Ship Facts: Nautica Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Nautica Deck Plans
Nautica Africa disappointing experience on board
The Ship caters to the elderly in respect to entertainment and music on board. Music from the 1930-50. War time songs and big band sounds. This resulted in a negative experience for us. It was like being in a senior citizens home.

The Shore excursions were overpriced and didn't provide the description. We booked ten tours prior to departure. 50% of these tours failed to deliver. Wrong venue in Mumbai not the 100 year old Regal Movie Theatre. Cochin we were supposed to have one about and fifteen minutes to explore Jew Town we had 10 minutes so were not able to visit a heritage site. The tour bus in Kenya described as a tour in comfort, had leaking air conditioning was unsafe and had a collision.

The ship arrived in the Maldives late, it was 4.15 by the time we got to the second rate resort and travelled back by boat in the dark arriving at 7.15 pm. The following day we had to leave very early for Kudos Bandos as the ship was sailing.

Although the itinerary is exceptional we would have had a better experience if we had arranged our own tours as did many of the passengers.

The guest entertainers were good but the programming was wrong. Some nights no entertainment and many performances were by the ships on board musicians.

The gym was excellent.

The staff excellent.

The food as expected on a ship of this class.

The Concierge excellent.
