We are planning a Carnival Cruise with our family (including our PA daughter) over the holidays. The cruise line insists that it will be safe and they deal with peanut allergy all the time. Has anyone been on a cruise? Any problems? Suggestions?
Thanks for your thoughts.

We are going on the Disney cruise in April and was very worried about their prepardness in case of emergency. I spoke with the women who coordinates all medical staffing and supplies on board the ship and she said that the Disney cruises carry epipenephrine on board and that they are well-aware of how to deal with peanut allergies. I am still trying to get information on food served on board...has anyone been on a Disney cruise?

My allergist told me a story of a family who went on a Disney cruise and the child had an allergy to dairy. The family was asured that provissions would be made and safe food and drink would be on board. Due to lack of space the family did not bring any of their own food supplies. Unfortunately, the food did not make it on board and the child ate dry cereal, dry salad and drank water for 4 days.
After that I decided that a cruise is not the way for us to go right now.
