  3. MSC Meraviglia
Last summer kids, husband and I went back to the cruiser MSC company just for certified gluten free food. Children and I have celiac disease, and it is very important to eat strictly gluten-free foods. At MSC Meraviglia, similar to the previous MSC Preciosa, the gluten free food is great but unfortunately only available in the main restaurant. One morning we slept and late for breakfast and until lunch we did not eat anything (we took a banana and orange in the buffet restaurant) because there was not gluten-free food available to us anywhere. I also told the lady in charge of taking care of our diet to allow kids to have snack in the afternoon, but this was only possible with the reservation the day before and if you are on a trip. Total nonsense! If they know we are coming, they must provide food in advance, especially to children !!! Of course we were on the cruise when we did not know we had celiac disease then we really enjoy the food and drink. Now that's not possible. The bar with a gluten-free drink is just one and it is located away from the pool, pizza and burgers are not available (this is especially lacking in kids), not to mention ice cream and pommes frites that can only be obtained at the main restaurant. As for the boat itself, everything is great. No entertainment is missing. The kids enjoyed it. It would be great to take a little more attention to people who need special nutrition. AS
