Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2015
  • Destination: the South Pacific
  • Cabin Type: Penthouse Suite

Just got back from our curise on Nautica, it is always the best in yachting one can experience. You feel like you are at your home away from home. We are been on serveral cruises with Oceania on Nautica.

The service is always top notch!!! The food is amazing and never disappoints especially Polo and Toscana. We have always taken the private tours which are also wonderful with the most amazing guides/drivers.

We love this ship so much while on board we booked another cruise with them.

We have tried other cruise lines and always come back to Oceania!!!!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


We had come into Beijing several days early so did not take a tour with Oceania in this port. We did however see the Great Wall, Forbidden City, Summer Palace, flew to Xian to see the Terra Cotta Warriors, which is a must see!!!

Joy Lee was our guide who was excellent and took us to all the highlights in Seoul. Great lunch at the Castle Hotel. Great shopping area and tasted the food got us back in plenty of time to ship.

Gion was a wonderful little city not to be missed, cute girls dressed like Geishas are fund to take photos with. Also great places to have a wonderful lunch.

Most impressive is the Golden Palace on the water-It will take your breath away our guide here was Happy and she was wonderful.

Lots of wonderful Buddahs to see and such a charming place, we really love it and it was truly worth going to see, even got to see young adults doing a Kabuki show while we were there. Our guide here was our favorite her name was Sue.

We went here to see the Cherry Blossoms which we did but also to our surprise was a couple who was taking their wedding pictures in traditional attire, which you would not see anywhere else.

We booked a private/guide through the ship who was amazing and took us to see all the highlights Shanghai had to offer. Her name was Angeline, she took us to the water town which was well worth the drive. Too many places to mention!!!!!!
