Luxury cruise line Oceania expanded its vegan offerings onboard all 6 of its ships, making the company one of the most vegan-friendly on the high seas.
The new breakfast menu includes vegan tortilla Espanola with tofu, potato and onions, along with vegan link sausages, pistachio muffins and vanilla waffles. For lunch, passengers can opt for Tuscan-style bean soup, for dinner - vegetable tartare, parsnip soup and quinoa salad are all available, followed by the dessert - shortbread with passionfruit cream.
Further, on a couple of of Oceania’s cruise ships, Marina and Riviera, raw-fruit juices and vegan smoothies are available from the specialty bars situated on the Pool Deck. Guests can opt for a cold brew latte or sweet green juice, as well as chia cashew yogurt bowl or acai berry.
Vegan cruises are currently becoming more popular with vacationers. Both Toronto and Australia launched their first ever vegan voyages in 2018, bound for the Toronto Islands and the Pacific Islands. A cruise to benefit Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary with Carnival departed for the Caribbean last February, with a special vegan “Esther-approved” menu served onboard.
In early June, it was announced that the largest group travel company in the world, Intrepid Travel, had launched 3 new vegan food tours in Italy, India and Thailand.
