Thank you for all the responses! I didn't even think about bringing snacks with me - great idea, I'll make some plans to do that.
I have the insulin pens; once I take one out of the refrigerator, I don't need to put it back in, which is really convenient. One pen (I take Levemir) lasts about a week, though I'm going to bring an extra one just in case; I may bring a Novolog pen as well (I only take that in a emergency, rare).
I actually see my endocrinologist 5 days before we sail, so I'll make sure to get a note at that time. Good idea about carrying prescription copies, as well.
Is there usually any issue with food on a cruise? I have a good idea of what I can eat and what I should avoid, but are there any specialized menus (you know how they mark the Vitality items on RCI, that kind of thing)? I'm planning on using discretion... I was only diagnosed in September, so this is VERY new to me.
Thanks again for the helpful information.
