Have cruised quite a bit with P & O and Cunard. Overall, they have been very good. At dinner you get a visit from the Head Waiter who gives you the menu for the next night so that you can choose and they have a day to prepare. I gather the ships have a dedicated area for the food preparation.
There is an all day restaurant at the top of the ships and if you search out one of the senior staff there they will prepare you pasta or anything else that you may fancy. A lot of the food such as the curries is gluten free anyway. When it comes to afternoon tea they always do gluten free cakes but these tend to be a bit variable. Bread on the ships also tends to be variable. Some have been super but last year when I went to the Baltic it wasn't great and I told them so. P & O stock the St Peter's Gluten free beer which is great. You won't go hungry! Make sure you tell them you are gluten free when you book and a week before you go give them another ring just to make sure! Hope this helps.
