LA to NYC
The cruise, which opened for booking today, will sail from Los Angeles to New York, visiting destinations in the South Pacific, New Zealand, Australia, Asia, Africa and northern Europe.
‘Guests will experience a truly unique combination of destinations that includes the South Pacific, Asia, India and even the British Isles,’ Oceania President & CEO Bob Binder said. ‘I think guests will be most delighted by the 12-day, nine-port immersion into Japan as well as the lesser-known cultural jewels of western Africa.’
Charting a westward route, Insignia will cross the Pacific to the Hawaiian Islands, the French Polynesia and Fijian enclaves. The course continues south toward the coasts and fjords of New Zealand followed by an extensive exploration Down Under, giving ample time for travelers to discover the reefs, capital cities and Aboriginal culture of Australia.
Insignia then explores Asia, with opportunities to delve into Bali, Kyoto, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Yangon. More adventures await at African game reserves, the acclaimed vineyards dotting the Cape Winelands, the volcanic landscapes of the Canary Islands and the canals of Amsterdam.
