Cruise holidays are known for all-you-can-eat buffets. With a wide array of mouth-watering foods available, it’s easy to overindulge. Talk to your diabetes educator before you leave about how to fit some of these foods into your meal plan. When possible, obtain a sample menu from the cruise line, so you’ll have an idea of the types of foods served; then you can plan your meals accordingly.
Keep active to compensate for any extra food you eat. Cruise ships offer some great activities; try an aerobics class, go for a swim, or stroll the deck at sunset.
It’s a good idea to make the cruise staff aware of your diabetes in case any problems arise. Have all of your medications well documented.
