Allergens & Special Diet Requests

All meals are freshly prepared onboard our vessels. Due to the nature of cruising we have limited time to prepare and serve our menus.

Private Events: When notified at least 72 hours in advance we can offer substitutions for vegetarian, vegan, pescatarian, dairy free and gluten free. Other special diets are on request.

Public Dining Experiences: Most à la carte menus in our public restaurant contain vegetarian and gluten free options. Degustation menus, such as the Gold Dinner and High Tea are specialty menus and we regret no special diet variations are available. Requests made for specialty diets, substitutions and modifications of menus for our public cruises will be politely declined.

All cruises: Please note it is the client's responsibility to notify Captain Cook Cruises of any attendees who may suffer from food intolerances or allergies. All menus contain allergens and are prepared in a kitchen that handles nuts, shellfish, gluten, dairy, etc. Whilst all reasonable efforts are taken to accommodate guest's dietary needs, we cannot guarantee that certain allergens will not be in our food and accept no liability in this regards. Ingredients may change due to seasonal availability. For serious food allergies clients must make their own decisions on selecting meals. Our staff's comments are only to assist you in making an informed decision.
