  1. That would be great. I believe that Insignia has just come out of a major refit and has new equipment and redesigned staterooms with the flatscreen TVs flat against the wall. In any case I can only give you the situation that existed this past month in my stateroom on Insignia as stated above. You were wise to consult Oceania, as they are in the middle of a renovation of their fleet and it is possible/probable that there are significant differences of this nature between ships.

On the renovated Insignia, there are a limited number of USA and European outlets - they all have a third hole for plugs with a "ground". They also include USB slots. These outlets are insufficient if you have your own lap top, chargers for two telephones, and tablets, chargers for hearing aids, hair drier etc. I always bring an adapter to multiply my outlets. I use one that plugs into a single wall outlet. Adapter
