Gluten free is not vegetarian (although you could be by choice) - Celiac Disease is an autoimmune condition caused by allergy to wheat, barley, rye and oats. The gluten in those products cause tears in the gut which can lead to osteperosis, lymphoma and other illnesses. Cross-contamination is a huge issue for sufferers - even a minute amount is off limits for life. Carnival did tell me that they can accomodate it by special breads and advise on selections but I was hoping some Celiac sufferers could advise on their actual experience onboard.
