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.
vegan menus are available fleet-wide on Oceania Cruises’ six ships – Regatta, Insignia, Nautica, Marina, Riviera,
What to expect –
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.
