Cabin: Veranda Stateroom

This was our first Oceania cruise, but we have been on over 100 cruises with various other lines. We choose Oceania not only for the itinerary, but for the reputation for excellent food and service...we were not disappointed. The Insignia just returned to the Oceania fleet after a long term lease from Hapag-Lloyd - we learned this from several German passengers onboard who advised that is how they selected the ship. The ship is very nicely appointed and very easy to navigate as it's very small compared to other ships we've been on. My husband and I are both in our 40's and we were the youngest people onboard by about 25-30 years. Our fellow cruisers were all very well traveled and quite interesting as well as entertaining.

The food and service were top notch and probably the best I've had land or sea. Everything is very well organized and there was never a line anywhere. I guess that is part of the luxury of selecting a smaller ship. Our only disappointment was in the cabins...they are small and fairly cramped. The balcony only allows for two chairs and a table whereas we've had balconies on other ships with chaise lounges as well as a table and chairs.

Overall this was a great cruise, excellent food and service and a cruise line that I would highly recommend and look forward to sailing on again in the near future.

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom

Cabin B1

The cabin was a great location not too far from the elevators on the starboard side of the ship. For this particular itinerary I wish we would have selected the port side of the ship as there was more to see in and out of the various ports.
