This is the first cruise I've been on in which it improved with each day. At first, I had misgivings & couldn't see any differences, but the overall service and attention to detail soon became apparent. The ship is beautifully ... Read more

After reading some of the reviews on Cruise Critic we were a bit apprehensive about whether the high standards of our two previous Nautica cruises would be maintained, since the NCL acquisition. We need not have worried! The ship was ... Read more

First time on Oceania but about 25 cruises under our belt ranging from Azamara, Celebrity, Princess, etc. We had really looked forward to this cruise based on the itinerary (Tahiti) and the Oceania's reputation for excellent food. ... 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

Don't do this in the summer. We were hit with temperatures in the upper 90s and higher, with humidity around 100-percent much of the time. Other than that, and the chairs scraping noise from the grill above our stateroom (see cabin ... Read more

Our cruise began inauspiciously with the Oceania staff at the airport having no record of our booking the cruise. But after being shown the confirmation, the response was impressive. We were guided by two employees -- one in charge of our ... Read more

My wife and I just completed a 12-night Baltic cruise on the Marina. Our previous cruise was a 12-night Med cruise in the summer several years ago on the Celebrity Solstice. I honestly have to say that the experience was as about the ... 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

My husband and I have cruised many times. The Marina is a great ship with lovely decor and for our recent 2 week cruise, we had the best staff and crew. The entertainment was the best I've seen on a cruise ship, the food was great and we ... Read more

I have read some of the reviews, and wonder how anyone could give Oceania and their Marina ship anything but 5 stars. True, we have not been on 40 or 50 cruises like others, but have been on enough cruises to know the differences between ... Read more

This was our second Oceania cruise (last year: Scandinavia and the Baltics on the Marina) and we just booked another cruise in 2016! The fine quality of the Oceania line has been maintained despite it's sale to Norwegian Cruise Line. The ... Read more

Regatta through Panama Canal Apr 23, 2015. Ship — moderate size (650+) but both the main dining room and the entertainment room could not accommodate a full shipload of passengers. On one or two nights the line was very long at ... Read more

I purposely waited 5 days to write this review because I felt I could write a better review after I rested up from the long trip back. Unfortunately, that has not happened, so here goes! First, the ship is beautiful, the crew was great ... 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

First time on Oceania, but will be the last because they did not live up to "consistently delivering excellent service and value", as they state. The Marina ship was very nice and the service on board was fine. We found the ... Read more
