With the unveiling of this global odyssey, the line is offering guests the flexibility of embarking the full world cruise in New York, Miami or Los Angeles.

“Our exciting 2019 Around the World journey offers guests an expertly crafted route spanning the four corners of the globe, touching on nearly 100 captivating destinations and dozens of UNESCO World Heritage sites. It is truly the journey of a lifetime,” said Bob Binder, President & CEO of Oceania Cruises.

“The added convenience of three departures, new for 2019, brings guests greater flexibility and can help simplify their travel plans.”

Aboard the 684-guest Insignia, the Around the World voyage will sail more than 45,000 nautical miles across two oceans and 16 seas while visiting 90 fascinating destinations in 36 countries.

Departing New York on 11 January 2019, Miami on 14 January, or Los Angeles on 30 January 2019, this epic five-continent expedition invites seasoned travellers to explore the far corners of the world in luxury and style.

The epic route follows the sun west to the beautiful islands of Hawaii and the deep blue South Pacific before heading Down Under for adventures across New Zealand and Australia. Insignia then explores the vast marvels of Asia, the Holy Land and classics throughout the Mediterranean before crossing the high seas to New England, Canada and Bermuda.
The itinerary also features 14 overnight stays including:

  • Bali (Benoa), Indonesia – In this veritable paradise, guests can experience soaring volcanoes and ancient Hindu temples during adventures into the lush countryside, along with traditional Balinese dance
  • Hong Kong, China – A unique juxtaposition of the ancient and modern, this buzzing mecca reveals its personality in its lively markets, soaring skyscrapers, a floating village and renowned monasteries
  • Yangon, Myanmar – A faraway city of golden temples, Yangon teems with shrines, colonial-era buildings and open-air markets; the pinnacle is the enormous gilded 2,500-year-old Shwedagon Pagoda
  • Luxor (Safaga), Egypt – Often referred to as the world’s greatest open-air museum, Luxor brings guests to the foot of ancient monuments such as the majestic Karnak and Luxor temples, the famed Valley of the Kings with the tomb of Tutankhamun, the Colossi of Memnon and more
