Chose for itinerary and reputation for dining. Previous cruise on Nautica had been great. Lack of timely service in grand dining room appeared to be due to a shortage of staff. Food was not always served timely or warm. Waves had good selection and nice assortment of food and dinner themes. Room was kept clean and neat with ice and water. Embarkation and debarkation were well handled. Much of decor in public areas has not been refreshed. E.g. Sports pictures in bathrooms were from renaissance days. Wine and wine packages expensive and $25 corkage fee seemed high. Shore excursions were expensive but handled well and we enjoyed the ones we took. Entertainment was creative and enjoyable. Have another Oceania on insignia in December and hope that it is more up to the previous Nautica standard.

Somewhat of a Letdown
