Sail Date: Nov 2019
Cabin: Penthouse Suite

Originally scheduled for Cuban ports, Insignia had to change its itinerary. We were offered a big discount to sail to the Western Caribbean. Cozumel, Roatan, Belize and Costa Maya were substituted. None of these ports was very interesting. Because of the change each port of call was mobbed with 3 or 4 mega ships already docked. In two ports we had to tender. We chose to stay onboard several times.

The ship has just refitted and looks beautiful. Our PH cabin was classified as “obstructed view”. A very small upper corner of our veranda was cut off. This was hardly noticeable and provided extra privacy since we abutted a suite and we had a solid wall separating our balconys. The cabin was quiet - almost no food traffic outside our door.

Dining in Toscana and Polo was outstanding. The Terrace cafe was excellent, providing grilled lobster tails, shrimp and lamb chops every night. The Grand Dining room is lovely but the menus are just not thrilling. Sometimes we were at a loss as to what to order. For breakfast we had our butler serve in our cabin. It was great. He did a beautiful presentation and the food selection was good.

Cabin Review

Penthouse Suite

We loved it! Would book again. Comparing it to other PH cabins this one had a little more privacy on the balcony. It was quiet. No noise from overhead or in the hall. The “obstructed view” was hardly noticeable - part of the solid wall separating it from the suite next door.
