View Full Version : Let's go cruising?
Hello everyone. My name is Diana, and I've recently been diagnosed with IC. Joining this forum has been the best thing that I could have done! Reading many of your posts has helped me in so many ways. I'm becoming more proactive in my treatment, and the information given here has helped me both emotionally and physically.
I have a challenge to face in a few weeks - my fiance and I are going cruising in the Caribbean, and I'm very worried about the meals that will be served. I have total control right now at home, but away I don't know what I'll face. All that I am able to drink now is water and milk, and this trip is a business as well as social engagement for us. Has any one else had to face such a challenge, and how did you handle it? :dizzy:
Thanks so much for listening ...

I have been on cruises before and, if you send in your diet restrictions earlier enough, they should cater to them. Cruises are known for having too much food to eat, so there should be lots of choice. Please contact the travel agent and see if you can send in your diet restrictions so they can assist. Good luck and have fun!

You are so lucky! I'd love to go on a cruise. I do agree that it would be a good idea to talk to your travel agent about your food restrictions. The agent will very likely take care of it for you, or at least let you know what you need to do.
Have a wonderful time.
And, oh, yes --- :welcome: to the IC Network!
Welcome!!!! :welcome: Oh, I hope you have a BLAST on your cruise. I went on one a long, long time ago and it was so much fun.
hope to see you around! :)

If you are worried about the business side of it and everyone together for drinks or whatever...just talk to your waiter and have them bring your water in a tall glass w/ a cherry and fancy umbrella, if you don't feel like discussing your IC.
I've been on a couple of cruises...I know you will have a blast!

I went on a cruise once with my mother and had a wonderful time. We are hoping to go again soon.
When chatting with someone on the ship, this woman said that another woman at her table never ordered anything off the menu. Keep in mind, for each course of the meal their is five choices. And the waiter made sure this women got what she wanted each night.
Their is food everywhere. My mom and I figured that on the ship we were on, their was only one half hour when food would not be served (except for from 1 am to 5 am).
