My husband and I are going on the June 23 Princess Diamond Alaska cruise too! I understand that in our table of eight seating for dinner, that I can choose a low-fat or heart healthy option nightly, if I choose. Are there several options to choose from each night? How does this work?

I honestly don't recall how it was on Princess (I was on Diamond Princess in 2005) -- yet on most lines there is typically one low-fat or "spa cuisine" item per course. But be careful, as the fat content can be high when the courses are added together. And, watch out for the salad dressing.

Okay, if you eat the low-fat choices and come back and post, are you going to say the food was boring and tasteless?

I order from the spa cuisine side often the food is not boring or bland.

I am on a similar diet for health reasons I find when I travel I restrict my portion size and courses by eating in the dining room not self sevice the temptations are to great,I have found my colesterol level are not much higher when I return, and I eat well, the salt content can be a prob, but take lots of fluids and walk as much as I can,sounds hard but I like living. kalo taxidi

Also, in your cruise personalizer on-line you can request any special dietary needs you require. Princess offers low carb, low cholesterol choices on their menus and can provide any dietary requirements if you let them know. My hubby has high cholesterol and is diabetic. He eats the normal selections and limits his bread and desert intakes. He doesn't limit his beer, however. Takes his meds and when he is tested after returning home, is pretty close to the same as before the cruise. I make him walk instead of taking the elevators, we snorkel and walk in ever port, and he enjoys himself. Just let them know in advance if you have any strict dietary requirements, they will accomodate. Best wishes and have a marvelous cruise!!
