These areas are comfortably furnished and conveniently located near food and beverage areas. Smoking is expressly forbidden in all staterooms and suites, on verandas, or in any areas of the ship other than officially Designated Smoking Areas. Smoking in a stateroom or suite or on a veranda represents a serious fire and safety hazard to all guests and staff. Guests choosing to disregard this policy will be disembarked at the next port of call and may also be subject to additional fees that will be imposed to cover the costs associated with any damage to and the required cleaning of furnishings, verandas, and surrounding deck and accommodation areas. All areas other than those specified as Designated Smoking Areas will remain smoke-free. This includes all guest suites and staterooms, verandas, restaurants, public areas, the Casino, and all other areas of the ship. Cigar and pipe smoking is only permitted on the forward, starboard corner of the Pool Deck. The use of electronic cigarettes is allowed within designated smoking areas only.

  • Wheelchair Access & Special Needs - Guests with any medical condition(s) or special needs that may require treatment or attention or accommodation during the voyage, or needing to travel with medical apparatus, including wheelchairs, motorized scooters, oxygen therapy, etc., must advise Oceania Cruises in writing at the time of deposit. Please note some ports of call may not be suitable for guests with limited mobility and in such cases, may disallow debarkation with a wheelchair or motorized scooter or for any individual with limited mobility. Oceania Cruises is unable to accommodate women past their sixth month of pregnancy. Oceania Cruises has the right to refuse or revoke passage to anyone who, in its judgment, is in a physical, mental or emotional condition unfit for travel or whose comfort onboard may be compromised due to situations beyond the care that can be provided by Oceania Cruises. Oceania Cruises will under appropriate circumstances permit its guests to use special equipment such as those noted above, which satisfy the criteria stated in the Oceania Cruises' Policy Statement.

    Wheelchair Assistance

    If a guest needs wheelchair assistance at embarkation and debarkation, the request must be communicated prior to departure so appropriate arrangements for assistance can be made. If a guest is requesting wheelchair assistance at the airport, they must contact the airline directly.

    Oxygen

    Oceania Cruises does not provide oxygen for guests. If a guest requires oxygen, they will need to bring it on board with them. The guest may contact a supply company that will deliver it to the ship for them. Oceania will need to know how many containers, what size they are, and the type. Liquid oxygen is not allowed on board Oceania ships at any time. If the guest needs oxygen for their flights, they will need to arrange it directly with the airline.

    Delivery of Medical Equipment

    Having medical equipment brought on board is handled on a case by case basis. Oceania Cruises must receive the full dimensions, description of the equipment, name of the delivery company, and all other pertinent information prior to the cruise.

  • Currency - Oceania Cruises uses a cashless system based on the U.S. dollar. All onboard purchases and services, other than the casino, will be billed to an onboard account. You will be required to register an American Express, Mastercard, or Visa card during the embarkation process.

  • Electrical - Each stateroom has two 110 volt outlets and two 220 volt outlets which can be used for items such as battery chargers, hair dryers, razors, and personal hygiene items.

Ship Staterooms

The generous dimensions of Oceania Cruises' suites and staterooms afford the ultimate in luxury. Interiors are decorated with traditional hardwoods, rich fabrics, fine furnishings, and original art. A fashionable color palette blends sea, sky, and comforting earth tones to create a soothing environment. Plump the goose-down pillows of the Prestige Tranquility Bed, an Oceania Cruises exclusive, and relax in bed while reading the latest bestseller. Stretch out on the plush couch and watch live news broadcasts or the latest Hollywood blockbuster on the flat-screen television. Relax on the private teak veranda, a feature of the vast majority of accommodations.

Delightful

| Argentina Uruguay Brazil
I thoroughly enjoyed this cruise and plan to sail with you again

Montreal to London

| The "Blue Lagoon" in Iceland and Bruge were the highlights.
The staff of the Insignia was outstanding. The food was average. The itinerary was fun and interesting. However, after paying for concierge level accommodations, this was the smallest room we have ever had on ANY cruise. There wasn't room in the shower to turn around, let alone do anything else. There was no "Concierge Lounge" or any other such amenity. It should not have been advertised as, or charged as, a concierge level ship. I understand Oceania picked up this vessel from Regency and I think they should have passed. Usually Oceania has excellent food but this fare was routine. I didn't have a good steak the entire trip, and that included the Polo Room. I don't feel that we got our moneys worth this time.

oceania amazon river cruise

| Amazon river
this cruise was especially nice as it was not fully booked...about 250 people short of full....excellent lectures about area

Oceania Insignia

| Cuba
Enjoyed the cruise, would have liked to spend more time in Havana.

Nice small ship

| Singapore, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Hong Kong
Would go again although the ship is showing some age. Would depend upon port/ docking situations.

