ALL VEGAN CRUISES
Leading the way is German based specialist, Vegan Travel, who have been organising specifically vegan travel for several years.
Dirk Bocklage, director of Vegan Travel comments “It is very hard for vegans to find holiday destinations. It is not just food, but everything including toiletries, linens and wines that form part of the Vegan lifestyle. We always wanted to do something for holidays but could never agree on a location due to the difficulty of obtaining vegan food and vegan products. Vegan Travel was founded in 2013 and chartered a Vegan River cruise. We didn’t know what to expect. There was so much demand that we continued chartering. Most of our clients prefer an all-vegan cruise with compassionate people from around the world. We now run two or three river cruises each year and are now running ocean cruises too. It’s our dream to offer all-vegan cruises all year round one day.”
During their cruises, they endeavour to make sure that everything is as totally vegan as possible. Since the food for the staff is prepared in separate facilities, it means that the main galley providing food for passengers can be kept totally vegan. This ensures there is no risk of contamination with non-vegan produce. Once on board, passengers can use 100% vegan toiletries, drink vegan wines and enjoy vegan alternatives to popular drinks such as Pina Colada using plant based cream. In addition, recommendations are provided for vegan restaurants and shops at every port of call.
