I am JJ: This food-allergy kid ate like a King!


I just returned from my week on Carnival’s Horizon cruise ship. When I have a moment to settle back in, I will be posting much more about the experiences from the food allergy perspective. In short, the cruise was amazing, and I was floored by how well everyone accommodated the food allergy. With the exception of one minor hiccup (that’s life, right!), everything food-wise was remarkable.

I ate and ate and ate and ate. I even tried salmon tartare!

More about the cruise in upcoming posts throughout the month. To everyone at Carnival Horizon… Thank you, thank you, thank you!
