We just got back from our Royal Caribbean Cruise on Anthem of the Sea this SATURDAY and I have mostly complaints! 1. They did not have almost any new options for "GOOD" Gluten Free & Dairy free options...the same baking soda tasting bread (there are so many better mixes out now), 2. They did not have any gluten free beer onboard the ship (at any of the bars, etc), 3. Some of my dinners took over 1 hour to be prepared and my food allergies/sensitivities were given MONTHS in advance, 4. Desserts were scarce and I have taken many cruises w/them and back in 2010 when we went on my honeymoon cruise the desserts were a lot better! They definitely need someone to direct them in their ongoing options for gluten & dairy free individuals as there are MANY! Also they need to improve upon their communication on and OFF the ship as this was very poorly lacking! I'd be happy to be their Gluten Free Dairy Free consultant if they asked! Just saying ;-)
We did LOVE their trivia, great staff members who actively tried with what they had (they just didn't have much), and we loved our balcony room! I hope in the future they will improve and if we take another cruise with them they will have an active list of requests so it can start feeling like a vacation! (As a Gluten Free Dairy Free Foodie who does tours are NYC I expect massive options and on a cruise everyone else but those with food allergies gets them...this desperately needs to be FIXED) Thank you!
