My wife and 2 kids have Celiac, and thus can not eat gluten or have any cross contamination. We heard Disney and Royal are the two lines to go on if you have that, so having already tried Disney it was time to try Royal. Royals food was MUCH better than Disney in my opinion. I do not have Celiac, so I got to try food that was specially prepared for my family, and the food that was made for the average guest. I read a lot of reviews prior to going on this ship, and saw that gluten-free chicken fingers apparently are impossible to come by. That is UNTRUE. We had it multiple nights and afternoons on the ship ( my 6 and 3 year old liked them ). Ask for Robinson, he will help you out in the general dining room. Gluten free waffles also can be done but has to be preordered. Also we got doughnuts gluten free one morning, but didn’t taste that great. We also did 2 specialty restaurants...Chops and Giovani’s . Both were excellent. Chops had the best filet I’ve ever tasted. We went into the restaurant the day before and found out what is safe for Celiac and what they could make up for us. It was a very easy going experience. My wife felt a little off towards the end of the cruise but we think it was just because of the AMOUNT of food and heavy dairy, but she didn’t get glutened. Both of my kids were good too. The entertainment and overall cruising experience was absolutely wonderful, but just wanted to write a review for all the concerned parents out there with kids that have celiac. If you cruise with Royal at least on this boat you will be fine.

Cabin Review

Ocean View Balcony
Cabin 7D 7188
For 4 people ( 2 kids and 2 adults) the room was Too small. When we cruise again we have to upgrade. Kids and myself were constantly hurting ourselves trying to navigate around the room. The room was the worst thing about the cruise.
