AmaWaterways launches vegan and plant-based menu items
While many people are turning away from meat and seeking vegan and vegetarian dishes, it isn’t always easy for them. Even in a world where people openly decry the killing of animals for their meals, restaurants don’t always have any suitable items on their menus. It is equally difficult to access vegan and plant-based food on cruises, but AmaWaterways is changing that.Based in Calabasas, California, AmaWaterways is a river cruise company offering its guests cruises in Europe, Egypt, Southern Africa, South America and Southeast Asia. Known as a luxurious river cruise option, the cruise line had a fleet of 26 ships as of 2022.
Speaking of AmaWaterway’s new menu offerings, the river cruise company’s Co-Founder and Executive Vice President Kristin Karst says she is a passionate believer that “plant-based meals are the future.” The new menu offerings will offer guests a visually beautiful and palate-pleasing culinary experience.

Among the highlights, vegan and vegetarian guests can enjoy appetizers such as oven-roasted eggplant bruschetta with herbs, garlic chickpeas bruschetta with a touch of balsamic vinegar.
