The Perfect Ocean Sailing Vessel

We have cruise many times with Oceania and have never been disappointed. In fact, whenever we cruise with another line, we can't wait to get back to Oceania. The crew and staff on the Insignia make the trip a most ...

Between me and my wife we have been on 5 ships: this cruise (the Insignia), Anthem of the Seas, Empress of the Seas, QM2 (Britannia Class), and Crown Princess. We have been in inside rooms through verandas. This ...

Miami to Key West to Santiago de Cuba to Cienfuegos, to Havana to Miami

We previously sailed on the Insignia. We have never been to Cuba before and the cruise stopped at three ports in Cuba. The embarkation was a little slow for a smaller ship. The dining was very good in all the ...

Just an excellent relaxing cruise

I chose a Penthouse Suite because it is one of the few class cabins that has a tub in the bath. Expensive but it gives you a nice size cabin and extra service and amenities. The crew was the very best and the ...

Excellent Cruise

We chose this cruise because of the smaller ship experience and the claims about the food (gourmet). We have cruised back in the classic days of cruising (e.g. the 1970's on Homeline's Oceanic which was 5 star) as ...
