Default Vegan meals: which cruises handle these best?

Any other vegan cruisers out there have some tips? I found a few threads on this topic, but most were several years old and I think (hope!) that as healthy diets have become more popular the cruise lines will have gotten better at accommodating us.

My last cruise (which was RCCL in 2007) was a whole lot of salads, veggie burgers, spaghetti with marinara sauce, and plain bread (which is fine for a day or two, but not for an entire week) and NO desserts. (unless you consider eating some cut fruit while watching everyone else at the table eat something beautiful and ending in the word "flambe" to be "dessert") Even making up for some of the calories with wine, I left the ship after a week having lost three pounds. :-)

I'm shopping for cruises again and wondering which cruise lines serve the best vegan meals and the best variety of vegan meals. Also, desserts - I love desserts!

Also interested in knowing which of the specialty restaurants on board offer vegan meals. Bonus points for Indian, Thai,or gourmet-type meals.

To clarify: "vegan" means no meat of any kind (this includes fish, chicken and meat broths), no eggs, and no dairy products, including butter and cheese.

I'm booked on the Carnival Triumph on Sept. 9!

So, updating my question a bit for any info specific to Carnival or to this ship... however, I don't expect this to be my last ever cruise so current info about other lines still welcome.

For the most part, those who do vegan meals the best also do regular meals the best. And, as we all know, food is very subjective and what one person loves, another will hate.

Personally, I don't think the food on Carnival is all that bad, but I do believe there are other cruise lines that offer better food. Depending on your needs, lifestyle, and budget, if you're a foodie, it's really tough to beat Celebrity.

Bu there are others out there that might fit your needs - and that's the best part of cruising is trying them all until you find the one that's best for you.

I know that MSC has vegan at dinner. They will have a ship year round from Miami starting later this year.
