Maybe I’m the only one but I had no idea that vegan cruises existed. The Holistic Holiday at Sea sets sail on March 2-9, 2013.
From the website…
For most vegan travelers, cruising is a daunting if not impossible vacation option. Many of the vegetarian options on traditional cruise ship menus use cheese and butter, or other dairy products, which makes eating vegan while cruising a real nightmare. Holistic Holiday at Sea, a holistic health educational foundation, has created the Holistic Holiday at Sea Vegan Cruise to provide a cruise option for vegans and vegetarians. Each day aboard the seven-day vegan cruise, the guests will dine on specially prepared macrobiotic inspired gourmet vegan meals. The directors of the program bring several well-known vegan and macrobiotic chefs, including executive chef Mark Hanna, to oversee the preparation of the vegan meals onboard the cruise.
Holistic Holiday at Sea’s vegan cruise program offers a lot more for vegan travelers than just vegan meals. The cruise is an all-encompassing educational experience with over 120 classes, workshops and lectures. These classes cover a wide range of holistic health topics including yoga and Pilates, vegan and macrobiotic cooking classes, massage, meditation, integrative medicine and much more. Many of the classes have a broad appeal, while others are tailored for a vegan audience.
Because I eat a wide variety of foods I guess never thought about how challenging it must be for a vegan to cruise. To have access to food 24/7 and to know that most of it doesn’t meet your needs has to be disappointing.
