Vegan Options for Sustainability – Richard Branson

Vegan Options for Sustainability – Richard Branson

Virgin Voyages, the cruise line under the Virgin Group name, is out to disrupt the cruising industry. And its first port of call? Sustainability and plant-based food.

The Scarlet Lady is Virgin Voyages’ first cruise ship. Targeted at younger holidaymakers, specifically, those aged 18 to 35, the 110,000-tonne vessel will carry 2,750 guests.

On the Scarlet Lady, Virgin will be ditching the conventional buffet that often appears onboard cruise ships. In its place, will be more than 20 restaurants, lounges, and casual eateries with made-to-order menus. The decision was made, in part, to improve sustainability. “In doing this, we’re cutting back on waste, drastically lowering our energy usage and emissions, and setting up Scarlet Lady to be the future of sustainable sea travel,” Virgin told cruise industry publication Cruise Radio.

The ship’s signature restaurant, called Razzle Dazzle, holds a “vegetarian forward” focus. Its vegan and vegetarian meals are inventive and made with consciously sourced ingredients. Diners can enjoy beverages from a juice bar and a cocktail menu that changes nightly. And twice during each voyage, Razzle Dazzle will hold a Drag Brunch featuring entertainment, glitter, and glamour.
