Ship
Insignia
Overview

Our acclaimed Insignia has undergone a multimillion-dollar transformation to create a virtually new ship that is both sleek and elegantly charming. Her decks are resplendent in the finest teak, custom stone and tile work, and her lounges, suites and staterooms boast luxurious, neo-classical furnishings. Insignia offers every luxury you may expect on board one of our stylish ships. She features four unique, open-seating restaurants, a world-class fitness center and spa, eight lounges and bars, a casino and 342 lavish suites and luxurious staterooms, nearly 70% of which feature private verandas. With just 684 guests to pamper, our 400 professionally trained European staff ensure you will wait for nothing.

Cuisine

The Grand Dining Room
The Grand Dining Room is a study in stateliness, a tribute to the spirit of Europe's marquee 5-star hotel restaurants that inspired its dignified yet convivial ambiance. Handsomely decorated in rich woods, designer tapestry fabrics and oversized armchairs, the expansive dining area exudes classic splendor. Tables are beautifully set with bone china, sparkling Riedel crystal, gleaming silver, and fine cotton linens. Remarkably, as sumptuous as The Grand Dining Room's decor is, guests always feel completely at ease within its grandeur. Much of that is a direct reflection of the formally attired and classically trained wait staff, graciously serving course after course of European-inspired cuisine or delectable alternatives such as light and healthy Canyon Ranch Spa Cuisine and gourmet vegan options. And on board Regatta, Insignia, Nautica and Sirena signature specials from Jacques and Red Ginger are featured nightly in The Grand Dining Room. As variety is essential, menus change daily with a brilliant choice of at least ten appetizers, soups and salads and twelve entrees at dinner.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. No reservations required.

The Bistro
Inspired by the family recipes of our Executive Culinary Director, Jacques Pepin, The Bistro invites you to enjoy quintessential French dishes as well as lunchtime favorites and regional specialties during lunch in The Grand Dining Room. The menu features some of Jacques' favorite bistro-style dishes like the crisp salade nicoise and a warm croque-monsieur as well as a rich range of global flavors with Taste of the World selections from Cuba, Mexico, Scandinavia, Italy, Thailand, Morocco and beyond. Daily specials offer even more choices and opportunities to savor a new and different dish or a time-honored classic you crave. Bon appetit!

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. No reservations required.

Polo Grill
Polo Grill embodies all the elements of a classic steakhouse, expressing them with timeless reverence. Mindful of tradition, the decor features crisp, white linen tablecloths, dark wood furnishings and supple, high-back, burgundy leather chairs. Each course stands as the very definition of time-honored favorites, most notably the beef dishes, all of which are USDA Prime and dry-aged for 28 days to enhance tenderness and flavor. Succulent seafood dishes such as Grilled Swordfish and Whole Maine Lobster Gratinee are also classics in their own right. The Classic Caesar Salad, too, is prepared according to tradition, tableside and with gusto.

Open for dinner only. Reservations required.

Toscana
In Italian, Toscana means Tuscan, and just as Tuscan cuisine evolved from rich family traditions, many of our recipes originated with the mothers and grandmothers of our own Italian culinary staff. Presented on elegant, custom-designed Versace china, masterfully prepared dishes exemplify the essence of Tuscany and celebrate Italy's culinary passion. Perhaps the evening begins with an appetizer of Octopus Carpaccio with Champagne Vinaigrette or the Artichoke and Parmesan Cheese Timbale with Black Truffle Sauce. Classic dishes from other regions of Northern Italy are featured as well, such as the Minestrone alla Genovese, Lasagne al Forno alla Bolognese and Osso Buco alla Milanese.

Open for dinner only. Reservations required.

Terrace Cafe
Informal and carefree, the Terrace Cafe is wonderfully inviting any time of day--feel free to dine inside or alfresco at one of the shaded teak tables on the terrace. First thing in the morning, enjoy sumptuous breakfast selections. Come lunch, the expansive menu of international-inspired dishes changes entirely, beautifully complemented by flavorful roasted and rotisserie meats and the magic of the pizzeria's oven. Feel free to dine inside or alfresco at one of the shaded teak tables on the terrace. Evenings, the impeccably clad wait staff shines, and the cuisine takes on a more sophisticated flair. Lobster tails and lamb chops are prepared to order, and freshly made hand-cut sushi and sashimi await your selection. Tomorrow, an entirely different series of menus awaits the opportunity to delight you.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. No reservations required.

Waves Grill
Sometimes, the ultimate luxury is casual dining on all-American favorites, a style laid-back Waves Grill epitomizes. Located in a spacious, shaded area steps from the swimming pool, Waves Grill offers an extensive and mouthwatering luncheon menu as well as raw, cold-pressed juices, vegan smoothies and healthy energy bowls during breakfast at the new Raw Juice & Smoothie Bar. During lunch, the chefs grill gourmet burgers, tangy barbecue and succulent seafood to order in the open galley, accompanying them with side dishes like garden-fresh salads and crispy, hand-cut truffle fries dusted with grated aged parmesan.

Open for lunch and afternoon dining only. No reservations required.

Afternoon Tea
A ritual that dates back to 19th century England, afternoon tea is still a cherished tradition the world over. But few tea times are as anticipated and inspired as ours, a celebratory daily event that irresistibly draws guests to Horizons at four o'clock sharp. As a classical string quartet plays softly in the background, our staff glides through the room presenting bountiful four-tiered pastry carts filled with freshly made finger sandwiches, colorful petits fours, richly textured scones with clotted cream, and wonderfully sinful desserts.
