Vegan eaters

I'm wondering if the main dining room on the Carnival Splendor has good food options for Vegans? Any other tips for food options much appreciated.

I'm sure that if you notify the Maitre d' as soon as you board, they will be able to provide some great meals away from the menu. I don't know that the menu has vegan options though.

I know that vegan is more strict than vegetarian, but we have an article here that may help -

That's how you can contact Carnival and ask what options they have.

Thank you for the information!

Thank you for posting this question. I cannot understand why more vegan food is not being served to all by cruise lines. Many people who are not vegans still eat vegan food, for a variety of reasons. The cruise lines sometimes seem stuck in the 1960s, food wise.

I also wonder why there are not more options on the MDR menus. My husband has to limit his protein and even vegetarian food can have too much protein. When we travel on a cruise, he notifies the cruise line ahead of time about his diet restriction and it has never been a problem. He even gets the cruiseeline to stock almond milk for him. After the first evening, the dining room staff will accommodate you.

No I cruised in September and sat in the evening meal with nothing. They could not Accommodate me I finally got a plain salad on the 3rd night. Everything has milk in it even the salad dressing. I am A carnival platinum member I am so disappointed in the ship. The chef was not good and didn't really care if I ate or not. I also emailed Carnival when I got home. I haven't heard from them. I already booking a cruise in January. Probably my last 🙁

Maybe the Conquest will be better. Have you contacted the "special needs" department regarding your diet? A friend did before our Alaskan cruise 5 years ago and they were able to help with her unusual requests. Yours do not seem so unusual. It might be worth the call.

It’s a vacation.

A vacation is a break from everyday life.

I suggest the NY strip at the Steakhouse on board.

‘I also recommend grabbing a handful of bacon. Pig, not that flavored soy crap.

Salmon is always a good choice, with a shrimp cocktail appetizer.

Pizza with pepperoni & sausage.


you won’t regret it, I promise

The friend we cruise with is vegan, and she has no trouble selecting items at dinner on Carnival cruises. We've sailed on the Liberty, Sunshine and Miracle together. The menu hasn't had many vegan choices, but she's always had an appetizer salad, entree and fruit plate. Hopefully you will also find some options on your next cruise if you don't notify the special needs department ahead of your cruise.

Some people that have been Vegans for a long time loose the ability to digest meat well. So yes, they would regret it and they would feel ill.

I had to change my diet and give up beef and pork a couple years ago. In an airport this year we did not have much time to eat so we went to Wendy's, I cheated and got a burger (I was looking forward to it). I used to love a burger and fries, this time I found it greasy, heavy and disgusting. That is the last beef burger I have had. When you change your diet, your taste change after time with the diet.

I'm not a vegan or vegetarian, but I'd like to see more vegetarian items in the MDR. I'd bet if they were on the MDR menu more people would order them, I would try them. My favorite thing onthe P.F. Chang menu is the curry vegetables.