Amazon Interlude

| Amazon River
It was an amazing experience aboard the Oceania Insignia. The crew was awesome. Cruise Director Carson Turner was fantastic and the variety of entertainment brought onboard was superb. The Insignia Entertainment team did a great job on stage as well as coordinating activities daily like min-golf, shuffle board, ping pong, bean bag toss, etc. The food with Oceania was delicious during breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The specialty dinner options were outstanding. Toscano and Polo Grill. You will not leave hungry. The wait staff poolside were very good in checking on if you needed a drink but not overly pushy like I have seen on other cruise lines. Overall a fantastic experience and great product where guests seem to be loyal to.

Best upscale ship

| Cuba
We have been on over 50 cruises on numerous cruise lines. The experience is always exceptional in every way. The cruise line prides itself on cuisine and justifiably so. The food is delicious with a wide and changing selection. The specialty restaurants are complimentary. The crew is the best at sea, everyone one of them is friendly and could not be more accommodating. Entertainment is first rate with great variety using a very talented cast. Try it you wont regret it!

Caribbean Palette Cruise on the Insignia

| Caribbean and Bermuda

Insignia Cruise Miami to Iceland July 1,- 195th

| Miami to Iceland
We had smooth sailing the crew and food service was probably the best ever, if you like to eat! The side trips were very good, and on an off the boat was very easy. The Library was excellent as was the Horizon Lounge. All in all it was a very relaxing trip. The entertainment was very good also. The port in Newfoundland was interest, and also Greenland and Iceland . It the weather would have been better, fog, rain etc. we could have enjoyed it more, however you cannot control the weather. The Fjords were great!

Insignia

| Key west, Belize, Roatan, costa maya
Afternoon tea is nice, but hors d oeuvres at bar would be a great addition, especially if there were healthy selections. The sommeliers were terrific

Oceania Insignia Oct 2019

| Caribbean
The ship is beautiful and the perfect small ship! The food was outstanding and I especially appreciated the way they ran the buffets. They served you from the buffet instead of allowing people to reach into it and provided a great clean environment. The service was impeccable. The ports were perfect and all excursions were conducted very nicely.

Classy, But Not Stuffy

| Key West, Belize, Roatan, Costa Maya
Will definitely book an Oceania cruise. It's an excellent value for an upscale experience!!

Oceania Cruises

| French Polonyesia and The Hawiann Islands
We loved our Oceania Cruise. We will surely recommend Oceania to our family and friends. Why, we are thinking of taking another Oceania cruise in the next few years. The price was so affordable for the service they rendered. The organization and efficiency with the handling of every aspect of our cruise was incredible. The entire staff treated us like we were so very special to them. We wanted to pack them all in our luggage and bring them home. The ship was immaculate through and through. The food was delicious and so many different food choices to behold. The entertainment and activities onboard were very organized and so many choices to suite just about anyone's interests. We have traveled with other cruise companies but we can say in all honesty Oceania will always be our first choice from now on.

INSIGNIA nordic

| miami to stockhom
Entertainment on first part of cruise Miami to Rekjavek was excellent. Rekjavek to Stockholm was poor. Too much dependence on cruise staff to entertain (some were marginally talented). The Insignia band was excellent but they need a screen around the drummer who drown out the singers (therefore necessitating the volume of their mics to be at screech level.

Cruisin'

| St. Barts, Martinique, St. Lucia, St. Kitts & Puerto Rico
Oceania's written policy of no open-toed sandals to be worn in the dining room and gourmet restaurants should either be enforced or eliminated. It was unfortunate that we were in 2 ports when shops were mostly closed on a Sunday and on Christmas Day but we still enjoyed walking around the dock areas where there were busy venders.

trip to iceland

| iceland
we waited 4 hours to get on board after flying all night. they did not even give us coffee and donuts.

Small Ship

| France Spain, Portugal.
being a world cruise the ship personnel claimed that it was difficult to bring entertainment aboard. normally they would do so. the food was great with lobster, huge shrimp and other offerings every evening. This cruise raised the standard for all future cruises. It was great being on a small ship with 343 cabins.

Awe of America

| Canada, Nova Scotia, New England, Norfolk, and Charleston
We love Oceania Cruiseline. The cruises are always filled with special lectures, music, games, dances and fitness classes. We are never disappointed! I did suggest they have a daily line-dance class held in the morning or early afternoon. Most of the dance opportunities are late at night

Insignia radiates her own unique warmth and character. Her distinctive personality shines through from the moment you first step into her newly redesigned, neo-classical lobby or Toscana, resplendent in rich new fabrics and furnishings that reflect the charisma of Tuscany. Insignia boasts decks and verandas graced with the finest teak and exquisite custom stone and tile work. To ensure the elegance shines throughout the entire experience, there is all new Villeroy & Boch china, the finest silver and crystal, and a distinctive museum-quality art collection that is an eclectic melding of traditional and contemporary, with a touch of whimsy.
