A European river cruise can be an unforgettable vacation. Sailing down rivers used since ancient times you get all the spectacular views of Europe’s landscapes, sample the culture the cities have to offer and enjoy the great entertainment provided by a top class cruise company, all while staying in the luxury of a high quality hotel. Be it on the Rhine, Rhône or Seine, a cruise is a fantastic way to experience it all.
Of course, dining on any vacation can have it’s own problems, and having a strict dietary requirement such as being gluten-intolerant might well put someone off booking a cruise. The thought is entirely understandable, you’d be spending an extended time aboard a ship, without much in the realm of other options if your requirements aren’t properly catered to. Fortunately, this isn’t the case, so there’s no need to be apprehensive.
The cruises serve fine food prepared by an experienced kitchen, while keeping all their guests’ needs in mind. Gluten-free meals are always an option, and don’t come with additional hassle. The chefs on cruise lines like Uniworld will even consult with diners about the various options available and endeavour to find the best meal to your liking. Providing for all major dietary requirements is the norm on these river cruises rather than the exception. Sauces and soups are all made fresh aboard so there is never any danger or contamination, and fresh gluten-free bread is provided. To compliment your gourmet meals wine and gluten-free beers are often available.
Gluten intolerance doesn’t limit one to special cruises, in the same way anyone can take a gluten-free cruise. Chefs onboard all their cruises, as well as on competing cruise lines such as Viking river cruises, are trained by experts in dietary requirements on how best to provide for everyone’s needs. So if you fancy a spectacular trip through the most lively, scenic and cultured places Europe has to offer, don’t let your diet or worries hold you back.
