Gluten free cruising

Gluten free cruising

Going on a cruise is great fun – even for people with coeliac condition.

Many cruise companies have the option of gluten-free catering on board. It is important that you register your gluten free dietary requirements when you book.
It is also a good idea to pack some snacks or sweets (e.g. from Schär) in your bag for when you get peckish between meals.
