After 45 cruises, the sale prices on Caribbean cruises due to the cancellation of Cuban cruises and the luxury, premier branding of Oceania convinced us to try the Insignia. The ship itself is truly a classic beauty! Unfortunately, we did not experience the premier service and the excellence of food that Oceania advertises. The food in the Grand Dining room was okay: choices were very limited when compared to other lines; meat quality was low and bordered on tasteless; and Seafood seemed to be prepared without any seasoning. The buffet was pretty much the same, as it serves the same food as the Grand Dining room. Service in the Grand Dining room was extremely slow and impersonal. Service in the buffet which has no self-service option, is also slow with servers often just staring into space while you wait to be served, The culinary highlights are the specialty restaurants, Toscano and Polo Grille, and surprisingly, Waves grille. Service was good to great in the locations and the food matched. They were the best specialty restaurants we’ve experienced! And Waves burgers were excellent! The cabin was very good and comfortable except for the tiny bathroom and shower. Oceania includes free sodas in the cabin refrigerator, but we had to ask for refills. No mention was made of fruit in the room, which is a nice option on other lines. The itinerary was okay. We weren’t able to dock in Roatan or Harvest Caye and had to tender. Tendering was handled well. Cozumel excursions from the ship are very limited and the Destination Services desk knew next to nothing about beaches in the area. Thankfully, the WiFi was okay and we were able to research beaches! The Jolly Roger Catamaran snorkeling tour in Roatan was fantastic. Clear, warm, blue water and a beautiful reef! The food served was good and the rum flowed. Harvest Caye is the only private island that we’ve been to where there isn’t any free food or drink options. Oceania says if you want free food or drink, simply walk right back onboard since Harvest Caye has its own dock. But alas, there’s a giant NCL ship at the dock and Insignia tenders, The beach was overcrowded, the water wasn’t clear, but the zip-lines were great. Costa Maya was okay, but given its limitations and crowds, it’s amazing that cruise lines still go there. Onboard activities are next to nothing. Good luck finding something to do on a rainy sea day! In the evenings, there are no lounge bands in the bars. But there is a string quartet in the atrium. Really, are we waiting for an iceberg? The ships singers and dancers were good, but their voices were often drowned out by the band. The guest entertainment was an electric harpest. Interesting the first night, but 2 nights! Ugh! The comedian was a dud, with more people walking out than staying and she also got 2 nights! Oceania definitely needs to step up the entertainment onboard. Read Less

Heard about quality of this cruise line and price was right. The food was as good as promised. The specialty restaurant (free) Toscana was simply outstanding. The grand dinning room and the buffet were also above average. The ship was nicely appointed and the crew was very good. The small size (680 passangers) was both an advantage and disadvantage. More crew to passangers, but entertainment was limited and sometimes not good. The boarding and disembarkment were very smooth. Our Taxi was right in front of our exit and was available when we got off. The Balcony (Concierge) cabin was rather small (216 sq.ft.). The shower was incredibly small and I'm only 5'10". We had the absolutely best Cruise Director of the 15+ cruises, Carson Turner. He put on a show of his own about Broadway and he had a great voice and even better banter with the audience. It was the highlight of the cruise. The lecturer on Mayan and Aztec civilations was quite good ( Susan Cares) We toured a Mayan ruin when we were in Costa Maya. The guide was really good and the ruins were impressive. This culture has been an interest of mine. All in all I would cruise Oceania again if the price is right. Read Less

We chose this as an add on cruise after going transatlantic on celebrity silhouette which was great. We had been on Crystal in February and had been highly recommended Oceania by friends so We thought Wed try it and compare. Embarkation didn’t go smoothly as neither the travel agent or the cruise company let us know where they were leaving from and we were asking all up and down the docks and no one seemed to know. We booked an outside cabin and we felt it was tiny. Hard to get in and out of the shower. The entertainment was poor and they didn’t change the entertainers...citing, back by popular demand for the comedienne...we had already walked out of her first show. The best show was about the life and journey of the entertainment director. A member of staff in the little buffet beside the pool was extremely rude to us and we had missed breakfast so were a bit confused about getting something to eat. The food was our biggest complaint. One of us is dairy free , something most ships take in their stride, but this ship would wait till I was sitting at the table(and I filled in my menu 48 hours in advance) and tell me that almost everything I picked was not possible!!! Can’t be bothered more like. This ruined many mealtimes for me and I’ve never felt like that on Cunard celebrity or p and o...who will let me know way ahead if something can’t be done and recommend something else....finally I blew up but had to wait three hours before I could even speak to someone from pursers...not THE purser...who as I expected said sorry I’ll bring it up at the next meeting. I’ve had no written apology whatsoever or any further comments...not what you expect from this class of ship. Room service was great and 50% of restaurant staff okay...most don’t know basic things like checking if your food is okay and if it isn’t asking if they can get you something else...this happened when we both ordered lamb chops and couldn’t get them cut...so we went hungry.. Ports were caribean and the two tender days it took so long to get off we didn’t even bother. At night going for drinks the only music is in the piano bar but there are only about 30 seats so we could never get a seat so we would go upstairs and there was no music. Read Less
