Passengers sailing with Oceania now have a wider range of food options, thanks to a new menu including over 250 plant-based dishes and drinks.
"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," said Bob Binder, President & CEO of Oceania Cruises, in a statement.
The new vegan menus are available fleet-wide on Oceania Cruises’ six ships – Regatta, Insignia, Nautica, Marina, Riviera, and Sirena.
What to expect -
Beginning each day with breakfast, guests will be able to choose from nine vegan dishes and sides. The new main dishes include Vegan Tortilla Española with potato, onions, & tofu; vanilla waffles with fresh berries, and cream of wheat with cinnamon, organic sugar & a choice of nuts. The new sides dishes include grilled tomatoes, vegan link sausage, sautéed mushrooms, and lyonnaise potatoes.
The lunchtime offerings include bean soup with garlic croutons, a fantasia Italian salad, and a spinach, tofu and capers pasta dish, with a dessert option of a vegan Italian chocolate ricotta pie with vanilla & raspberry sauce.
And finally, when the sun sets over the open sea, guests can enjoy a changing menu of five-course vegan meals for dinner; some of the options on offer are a quinoa salad with vegetable tartare, a parsnip soup with chopped tarragon, a Thai red curry, all followed by strawberry sable or shortbread with passion fruit cream & strawberries for those with a sweet tooth.
Veganism is a rapidly growing social justice movement, with the number of vegans in the UK increasing by 360% in the last decade and vegan food sales increasing by 1500% in the last year. This rapid shift in consumer preferences is paving the way for businesses to offer high quality plant-based food options.
