October 2015 - 21 Night Footsteps Of Discovery (Istanbul To Dubai) Cruise on Nautica
John and Terry's review
This was our second cruise with Oceania on the Nautica. It felt like visiting our second home. The ambiance and amenities are superb. We loved dining in the dining room and having the option for private dining for two when we wanted. We chose this cruise because of the stops in Greece, Turkey, Israel, Egypt, Jordan and Dubai, and the transit of the Suez canal. The excursions to Salalah and Muscat Oman were pleasant but underwhelming. We were disappointed not to have seen Jerusalem owing to terrorist activity but understand and appreciate the cruise's caution. Would go again tomorrow if we could.
