Nautica Cruise Review by onekr: Riviera

Sail Date: August 2010
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Rome (Civitavecchia)

We were on the Yacht Havens cruise that departed Rome on 8/05. Boarding was smooth. Cabin was at front of ship and slightly larger than cabins around the sides. But, the view might be better at the sides because the verandas are more open.

In general, pleasant voyage. Dining satisfactory. Crew friendly and hardworking. Most ports interesting. We liked the ports where we tendered much more than the ones where we docked. Walking from the piers was not ever pleasant. Marseilles was a particularly smelly, distant, and unpleasant pier.

Very disappointed that itinerary was changed from Sanary sur Mer to Toloun. Quite a let down from previous ports. Especially annoyed because little guidance was offered on what to do or how to get around at this port. Oceania intended to keep us safe. I understand that. But little was done to keep up the quality of the itinerary.

One of the fitness machines was broken for the entire voyage.

In general, we liked Oceania More and Nautica. Less
