    The cruise departs Miami on 9 January, and this remarkable six-continent voyage culminates with one of cruising’s most iconic moments as Insignia sails past the Statue of Liberty into New York City on 9 July.

    “This is a landmark itinerary for Oceania Cruises. It is an itinerary designed to appeal to the Kipling in all of us,” says Bob Binder, president of Oceania Cruises.

    From iconic cities and faraway villages to soaring mountains and island paradises, guests can explore all of the world’s greatest treasures during this classic westbound circumnavigation including Uluru, Angkor Wat, the Taj Mahal, the Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal, and Luxor.

    During an evening in Istanbul’s ancient and ornate Binbirdirek Cistern, guests will step back in time to the era of the Ottoman sultans while enjoying a traditional bazaar, local delicacies including Turkish coffee and mesmerising entertainment.
    Just outside Livorno, on the Ligurian coast, lies the famed Alpemare Beach Resort, owned by Andrea Bocelli. At this fabulous resort, guests will enjoy a wine tasting and lunch, then retire to the family villa for a concert and performance by Andrea’s son, Matteo.
    In Dublin, a private performance by the Riverdance troupe will be held at the 18th-century Mansion House which is not only the official residence of the Lord Mayor of Dublin but has played host to countless luminaries including Pope John Paul II, Queen Victoria, Prince Rainier and Princess Grace of Monaco.
    In Hilo, guests will be feted at the Makahimi Games at the Umauma Falls Nature Centre where athletes will compete in spirited spear hurling competitions or an amusing match of strength and dexterity during a haka moa fight.
    In Brisbane, guests will delve into the mysteries of Australia’s Aboriginal culture, courtesy of the Spirits of the Red Sand experience, and feast on an elaborate traditional barbeque while being treated to a festive Aboriginal show.
