An Innovative Plant-Based Program

Delicious Healthy Dining

Eating healthy aboard our ships is an experience that balances taste and well-being.

As the Official Cruise Line of the National Health Association, we proudly serve a rotating selection of inspiring salt, oil, and sugar-free plant-based dishes. For over seven decades, the National Health Association (NHA) has advocated a whole-foods, plant-based diet emphasizing the importance of minimally processed meals that are prepared without added salt, oil, and sugar.

Start your day with fruit smoothies or oatmeal and date pancakes, then move to veggie enchiladas, roasted pumpkin risotto gremolata and eggplant cannelloni with pine nut romesco sauce for lunch and dinner. Save room for incredible desserts like chia truffles with date coconut sauce and mango lime tart too. These are guilt-free culinary indulgences that you’ll want another bite of.

At Windstar, we prioritize honoring your health and dietary preferences to ensure you enjoy a delectable culinary experience on your vacation. Our menus boast an array of flavorful alternatives, including nutritious plant-based and gluten-free options thoughtfully crafted to reduce salts, oils, and sugars without compromising on taste. Our innovative program rotates daily and offers plenty of options throughout the day, so it’s not just an afterthought or a substitution, but a focus for our culinary team.

Wherever you sail, whether you're vegan, vegetarian, or have other specific dietary needs, you can explore distant small ports and little-known destinations without compromising your food choices onboard.
