Oceania Cruises has announced new vegan menus, which feature more than 250 innovative dishes, on all six of its ships—plus raw juice and smoothie bars on two of them. Passengers—vegan and omnivore alike—can now enjoy delicious meals that are kinder to animals, the environment, and their bodies. For allowing people to take compassion along with them on their travels, PETA is sending the company a Compassionate Business Award.

Standouts from the new menus include vanilla waffles with fresh berries and apricot and pistachio muffins for breakfast; a succulent involtini stuffed with tofu, spinach, and capers for lunch; and a bevy of ever-changing five-course meals for dinner, such as Thai red curry with steamed jasmine rice, a creamy truffle-flavored parsnip soup with tarragon, and a quinoa salad and vegetable tartare. A raw juice and smoothie bar is available onboard two of the ships, Marina and Riviera.

The expanded culinary options follow encouragement last year from PETA, as well as growing public interest in wellness-focused lifestyles. Oceania’s compassionate and delicious new vegan menus have us hoping that other cruise lines will soon follow suit with animal-free fare of their own.

Vegan meals reduce diners’ chances of developing heart disease by a whopping 32 percent, according to a large-scale study conducted by Oxford University. In addition, going vegan reduces the risk of suffering from diabetes, obesity, and cancer—and saves the lives of more than 100 animals a year. Google Trends notes that public interest in vegan eating is higher now than ever before.

Bon Voyage!
