The cruise went to specific countries we wanted to visit. The trivia team games were fun! The lecturer from UCLA, Dr. Teofilo Ruiz, was superb and the best historian I have ever heard on a cruise and I have been on 30 cruises. The ... Read more

We were very disappointed in the Concierge veranda room on the Nautica. After a prior cruise on the Marina, we expected a quality experience. It was a very small room, little closet space, a very small bathroom ( difficult to use) and the ... Read more

We have completed 5 cruises, 3 on Nautica back to back and 2 on Marina back to back in the last 18 months. Chose to return to Nautica for our 6th cruise of 18 nights as we found Marina impersonal and lacking the atmosphere of Nautica. ... Read more

Difficult weather conditions were compounded by Nautica Purser staff struggling to efficiently deal with immigration requirements and made for a chaotic cruise. It is as if Oceania did not cruise to these ports (in China, Korea and Japan) ... Read more

Disorganised staff lost us three days of shore trips and no apology. Extremely dismissive attitude: 'don't worry you'll get your money back at the end. (In USD at a very poor rate). Money back is not the issue. A trip to the Great Wall, ... Read more

We are new to Oceania and had booked what we considered to be a great N. Asia port programme. In the end so much of it just didn't happen. I guess they tried hard to overcome the problems that beset this cruise but the first requirement ... Read more

Before we left for our trip, we were notified at the last minute of a port change from Tianjin to Incheon, Korea. Thankfully, this did not affect our plans as we weren't flying home until Sunday, March 6th. After staying in Bangkok for a ... Read more

From boarding to departure each day was anticipated. When you are older and used to the delightful areas of the "R" Ships, it becomes a full twenty nights of relaxing sea adventure. The Nautica crew was there to provide me with ... Read more

We were very disappointed in two aspects of this cruise. One, the staterooms were old, small and outdated. We paid for a concierge-level verandah, which we do on all cruises we take. The room was smaller than we are used to, and the ... Read more

After reading some of the reviews on Cruise Critic we were a bit apprehensive about whether the high standards of our two previous Nautica cruises would be maintained, since the NCL acquisition. We need not have worried! The ship was ... Read more
