Oceania Cruises Cruises and the Insignia Review.

Oceania Cruises is a premium cruise line, offering passengers an upscale experience on par with Axamara Cruises. The Insignia is a small, luxurious ship which originally started her career as the R1 of Renaissance Cruises. The ship has been continually upgraded is pristine condition providing passengers a high end experience.

Oceania Cruises Insignia Recent Refit - Color Pallette, High End Furnishings and Fine Touches.

In a dramatic re-inspiration process, Insignia is now a completely transformed ship without peer. Every surface of every suite and stateroom is entirely new. The public spaces are tastefully refreshed with a soft sea and sky color palette of fabrics, designer furnishings and custom light fixtures that exquisitely showcase the inimitable style and comfort of Oceania Cruises. From the bejeweled new chandeliers in the gracious Grand Dining Room to the beckoning Reception Hall, Insignia invites you to celebrate a rejuvenation so sweeping, you will find it positively unimaginable to resist her welcoming embrace.

Oceania Cruises Insignia Public Rooms, Lounges, Bars, Restaurants And Staterooms.

Sleek and elegantly charming, Insignia’s decks are resplendent in the finest teak, custom stone and tile work, and her lounges, suites and staterooms boast luxurious, neo-classical furnishings. Insignia offers every luxury you may expect on board one of our stylish ships. She features four unique, open-seating restaurants, the Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center, eight lounges and bars, a casino and 342 lavish suites and luxurious staterooms, nearly 70% of which feature private verandas. With just 684 guests to pamper, our 400 professionally trained European staff ensure you will wait for nothing.

Small details and designer choices are giving way to an even more luxurious ambiance and elevated cruise experience on board our Regatta-Class ships. Get a closer look at the enhancements to the Insignia.

  • A sparkling new Grand Staircase: The Reception Hall and Upper Hall set the re-inspired tone with a new Grand Staircase framed by intricate railings and balustrades inset with crystal accents while overhead, a luminous and grand chandelier sets the space aglow.
  • Designer residential furnishings and fabrics in public spaces: Furnishings from Baker and Donghia, along with fabrics from Rubelli and Kravet, dramatically enhance the public rooms and be set upon custom-milled carpets and illuminated by glowing crystal chandeliers above.
  • An even grander Grand Dining Room: Bejeweled new chandeliers adorn The Grand Dining Room along with buttery soft cream leather dining chairs accented with metallic bronze threading.
  • A new personality and palette for Martinis: Our beloved bar feature a fresh new palette of deep Grecian blue, sienna and chocolate browns and stately pewter, while silver-white marble and tobacco quartz will accent the bar. The trademark walnut paneling adds luster and whispers of familiarity.
  • A light, brighter & more spacious Horizons: This favorite space for quiet mornings, Afternoon Tea, and evening entertainment and drinks now is even more alluring as the room is opened up to offer beautiful unobstructed 270-degree views.
  • Sleekly redefined staterooms: Each and every stateroom features custom-crafted furnishings, exotic stone and polished wood finishes. Supple upholstered headboards, designer draperies and chic lighting plus all new storage spaces – new closets, dressers and vanities – make the staterooms even more spacious and attractive than before.
  • Deluxe Concierge Level upgrades: Ultra Tranquility Beds and re-inspired verandas with stylish new furniture elevates Concierge Level Veranda Staterooms even further.
  • Floor-to-ceiling bathroom transformations: Every fixture and surface is new with beautiful vanities, sleek glass enclosures and perfect lighting in each and every suite and stateroom bathroom.
  • Luxury finishes in Suite bathrooms: Fine Carrara marble, polished granite and sleek onyx bejewel the spacious bathrooms in Penthouse, Vista & Owner’s Suites.
  • Lavish new suites: Owner’s, Vista and Penthouse Suites are adorned in designer fabrics and furnishings echoing the serene seas and expansive skies, becoming calming and tranquil oases of quietude and relaxation.

Oceania Cruises Insignia Cruising With Kids.

The Insignia cruise experience is geared toward adults. The Insignia does not have a children's program but certain cruises are more children friendly than others. Overall there are no facilities or activities geared toward children. There are no water slides, children's pools or other children oriented activities, no camp counselor, etc. If you are traveling with children, I would choose another cruise line or I recommend to check with your travel agent and/or Oceania Cruises to see if a particular sailing is children friendly and the types of activities available.
