Only three more days until Paradise! I started planning this cruise in January, so it’s been a long time coming. Nothing left to do but the packing.
As I stated in previous posts, I am hoping to blog live from the ship/airport, and I will be taking lots of pictures, not only of the sights but of the marvelous gluten free and dairy free foods I am hoping to enjoy.
There are some questions I am hoping to answer on this trip:
- Will I be able to meet the challenges of airport food? (not airline food-too many food issues to even attempt that)
- will having a butler/concierge make my dining with food issues easier, or harder?
- how restricted in choices will I be?
- Can I safely dine in Hawaii itself?
I have done very extensive research on safe places to eat not only in the airports but in Hawaii itself. We will have several layovers-the longest will be at Honolulu and LAX. Safe options at airports are severely limited. Dining options on the islands are not as restricted. In fact, Hawaii is very gluten-free friendly.
Here are my dining options as they stand now:
Salt Lake City airport:
I couldn’t find anything here that was safe. I am bringing snacks and oatmeal with me.
Marriott Beach resort Waikiki:
Sansei Seafood restaurant
Maui-Road to Hana
Lunch provided-have arranged gluten, dairy and nut free lunch
Hilo Bay Cafe
They do have gluten, dairy and nut free options here
Not sure what I am going to do here-no viable options. I will probably bring something off the ship.
Lahaina chicken company
no viable options-probably my own oatmeal
I am not worried about food on the ship. In fact, I have been told by others who have sailed with Norwegian that I am in good hands.
If anyone knows of safe places to eat in LAX and Salt Lake City airports, as well as Pearl Harbor memorial, please share. It would really be appreciated!
Stay tuned for my live blog!!
