This will be my first post intolerance discovery cruise. Taking Carnival to the western Carribean.
Any experienced cruisers have recommendations of how to ask/ what to be extra careful of(hidden gluten) while on board ship?
This is from the Carnival website. We are headed on a cruise in a few weeks as well. Happy sailing and I hope that this helps.

Took a cruise to Alaska this summer, 4 months post paleo. Just remember two things about food on a cruise ship. First, for sit down meals tell them in advance that you have Gluten intolerance, they will provide you with decent gluten free fare. Second, try and eat as much as possible at the buffets - they were happy to fry my eggs in butter instead of some modern "spray" - there is unlimited bacon, there are roasts and other cuts of meats, hot and cold, you can choose the most unprocessed ones. And finally you can get an unlimited choice of veggies, raw, which you can have cooked in butter if you prefer.
TBH I would try and get them to make your food up separately if you are looking for a gluten free meal. I have found that the best gluten free choices from a buffet style breakfast are the omelette station and the fruit section. Buffets and carveries are notorious for cross-contamination AFAIK...
