Nautica Cruise Review by arriba

After many cruises with Oceania, this cruise was a large disappointment. To summarize:

This cruise being 20 days with 8 days at sea plus another day with port arrival at 4 pm, we were assured by Oceania there would be a bridge director on board, with instruction and duplicate play. It turned out they did not deliver on a firm promise. There were 30 to 40 irate bridge players on the ship the first day at sea.

The food was generally good but not nearly up to what we experienced on Oceania before.

Wait staff was inexperienced and untrained to the point of being comical at times.

The cruise director was either fired or quit shortly after sailing off, so about half the cruise there was no cruise director.

The lectures were not at all related to the itinerary.

Shore excursion were terribly overpriced.

After over 20 odd cruises, I have never been on a cruise where there were so many disgruntled passengers.
