Starting from January 2018, Oceania Cruises, the cruise line dedicated to epicurean enthusiasts and which is known for serving “the finest cuisine at sea”, is offering a season of voyages dedicated to exploring the culinary highlights of the Asian region. Oceania Cruises’ acclaimed Nautica and Insignia
With Oceania Cruises, guests can expect elegant accommodations, exceptional personalised service, as well as expertly-crafted excursions that provide an immersive cultural, historic and, above all, culinary experience of the local destinations.
Recommended itineraries include the 15-day Eastern Escapade cruise aboard Nautica from Hong Kong to Bangkok. Guests will cruise through picturesque Ha Long Bay in Hanoi, before stopping at the beautiful coastal city Nha Trang and the historic Ho Chi Minh City. Singapore and its rich culinary culture is the next port of call, before the ship cruises through the Gulf of Thailand for a pit stop on the island of Koh Samui. It will finally end up in Bangkok.
The 15-day Pagodas and Shrines cruise aboard Nautica from Singapore to Hong Kong will go through the Gulf of Thailand, stopping at the island of Koh Samui and the Thai capital, Bangkok. Sihanoukville, with its pristine beaches on the Cambodian coast, is the next port of call before the ship cruises to the vibrant Vietnamese cities of Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi. Guests will then sail through the Hainan strait before the journey comes to an end in Hong Kong.
INTIMATE AND LUXURIOUS SHIPS
In 2014, both Nautica and Insignia underwent a multi-million-dollar refurbishment to create virtually new ships that are sleek and elegantly charming. The decks are resplendent with the finest teak, custom stone and tile work, and the lounges, suites and staterooms boast luxurious, neo-classical furnishing.
Both ships offer four open-seating restaurants, world-class fitness centres and spas, lounges and bars, a casino, 342 lavish suites and luxurious staterooms. And with just 684 guests onboard, the 400 professionally-trained staff ensures all guests receive utmost attention and care.

With legendary Master Chef Jacques Pepin as the line’s executive culinary director, each restaurant offers guests extraordinary dining experiences. All dining, be it breakfast, lunch or dinner, is inclusive and made a la minute. Gourmands can choose from authentic Italian dishes at Toscana, succulent seafood and USDA Prime steak at Polo Grill and continental cuisine in the Grand Dining Room. Casual alfresco dining is available all day at Terrace Cafe and made-to-order American fare is served alongside healthy options, including a newly -ntroduced Raw Juice & Smoothie Barat Waves Grill.
