    Cool Cruiser
  1. We will be sailing on the Celebrity Equinox in February 2020 and looking into taking an Uber/Lyft at disembarkation in Port Everglades to get to the airport. Has anyone tried that before? Since there are a lot of people getting off at one time, I am not sure if it will be tough to find an Uber. Is there a better option to get to the airport?
  2. What kind of lactose free desserts did they have? We just booked with Celebrity.
  3. All wise words! And as a lactose intolerant person, I would like to thank all the vegans out there for making things easier for me when I eat out! 🙂
  4. Thanks for the comments everyone! Let me further explain my issue. Dairy sneaks into all sorts of restaurant food. As already mentioned, butter is commonly put on top of steaks after they have been cooked. This is the case in many normal restaurants (outback, ruth's chris) as well as on the cruise (RC Chops, japanese steakhouse, and so on). While that can be easily dealt with, it is the unknown that makes it hard, particularly in the buffets. Chili, omelets (milk mixed into the egg sauce), soups, rolls, salad dressings, curry, hamburgers, and many other all have the potential of having dairy. On the Disney cruise someone was able to point out which foods were safe. On RC, it took a lot of effort to find someone, and then they had to go back and talk to someone else. I could easily spend 30 minutes just finding out if food are safe, and that gets to be tiresome. RC menus now say "lactose free options available" but I found the waiters to not be very knowledgeable about what that menu. And, as I already said, they have very limited dessert options. I can only eat so much jello or fruit for dessert!
  5. I am lactose intolerant... beyond what a lactaid pill can fix. So I have to be very careful about avoiding dairy while cruising. My experience on cruises so far is that the buffets are difficult to figure out what is safe other than hunting down a manager to ask about a specific food. The dining rooms have "safe" entrees, but they are limited and my only dessert option is jello. Have any of you been on a cruise line or ship that did well with dietary restrictions?
