    Oceania Insignia

    We have cruised on Summit each of the last three years. We choose Aqua class. We have cruised on Insignia twice and will be sailing on her again in August this year on a Bermuda/Canada cruise out of NY. We are in a PH3 as on previous cruises. We enjoy Celebrity but Oceania is our favorite cruise line. Overall the food and ambience on Insignia is significantly better than Summit particularly comparing the Main Dining rooms and the Buffets. Specialty restaurants are normally very good on both lines however Celebrity charge an upfront fee (quite significant IMO), on Oceania no upfront extra fees. We find 'life' is more relaxed on Oceania Hope you enjoy your cruise whichever you choose.

    Riviera March 6 to March 16, Mini Review

    Thank you for your review. I enjoyed reading it. We have had the same experience with the 50/60% full specialty restaurants. The one hour spread between dining times dictates the occupancy.

    Experienced Cruiser tries Oceania for the first time

    Thank you for posting an interesting and comprehensive review. 'O' is a good fit for us for one of the reasons you identified.....I do not drink alcohol and my DW only a small amount. My drink before dinner is a virgin mary and not surprisingly is easily remembered in the restaurants and bars....lol
