Major Cruise Line Launches Fleet-Wide Vegan Menu

Oceania Cruises is adding a plant-based menu of 250 dishes, cold-pressed juice, and vegan smoothies to six cruise ships.

Major cruise line Oceania Cruises recently debuted a new vegan menu across its six-ship fleet. Guests aboard the Insignia, Marina, Regatta, Nautica, Riviera, and Sirena can now choose from more than 250 vegan dishes available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The new dishes include a vegan tortilla espanola, a vanilla waffle with berries, tofu-stuffed involtini, and a five-course dinner menu that features Thai red curry, quinoa salad with vegetable tartare, and a strawberry shortbread dessert. Additionally, all ships will serve cold-pressed juices and vegan superfood smoothies in their pool deck Raw Juice and Smoothie Bar. “We are delighted to expand our culinary offerings to please an even wider array of palates and offer our guests more diverse choices to suit today's wellness-focused lifestyles,” Oceania CEO Bob Binder said. In addition to Oceania’s extensive new menu, vegan seafarers have more choices than ever with the debut of Cruise & Maritime Voyages’ seven night, all-vegan cruise to the Norway Fjordlands this September.
