(5 p.m. EDT) -- Vegan and vegetarian passengers sailing on Regent Seven Seas Cruises can look forward to more dining variety, with the addition of 200 plant-based dishes across the fleet beginning October 1, 2019.

The new dishes will be added to the ships' existing menus for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as dessert. Dining is one of many perks included in Regent Seven Seas fares, along with alcoholic beverages, all gratuities, unlimited internet and shore excursions.

“For luxury travelers who are increasingly adding more plant-based cuisine to their meals, we’re offering even more imaginative selections of bold, flavorful appetizers, entrees and desserts, with craveable tastes and mouth-watering presentations,” said the line's president and CEO, Jason Montague. “Our expanded plant-based cuisine sets the highest benchmark in luxury cruising."

Regent Seven Seas' plant-based dishes will be spread out among a variety of cuisine types such as Italian, Greek, Middle Eastern, Korean, Thai, Vietnamese, Mexican, Italian and Malaysian. Highlights include Wild Mushroom Tart with Brittle Pie Crust, Mushroom Duxelles and Red Pepper Coulis; Falafel Fritters with Harissa Mayo, Cucumber, Mint and Capers; Spiced Potato and Green Pea Samosas with Tamarind Chutney; and Summer Berry Pudding Chantilly.

Regent Seven Seas' new menu items follow a similar move by sister brand Oceania Cruises, which unveiled new plant-based food offerings in April 2019.
