Oceania has become the Amtrak of cruise lines

Review for Insignia to Bermuda

Liked itinerary and had sailed with Oceania before. Time in Bermuda was cut short. Entertainment was sad. Ocenia has changed since it sold out to big cruise line. I would not travel with them again. I felt like Ocenia nickled and dimed you every time they could. As a fellow cruise guess said: "They have already added a tip to everything and charged you for a Drink ...

We chose to go on the Insignia because it was our 4th cruise with Oceania which we enjoyed. Location, we live 10 minutes by car from the dock. The cruise line is not what it once was. The crew as usual was very accommodating, but it was obvious that they are very short staffed. One evening in the dining room we were seated and 10 minutes after us 3 tables were seated and ordered there ...

This was our first time on Oceania. We love Bermuda and enjoy smaller ships when they are available. I was so excited to again return to Hamilton and St. George as opposed to the Dockyard. The ship was very nice. The staff all around the ship couldn't be more pleasant, helpful and generally a pleasure to be around. Food in the Grand Dining Room and the buffet was excellent as was the ...

My wife and I chose Oceania Insignia since it was the only ship small enough to dock right in Hamilton and in St George instead of the traditional large ship port of the Royal Naval Dockyard. We also chose Oceania because of the cruise line's reputation as a first-class upscale boutique type of cruise line since we are big fans and repeat cruisers with Celebrity. We were very disappointed from ...

This was not a Mediterranean Cruise as the lead-in shows. This was the last two segments (39 days) of an Around the World Cruise that started in January. We were on the first segment at the beginning and there were a significant number of changes and cancellations on that cruise along with serious COVID restrictions. We were booked on the original last two segments, Cape Town to New York. Since ...

This was a crossing that lasted 23 days. We chose it largely for the ports. Unfortunately we were closed out of several due to Covid or weather. I understand weather as a reason for not docking, but I don't get the poor transparency. We all had to jump through the Bermuda protocol hoops prior to embarkation but then we didn't go there- likely due to folks not understanding the protocols. ...

A very nice cruise even with the itinerary changes.

This was originally the first segment of an around the world cruise. There were a couple of Itinerary changes prior to departure due to countries not allowing travel. We were disappointed that we would finish the segment in Papeete vs. continuing on to Auckland. New Zealand, Fiji, American Samoa, along with some ports in French Polynesia were cancelled. Oceania added two days in San Francisco and ...

We had been quite isolated and without any of our favorite pastimes of cruising, fine dining, socializing (did I mention cruising?) for over 2 years. Like many cruisers, we were hesitant to cruise again with so many concerns and changes to our past 11 cruises. We found this cruise (second leg of RTW) booked and paid in full two weeks in advance-Gulp! Oceania is our favorite line and Regatta ...

REVIEW OF "GATEWAY TO SUNSHINE” CRUISE" We just returned from the Oceania “Gateway to Sunshine” sixteen-day cruise that started in Miami on December 21st, 2021. It would be a vast understatement to say our experience with this cruise was disappointing. We booked this cruise in late August primarily because of the impressive number of destinations it offered: Miami; Georgetown, Grand ...

This was the maiden voyage for this crew following the long Covid-induced hiatus and it was clear to us that this ship and crew was not ready. BIg things and small were problematic. We can start with our return flights which were changed without consultation or notification. I discovered the change when I reviewed the embarkation package. Then Oceania insisted that it was a schedule change ...
