Australia's First Vegan Cruise Sets Sail This Fall

The Whole Connection cruise will treat guests to nine days of yoga, exclusive documentaries, and all-vegan menus.

A fully vegan cruise aboard luxury cruiseliner Celebrity Solstice will set sail from Sydney, Australia on October 20. The Whole Connection (TWC) wellness-themed cruise will sail across the Pacific Islands for nine days and feature daily yoga, exclusive documentary screenings, discussion panels with wellness experts, and whole-food, plant-based cooking classes. Guests will be served vegan menus and have access to workshops that focus on plant-based livings. The event was originally planned as a cruise with a plant-based portion, but will now proceed as a fully vegan cruise. While TWC bills the journey as the first all-vegan cruise in Australia, several companies operate vegan seafaring trips worldwide, including Cruise & Maritime Voyages, which launched its seven-night vegan cruise from London to Norway’s Fjords during fall 2017.
