Memorable Indian Ocean cruise.

Wonderful cruise. Will have many long-time memories. Met very nice people. Uneven excursions but most were fascinating.

Eventful Indian Odyssey

Mar 10th, 2020

We loved the cruise though the ship did not complete its itinerary. NCL and Oceania did the right thing by diverting us to Dubai and canceling their Asian itineraries. Muscat was great!

Arround the Horn

Feb 8th, 2020

The cruise schedule does not provide for optimum wildlife viewing, arriving late morning in most cases. This particular cruise was further impacted due to bad weather, causing delayed embarkation and departure from Capetown, an abbreviated stay in Walvis Bay, by-passing Port Elizabeth. The stop in Maputo was a wasted day that could have been better spent as an overnight in two of the other ports.

Interesting African Cruise

Jan 25th, 2020

The cruise was good, although every time I moved my arm I was in pain. At least the doctor on ship X-rayed and let me know it was not broken. He gave me a sling which was a big help! I have an appointment with an orthopedic at his suggestion. There were too many days at sea due to the Namibia jaunt and the bad weather. The staff and food on Nautica made up for any complaints. It was a good trip which would have been more enjoyable had I not fallen.

Nice itinerary, old tired ship, service and food average

Jan 21st, 2020

Oceania will need to figure out how to supply simple, fine cuisine rather than the typical quick buffet type offerings on the ship. Also not safe food temperatures I think. Mayo and tarter sauce not refridgerated as far as I know. Some food items may be stored overnight and served the next day making fresh food impossible. Multiple Asian food nights for example. Asian food on all ships are nothing like properly prepared Asian food in major cities in the US. I could not eat anything. Lobster in the specialty and main dining smell funny and I heard many complaints. Food manager and Chefs were attentive but the problem is more difficult a fix. Cuisine needs to be rethought out and made smaller, fresher, better quality.

Nautica. 10 Night Italian Spotlight. We enjoyed the cruise

Nov 26th, 2019

It was a good cruise, weather played a role in what we did and where we went, but did not put a damper on our spirits. Fellow passengers we met were nice, friendly and fun. I give thanks and praise to our Captain and his staff for a safe journey.

French wine and Iberian history

Nov 4th, 2019

We are veteran Oceania travelers because we really enjoy the line, its excellent service and food, and its relatively small ships. We liked the itinerary and had pleasant excursions (privately booked) in most of the ports. We weren't able to visit Guernsey due to rough seas, but understand that's always a risk. The Cruise Director and his staff did a great job putting together a plan for our unplanned sea day, and we had a fine time despite missing the port.

Amazing Baltic cruise

I would recommend this cruise to anyone. The size of the ship was perfect as compared to the other huge ships. The excursion choices were very good and varied. Overall the tour guides were very good.
