Any Cruise, Anywhere, Any Time

Seas of Enlightenment

ms Insignia

A spectacular menagerie of diverse and exotic destinations – the Seas of Enlightenment – a world just waiting to be discovered, and it doesn’t get much better than onboard one of Oceania Cruises most classically elegant ships, ms Insignia

This uniquely luxurious 27-day journey encompasses some of the best Australasia has to offer – culinary delights, history, culture and remarkably diverse scenery. Heading north along the eastern seaboard, you’ll enjoy two days cruising the Coral Sea, one of the most diverse marine bioregions on the planet, before heading onto day trips in Cairns, Cooktown and Darwin.

One of the highlights during your visit to Indonesia is a day trip to the rugged Komodo Island, home to the over 4,000 three-meter long Komodo dragon monitor lizard, volcanos, forests and coral reefs. After a few days at sea, you’ll cruise on to the dreamy tropical island of Boracay in the Philippines, with picture-perfect stretches of white sandy beaches, clear blue waters and palm trees, and is definitely something to write-home-about.

Enjoy a few full days exploring Taiwan before cruising to Japan where you’ll spend four days in different ports, including a day in the mystical ancient capital of Kyoto, famous for traditional wooden houses, temples and shrines, imperial palaces and gardens. You’ll disembark in Tokyo feeling relaxed and culturally enriched.

Eat before you go...

Balinese Spicy Shredded Chicken
Ayam Pelalah – Serves 4

4 red chilis, seeded
♦ 2 shallots, peeled and coarsely chopped
♦ 3 cloves garlic, peeled
♦ 4 chicken breasts, room temperature
♦ 1 tablespoon coconut oil
♦ ¼ cup peanut oil
♦ 2 bay leaves
♦ 3 kaffir lime leaves
♦ 1 stalk lemongrass, in 2- to 3-inch long slices
♦ ¼ cup fresh ginger juice
♦ 2 limes, quartered

In a food processor, combine chiles, shallots and garlic. Grind to a smooth spice paste.

Pound chicken to an inch thick, then thinly slice along the diagonal (with the grain of the meat), into ¼-inch by 2-inch rectangles. Meat will look like uncooked, shredded chicken.  Toss in coconut oil and 2 tablespoons of spice paste and marinate 1 to 2 hours.

Heat peanut oil in a wok, then add the bay leaves, kaffir lime leaves and lemongrass, tossing until oil is fragrant and seasoned. Quickly remove the leaves and stalks and add the chicken, tossing in the wok continuously until chicken is cooked. Once cooked, toss in ginger juice.

Serve the chicken warm with a generous squeeze of two lime segments and with the remaining spice paste on the side.

Enjoy, or selamat makan as they say in Indonesia!
