Sail Date: Oct 2018
Cabin: Concierge Level Veranda Stateroom

We chose this cruise primarily for the ports included in the itinerary. In addition we wanted to try a smaller ship. We had sailed twice on the Oceania Riviera and in both instances had excellent experiences. We hoped that on a smaller ship the service wold be even one notch higher. Overall we enjoyed the cruise. However we were a little disappointed with our experience on the Nautica. We thought the service on our previous cruises on the Riviera was more personal and friendly, the staterooms were nicer, there was a better selection of facilities and entertainment and even the food was better.

For this cruise on the Nautica there were a number of things we liked, however, as well as some things we didn't like. The main positives and negatives were....


Cabin Review

Concierge Level Veranda Stateroom

Cabin A3

Our concierge verandah stateroom on deck 7 was compact but clean & functional - everything worked & there was a surprising amount of storage space. Many other people have complained about the minuscule bathroom & shower & I fully agree with those comments.

Port Reviews


Kotor is very easy to visit on your own. The ship docked directly in port, just a very short walk to the main gate into the walled city. Downloaded Tom's port guide for Kotor and did our own self-guided walking tour. It was a beautiful place that we had the good fortune of visiting on a beautiful day. The sail-in to the Bay of Kotor at dawn was a feast for the eyes and the sailaway at night with the town and the surrounding mountain all lit up was spectacular as well .

Argostoli (Kefalonia)

We took the Highlights of Kefalonia excursion given by Avalon Tours but booked through Shore Excursions. Excursion gave us a chance to see and experience different parts of this lovely island. Had a great time. Would highly recommend this excursion.
