How do I follow a special diet on a cruise?


Question from DAL: My husband and I are planning a cruise over Christmas. After I was treated for stage II last year, I was advised to limit sugar and dairy and eat lots of vegetables and grains. Who do I talk to about my special dietary needs as I get ready for our trip?
Answers - Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D. I would really push the cruise company and see if they have a registered dietician who might be able to help guide you with the specifics of what's available on that particular cruise and maybe have some special food options available to you. I don't know if any cruise lines have a registered dietician as a consultant. I would guess that this is not an uncommon question and someone associated with the cruise line is going to be able to give you some advice on what options will be available to you.
