Imagine yourself in a floating country club, and you'll have a good feel for Nautica's onboard ambience: elegant, understated and luxurious but with a casual vibe that keeps the whole experience from being ...

The itinerary is outstanding with visits to exotic ports and beautiful islands. The Nautica is the perfect ship for this cruise. The cruise is long but the days go fast. The days at sea are welcome for relaxing and getting a tan. The ... Read more

We chose this trip for the itinerary, never haven't been to any ports on this cruise. We were not disappointed. Our booking included a 3 day pre-cruise tour package. This was excellent for folks like us who had not visited South ... Read more

This was our third cruise with Oceania and having experienced Riviera we were a little concerned at how we would enjoy such a long cruise on a small ship. Overall we had a great time, with the food outstanding as ever in the Grand Dining ... Read more

When I discovered the cruise in June 2015 for nov/dec 2015 around South Africa and a reasonable rate, I did not hesitate , certainly that a few years ago we were already on the Nautica and for once there is an interesting program for this ... Read more

This is our first cruise on an R-class ship. Our previous cruises were on the larger O-class. Pre-cruise communications from Oceania were abysmal. A lot of uncertainties and confusion with regards to things like yellow fever ... Read more

I paid $20,000 for this trip. What I got was 1. An extremely tiny room 2. An RV sized bathroom 3. A prepaid beer/wine program at over $500 that would not provide me with more than one drink at a time because my wife (not on ... Read more

My wife and I are seasoned cruisers, always at a "luxury level" ie. Regent or Silversea. Due to unexpected health issues we had to change a spring Regent Cruise to the fall. This itinerary stood out but Mariner did not have any ... Read more

We have been cruising since 1993 and this was our first time with Oceania - choosing it for the itinerary. Before we ever left home there was confusion. Alarming notifications from Oceania stating that no-one would allow to board unless ... Read more

This is a very personal view of the cruise based on our previous experiences. This cruise ship is very smart. Very well looked after and spotless clean. Posh. Upper class. Pretentious. It seemed to me that it was trying very hard to be ... Read more

The fun of this one month cruise was destroyed by the fact that the ship missed 4 ports of the 19 included in the itinerary, including Maldives, due to the declaration of the State of Emergency in the eve of our arrival (but without any ... Read more

This was our first time on Oceania line (which does not appear to have a very high profile in Australia it seems - perhaps it will change once NCL open their own office here rather than an agency) and overall we were very happy with the ... Read more

Chose this cruise simply because of the itinerary. The idea of 18% added on to all purchases is anathema to us but we decided we would not purchase anything that involved this charge. Embarkation was quick with baggage being taken ... Read more

We booked this cruise about 4 weeks before departure. I was disappointed at first that I wasn't able to get a room with a balcony but our ocean view room was perfect and I'm glad we didn't spend the extra money! Everything about this ... Read more

My wife and I have gone on numerous cruise lines, and this was our second on Oceania. Our first Oceania experience was on the larger Marina, and this time we chose the smaller Nautica. We had a wonderful experience. The ship had been ... Read more

Fabulous Cruise! We loved our destinations, excursions provided through Oceania, and food. Yes, we're the type of guest, once in port, to get off the boat immediately and run till the sun goes down. We don't expect to be ... Read more

We have sailed several times before, but this our first on Oceania. We were offered a great deal to change our Oceania South American cruise to this one, so we took it. We were given a penthouse suite with a butler. It also entitled us to ... Read more

1. Ship size - just right. Considered the small end of a mid-size ship. Very clean. 2. Crew to passenger ratio - not 1 t 1 but close. 3. Crew/steward/waiter service - absolutely marvelous. Alway a smile and greeting from someone ... Read more

We took the June cruise on Nautica circumnavigating the British Isles in a veranda room. This was our first trip on Oceania and there were many good points: check-in was the smoothest I can recall on a cruise, and so was debarkation. The ... Read more

We looked at a 40-page description of excursions and selected one for Glasgow that included a residence and a tea room designed by an architect named Macintosh. We weren't all that excited about it, but at least it took us on a bus to ... Read more

The ship, meals and staff were quite good. The excursion department left much to be desire. The tour in Taiwan lasted about half the allotted time and much of that was spent with our tour guide looking for most of the group. He seemed like ... Read more

Embarkation in Cape Town seamless and we were soon on board. Nautica was in port for one night before sailing which gave us time to stock up on liquor at Pick n Pay at the V & A Waterfront. Nautica has the big plus of allowing liquor ... Read more
