Very disappointed in the "refurbished"ship, again small cabins, televisions,no outlets. Service in restaurants not up to the price we paid for this cruise. Food was disappointing for a luxury cruise line.

The Cruise from Hell by SafariHunter

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We missed four planned excursions due to the weather and poor planning. That equaled one-forth of our cruise trip. Missed the elephant park which we really were looking forward to, as well as Maputo, Mt. Nelson Tea and Botklierskop Private Game Reserve. Seas and weather were terrible, activities on board ship mainly mindless, and to compensate, they gave us drinks for 2 hours when seas were rough and people too sick to eat or drink. Waves 30+ feet. Oceania gave us bogus onboard credit at 7 am the morning we disembarked. Couldn't use it. They WEREN'T responsive in a way that I expected from their advertising and what I had heard. Food was good, but not phenomenal. Very old crowd. Except for one young woman, we were probably the youngest on the ship. Had to take malaria medication for a port we couldn't enter. The worst cruise we ever took!

We took this trip because of the itinerary and the extras offered such as paid gratuities, onboard credit, and free excursions. That was as expected. The botched airport to ship transfer was a real downer. It cost $139pp and we could have taken a direct train from the airport to Southampton for 16 euros. The ship itself was OK, but showed its age.

Enjoyed the trip very much so (good food, nice excursions, knowledgeable guides). Jennifer Martin was very helpful in booking this trip and in providing us with all of the necessary details.

Great itinerary and service. by nowilliams

This was our first time sailing with Oceania and we had a great time.  The highlight of the cruise was the overnight in Bordeaux, France--the city is beautiful by day and magical at night.  The Nautica is an older ship that is in need of updating.  The service by the staff is absolutely top of the line.  The overall food experience was very good, but not the wow experience that we were expecting.  Tuscano, one of the two specialty restaurants, was most excellent, but Polo was below expectations.  Two of us at our table had to send food back for being overly salty and one other person had two badly cooked steaks in a row.  If you are looking for good evening entertainment, choose another cruise line.  We will gladly sail Oceania again because of their smaller ship itineraries--if the price is right.  But we've had better food and entertainment on Celebrity.

On this, as most other ships, dine on a lower deck during rough seas -- surprising how many persisted in not doing this on our only "rough" day.

Dress appropriately for the specialty restaurants and for tea time.

The intimacy of the smaller Oceania Ship is special, we have sallied on Nautica twice and love the ship and the crew and would not hesitate to sail again and again.
