“Each and every one of our menus will have vegan offerings. Taking care of allergies and special requirements is extremely important to us.”

Disney’s newest cruise ship will offer vegan menus in each of its onboard restaurants.

While chefs have always provided vegan options on Disney’s Cruises upon request, Forbes reports that the brand’s ‘latest and greatest ship’ will be the first to feature vegan menus as part of its onboard dining experience.

There will be three rotating dining locations: Arendelle – a Frozen Dining Adventure, Worlds of Marvel dining experience, and 1923 – a golden age of Hollywood-themed dining room.

Although details of the menus are still under wraps, they will feature light and fresh California flavours. There will be a blend of Asian, European, and South American cuisines and the menu will be built with the whole family in mind.

 “Each and every one of our menus will have vegan offerings. Taking care of allergies and special requirements is extremely important to us,” Disney Cruise Line said.

“We want families to sail with peace of mind.” 

The Disney Wish plans to make its debut sail next summer on 9 June 2022, from Port Canaveral, FL to the Bahamas.

It is the fifth ship in the Disney Cruise Line fleet and will have 1,254 staterooms having the capacity to hold 4000 passengers.

The ship will also be the first Disney cruise ship to have the AquaMouse – the brand’s first ever water attraction – alongside other activities for children and entertainment for adults.

Vegan cruises

Disney isn’t the only cruise line to offer plant-based options.

As vegan cruises are becoming more popular with travelers, leading travel companies including Virgin Voyages, Royal Caribbean International, and Oceania have embraced plant-based dining.

In 2019, Scarlet lady – Virgin Voyages’ first cruise ship- ditched the conventional buffet set up for more than 20 restaurants, lounges, and casual eateries with made-to-order menus – including a “vegetarian forward” focus – at the ship’s signature restaurant, Razzle Dazzle.

In the same year, Royal Caribbean also added a new vegan menu featuring edamame-stuffed portobello mushrooms, vegan spaghetti bolognese, and orzo pasta stew with green vegetables to its main dining room.

Around the same time luxury cruise company Oceania rolled out vegan menus on all of its six ships after introducing a new range of vegan breakfast and lunch options for passengers in 2018.

“These new plant-based options are flavorful, colorful, bold, and creative,” Bob Binder, the president & CEO of Oceania Cruises, said at the time.

He told Forbes Magazine: “We are delighted to expand our culinary offerings to please an even wider array of palates.

 “[We] offer our guests more diverse choices to suit today’s wellness-focused lifestyles.”
