On a HAL cruise, Karen ordered a low sodium meal, to see what her clients would be getting. She said that it was very, very bland. On the other hand, the Kosher meal was very tasty. Many fruits like the tomato have sodium (natural Salt) in them. A meal can be cooked with absolutely no table salt at all, yet be loaded with sodium naturally occurring in fruits, vegetables and meats. Are there exchange guides for those on low sodium diets as there are for diabetics?

Yes, you can arrange this on all the cruise lines. First I would have your travel agent request a low sodium diet, then as soon as you board the ship go see the MaitreD and make sure he is aware of your diet. Every night the waiter will give you the menu for the next nights dinner and help you choose what fits your dietary needs.
Breakfast and lunch in the dining room, they will also prepare your food the way you need it. In the buffet I have found you are pretty much on your own and it is much harder to stay low sodium.
If someone asks for low sodium on a cruise (or plane), how low is the
sodium? I can have a reasonable amount of sodium but find that normal
meals often have a unnecessarily high amount of sodium.
On a cruise the MaitreD knows which foods are higher then others and will will tell you. They will suggest a clear broth before they add other ingredients that raise the sodium level. They also will suggest doing without a sauce which is high in sodium.
