Sailed October 2016
October perfect weather for a ten-day Malta, Sicily, and Greek Isles. The spacious 288 penthouse cabin 8010 was a super location - slightly away from the elevator but close enough to be convenient. Our traveling companions were next door ... Read more

We enjoyed everything about our cruise which was booked through Go Next travel agency through the Brown University travelers. Our verandah state room was very nice although the bathroom was a little tight, especially the shower. We booked ... Read more

Friends recommended oceania cruises because of the good food. The food was good, but compared to the other cruiselines where we booked balcony huts in Europe since 2010, this was by far the worst in size, also the bathroom was far too ... Read more

This cruise reminded us of Azamara with whom we have often sailed. Boarding and disembarkation was smooth, efficient and fast. We had a very comfortable windowed cabin with plenty of storage. The shower and bathroom were small but ... Read more

As the saying goes, how many chances do you have to make a first impression? We have traveled on several cruise lines including Disney, Princess and some smaller ones. Oceania was the most non-caring in their treatment of the entire ... Read more

Sailed September 2016
This was our second Oceania cruise. We had pretty high expectations and most of them were met. It's true that the ship is getting a little tired looking: railings that needed refinishing, paint that was chipped. However, it was ... Read more

As virgin ocean cruisers, but experienced river cruisers, we were not sure what to expect. We chose this particular cruise mainly because of the reputation of Oceania, the cruise had only one sea day, a relatively small number of ... Read more

Sailed August 2016
We choose Oceania on the recommendation of some friends who had taken their cruise in Alaska. In looking at the itinerary I saw that on Nautica's August 28, 2016 itinerary, there were some ports we had not been to so that is why I choose ... Read more

We like small ships and river cruises so Oceania was a preference over larger ships to see these locations. Verandah stateroom was roomy enough although bathroom and shower were small (not a surprise if you follow Cruise Critic). MDR food ... Read more

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

This cruise was beautiful and interesting, far more so than we expected. It was a Southampton round trip, themed around the Vikings. The itinerary was: Edinburgh, Shetland Islands, Faroe Islands, Akureyri and Isafjordur in northern ... 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

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
