Beware Oceania. Middle East cruise that was drastically changed. Disappointing, expensive waste of time and money.

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Nautica

Nautica is a beautiful little ship. The crew were wonderful. Unfortunately this didn’t make up for a number of other issues relating to this supposedly upmarket company. 1. The itinerary change was so drastic it didn’t resemble what we booked in any way. Other ships still visited Egypt, Oman and Salalah and these ports were cancelled on our trip. The day we were meant to visit Athens was windy ...

In May 2022, my husband and I along with 4 others in our group, put deposits down on what I thought would be a cruise of a lifetime. So I thought. Barcelona to Dubai with visits to Israel and Egypt was what sold us. Fast-forward to 2023 and this cruise itinerary was basically scrapped including Israel, Egypt, Jordan & Oman (and rightfully so because of the war.) However, Oceana replaced these ...

This is my second Queen Elizabeth review. Cabin - This time we were in cabin next door to where we stayed last year. Everything was well maintained, clean, and plenty of space and storage for our 34 night cruise. Service - impeccable everywhere. Food - Britannia MDR breakfast lunch and dinner always hot, beautifully presented and tasty. Freedom dining works for us. No queues. Every table ...

Just completed Barcelona to Abu Dhabi - 20 days on the refurbished Nautica. The refurb is outstanding! Better food in the Grand Dining Room. Portions are much better/lighter. Speciality venues are excellent. Butler was Superb! Excursions were very good and the overnight in Luxor was outstanding. I am baffled by the other reviews in that this was one of the best cruises we have ...

Background We mostly cruise with Viking, Tauck, and with others, but three years ago we saw this itinerary and we couldn't wait - and then we waited three years. We are also introverts, so there are things Oceania offers that are simply not relevant to us - the bar scene, the entertainment, the casino, the sea day activities. We spend a little more for a larger room where we can happily hang ...

20 Day cruise from Barcelona to Singapore via Suez Canal The Queen Elizabeth is a decent cruise ship and we had a room (although tiny shower cubicle) and balcony, but like many US owned Cruise lines costs on board are significant eg - Average to poor wifi £18 per day, drinks package £65 each per day (need to have for whole cruise), wine from £35 per bottle, G & T around £12, beer around £7. ...

The worse vacation experience

Other than the amount of emails sent before the voyage which left me wondering what I should do before embarking, the trip just got worse as the days went by. The cabin was small, lack of wardrobe space and a poky shower room. The toiletries provided were of poor quality, forcing me to buy a decent hair shampoo as soon I could get to some shops. But the most visible shortcomings were the total ...

We chose this cruise because the offer from the travel company (Imagine Cruising) seemed great. In hindsight it wasn't all that terrific. First of all, the ship is beautiful. Very understated, but at the same time oppulent. Beautiful chandeliers, nice rooms to relax in. Our stateroom (1105) was great. We stayed in that cabin for 5 weeks (Barcelona to Sydney). Room steward Steven was ...

Staff in the Lighthouse restaurant were fabulous and service exceptional, in particular Iveth Valle and Ovilen Pumbien. Our cabin attendant Juli Antara was also amazing. Trushant Ligam from masters of the seas was a very professional employee & always remembered our name and our family members. Eka was also very efficient and very new to the ship. These staff were very accommodating and work very ...

Itinerary was very good Barcelona to Dubai via Suez Canal. 19 days so plenty of time to check out most things. Embarkation at Barcelona was a nightmare. Three hours to board & no organisation in terminal what-so-ever. Cabin very good. Dining in restaurant & buffet very good. No complaints about the food at all. Entertainment was poor, especially for a 19 day cruise. Same trio or quartet ...
