By August 2019, Oceania Cruises announced it will add extensive plant-based options to all dining facilities onboard all of its six cruise ships.
While the company previously offered a modest selection of vegan options, it already offers 200 plant-based dishes created via collaboration with vegan chef Christophe Berg.
- Breakfast dishes now include Banana-Oatmeal Pancakes with Maple Syrup and Berries, Avocado Toast on Rustic Farmer’s Bread, Green Apple Muesli with Pistachios, Pecans, and Yellow Raisins.
- Lunch and dinner offerings inspired by global cuisines feature dishes like Korean Kimchi Soup, an Impossible Cheeseburger, Truffle Mac & Cheese, Hawaiian Poke Bowl, Falafel Fritters with Plant-Based Harissa Mayo, Cucumber, Mint, and Capers.
- Oceania is also due to offer an array of desserts like Vodka-Marinated Strawberries Romanoff with plant-based Vanilla Ice Cream, Coco-Vanilla Cashew Creme Brulee, and Apple-Oatmeal Crumble (also served with vegan ice cream).
The menu update is part of the line’s multi-year, US$100 million modernization initiative OceaniaNext that also includes the Vero Water systems' installation onboard in order to eliminate plastic bottle waste.
