Food was awful. Staff tried very hard but you could tell that most were new.

Nautica Cruise Review by poor value

Had traveled on Oceania in the past, including Nautica. Loved the cruises but this last cruise was a true nightmare. Moldy shower curtains. Dirty dinning room curtains. Food offerings were limited as compared to past cruises. Staff was trying to do its best, but passenger/crew ratio, I would guess, was lower than usual. Room service was awful.

One shore excursion was scheduled for 3 hours duration and tour guide "decided" to extend the tour one additional hour even though most folks on bus wanted to get back based upon the scheduled time. Excursions was expensive for the value and sights seen.

Entertainment was as to be expected on a smaller ship. Overall, the ship is really getting long in the tooth and needs to be refurbished or taken out of service. When we discussed the situation with the concierge, he agreed and we received a $2,000.00 credit toward another cruise. Oceania would not have offered the credit if it did not agree with our assessment.
