Luxury cruise line Regent Seven Seas debuts new plant-based options

On Monday May 20th 2019, Regent Seven Seas Cruises, one of world’s leading luxury ocean cruise lines, announced the arrival of new plant-based menu items across its fleet. Beginning October 1st, 2019, more than 200 gourmet plant-based selections will be offered at breakfast, lunch & dinner to meet the evolving tastes of luxury travellers who are following vegan or vegetarian lifestyles, or just wish to dine healthier by avoiding animal products. Learn more about these newly announced Regent Seven Seas plant-based menu options below.

 

 

New dishes like Wild Mushroom Tart with Brittle Pie Crust, Mushroom Duxelles and Red Pepper Coulis; Falafel Fritters with Harissa Mayo, Cucumber, Mint, and Capers; Spiced Potato & Green Pea Samosas with Tamarind Chutney; and Summer Berry Pudding Chantilly showcase a range of cuisines including Italian, Greek, Middle Eastern, Korean, Thai, Vietnamese, Mexican, Italian, Malaysian, and more. Other menu highlights include nourishing Power Bowls and Poke Bowls, hearty pastas and noodles, light and refreshing salads and soups.

But it’s not all healthy wholefoods or ethnic options, as items like an Impossible Cheeseburger (vegan cheese onboard), and a Peach and Blueberry Cobbler (crumble, for us in the UK) with Cornmeal-Almond Topping on the menu offer more ‘junky’ comfort food.

“For luxury travellers who are increasingly adding more plant-based cuisine to their meals, we’re offering even more imaginative selections of bold, flavorful appetizers, entrees and desserts, with craveable tastes and mouth-watering presentations,” said Jason Montague, Regent Seven Seas Cruises president and chief executive officer. “Our expanded plant-based cuisine sets the highest benchmark in luxury cruising.”

 

Do note: Regent’s 200 plant-based selections will be fully integrated into the daily menus on Regent ships, instead of being offered on a separate menu.

The new offerings were developed by Regent’s culinary leadership team under the direction of Bernhard Klotz, Regent’s vice president of Food and Beverage, in concert with world-renowned chef, culinary instructor and author Christophe Berg (who also worked with sister brand Oceania Cruises – see their recent vegan menu info here).

“Plant-based cuisine appeals to a broad audience of luxury travelers,” Klotz explained. “This is an emerging, modern specialty cuisine that allows our guests to enjoy more flavorful foods that are in harmony with their current tastes and pushes the boundaries on Regent’s acclaimed culinary creativity and imagination.”

All fine wines & spirits throughout the ship are included as are all service gratuities and ground transfers. For guests on Concierge-level suites and higher, a one-night, pre-cruise hotel package is part of the Regent Seven Seas offering.

All cabins onboard Regent Seven Seas are balcony suites, come with inclusive in-cabin dining if you so wish. Being a luxury cruise ship, the Regent Seven Seas experience includes items like minibar as standard. It is filled to your preference, just ask your stateroom attendant. If you’re curious as to how a suite may look like, check out John from In The Loop Travel‘s Youtube video here. He has a selection of Regent Seven Seas videos for you to enjoy on his channel.

I’m sure if you’re looking for a luxury cruise experience, with extensive all-inclusive features and guaranteed vegan options, you should have your match in Regent Seven Seas. It is a very premium product with a price tag to match, so I am not likely to sail with them anytime soon. If you do and get to sample their new menu, please do get in touch and provide us with a ship & plant based menu review for others to see!
