Truly memorable experience. Food was excellent, entertainment was excellent, ship is an ideal size-big enough but also small enough to allow guests to meet each other and make friends. Crew recognized us from prior trips. This is a trip for people who want to learn and see, not to sit and relax. It is definitely an older group of people, with a tiny smattering of younger people.It is an English speaking cruise, but many of the passengers are not native English speakers, which is a great chance to meet new people and learn from them.

The side trips were a bit rigidly scheduled, i.e. it's 11:00 o'clock so we need to be in the cathedral, etc. Two to three hours of walking across undulating cobblestones can be a bit tiring even for people in good shape. One of the problems was when handicapped people are included on these walking tours they become very slow and difficult. If that is to be the case we suggest adding a motorized scooter or equivalent to aid these folks.

The crew on the Nautica are extremely friendly and accommodating. We got the feeling that this attitude is sincere and not just motivated by tip expectations.

Ideal size ship. When you arrive in port you are not in a crowd of 3000 people. Small enough to get to know people.
