Following the lead of Royal Caribbean International, Crystal Cruises has removed foods with trans fats from its ships. Via the measure, which went into effect last Wednesday, chefs aboard the line's two vessels have replaced all trans fat oils with trans fat-free oils. In addition, changes have been incorporated across the ships' menus and restaurants, from French fries to salad dressings. Crystal said its crew galleys also are now trans fat-free, and the cruise line will offer its crew more fresh fruits and vegetables and whole grains, as well as crew-only wellness classes and sporting activities.
