Bar Harbor Bans Cruise Ships Until 2021

Dish It Up: Health-Conscious Cruise Cuisine

Here’s how some lines are boosting nutrition in their latest fresh and full-flavored fare.

Forget the Christmas cookies you gobbled with abandon. It’s so last month. Actually, it’s so last year. We begin 2019 in gratitude, for we can now dine more healthfully — and deliciously — while cruising more than ever before. Organic, low-calorie, vegetarian, vegan — you name it.

It’s never ho-hum for vegans sailing Oceania Cruises; this line rotates more than 250 vegan dishes on the Grand Dining Room menu. And hipster-y U by Uniworld showcases plenty of plant-based dishes, including a mean quinoa burger.
