Nice itinerary, old tired ship, service and food average

Jan 20th, 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

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

Sep 9th, 2019

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.

Oceania Delivers Quality

Jun 30th, 2019

My critique is an honest evaluation. I am a professional novel writer as well as having 47,000 followers on Trip Advisor. Oceania is a well run cruise line that approaches five stars. It would do well to have more of a "Ritz Carlton" feeling with the staff, especially the front desk and concierge. "No" should not be in their vocabulary. Having been on many Oceania cruise as well as other lines, I felt that the this one was a bit of budget cutter when compared to the others. (Especially with entertainment and wait staff in public areas.) The Horizon lounge had especially poor service with a 15-20 minute wait for a drink which on more than several occasions came incorrectly. We have two additional cruises booked for 2019 fall and 2020 June. I would like to see more elegance among the passengers who a noticeable percentage seemed to be on vacation from Walmart. The casual dress policy has turned into a bit of a joke. The old adage" you act like you dress" has some validity. All in all a nice trip. We look forward to our next trips.

Nautica - great staff, excursions - not so great

May 4th, 2019

We signed up for this cruise based on the itinerary so we were very disappointed in the excursion changes an omissions. We didn’t find the food exceptional but we certainly had plenty of it. I have to emphasize that the international staff on this ship is their very best asset!
