Carnival Cruise Line introduces vegan menu

Carnival Cruise Line is rolling out new vegan menus in its dining rooms.

The additional dishes have been added onboard Carnival Freedom in Port Canaveral, Florida, and Carnival Horizon at Port Miami, also in Florida.

Offerings will feature a selection of appetisers, entrees and desserts without animal products and proteins made from meat substitutes. 

Meals include Hawaiian salmon poke, grilled tofu steak, Key Lime velvet cake and eggplant cutlet a la Parmigiana.

Its vegan menus will be implemented fleetwide in a phased approach through the end of the year. They will be introduced throughout autumn.

Richard Morse, Senior Vice President of Food and Beverage at Carnival Cruise Line, said: “Plant-based food options are a rising preference on our ships just as they are on land, and so the new dishes we’re introducing are a direct response to that shift. Our skilled chefs work to accommodate all dietary needs and preferences but building on our vegan offerings and emphasizing them with specific menus will help to make ordering easier in the dining room and preparation more efficient in the galley.”

The dishes have already been piloted on Carnival Magic, with Carnival Dream being the vessel. Guests will also be able to choose vegan dishes on Carnival Valor, Carnival Radiance, Carnival Miracle, Carnival Panorama and Mardi Gras by the end of this month. The remaining ships will gradually follow suit, including Carnival’s latest addition, Jubilee.
