Carol advise is good. Carnival does try to accomodate you. I have a friend who is Vegetarian and from India. He made some requests and found that a chief on board was Indian and made him many special dinners.
Also, they do provide meals on each menu that are "Healthy" choice selctions. They will put some info next to these like calories and carbs etc... I don't remember if they list the Cholesterol content or not.
Guests with diet requirements can be accommodated on board. We do not have Dieticians onboard; therefore, we can only offer assistance with simple requests such as the method of preparation of menu items. The special diet requirements need to be arranged with the guest's Headwaiter on the first night of the cruise. Every menu (in the dining room) has Spa Carnival Cuisine Fare. These items are lower in calories, sodium, cholesterol and fat. Salads are prepared with diet dressing. Desserts are prepared with Sweet'N Low or NutraSweet instead of sugar. In addition, each menu has one vegetarian entree. Low-cholesterol egg substitute is available upon request as well as diet jellies at breakfast.
The following simple diets can be prepared onboard:
