Q. What happens on board after I request a special diet?

Whenever possible, the Chefs will do their best to adapt dishes on the main menu accordingly to suit guests' needs.  Guests who require a special diet will be approached on the first night by the Head Waiter in the restaurant to discuss their diet. 

A menu will then be provided for the following night's meal and the order taken in advance. This process will be repeated each night giving the Chef's plenty of time to plan and prepare meals accordingly.  

Guests with allergies are not normally provided with a separate menu.  The majority of special diets can always be accommodated in the main restaurants, however in the speciality restaurants you will need to notify the staff when making your reservation of your dietary requirement.

Providing you have notified us in advance of your dietary requirements, guests on Freedom Dining will have a card in their stateroom on arrival asking them to make themselves known to the Restaurant Manager on the first night to discuss their requirements.
