About Oceania Cruises
Oceania Cruises is characterized by first-class and modern luxury. The atmosphere and entertainment on board is typically American, but relaxation and recreation is absolutely in the focus. The luxury fleet offers four small ships for 684 passengers and two ships for about twice as many passengers. Due to the small size of the ships idyllic small ports and nice little coastal towns can be called, which makes the routes of Oceania Cruises particularly appealing. All ships convince with a personal atmosphere and excellent service. The board language is English.
The ship Insignia
As part of the renovation project OceaniaNEXT from December 2018 until the beginning of 2019 the Insignia was transformed into an almost new ship and now captivates with the finest elegance. The decks are made of the finest teak, custom stone coating and high quality tiles. The lounges, suites and cabins aboard this ship are luxurious and feature neo-classical furniture. Four first-class restaurants with free choice of seats and dining time offer exquisite food, eight lounges and bars complete the culinary offer. There is also a fitness center and a spa area aboard Insignia. The 180-meter-long ship accommodates 684 guests at double occupancy. There are few children aboard, there is no childcare.

The minibar with soft drinks, fine soft towels and bathrobes, a flat-screen TV and a DVD player with an extensive media library are just some of the amenities in the cabins and suites.
