Oceania great food but poor treatment of passengers
"Our first Oceania cruise and sadly our last. For the following reasons: The Nautica did have good food, some of the best we've had on a cruise ship. The service was OK but it was very slow at several of our meals..."Read More

My husband and I usually cruise Celebrity but chose this cruise for its itinerary and the reputation of excellent food and service . Unfortunately we were disappointed by both . The embarkation was a disaster . Due to high winds in Cape Town the ship was late in arriving in dock . In fact over a day late but it did not warn passengers On the day , no one answered phone calls and there ...

Our party of four sailed on Oceania's Nautica in May 2019, leaving Barcelona onto Lisboa, with a southern dip to the Canary Islands. Spent additional four days in Lisboa and the surrounding area. The cruise itinerary was terrific, the main reason we chose. Alas, the ship is a tub, well past its prime. Built in 2000, this almost two decade boat shows its age. Cabin furnishings are ...

Oceania does not measure up to their puffery

We chose this cruise for its itinerary, and that was great. But arriving late 6 times at ports caused problems on tours (never Oceania's fault). Oceania claims to have "the finest cuisine at sea"--NOT TRUE! There were many problems with the cuisine. The coffee does not taste like coffee; we tried every conceivable way to get a good cup of coffee, but it would not happen; it tasted burnt and ...

We recently returned from a cruise around Italy. We traveled with friends who made the arrangements using Oceania Cruise lines. The ship we traveled on is named Nautica. My wife and I have cruised with several different cruise lines on ten prior occasions. The Nautica is a small ship – 684 total passengers with a staff of 400. We came away feeling that the overall experience was at the bottom of ...

We chose this cruise because of the ports in Japan and China. we had been on Oceania, Nautica only months ago cruising around the British isles. (a lovely trip excluding Nautica)). The trip to China and Japan highlighted all the failures of this cruise company and the confines of the ship along with seriously limited worthwhile lectures, entertainment (kabuki, Chinese music,) and any aspect of ...

Very little information on ports too late to really enjoyvisited. Local maps available only after arriving in port. Food in dining room hit or miss.Specialty restaurants disappointing and staff pretentious.Cast shows mediocre. Several excellent ...

We are frequent cruisers, 30 completed to date. We chose this Cape Town-Cape Town cruise because we are destination driven. What a disappointment! Because of weather issues, we did not dock at 3 ports in a 15 day cruise. Although weather is not in Oceania's control, the response and alternative planning is, which they failed to do. They COULD have added more game drives in the ports we did manage ...

Chose this cruise for itinerary (good) and reputation (overrated). Oceania's website is very poor which reflected their organisation. We booked Oceania air because of a direct flight, then found the flight was re-directed and when we asked for it to be reverted back to what we had booked were charged $340 each for the "change". We have contacted Oceania by mail and email, also through the ...
