Oceania Does It Right

|

This was our fifth cruise on Oceania and our second on the Nautica. It is beginning to look a little worn, but that should be addressed with the scheduled makeover. The service and food remain impeccable. In every ...

Really not impressed

Maybe it's a matter of expectations and what you consider expensive. With an average verandah room and the cost of $16,000 for a 15 day cruise, we had high expectations. This was by far the most expensive cruise ...

They covered it all; a great cruise

The ship is lovely, all paneled walls and elegant furnishings. People have referred to it as old world. I also like very much that it is smaller than the ones we have been on in the past. It is not so exhausting ...

Hong Kong to Bangkok

We chose this cruise for the itinerary plus our experience on a previous cruise on Riviera. A big plus was that Nautica, being a small ship, was able to dock close to several of the city centres rather than at ...

Deceitful pricing

Great ship. Good food,. Fantastic crew and organisation. However, you WILL pay $2000 above sticker price for a 2 week cruise. Gratuities, excursions, drinks. Most reviled by all was the "free drinks package." It is ...

Oceania has gone from very good to very poor

This was our 5th cruise with Oceania- it was our last. The service in the Grand Dining was below average. It appears that Oceania has understaffed the wait staff particularly for the evening meal. In the Grand ...

Southeast Asia on the Nautica

We chose this cruise for ports and because there was bridge. Embarkation was easy; disembarkation was chaos. We were given times to disembark in groups. Repeated announcements said Indian officials were not ready, ...

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 ( ...
