Around the World in 2020: A Voyage Like No Other
There have been global circumnavigations before, but nothing quite like the one designed by Oceania Cruises setting sail from Miami on January 8, 2020 aboard Insignia. On this voyage of a lifetime, you’ll transit the newly-expanded Panama Canal, round Cape Horn and, for the first time on an Oceania Cruises world voyage, explore Alaska and the Aleutian Islands. You’ll circle South America from the cloud-kissed ruins of Machu Picchu to the samba beat of Rio de Janeiro, encounter Africa’s magnificent wildlife, and explore the pagodas and teahouses of Japan. And you’ll do it all as you enjoy the gracious service, The Finest Cuisine at Sea and the luxurious atmosphere of elegant Insignia, your home for 180 glorious days.
The World Less Traveled
A globe-roaming voyage is the grandest of prized travel experiences, and for the very first time Oceania Cruises has woven together Alaska, Mexico, South America, Asia, and Africa into a magnificent worldwide tapestry that crosses the equator a remarkable four times. Watch whales cavort in Alaska’s glacial bays, among Cabo San Lucas’ rock formations and in the quiet majesty of the Chilean Fjords. Feast with gauchos in Patagonia, stroll the haunting streets of Beijing’s Forbidden City, and soar above Peru’s ancient Nazca Lines. Sail along Alaska’s exquisite Inside Passage, around the tips of both Africa and South America, and through the limestone karsts of Vietnam’s Ha Long Bay. Search for rhinos, hippos and giraffes in game reserves in Africa, and with nine ports of call in Japan, discover the enduring legacy of the samurai. From the serpentine Great Wall of China to the dazzling Volcanoes of Kamchatka, an extraordinary 67 UNESCO World Heritage sites illuminate your route.
The Finest Cuisine at Sea™
Sailing around the globe also offers the chance to sample some of the finest cuisine in the world at the very best shoreside restaurants. Sailing around the globe with Oceania Cruises means you will enjoy equally exquisite cuisine on board the ship. Inspired by the legendary Master Chef Jacques Pépin, the line’s Executive Culinary Director, the talented chefs on board Insignia create culinary masterpieces. From Continental classics, gourmet vegan dishes and globally-inspired plates at The Grand Dining Room to authentic Italian cuisine at Toscana to perfectly prepared steaks and seafood at Polo Grill, the options are nearly endless. Of course, a voyage of this scale must take full advantage of the opportunity to celebrate world cuisines, so an array of special events will highlight authentic local fare. Enjoy delicious Japanese delicacies and fresh sushi at Terrace Café while charting the Sea of Japan or join a colorful Carnaval-style deck party as you sail along Brazil, Land of the Palms. Regardless of the region, a plethora of specially curated culinary experiences awaits you.
