Nautica cruise was most enjoyable!

Sail Date: September 09, 2016

Reviewed: 9 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Cabin: 4031

Ship is beautifully understated and very  comfortable!  Staff extremely friendly and always available.  Getting additional reservations before 8 in the specialty restaurants was difficult and the menu in the dining room on several evenings was not very appealing.

Cabin / Stateroom
Cabin was kept clean with fresh towels and ice regularly. Steward Min was very accommodating.Location was actually excellent because we never felt much motion even during the few rough nights.
The lighting in and near the closet is blocked when the closet door is opened, making it difficult to see inside the closet. Shower curtain much too short!
Ship's staff extertainment was enjoyable; considering the size of the ship the entertainment was good
Service and Staff
Zhana at the reception desk was always available to assist with a smile.
David Peterson, cruise director was excellent
Food and Dining
Presentation of food was beautiful; unfortunately the food came out only warm in most cases...except in the buffet where it was cooked to order. Quality of steaks was inferior.
Southampton (London), England
Newcastle Upon Tyne, England
Rosyth (Edinburgh), Scotland
Belfast, Northern Ireland
In order to see more of the city and surrounding area, we had a private tour guide.
Greenock (Glasgow), Scotland
Liverpool, England
Take time to see not onlly the Beatles Museum, but the others surrounding it around the deck area.
Dublin, Ireland
Holyhead, Wales
Be sure to see the lighthouse in good weather...
Waterford, Ireland
Plymouth, England


The area where smoking is allowed is much too close to the Spa and smoke was emanating in the corridors around it.
Some tours need Whisper System so guides can be heard.
Do not use the beauty salon. 70 lbs for a wash & blow dry and an extra 24 to use flat iron or curling iron...Poor job!
