Oceania Cruises debuts 200 new plant-based options
Cruise-vacation giant Oceania has announced the launch of 200 new plant-based options on board its ships.
“More than 200 healthy new selections will be featured, with the new dishes available in The Grand Dining Room and Terrace Café at breakfast, lunch and dinner, in addition to our already expansive gourmet offerings,” reads a Facebook post from the brand.
A number of the new selections mimic international cuisine, drawing inspiration from countries such as Italy, Greece, Vietnam, Mexico and Thailand, to create dishes such as Kimchee Soup, Poke Bowls and Falafel Fritters.
Suddenly, the challenge is no longer finding something to eat on a non-vegan cruise ship, but sorting out how to try all 200 dishes while on board. It seems there should be some kind of award for that, no?
Those up to the (totally unofficial and probably impossible) challenge will be interested to know the new dishes are now available on the Riviera, and will roll out to Regatta on May 1, Insignia on June 19, Sirena on July 15, and Nautica on August 4.
All of this said, eco-conscious consumers may want to bear in mind that cruising has fallen under criticism for its environmental impact. Those looking to explore alternative vegan vacation options can do so here.
