I did find a lot of useful information from various blogs out there, although they were mainly written before the pandemic. As such, there were quite a few places that have now sadly closed down. For anyone that uses blog information, including this one, to make a list of places to visit, I’d always advise you to give the restaurant/eatery a google, and make sure they’re still open. Nothing more disappointing than turning up to somewhere you think sounds really good, only to find it isn’t open, or even worse, has completely closed down!
Obviously we couldn’t eat everywhere, so this blog will just cover the places we did manage to eat at.Read more
A bucket list cruise for both of us, this review will cover our experience of eating gluten free aboard the Celebrity Solstice ship. With a landscape as incredible as Alaska is I might slip in a fair few non-food pictures too (sorry/not sorry!). This was our second time on a Celebrity ship, but our first since having to eat gluten-free. Read on to find out how we got on!Read more
Not my usual kind of review, but we had such a great time I thought I’d do a post about it on my blog. My lovely husband booked this for me for my birthday (after a not so subtle hint!), and it was every bit as brilliant as I’d imagined. Plus, if you have to be gluten-free for whatever reason, the menu is surprisingly good.Read more
This review covers our ten night stay at the Iberostar Cristina Hotel on a half-board basis, as well as gluten-free suggestions for the surrounding area. Spain is generally regarded as catering really well for coeliacs, so how would we get on? Read more to find out!Read more
With a four day bank holiday weekend beckoning, we decided to book a short break to Corfu. I’ve been there once before, about 15 years ago (maybe more!), and my husband has never been. Now that we’re both gluten free we were worried that Corfu would be problematic and it is definitely an island of extremes where GF food is concerned.Read more
This review covers a three night sailing on Valiant Lady from Portsmouth on it’s maiden voyage. Virgin Voyages are a very new addition to the cruise scene, and we were keen to give them a try to see how good they are at dealing with gluten free. I’ve seen numerous blogs describing Virgin Voyages as “heaven” for foodies, but does that apply if you are gluten free? Well, here I am to let you know!Read more
A brief post about a recent weekend we spent in London. Sadly there aren’t many pictures, as I didn’t really think about it (romantic weekend plus three theatre trips and some sightseeing to fit in!). However, I thought it might be useful to list where we ate.Read more
This post is really an update to our experience on Sky Princess back in September 2021, when we did a 3 night staycation cruise. You can find that post here. Our experience was quite different this time, read on to find out what was better or worse!
Our two week cruise was a Mediterranean cruise, starting from Southampton and enjoying ports in France, Spain and Gibraltar. We were supposed to stop in Italy too, but the ports were changed in the run up to the cruise due to Covid restrictions.Read more
