Great Experience dining gluten free on NCL cruise line

Reviewer: GFApril from Florida
Reviewed on Jul 26, 2012

Since being gluten free, I have take two cruises on the Norwegian Epic. The first cruise went to the Eastern Caribbean, the second cruise was to Italy. Prior to the cruise I noted my gluten free dining preference both through my online check in and I also through my travel agent. The first night in the dining room was the only night that went a little rough. Mostly because things took longer to prepare, as they did not know my selections ahead of time. After diner the maitre d' brought me a menu for the next night (the same menu everyone else would have), I was able to choose what ever I wanted and they would adjust the ingredients to be gluten free. I also was able to request gluten free sliced bread at each seating. Each night a gluten free dessert was also offered. My favorite was their flourless chocolate cake with raspberry sauce! Most all my meals were eaten in the dining room. For breakfast there was a choice of gluten free waffles. I would not recommend them though, they were always a little hard with not much flavor. I usually ate yogurt, with fruit, eggs, and bacon each morning. I could also have gluten free bread for breakfast if I wanted. For lunch we ate at the buffet most of the time. This took a little more effort, as I had to talk to the supervisor each time to requst my gluten free pasta or pizza. They also advised me which other items were gluten free on the buffet. There I was able to get my very own gluten free pizza with the toppings of my choice! The pizza was not the best I've ever had, but it certainly wasn't the worst either. The option of gluten free pasta was also always available and actually quite good. I was advised which salad dressings were gluten free each day as well. Overall I had an excellent experience cruising on the Norweign Epic. I never went away hungry with the many options I had to choose. Everyone was overly accommodating making sure I was always happy with my choices. I even when as far as to write a letter personally to Norwegian complimenting them on the outstanding service I received on both my cruises with them.
