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 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

This was our second cruise with Oceania. The first was a tour of the Baltic on the Marina. We chose this cruise because of it's interesting itinerary. The Insignia was appointed very nicely. We found the smaller ship to be a bit more ... 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

First the good - cabin was nicely appointed and extremely comfortable. We booked last minute and had to take a deluxe ocean view cabin on deck 4. We were pleasantly surprised! It was quiet, conveniently located just below the coffee bar ... Read more

We were so disappointed from the moment we were shown to our stateroom. The room was very dirty...sticky spots on carpet, black, greasy handprints on bathroom door and the shower had black soap scum all around the shower base. When brought ... Read more

We were very disappointed in two aspects of this cruise. One, the staterooms were old, small and outdated. We paid for a concierge-level verandah, which we do on all cruises we take. The room was smaller than we are used to, and the ... Read more

We returned last week from our sensational Oceania cruise from Singapore to Hong Kong, with stops in Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. Oceania consistently offers a superior cruise experience. Since my last Oceania cruise, I think they ... 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

We sailed the Med with Oceania Riviera and loved the 'O' experience. This itinerary through Asia suited us and was all we thought it would be and probably more. The Insignia (smaller ship) was perfectly sized for the ports as it was able ... Read more

First time cruisers on Oceania. My wife and I are both in our early 50's and have to admit that we felt very young on this ship, both in a positive and negative way. Spent two extra days in Singapore, which I would highly recommend to ... Read more

M y wife and I have been cruising for twenty five years so I guess that qualifies us as experienced. We arranged with Oceania for a pre cruise stay in Hong Kong and a post cruise stay in Bangkok. We were cruising on the Nautica one of ... 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

I arrived in Bangkok a week before the cruise to take advantage of a pre-cruise land excursion (Oceania's) to Angkor Wat in Cambodia. The next day the Concierge arranged for a cab for the day, which took me to several temples I wanted to ... Read more
