An all-vegetarian menu? That's the plan at Holland America

Now you can go on a cruise and *NOT* have to worry about your food options. Is this cool or what?! I am not a cruise guy and have never been on one, but if an occasion arises in the future, I know that I would look for Holland America as my first option!

Read on...

Holland America's latest plan to draw more customers: Serve more vegetables.

The Seattle-based cruise operator on Wednesday announced that it is revamping its food offerings to offer more options for vegetarians and vegans than any other line.

The changes include the addition of a new, all-vegetarian menu that will be available in the dining rooms on Holland America's 15 ships and the addition of 30 new vegetarian dishes to standard dining room menus.

The all-vegetarian menu will be available upon request at lunch and dinner and include 22 vegetarian and vegan dishes. Among the choices: Portobello Mushroom and Chipotle Quesadillas; Vietnamese Vegetable Spring Rolls; Curried Vegetable Empanadas; Spicy Lentil and Garbanzo Salad; Sweet and Sour Vegetable Tempura; Vegetable Jambalaya; Grilled Vegetable and Tofu Kebobs; and Baked Cheese Polenta with Mushrooms and Artichoke Hearts.

"Many more people are choosing a vegetarian culinary experience, yet the options can be limited," Holland America's executive vice president, Richard Meadows, says in a statement accompanying the announcement. "By offering a complete vegetarian-only menu and the largest vegetarian selection at sea, we are ensuring that all guests can take part in an exceptional dining experience while cruising with Holland America Line."

Other lines that have expanded vegetarian offerings in recent years include Celebrity Cruises, which also has an all-vegetarian menu available in its main restaurants during lunch and dinner.

The 30 new vegetarian dishes being added to the main dining room menus on Holland America ships also will be available at the vessels' casual Lido buffets during lunch.

I know this is an old thread, but I just discovered this message board, haha. Anyway, I have actually sailed with Holland America a lot and I can already attest to them having a separate veggie (and vegan) section on all their menus. Royal Caribbean does as well, but Holland America's is much better. Overall, cruising is very veggie friendly and of course a lot of fun. :)
