Default Vegan meals

Hi,

We have been on three cruises in the past three years, all RCCL. We have become vegan a year ago, which means no meat, dairy including cheese, or eggs. Our last cruise was over News Years on RCCL Rhapsody from Aruba to Tampa. Dining was difficult as the cruise lines all advertise "vegetarian" meals but we found this includes cream sauces or cheese in many dishes. Some nights our waiter and headwaiter started yelling at us when we said we could not eat what was served as it contained egg, cheese, or cream. They typically did not know what was in the food when asked. I've read a lot of cruise web sites including this one but usually do not turn up much if any info on vegan meals or dining. Of course we had our T/A book the info to RCCL we were vegan and required modified meals, but this info seems like it doesn't ever make it to the ship. Are there cruise lines and if so which ones that do a better job of fixing vegan meals? Are there theme cruises for vegetarians/vegans? Any other ideas on how to meet our needs without embarassment? The good thing was in 6 days I did lose 2 pounds on the cruise, but the food service was not very enjoyable. Thanks,

Andy
