Hard to find any negatives

This year, we dumped Viking, after a decade, because of the recent cutbacks to their on-board experience. We were delighted to find none of those annoyances on Insignia. The food is outstanding. We enjoyed ...

Wonderful adventurous cruise

The itinerary was spectacular from hot Buenos Aires to chilly Falkland Islands, around the Horn into icy Patagonia, then back into warmer climate into Peru. So, we did not use outdoor spaces much for about half the ...

Our first cruises were on Riviera and Marina, both commencing in Barcelona. We chose this cruise to see Rio and escape the cold Canadian winter. Wasn't Sure whether the smaller Sirena would be as nice as Riviera ...

Panama Canal and the Amazon - WOW!

We chose this cruise rather last minute when we had to abandon plans for a land tour due to a number of reasons. We are so glad we did. This cruise embarked 60 miles from our home making it easy to get to with no ...

Nice Cruise with Terrible Air Arrangements

We choose this cruise because of the itinerary and we wanted to experience a smaller ship. We are glad we did the cruise, however, smaller ships are “not our cup of tea.” We did not think there was much to do ...

Crossing the Andes from Valparaiso to Santiago was the trip of a lifetime.

We chose this cruise as we had been all over the word apart from South America. What better way to experience this continent but on the Oceania Marina. Unfortunately we arrived in to Buenos Aires to be greeted by ...

Lots of good things....not perfect

I chose this cruise for the itinerary and the rave reviews about the food, plus the total O Choices package made it irresistible. The food experience was uneven. Sometimes the food was very good and sometimes it ...
