The destinations were magnificent. A great boat for very mature people.
The food was incredible, the best cruise food I have had.
The activities on board were not for me at all.
The entertainment was just OK, mostly singers.
The staff were so but so good, all of them, they are there to please you.
food and service usually very good; had some rough seas ( 4 foot waves) making the ride rough for 3 or 4 days; not sure if stabilizers were working properly or it was rough due to ship being " mid-sized" ( maybe a larger ship can handle the waves better ?)
ports not great; the 2 better ones ( Caymen Islands and Roatan ) did not allow enough time to enjoy ( we had to return by mid-afternoon )
The food is the most outstanding part of any Oceania cruise. And this one was no exception. However, the Insignia is not quite as good an experience as other Oceania ships of the same size, particularly the Regatta.

Book the specialty dining rooms in advance of boarding the ship or immediately when on board. You're not limited to the number of times you can dine in them but reservations fill up ultra fast. Transportation is NOT included to and from the airport/ship.
If you expect the best in all facets of cruising you should definitely book a cruise on the Insignia. Top notch all the way.
If you're an early riser, coffee is available in the Horizons Lounge. Don't miss afternoon tea in Horizons -- but get there early for the best seats! On days at sea, take breakfast in the dining room -- it's more relaxing than the buffet in the Terrace Cafe.
