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 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 contain vegetarian and gluten free options. Degustation menus, such as the Gold Dinner, are specialty menus and we regret no special diet variations are available beyond offering the vegetarian or gluten free options from our Brilliant Dinner menu. Requests made for special diets, substitutions and modifications of menus 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 including but not limited to traces of nuts. Whilst all dishes are prepared onboard, our quality produce is supplied by third parties and we therefore cannot guarantee there are no traces of allergens (e.g. nut-free, dairy-free). We also cannot guarantee there will no cross-contamination of allergens during service and we explicitly accept no liability in this regard. For serious food allergies you must make your own decisions on selecting meals. Our staff's comments are only to assist you in making an informed decision.
