Oceania Completes Insignia Refurbishment

Oceania Cruises' Insignia has recently emerged from a 10-day multimillion-dollar refurbishment. Several thousand meters of new, custom-milled woolen carpets were laid throughout the public areas and accommodations. All staterooms and suites received the line's new third generation Tranquility Beds with new mattresses. Deck 11 is now home to a top-of-ship oasis with eight luxury cabanas and teak decking. New communication equipment was installed to facilitate greater Internet speed and the use of cell phones at sea. Invisible to guests, many behind-the-scenes systems were upgraded and enhanced; the ship has new fresh-water plumbing, new fresh-water evaporators with increased capacity, refaced tiled surfaces and upgraded galleys. The most dramatic enhancement of all is the addition of a new bar with a handcrafted granite top and a bar front composed of crackled, backlit Murano glass. Insignia is also the first of the line's ships to receive a museum quality nautical art collection with antique paintings and ship models that have been acquired from private collections.
