Insignia

Insignia is the sister ship to the country club-style Regatta and Nautica and offers itineraries that larger luxury and 5-star ships are unable to due to their size, all the while maintaining the ultimate in club cruising standards.

Identical to her sister ships, the 30,000 tonne ship carries 684 guests with 400 crew members, offering one of the best passengers to crew ratios at sea. The dress code onboard Insignia is 'country club casual', though despite being a less formal cruise-style ship, the standards remain second to none.

Having undergone a multi-million dollar transformation which resulted in a virtually new ship, Insignia offers every luxury you might expect onboard. Insignia's decor is made from the finest teak, custom carved stone and stunning tile work. The lounges, suites and staterooms are filled with a luxurious, neo classical-style and beautiful furnishings. All staterooms and suites feature Oceania Cruises patented Tranquillity Bed, comprising of a luxurious mattress, down feather pillows and duvets which are covered in the finest 700-count Egyptian cotton, with approximately 70% of the cabins boasting private verandas.

Customer reviews for Insignia

It was a really good cruise despite some strong winds. The food has to be amongst the best that I have had on a cruise ship. The staff were as usual very attentive and looked after us very well. The decor was excellent and the ship had only completed a refurbishment 2 weeks before. Fantastic. The entertainment was not up to standard; one of the speakers was poor and the other's subject matter was not of much interest. There needed to be more speakers particularly as we had 6 sea days. The guest entertainers lacked variety. The 2 who joined the ship half way through, one was a ventriloquist and the other a magician and OK for one performance but not 2.

End of October is not a time to do a fall cruise. 4 out of the 8 stops were cancelled due to various weather conditions and whilst this is not the cruise lines fault their response is. The line provided free drinks for 2 evenings to compensate passengers, as I had bought a premium drinks package this was of no benefit to me. When I asked at reception how I was to be compensated I was told " it was the luck of the draw" and I was not to receive anything! In relation to the cruise itself I found the selection of tours disappointing. The entertainment was acceptable and much better than 5 years ago when I last used oceania ( although this is not a high bar). Food is good and service is like most cruises, good in parts. Outside of the cruise you had provided accommodation and transfers all of which worked well except for the transfer from hotel in new York to cruise terminal. We had to wait one and a half hours make 4 phone calls and listen to excuse after excuse - very poor
