Nautica - Oceania Cruises

Pros

Oceania has best food at sea, with no-fee specialty restaurants and vast menu choices.

Cons

Popular itineraries sell out quickly, and longer sailings may not appeal to time-constrained travelers.

Bottom line

Nautica offers plenty of amenities in the more intimate setting of a mid-sized ship.
