"The Holistic Holiday at Sea™ cruise is a transforming experience. It's an opportunity to expand your knowledge and eat perfectly healthy foods while relaxing in the beautiful Caribbean. It wouldn't surprise me if you came back from your vacation a different person."
Neal Barnard, M.D., Washington, DC

Vegan Vacations aboard Holistic Caribbean Cruise

Structured vacations such as cruises can be challenging for vegans. Cruise ships are known for their around-the-clock buffets and extravagant dining rooms, but many of the vegetarian options offered on cruise ships include dairy or egg products, making them off limits for vegan travelers.

To help alleviate this challenge, Holistic Holiday at Sea has developed a vegan cruise vacation. While onboard, guests will be treated to three healthy, macrobiotically-inspired, vegan meals each day. These gourmet vegan meals are all prepared under the supervision of cruise chef Mark Hanna and his staff of vegan and macrobiotic chefs. Many of the items offered on the holistic vegan menu are brought on board by Holistic Holiday at Sea specifically for the Holistic Holiday at Sea program.

More than Just Vegan Food on this Vacation

Aside from the three vegan meals, vacationers will also have access to over one hundred classes, lectures and workshops covering a variety of alternative and holistic health practices. Topics covered include yoga and Pilates, meditation, massage, integrative medicine, macrobiotics, and cooking classes. There are also a number of social events specifically for the holistic cruise participants.

Classes of Specific Interest to Vegan Vacationers

There are several cruise presenters who are of specific interest to the vegan participants. Many years Dr. Neal Barnard joins the cruise and edifies all with several lectures. Dr. Barnard is the founder of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine and a lobbyist for the vegan foods industry. Dr. Barnard is responsible for the development of the new four food groups, a vegan food pyramid. In the past Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, the force behind the movie Forks Over Knives has also presented on the cruise.

Also of interest to vegans are the cooking classes. Previous chefs have included Isa Chandra Moskowitz, a well-known vegan chef and author Vegan with a Vengeance, Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World, and Veganomicon – The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook. Colleen Patrick-Goudrau, Jessica Porter, Bryant Terry, Christina Pirello and many other popular chefs have taught classes in the past. To see this year's lineup, visit our Program Page.
