First Ocean cruise. Will not be our last

Interesting itinerary and all I can say about the production team is wow

We picked this cruise for the itinerary. We wanted to see Iceland and Greenland and we got to go back to Ireland again. The Orkney Islands were interesting. We used Oceania for tender ports except for one and ...

Revamp welcome

This was my third cruise with Oceania. Having been on the Marina my first reaction when I entered the cabin was “ it has shrunk”. The shower was tiny. As a solo traveller I have no idea how a couple would cope. ...

Not what I expected

I chose this cruise based on the destinations and more importantly on the recommendation of previous Oceania cruisers. The ship was fine although it seemed to be ready for refurbishing. The food was okay, but not ...

Concur with HMCSBN's review

Recognizing that at any given time, the Wait Staff on a cruise ship is almost always in flux, we got the feeling many of the staff had just reported in for their first contract. HMCSBN nailed it on the crush for a ...

Great ports of call and selected excursions on a smaller ship

This was two ports in Scotland, three in Ireland plus Iceland and Greenland and Fareo islands. The North Atlantic was rough but we endured. We knew the smaller 55 thousand ton ship would have pluses and minuses, so ...

Great ship and good itinerary for Baltic Sea cruise

I choose the Baltic Sea cruise on Oceania Nautica because of the itinerary and the relatively small size of the ship. We spent 3 days in London (not enough time) before boarding the ship at Southampton and 2 days ...

Nautica in Baltic Sea

This was a last minute cruise deal that our neighbors were already booked on this cruise and it satisfied one of my cruising goals of seeing St Petersburg, Copenhagen, etc. Ship accommodations and staff were ...

Mixed Bag

This was our second Oceania cruise. We had pretty high expectations and most of them were met. It's true that the ship is getting a little tired looking: railings that needed refinishing, paint that was chipped. ...

Fantastic food, great service, terrific ports - what more could you ask

We really enjoyed this Baltic cruise on the Nautica. We like the way we are treated by Oceania and we especially enjoy the food onboard. This cruise was port intensive with only one sea day, so we knew that there ...

Wonderful Onboard Experience/ Substandard Outside Excursions

We have taken two previous Oceania Cruises and have very much enjoyed cruising with Oceania both on their larger ships and smaller one. Although the Nautica is small,it was comfortable. My husband refuses to take a ...
