Insignia is one of Oceania Cruises' slightly smaller cruise liners, with room for 684 passengers. And so retains a much cosier feel than some larger vessels, making the perfect choice for travellers who are looking for a bit of R&R.

This is something which is enhanced by the ship's casual and comfortable decor, with mahogany wood panelling and Oriental-style carpets creating something of a country club environment. The cabins, meanwhile, represent the pinnacle in luxury accommodation, with all rooms featuring Prestige Tranquility Beds, as well as down duvet and blankets made from Egyptian cotton. You certainly won't have any sleepless nights when you're onboard Insignia.

What's more, roughly two-thirds of cabins come with their own balcony, so you'll be able to enjoy stunning sea views. If you're looking for something more extravagant, however, then you may want to check into a penthouse suite, which features a separate living room, wrap-around balcony and 42-inch plasma TV.

It's also worth noting that, while facilities like the games room are sure to keep passengers of all ages entertained, there are no specific activities for children, so whilst some other ships may offer things like kids clubs, Insignia is perhaps more suitable for adults. It's therefore perfect for passengers who are after some rest and relaxation.

After a multi-million dollar upgrade in 2014, Insignia emerged with many new and refreshed spaces and amenities onboard. Enhancements were made to the dining and recreation experience in addition to suites and main lounges. Owner and Vista Suites both shine with new wall-to-wall marble bathrooms and Penthouse Suites receieved all new furnishings. 

Oceania Insignia offers a range of exciting eateries, each serving up something a little different, so you can be sure that all tastes are well catered for onboard:

  • The Grand Dining Room- this is the ship's main dining room where you'll find European-inspired dishes served on bone china by world-class waiters.
  • The Bistro- classic French cuisine alongside global dishes from the likes of Mexico, Italy, Morocco and more.
  • Toscana- authentic Italian specialities made from family recipes to give a true taste of the country.
  • Waves Grill- a casual eatery serving all-American favourites on the pool deck, from gourmet burgers to delicious Poke Bowls
  • Polo Grill- offering mouthwatering meals in classic steakhouse style.
  • Terrace Café- enjoy decadent breakfasts, international-inspired cuisine at lunchtime and sophisticated meat and fish come evening.

The main show lounge is located on Deck Five, and can accommodate around half of the ship's guests for each performance. The programme of events held here is extensive, with everything from live music, comedy, cabaret and theatre to ensure that no one gets bored during their time on Insignia.

Elsewhere, the onboard spa is run by the renowned american firm, Aquamar Spa + Vitality Center, and features a thalassotherapy whirlpool whilst also offering a range of relaxing and rejuvenating treatments. Other highlights include the onboard casino and library, while yoga and Pilates classes are available in the fitness centre.

The ship's sports deck features a miniature golf course, shuffleboard courts and other deck games.
