  3. Insignia
This was the first cruise of the Insignia after being overhauled and brought back into the Oceania fleet. There were a few hicups but nothing major. Our room was beautiful and you could tell that the carpet was brand new. We did need to call house keeping to vacuum out the closet as there was still carpet reminents in there left over from the installation. We also had a light fixture in the bathroom and over our bed that flickered but they did come and fix right away. You could still tell that ship was old despite the overhaul however, the food on board and the service was really very good. The ports of call on this journey were also very good. It started in Barcelona Spain, went to Palma De Mallorca,Antibes France, Marseille France, Monte Carlo, Portafino Italy,Rome. We loved all of the ports of call except for Marseille which we found to be dirty and full of people trying to pick your pocket. Overall I would recommend Oceania Cruises if you are looking for a more laid back, adult experience (there were no kids at all on this cruise). We are both in our 50's and were amongst the youger crowd agewise. We still met some really great and fun people and had a great experience.

Cabin Review

Penthouse Suite
Cabin PH2 850
The cabin had plenty of room and storage space for the two of us. The balcony was a little small but totally adequate for our needs. I chose a cabin on the side of the ship that would face land so we could see the ports rather than look out into the sea.
