My wife and I love to cruise. This past cruise was our 15th and it was totally enjoyable.  The Insignia isn't the newest or the largest but it is filled with great crew members who are always available to assist you in any way possible.  Our eleven night cruise from London to Barcelona was out of this world.  This was our first cruise on the Insignia but we are hoping it will not be our last.  Our cruise expert went over the top for us, everything he told us about was 100% correct.  We are so very pleased he helped us with our choice.  Thanks Rickie, you are the best!

Cabin / Stateroom
Very clean and updated. It was just wonderful and just what we expected from an outstanding organization ( Oceania ).
Embarkation and Disembarkation
Perfect. We were staying in Barcelona for four extra days and we were off the ship at 8:45 leaving for the hotel. Perfect disembarkation for our group ( seven of us )
Ship Quality
Loved the size of the ship and it was very, very clean.
Destinations and Excursions
Due to the size of the ship, we were able to get into ports that the larger ships cannot.
Onboard Activities
Just what we wanted. We did want we wanted to do and at our pace.
Sorry but we were very busy with friends to attend.
Service and Staff
Above and beyond each day of the cruise
Food and Dining
Outstanding - everyday and evening
Southampton (London), England
Allow enough time for the drive from London to Southampton. It truly is 90 minutes in traffic.
Saint-Jean-De-Luz, France
Would return there is an instant.
Gijon, Spain
A sure spot for us to revisit. We again went outside the city to the countryside and loved every mile.
La Coruna, Spain
Lisbon, Portugal
We took a trip out of the city and the countryside is wonderful, a must see
Cadiz (Seville), Spain
Our favorite - Our friends even said, "we could live here". That is how much we loved it
Barcelona, Spain
The very best for last. Barcelona is one of our very favorite cities. This was the sixth time we have stayed there and we will again. Warm, loving city, friendly easy to walk and very easy to find anything and everything you want to do. If we hadn't taken the cruise, we would have stayed in Barcelona for the entire trip.
