My expectations for last year’s Vegan Cruise to Alaska with the Vegan Cruise Planners, The Vegan Zombie, Vegan Black Metal Chef, and Miyoko Schinner were very high, but still I was amazed when they were exceeded. Alaska has been on my bucket list after watching the film Chasing Ice, although I was not sure a if cruise was for me. Let me say now–underscore and all caps–that any cruise offered by Franci and Curtis, who are the Vegan Cruise planners, is a guaranteed unparalled cruise vacation for anyone. The ship was gorgeous, the service was top rate, the seated and mini meals and parties were so good, but the scenery was the star. I cried the entire time we were in Glacier Bay, overwhelmed by the beauty and wonder of the glaciers. (Yes, signs of global warming are apparent.) And, as tends to be the norm on vegan vacations, close friendships were made. The 2016 Vegan Vacation at Sea to Panama sails from Ft Lauderdale to Panama, Oct 30th to November 9th!
We will be sailing away on what will be an unforgettable vegan voyage to the Panama Canal with Vegan Cruise Planners and a group of interesting vegans and those who are not yet vegan. I’ll be joining Brian the Vegan Black Metal Chef, they guys we know as The Vegan Zombie, and looking forward to meeting award winning author and raw chocolate maker, Laurel Anderson on this sure to be memorable voyage. Our group will have our own dedicated dining room and servers for meals. Small snacks and mini meals are always available too–you’ll be glad for ths ship’s fitness center! Last year’s private vegan shore excursions were awesome, and I’m excited to learn what’s on for this time. Friendships will be made organically as we dine and play and talk together.
Sailing dates are October 30th through November 9th, 2016, and we’re departing from and returning to Ft. Lauderdale, FL. We’ll spend 7 nights on Holland America Line’s luxurious ms Zuiderdam while visiting the beauty and warmth of the Caribbean and Panama Canal. Ports of call for the trip include Half Moon Cay, Aruba, Curacao, Panama Canal, Gatun Lake, Panama, and Costa Rica. Guests will enjoy creative cooking demonstrations from both myself and the other vegan chefs in the ship’s state of the art Culinary Arts Center, and we’ll dine on delicious vegan meals custom prepared for our group by Holland America Line’s culinary staff. We’ll also have exclusive private vegan shore excursions, as well as private vegan parties and social events. You’ll make lifelong friends and have an unforgettable time!
