Cruise to Alaska - bring your own food?

daphnar | Dec 14, 201509:52 AM     2

Been on a number of cruises, and while my family loves them, I can't bear eating the Weberman meals (or worse). On one cruise (NCL, Caribbean islands) they were accommodating to people who brought their own meals. We brought a bakery birthday cake and they were happy to store it in their fridge until the big day. One woman even had a crock pot and was able to have chullent on Shabbat - we were lucky recipients of her largess. On another cruise (Royal Caribbean, Caribbean islands), I brought a bakery birthday cake and they would not even store it in their fridge for us. That was the cruise that started with only 2 servings of chicken soup on a 7 day excursion. They ran out of other dishes as well.

As I suppose this is not only a cruise line but also an individual boat issue, anyone successfully bring , meals onboard an Alaskan cruise? If so, were they purchased and wrapped or homemade? Appreciate any advise.
