Nautica Cruise Review by fastbailer

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jun 2015
  • Destination: the Baltic Sea
  • Cabin Type: Veranda Stateroom

We took the June cruise on Nautica circumnavigating the British Isles in a veranda room. This was our first trip on Oceania and there were many good points: check-in was the smoothest I can recall on a cruise, and so was debarkation. The staff were uniformly friendly and attentive.

Food in the main dining room was excellent throughout. Vegetarian choices abound but there are plenty of real food dishes to eat! Bars provided good service. Those of us who have cruised for many years can remember when liquor and wine at sea were a bargain, but no longer. There were two periods each day when all food service shut down for a couple of hours, which is not a terrible imposition, but the question is why?

Life on board was not uniformly excellent. Culture on this ten night cruise turned out to be 4 lectures each 45 minutes long about cities we would visit. And that was that. Excursions were very pricey; we took five and were not always pleased. On the up side, there is a good library of dvds and players in the staterooms.

This ship is clean and well maintained, especially for its age (roughly 17). Next time we are trying one of Oceania's two newer ships (and trying to ignore the excursions).
