Oceania Insignia


"When the christening champagne bottles break, so too will the mold of what a cruise line should be."

Our ship offers incomparable luxury, including cuisine that is simply the finest at sea. Our 400 staff members cater to your every whim, with highly personalized service. There's a sense of warmth and intimacy throughout, so the ambiance resembles that of a private country club - casual, yet elegant.

A World of Destination Expertise

In each and every destination we call upon, our goal is to provide you with the most rewarding, enriching destination experience possible. In many ports, you will stay overnight which allows for two days of exploration and provides you with the opportunity to immerse yourself in the history, culture, and cuisine. Our goal is for each and every guest to experience the destinations, not merely visit.

OnBoard Lifestyle

With so many entertainment and enrichment options, there is never a shortage of things to do on an Oceania Cruises vacation. If you prefer to plan the day, in advance you might take part in numerous scheduled activities, such as wine tasting of rare vintage wines or stimulating lectures. If you would rather create your own diversions, consider the ship your playground. No matter what you choose, you are sure to enjoy every moment you spend aboard our ships.

  • Oceania Insignia Special Lifestyle

    A caring staff tending to and anticipating your every wish is our singular focus. Our staff-to-guest ratio, more than one crew member for every stateroom, assures you the highest degree of personal service.

    With a maximum capacity of 684 guests, you will experience more time with your significant other rather than your significant other shipmates. But rest assured, our ships feature all the amenities you would expect to find in the larger ones.

    Sit back and let your mind wander as the world floats gently by in our world-class Oceania Spas, for instance, where such indulgences as pampering aromatherapy massages to exotic hot stone treatments are readily available.

    The Fitness Center offers state-of-the-art equipment and an aerobic area for the fit and healthy. Personal trainers are available to customize your very own private workout regimen.


    After a day of relaxing at our Oceania Spa by Mandara, you'll want to look as good as you feel. Our salon offer a full range of beauty services, from full hair color treatments and styling to luxurious manicures and pedicures.

    Fitness Track

    Overlooking our beautiful pool deck and the vast expanses of the open sea, our fitness track, with just 13 laps to the mile, is an ideal way to stay in and enjoy tantalizing sea breezes and beautiful vistas.

    Oceania Insignia Dining

    "A mere promise of the best food at sea impresses no one unless you have the means to fulfill it."

    Naturally, you expect inspired cuisine when you take a cruise. At Oceania Cruises you will find the very finest cuisine offered at sea. The highest culinary standards are insisted upon for each course created and served.

    World-renowned, master chef Jacques Pe'pin, our Executive Culinary Director, meticulously crafts our 5 Star menus. He is one of America's best known chefs, food columnists and cook book authors. He has also served as the personal chef to no less than three French heads of state including Charles de Gaulle.

    The onboard atmosphere is relaxed and reminiscent of the casual elegance of a country club. Tuxedos and gowns are never a requirement for dining so you can dress and enjoy the evening comfortably. The overall feeling is one that is never stuffy and void of any pretension.

    • Toscana (Italian)
    • Polo Grill (Black Angus Steakhouse)
