Oceania Cruises Adds Over 200 Vegan Dishes to Their Menus

Oceania Cruises has announced that they’ve added over 200 vegan meals to their menus, covering everything from breakfast to dessert. 

“We’re thrilled to unveil the most extensive and creative plant-based menus at sea with more than 200 new healthy dishes available on each of our beautiful ships”, Oceania said in a recent press release. “Remaining at the forefront of culinary development, our talented culinary team is turning out these healthy menu selections in The Grand Dining Room and Terrace Café at breakfast, lunch and dinner in addition to our already expansive gourmet offerings. You will also have plant-based options available upon request during dinner service in each of our specialty restaurants.”

Oceania notes that “Not only are our plant-based options mouthwatering and colorful, these dishes now provide you with an innovative menu of choices whether you’re seeking healthier options to balance our more indulgent options (our new Dom Pérignon Experience, anyone?) or you’re increasing your focus on overall wellness as you travel the world.” The plant-based dishes have been developed “by our culinary leadership team in concert with world-renowned chef, culinary instructor, and author Christophe Berg.”

According to the release, “These vibrant new menu offerings are in addition to our renowned vegetarian and Canyon Ranch selections and will be available on all of our ships by this August. Our new plant-based dishes are currently available on Riviera, and will be available on Regatta beginning May 1st, Marina beginning May 17th, Insignia beginning June 19th, Sirena beginning July 15th and Nautica beginning August 4th.

The range of cuisines spans the globe, including Italian, Greek, Middle Eastern, Korean, Thai, Vietnamese, Mexican, Italian, Malaysian and more. You can choose from healthy Power Bowls and Poke Bowls, hearty pastas and pad Thai, light and refreshing salads and soups and even a variety of surprisingly decadent items to choose from including an Impossible Cheeseburger, Truffle Mac and Cheese, an Apple-Oatmeal Crumble with plant-based Vanilla Ice Cream, and Coco-Vanilla Cashew Crème Brûlée.

    Where are the proteins though? How about adding some beans, lentils, tofu, tempeh, seitan? This looks more like a “we replace meat by vegetables” menu.
