MIAMI -- Oceania Cruises shifted the first two sailings of its
Insignia away from Istanbul and Kusadasi, Turkey.
The inaugural sailing of the Insignia on Oct. 4 will now be a
roundtrip from Barcelona, rather than a cruise between Barcelona
and Istanbul. The Oct. 18 cruise will now sail between Barcelona
Based on demand for Mediterranean sailings of Oceania's other
ship, the Regatta, "it made sense," a spokesman said. "Let's swing
the Insignia; keep her in the western Med."
