Having been on many cruises booked this one on a whim a bit too late for a good cabin. We thought we would not care on this itinerary since it would be too cold for a balcony--it was --but our mid-ship low deck cabin would become an inside ... Read more

The reasons we booked this cruise was because it was Oceania, the itinerary (going above the Artic Circle), no photographers, few children and no up-selling. We have cruised with Oceania quite a few times and enjoy the size of the ships, ... Read more

The itinerary was of great interest to us and we were not disappointed. The captain had to make some last minute changes to the order of ports visited and duration of stay due to events beyond his control, his decisions were well made and ... Read more

We decided to take the trip on the Nautica vs. other cruise lines visiting Norway because it included a trip over the top of Norway into the Barents Sea and the White Sea, with port stops in Murmansk, Arkhangelsk and the Solovetsky Islands ... Read more

Oceania performed as expected. The food was amazing, the ports of call were wonderful and the entertainment was very good. We thought Cory "from the bridge" did a wonderful job as cruise director. Captain Max was very ... Read more

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 in Copenhagen following ... Read more

This cruise had a good itinerary and went to cities we really wanted to see. The staff were wonderful, so polite and accomodating; the meals, especially in the Grand dining room and two specialty restaurants were all delicious and ... Read more

After having just read the review by Shoko I feel like we shared the exact same experience! I, too, discovered that Oceania was bought out by NCL and also found out that NCL is trying to 'come up' to Oceania's high standards. Well, in dong ... Read more

We sailed Oceania 5 years ago and loved it. This time we felt something different. We found out that it was bought out by Norwegian Cruise Lines. That explains it all. When we entered the room we had to get housekeeping to come back ... Read more

We are active, mature, independent experienced travelers who've been on 10 cruises or so. We had booked Oceania's Lima-Miami cruise, which they must have oversold because they kept sending emails inviting us to voluntarily switch to other ... Read more

Chose this cruise for itinerary (good) and reputation (overrated). Oceania's website is very poor which reflected their organisation. We booked Oceania air because of a direct flight, then found the flight was re-directed and when we ... Read more

I do not have adequate words to describe my first cruise on Oceania. Our carry on luggage was lost during embarkation and the Oceania staff told us they had searched the ship and could not find it. After hours of aggravation, my ... Read more

My wife and I chose Oceania for the interesting itinerary - Bangkok to Athens via some exotic ports. Top on our list was Petra, Luxor and the Valley of the Kings. We were on Deck 6 near the front on the Starboard side. The cabin itself ... Read more

I chose this cruise because of the ports it would visit and the extras included in the OLife Choice, which for us included airfare, 8 shore excursions (four for each of us) and unlimited wifi (one login which we shared on all devices). We ... Read more

We chose Oceania thinking it would be a step up from HollandAmericaLine, we were very wrong. The cabin, a balcony state room was smaller than the smallest HAL ocean view cabin we have ever had. The cruise director, David, is past ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of its itinerary, however the weather spoilt the first part of the trip as it was freezing in China and Japan. We had previously travelled on the Nautica in the Baltic and in hindsight we should have learnt ... Read more

The itinerary was the main reason for selecting this cruise. Also the boat is identical to an Azamara cruise we went on in the past which we absolutely loved. Plus Oceania was rated 1/2 star more "luxurious" than Azamara. I ... Read more

Chose the ship for the Itinerary and a promise for a luxurious onboard ambiance and enriching destination experience. Nautica did not live up to their promise. For example, while in South Africa (5 ports) it would have been nice to offer ... Read more
