The local food movement’s maxim of “grown here, not flown here” is now echoing across Hawaii, which currently imports nearly 90 percent of its foodstuffs. UnCruise Adventures supports the state’s move toward sustainable self-sufficiency by building relationships with Hawaiian farmers and vendors such as Eti Angst of Kumu Farms, who personally delivers fresh papayas, eggplant, arugula, and other GMO-free produce straight from her Molokai garden to Safari Explorer’s galley.
Great news for vegans: Oceania Cruises
recently introduced extensive plant-based menus at sea, with 200-plus tasty dishes – think truffle mac and cheese, green curry stir-fry, and coco-vanilla cashew crème brûlée. The healthy new offerings are available in the main restaurant and Terrace Café on each of the line’s ships, as well as by request when dining in specialty venues.
