River cruises are now becoming a possibility for vegan travellers! For many years, this type of cruise has been more difficult for us to enjoy because the galleys onboard weren't set up properly to allow for extra space needed to create plant-based menu items. It was a shame because we were missing out on opportunities to enjoy the rivers of Europe, Portugal or France...but not anymore!

AmaWaterways, renowned for its immersive river cruises, has recently broadened its culinary offerings to include dedicated menus for travellers embracing vegan or plant-based dietary preferences.

Woo Hoo!
