Elevating the cruise itinerary planning process is a new series of coffee table book-like brochures from Oceania Cruises. The sailing collections are broken up into four individual volumes: The Best of Europe 2017, North America 2017-18, The Exotics 2017-18 and The Tropics 2017-18. In fact, the upscale line today just announced over 20 cruises leaving from New York City alone.
Oceania, which also recently received the award for Best Main Dining Room Cuisine in Porthole Cruise magazine’s Readers’ Choice Awards 2016, is appropriately focusing on its epicurean foodie lifestyle onboard and ashore. That’s why the line has also released its companion Savor the World brochure, featuring not only the brand’s fine dining but also its plush accommodations and attentive service.
“With so much beauty and artistic inspiration throughout the world, we wanted to produce a series of brochures that captured not only the beauty and breadth of experiences, but would spark the imagination and ignite conversations,” stated Bob Binder, President & CEO of Oceania Cruises.

Meanwhile, the destination brochures showcase striking cover imagery, from The Hermitage in St. Petersburg and a Tlingit Totem Pole in North America to the landscapes in Asia, Africa and the South Pacific and a Nautilus shell in the Caribbean, Mexico and South America. The brochures – which can be ordered online at OceaniaCruises.com or by calling 855-OCEANIA – will help travel agents and consumers alike to more easily picture themselves on an Oceania voyage locally or abroad.
Closer to home, the Insignia will depart on nearly two dozen roundtrip and open-jaw sailings from New York City’s Manhattan cruise terminal beginning in 2017, making it the only upscale line to homeport there. The ship will first head to the Big Apple from Reykjavik, Iceland on a 15-day crossing on July 26, 2017.
“Insignia offers an acclaimed culinary experience that rivals the best restaurants ashore as well as an irresistible blend of culturally rich and fascinating destinations. Combined with her elegance, sophistication and luxurious Canyon Ranch Spa Club, Oceania Cruises’ Insignia is the perfect match for New York and New York is the perfect match for Oceania Cruises,” stated Binder.
