Got a few months to spare? Oceania Cruises is offering an additional 180-day journey aboard the newly refurbished Insignia that sails from Miami on January 4, 2016. In the wake of the success of the first two 180-day cruises, this newest voyage is the latest in a series that represents the longest and most comprehensive world exploration itineraries available in the cruise industry. Got the time, and money, bookings open on July 30, 2014. And if you reserve a suite or stateroom by Oct. 31, 2014, you can score 2 for 1 cruise fares, free First Class roundtrip airfare from major U.S. and Canadian gateways and early booking savings of up to 71%. And that’s not all, added perks of the Exclusive Prestige Package include:

  • Free pre-paid gratuities
  • Free onboard medical services (this is some bonus, let’s hope you don’t need it, but it’s costly when you do.
  • Free unlimited Internet (also big savings said by one who spends much time on the net)
  • Free laundry services (again this defrays costs big time)
  • Free exclusive shoreside events
  • Free visa package
  • Free luggage delivery for up to two bags 50 lbs. or less (now we’re talking)
  • Free one-night pre-cruise luxury hotel stay (not bad)

The Insignia’s world voyage starts with the Caribbean, continues to South America with stops at Trinidad and Tobago, French Guiana and Brazil. Then she heads to African ports in Angola, Namibia, South Africa and Mozambique. After African continent, Insignia sails to Asia offering two-night stays in Rangoon, Burma (Yangon, Myanmar), and Shanghai, China, as well as visits to a myriad of exotic and alluring locales. Next comes the tropical paradises of the South Pacific for a number of stops, including Oceania Cruises’ first call on the Australian port of Cooktown, serving as a gateway for the Great Barrier Reef and the Aboriginal community of Hopevale.
