Hooked Seafood and Shellfish Allergy question.


Recommended Posts

I am going on the Star Trek Cruise next February on Navigator of the Seas. I am a loyal RCI cruiser and will become Diamond on that cruise.

I noticed Navigator has a new to me specialty restaurant, Hooked Seafood. I have looked at the menu and it seems to be very shellfish oriented. I love shrimp, but before I learned to enjoy lobster and crab, I sadly developed a shellfish allergy. It is bad enough I have an EPI pen. I also seem to get nauseated if there are strong shellfish smells. It is so unfortunate. However, I enjoy salmon, and tuna and a variety of other fish without any problems. My wife loves shellfish, especially Maryland Style crab cakes which I see are on the menu.  I was wondering if Hooked is worth a try and how they might accommodate my allergy. It seems the menu is extremely limited for me. Any thoughts?

turf and turf are excellent filet steaks. Worth a visit. As with all sit down restaurants, waiters will ask about allergies. You can also go to the restaurant (at least a day before dining) and discuss with restaurant management. If they have the ingredients - they will usually accommodate you. They have even brought us meal items from other specialty restaurants.

I would be concern about becoming nauseate with the strong shellfish smells.  If the seafood is fresh - which it should be - then you may not have a problem.  But go early in the cruise when the shellfish is at the height of freshness.

It’s all cooked in one common kitchen so there is no way they can guarantee there won’t be any cross contamination. If it’s just the smell, I think you will be just fine. But if you are allergic to the touch…I personally wouldn’t chance it
