This was our fifth cruise on Oceania and our second on the Nautica. It is beginning to look a little worn, but that should be addressed with the scheduled makeover. The service and food remain impeccable. In every restaurant and bar you are greeted cordially and made to feel special. We never had a bad meal. Our cabin attendant and her assistant took great care of us. The cabins provide plenty of storage space and are well laid out. If the bed frame were just an inch higher it would make storage of suitcases much easier. The bathroom in anything but the suites, to put it mildly, is compact but functional. The shower is especially tiny and is our only major complaint. The guest lecturer was excellent giving insight into the history and attractions of the area and the ports we were visiting. We were disappointed that Nagasaki was substituted for Incheon on our itinerary but understand that this was something beyond the control of Oceania.

Cabin Review

Veranda Stateroom
Cabin B1 6070
It is beginning to show its age but remains quite comfortable with plenty of storage and an excellent bed. Raise the bed frame an inch to enable easier storage of luggage. The shower is much too small. The upcoming renovation should include the provision of outlets by the bed.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Be forewarned that the ship docks very far from Beijing. In fact, it is even quite a distance to Tianjin and the shuttle provided only took us to a rather seedy shopping center still far from anything worth visiting.
