“We are excited to add to our existing lineup of premier culinary offerings with the launch of our exciting, new globally-inspired and vegan menus,” said CEO of Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line Oneil Khosa.
Delicious, fresh and innovative cuisine is an element of the Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line experience that truly sets us apart, and these new menus are sure to wow guests.”
The company, which sails from Palm Beach, Florida to Grand Bahama Island on two-day cruises or “cruise and stay” options, will include vegan options like Orange Quinoa Salad, Zucchini Lasagna, Thai Green Curry, Coconut Soup, Green Lentil, Potato and Mushroom Burgers, Crispy Hearts of Palm Cakes, Confit of Fennel and Caramelized Parsnip.
Bahamas Paradise joins the list of cruise lines adding or increasing vegan options in order to cater to the growing demand for vegan food as consumers’ dietary choices continue to change.
A report by research firm Global Data found that America saw a 600% increase in the number of people who identify as vegan in the three-year period leading up to 2017.
Richard Branson’s Virgin Group will also feature a vegan-friendly eatery in its cruise line Virgin Voyages which is set to launch next year as it aims to be more environmentally friendly.
The demand for vegan travel is growing so much that last November, the first-ever vegan cruise set sail from Brisbane Australia to the Pacific islands, offering a health and wellness experience with whole food, plant-based offerings, complete with yoga and meditation.
Guests on Bahamas Paradise can request vegan options while making a reservation or make a request once on board.
