Ship: Oceania Insignia
Date: 4 March 2019

4 March 2019 marked the arrival of Oceania Insignia (684-passenger cruise ship) to White Bay, Sydney, as part of her World Cruise and the very first showcase of ‘OceaniaNEXT‘ in our local waters.

Insignia is the first ship of the line’s R-Class vessels to undergo a $100 million ‘better-than-new’ refurbishment.  All 4 x Regatta Class ships will undergo complete upgrades by June 2020.

There will be 11 more ships in the fleet between now and 2027, across all 3 x brands (NCL, Oceania Cruises and Regent Seven Seas)

Australia is a strong and fast growing market, the 2nd largest source market after North America!


The new colour palettes are modern and reflect the brand’s intimate and luxurious positioning

1. Renowned for having the “finest cuisine at sea”, you’ll be spoilt for choice at the specialty restaurants and the spectacular Grand Dining Room

2. Don’t miss the 19th century-inspired afternoon tea whilst listening to the ship’s own string quartet

3. Book into the beautiful Owner’s suites, which are furnished exclusively by luxe label Ralph Lauren Home

4. While away some time at sea and relax in the cosy Library with its decorative fresco

5. Enjoy new dining experiences, such as a Champagne tasting dinner in partnership with Dom Perignon
