The ship is in excellent shape now that it has aged a bit. The cabins seem smaller than the 242 sq. feet advertised. Oceania is now being cheap with soap and shampoo--not exactly what you expect from a luxury cruise. Other than that, ... Read more

The service on this ship was outstanding! Staff were very friendly and very helpful. However the general operation of the ship seemed to be sadly lacking. We rarely saw or heard from the captain other than to give us our compass bearing. ... Read more

The Marina is a classy ship that was kept spotless. The highlight of the Marina was the friendliness and service of the crew. Oceania's employee training program must be top notch because every crew member we encountered said yes with a ... Read more

From boarding to departure each day was anticipated. When you are older and used to the delightful areas of the "R" Ships, it becomes a full twenty nights of relaxing sea adventure. The Nautica crew was there to provide me with ... 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

Being experienced cruise guests, we were very disappointed by our first Oceania cruise. The atmosphere on board was boring, we felt being treated like bank accounts, which are debited by every staff contact. Worst was our experience ... Read more

First let me say we are in our 50's, I think this is important because a review from someone my age may be very different from someone in their 70's. We are also from the US. We allowed Oceania to make our flight reservations so we flew ... Read more
