Welcome to Oceania Cruises, Since our first voyage set sail in 2003, Oceania Cruises has been committed to destination-rich itineraries featuring the world’s most fascinating ports of call. We never stop dreaming of exciting new voyages, and in July of this year, we unveiled our first-ever cruise around the world, a 180-day journey onboard Insignia departing in January 2015. The overwhelming response to this epic voyage was further proof that our guests are not tourists, but travellers, and their desire to experience the world’s wonders never wanes. Thus, we are thrilled to announce that in July of 2015, Insignia will set sail from Miami on a new grand adventure, the 180-Day World Odyssey. At the height of summer, Insignia will sail north to Canada and New England and then to beautiful Greenland and Iceland. Insignia will visit some of the most alluring ports in the Mediterranean, linger overnight in magnificent cities such as Mumbai, Singapore and Hong Kong, and explore Africa from Kenya to Cape Town to the Ivory Coast. This remarkable journey concludes with a holiday season of island hopping in the azure waters of the Caribbean. We invite you to come aboard the elegant Insignia for this unforgettable voyage and experience the very best your world has to offer with Oceania Cruises. Sincerely,

Frank Del Rio Chairman and CEO

There is no better way to explore your world than on board an Oceania Cruises ship, where you feel instantly welcomed by the casually elegant atmosphere, inviting spaces and dedicated staff. As you travel from one marvellous destination to the next, you will dine on the finest cuisine at sea in any of our four openseating gourmet restaurants. Retire each evening to your richly appointed suite or stateroom and enjoy a host of complimentary amenities. Serene days at sea are filled with enriching entertainment, whether you prefer to lounge in the plush surroundings of the library, attend an enlightening culinary demonstration or sip a cocktail poolside. The Canyon Ranch SpaClubŽ offers not only signature massages but also healing therapies, fitness training and other revitalizing treatments to renew your mind, body and soul. Of course, one of the greatest joys of sailing is the spectacular view from Insignia’s decks as you cruise scenic vistas like the grand fjords of Greenland, the astounding limestone islands of Ha Long Bay, and the Cape of Good Hope.

PLEASURES OF THE PALATE

CU IS INE Sailing around the globe 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 PĂŠpin, who is Executive Culinary Director for Oceania Cruises, the talented chefs aboard Insignia create culinary masterpieces. From Continental classics in the Grand Dining Room to authentic Italian cuisine in Toscana to perfectly prepared steaks and seafood in Polo Grill, the options are nearly endless. Of course, a voyage of this scale must take full advantage of the opportunity to explore world cuisines, so special events will highlight fabulous local fare. Perhaps the buffet in Terrace CafĂŠ features delicious Thai specialities while cruising the Gulf of Thailand, or a deck party takes on a tropical flair as you sail the Caribbean Sea. Regardless of the region, an

array of culinary delights awaits you.

E N T ER T A I N ME N T While the magnificent worldwide destinations are certainly the star attraction on this world odyssey, you will enjoy an abundance of entertaining activities on board the ship as well, many designed to further enhance your experiences ashore. A bevy of expert lecturers will share personal insights on the history, arts, culture and cuisine of the fascinating ports of call you will visit, so you can experience each to its fullest. Other special guests will be on board to help celebrate the pure joys of cruising. Enjoy a bridge tournament conducted by a master of the game, listen to a talented pianist interpret a classic concerto or learn the secrets of regional cuisine from a local chef. On days when you wish to simply relax, the luxurious Canyon Ranch SpaClub速, the plush English-style library or a Balinese day bed poolside offers the perfect retreat in which to savour every moment of this

OD Y S S E Y O F W O N DER S Catering to guests that yearn to explore the far reaches of this vast and wonderful world, Oceania Cruises has designed an epic voyage that can only be described as an odyssey of wonders. Nothing short of remarkable, this cruise makes its way from the northern shores of New England and Canada to the remote beauty of Greenland and Iceland, continuing through the Mediterranean, along the coastline of Asia and Africa, and to the idyllic islands of the Caribbean. From the magnificent botanical gardens of Montreal and the healing waters of the Blue Lagoon spa near Reykjavik to the modern architecture of Barcelona and the ancient ruins of Rome, Insignia will be your luxurious home away from home for 180 extraordinary days. Tour the ancient temples of Burma, seek out big game on a safari in South Africa, and take in the perfect sunset while sailing the Caribbean, amassing a treasure trove of
