Has anyone traveled that has a peanut allergy?? My son is fatally allergic and just wanted some tips from other passengers if they have traveled with the same condition.

We are sailing on the Elation and I was wondering if they had the waterworks slide... the really cool one or just a general slide. I am very excited about going and know this will be a huge hit with my kids.
Thank you so much!
It is mu understanding that the Elation still have the regular slide. I do not believe the EOV has been installed yet.
As for the allergy, I would advise that you use the same precautions that you would use whenever eating at any restaurant at land. And I would use that same precaution at every meal.
Since it is such a severe allergy, I would never "assume" that just because the first meal at dinner or on Lido was ok...that the rest of the week will be ok.
You are the first responder (so to speak) in protecting your son. And while Carnival does its best to be aware of these kinds of allergies... obviously the "buck stops" with you.
I would make sure I filled out a special needs form that you can get at firstname.lastname@example.org
. I would make sure I spoke with the Maitre D in your dining room as well as the Head Waiter. Put as many "layers" of protection as you can.
If your son is Camp Carnival age, you will also want to list this allergy on the orientation sheet.
Our son has Autism and he wears an Autism Dog Tag at all times when he is on a cruise.
Good luck and hope your cruise is a great one.
