Oceania Cruises has unveiled details of its world cruise for 2019, a 180-day voyage covering over 45,000 nautical miles onboard the elegant and intimate Insignia.

 

The Route

Embarking the full world cruise either in New York (departing 11 January 2019), Miami (departing 14 January 2019) or Los Angeles (departing 30 January 2019), guests will sail on an expertly-crafted route visiting 90 fascinating destinations in 36 countries while crossing 2 oceans and 16 seas. The Caribbean leg of the trip visits ports in Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Nicaragua and a daytime transit of the Panama Canal, with the highlight undoubtedly being a call to Havana, Cuba.

 

Following the sun west towards the Hawaiian islands and the South Pacific, Insignia will call at various ports in New Zealand and Australia before turning north to Asia. Here, she will stop at the continent’s dynamic cities including Bangkok, Hong Kong, Incheon, Shanghai, Singapore and Tokyo, as well as explore rustic resort destination such as Bali, Koh Samui, Penang, Phuket and Yangon.

 

The wonders of India and the Middle East follow after crossing the Bay of Bengal and Laccadive Sea. Kochi, Mangalore, Goa and Mumbai showcase the history and culture of Indian civilisation, with guests retracing the route of ancient maritime traders to Dubai, Fujairah and Salalah enroute to the Holy Land ports of Aqaba, Safaga and Haifa via the Suez Canal. The familiar waters of the Mediterranean follow, with Insignia visiting popular stops in Greece and the French and Italian rivieras, rounding the Iberian peninsula to France and the UK.

 

Southampton and Liverpool precede the Irish ports of Belfast, Dublin and Cork, where the ship and her guests pay tribute to their maritime heritage and the ocean liners of yesteryear that once plied the Atlantic Ocean. Insignia makes her own crossing to Canada and New York on the final leg of her journey back to Miami, with an overnight call to St. George, Bermuda enroute.
