Road trips to the "big city" for dining and entertainment
Spokane is "big city" in my corner of the Pacific Northwest - located 90 miles north of Moscow with shopping malls, restaurants, an international airport, minor league sports teams, and plenty of venues for concerts and shows. It's also home to the Lilac Bloomsday Run, Spokane Hoopfest 3-on-3 basketball tournament, and Riverfront Park.
We make trips to Spokane several times a year and I have compiled a list of my favorite places to find a gluten-free meal.
GOOD TO KNOW: www.carnival.com/
Specialties: Buffet, dining room, specialty restaurants, quick service
Gluten-free: Preorder for dining room, various items and some locations
Other: Gluten-free beer available
Note: Fill in the special dietary needs section when preregistering online and the info will be tagged to you in the dining room via your room number

Gluten-free options on the Carnival Breeze
I recently took a 7-day cruise through the eastern Caribbean on the Carnival Breeze - my first sailing with Carnival and also the longest cruise I've taken. The Breeze offers a wide variety of dining options ranging from a large buffet with rotating hot items, salad bar and desserts to Guy's Burger Joint and fine dining in the Sapphire dining room. Overall, the food gets a solid B for variety and taste but Carnival loses points with regard to gluten-free options, labeling, staff knowledge, and a general lack of give a damn for guests with dietary needs. I get the feeling that Carnival WANTS to be good at accommodating dietary restrictions, they just fall short.
A note to readers:
I am gluten sensitive/intolerant so I am not overly concerned with possible cross contamination. If you have severe reactions, I recommend taking additional precautions.
