W e chose this cruise because of the itinerary-particularly Latvia and Lithuania, which are two countries that my wife and i had never been to. It has also been 16 years since our previous Baltic cruise, so we were curious about potential ... Read more

We really enjoyed this Baltic cruise on the Nautica. We like the way we are treated by Oceania and we especially enjoy the food onboard. This cruise was port intensive with only one sea day, so we knew that there would be plenty of ... Read more

Have done many cruises on the Nautica. Love the small ship atmosphere and the\of the ability of the ship to stop in smaller ports. The ship is beautifully decorated and easy to negotiate. There is a great selection of dining choices ... Read more

The destinations of Iceland and Greenland were new to us and were as hoped for. We had sailed with Oceania before on Insignia and thoroughly enjoyed it with good shows and lectures. This one was different as the shows were poor ... Read more

OVERVIEW: We (my wife and I) selected this cruise based on previous experience sailing with Oceania, and also the itinerary of this specific cruise. The Norwegian Fjords were on our "bucket list" and this cruise also included ... Read more

We have taken two previous Oceania Cruises and have very much enjoyed cruising with Oceania both on their larger ships and smaller one. Although the Nautica is small,it was comfortable. My husband refuses to take a cruise serving ... Read more

We originally chose a cruise of New England and Canada, but Oceania offered us an upgrade to a Penthouse suite to change to a Scandinavian Cruise on the Baltic Sea-Southampton, England to Copenhagen, Denmark (12 days). We arrived a day ... Read more

We chose this cruise for its itinerary to sail around the coast of Spain. We wanted to try a smaller ship, as we had sailed on all big ships in the past (1900+, and mostly 3000+). I guess you would consider Oceania a hybrid luxury line, ... Read more

Our first Oceania cruise and sadly our last. For the following reasons: The Nautica did have good food, some of the best we've had on a cruise ship. The service was OK but it was very slow at several of our meals in the main dining ... Read more

We have cruised many times with mid-size ships primarily on Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Princess and wanted to see if we'd enjoy the "lite" luxury of Oceania. Pros: Small ship experience, no crowds. No art sales, photos & ... Read more

This was my first cruise with Oceania (have cruised in the past on larger ships/other lines) and Mom's 9th cruise with Oceania (5th on the Nautica). Traveling with an experienced cruiser makes a difference! We flew into Athens a day ... Read more

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 chose this cruise for ports and because there was bridge. Embarkation was easy; disembarkation was chaos. We were given times to disembark in groups. Repeated announcements said Indian officials were not ready, but did not tell later ... 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

Oceania is our favourite cruise line, having completed 11 cruises. We have sailed on all their ships except the newest Sarina. Compared to some other cruise lines we have sailed with, Oceania is absolutely the best, and the crew on all ... Read more

We loved the itinerary. The service was impeccable. Dr. Ruiz was brilliant and spellbinding. The food was delicious, especially Polo. I enjoyed the shows, coloring and the movies when not on excursions. We had a perfect outside ... Read more

we chose the cruise because we had been on the Oceania marina a year before and the cruise was excellent (New Zealand to Tahiti). Also, the countries visited (China to India) were new to us. We selected a concierge veranda room, but there ... 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
