  1. Thank you so much for all of the responses! Shaky Beef nailed it, i need to eat a ketogenic diet , and it is very strict as i have a lectin intolerance, and an egg, coconut, and yeast sensitivity as well. Basically i eat meat, lots of healthy fats, a few lectin free nuts, and high quality chocolate. So, it is extremely limited and most definitely does not contain weed! In addition, i have a degenerative eye disease, and if i eat things that irritate me, my vision deteriorates very quickly, that would not be fun on vacation. I appreciate those of you who are open minded and did not judge me, especially for this being my first post when i have read these boards for years. For those who don't think this is a healthy diet, it is healthy for me, and i'm in the best shape I've ever been in at the age of 46! My dr said my bloodwork is perfect, and i never need to check my cholesterol again, even though i will every year 🙂 I know i don't need to explain myself, but maybe this will help open other people's eyes a bit to a different way of living/eating. Thanks, again!
  2. Hi! I am new to posting, but am an experienced Carnival cruiser, and have been reading these message boards for years! I have a health condition that is best controlled by diet. My diet is extremely limited, i am very sensitive to most foods. As a result, i cannot eat any of the desserts on board. I would love to be able to bring a few homemade treats, such as fudge, cookies, or brownies that contain the ingredients i know are safe for me. I can't buy them in stores because i need to be able to control the ingredients. Will i be able to bring these on board? I will also be bringing real butter, as i cannot take the chance of eating vegetable oil 🙂 I know that will be okay because it is packaged. I will likely only be eating meat while on board, as even fruits and vegetables can cause issues for me. I have a friend who sailed on RCL and was able to take baggies of homemade food onboard, but i am thinking Carnival requires it to be store bought, and unopened. We will be on the Sunshine out of Charleston. Any advice or help is greatly appreciated, thank you!
