"As for the cruise itself, we have been on 36 cruises now, and the food is better on Celebrity than on Oceania, and the red wines that were part of the premium beverage package were not what a ship like this should be served when you are spending almost $1,000 per night.Oceania assured us that their agent could still get us e-tourist visas for India even though India was no longer allowing Canadians to obtain an e-visa due to a spat they were having with the Canadian government...."Read More

My partner and I chose this cruise based on Oceania's tag line "Best cuisine in the sea", or words to that effect. Twenty days on the ship and it was downhill from day two. The problem was the food. It was not just us, but practically every other passenger we spoke to, We have cruised on other lines, Cunard, Celebrity, Holland America, Windstar and have never been disappointed with the ...

In May 2022, my husband and I along with 4 others in our group, put deposits down on what I thought would be a cruise of a lifetime. So I thought. Barcelona to Dubai with visits to Israel and Egypt was what sold us. Fast-forward to 2023 and this cruise itinerary was basically scrapped including Israel, Egypt, Jordan & Oman (and rightfully so because of the war.) However, Oceana replaced these ...

Beware Oceania. Middle East cruise that was drastically changed. Disappointing, expensive waste of time and money.

Nautica is a beautiful little ship. The crew were wonderful. Unfortunately this didn’t make up for a number of other issues relating to this supposedly upmarket company. 1. The itinerary change was so drastic it didn’t resemble what we booked in any way. Other ships still visited Egypt, Oman and Salalah and these ports were cancelled on our trip. The day we were meant to visit Athens was windy ...

We had sailed on 2 previous Oceania cruises and believed we found a new favorite cruise line. Having been on 7 different lines over the years and multiple cruises, we decided to book our 3rd Oceania on the Nautica which we were on last year traveling Turkey and Greece. We traveled the Holy Land itinerary from Dubai to Barcelona on the same ship and same room. We had booked this tour on board ...

Cutbacks have made Oceania quite mediocre.

We are a retired couple who have cruised with Oceania for many years. In the past, they have been outstanding; however, recent cutbacks have resulted in our May 2023 Singapore to Dubai cruise falling well short of our expectations. Specifically: * Although the meals were well-cooked and attractively presented, the food quality was lower. We received shrimp whose meat was mush; hard to cut ...

My first trip to Asia and I am so glad I could travel on my home away from home - Oceania Cruise Line. The crew of the Nautica was so welcoming, the right balance of professional and friendly. We spent 41 days on board from Singapore to Barcelona. My only regret really is that the timing for this cruise was pushed back a bit, so instead of sailing in March it was in May. This meant that we were ...

This is our third trip on Nautica. We stopped for two years because of Covid On this trip - the food is excellent - the staff is ver friendly and courteous - the room stewards ( ours is May ) are superb But - The internet service is one person per cabin, even though we paid for two people. Website misleading, only states free internet no mention of restrictions per cabin - ...

Cruise's plan was changed but stops were chosen in uninteresting places. It could be improved with better quality shore excursions . The tours were superficial and looked as if no thought had been put into them. I don't understand the answer to my questions...this is what we can get. So tell that to your passengers and charge much less than you charge d. The crew on board was excellent, ...

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and the reputation of having some of the finest food and wines on the sea. Oceania assured us that their agent could still get us e-tourist visas for India even though India was no longer allowing Canadians to obtain an e-visa due to a spat they were having with the Canadian government. We advised the agent of this. However, they insisted we could ...

First time on this line and attracted by the great itinerary. Used to the ship and cabin layout as we are multi time cruisers with Azamara/Regent/Holland America. The experience on the ship was good with the staff pleasant and obliging. The food was very good and found their approach to dress standards sensible, although some do push the envelope and look 'too casual' after hours in areas such as ...
