Holistic Holiday at Sea has an eighteen-year legacy of combining a passion for travel with the love of plant-based living and continued education. Our programing includes dynamic health, wellness, and fitness classes, extraordinary vegan dining, and lots of fun activities—including socials and island excursions. It’s no wonder that every year guests look forward to the Holistic Holiday at Sea Vegan Cruise!
Here are the top five reasons our guests join us year after year.
1. Inspirational & Educational Programming
With 40+ leading experts in plant-based nutrition, disease prevention and recovery, lifestyle change, mindfulness, movement, and cooking, our lineup has inspiring content all day. Our program starts in the morning with fitness, movement, and meditation and runs into the evening with more classes and entertainment. With 20-30 total classes each day, there is always something new to learn and try. The cruise ship environment cuts down on outside distractions and allows for guests to focus on learning and connecting directly with our speakers while onboard. There is no other vegan community experience quite like this cruise!
2. The Food
With buffets and seated dining, the Holistic Holiday at Sea culinary program has something for everyone. Whether you are trying to transition to a plant-based diet or are a long-time vegan, the meal options prepared by our highly experienced culinary team will delight your palate. The seated meals in the main dining room offer multiple courses and different options every day at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The buffet area offers a wide selection during breakfast and lunch, and allows people to choose as much or as little as they want in a more casual setting.
3. Caribbean Adventures
Cruising offers a travel experience unlike any other as the boat moves between tropical Caribbean ports while you sleep. Each port offers unique experiences for self-guided exploration. If you prefer a more curated experience, the cruise line offers excursions that you can add to your trip, including several vegan-friendly excursions, which will include the option for a vegan lunch.
4. Friendships & Community
With parties every night, open seating at meals, group fitness classes, and numerous other ways for our guests to connect, it is no wonder that so many long-term friendships and even love connections have started on the HHAS over the years.
5. The Cruise Experience
We have talked about the educational content, the curated vegan cuisine, and the amazing Caribbean itinerary, but these are only a few of the amenities that you will find onboard the MSC Divina. The ship also features a luxurious spa, large fitness facility, several pools, children’s programming, and so much more. Some of our guests focus exclusively on the Holistic Holiday at Sea programming while others enjoy a balanced mix of our programming and all the other unique experiences found onboard.
