Until June 23, 2021, we were great fans and faithful customers of Oceania Cruises, sailing with them 5-6 times including a Grand Voyage lasting 5 weeks. We thought their service and food were just outstanding on every cruise. Each ship is very clean. There is open seating in the main dining room which we really enjoy. There are no formal nights. The cabins are above average in terms of organization, bathroom size, and décor. The two larger ships, Marina and Riviera, have slightly larger and more modern cabins. Gratuities are not included. Pricing tends to be a good value for your money. We have always left the ships at the end of the voyages very happy that we had sailed with Oceania Cruises. Throughout our various sails, the only small complaints we had were with the spa staff, who, in general, tended to be unfriendly, almost surly, in some cases. I see, however, that Oceania has changed spa company so that problem may have been resolved. Our other concern was that there was definitely a herd mentality on most shore excursions, with many people always trying to get at the head of the line to get front seats on the bus. Some would bypass “the rule” of gathering in the theatre and waiting to be called to their bus. This was an unpleasant way of joining an excursion and often caused tension and aggravation. We were booked on Oceania’s Nautica to sail from Singapore to Hong Kong on March 8, 2022. We had booked in February of 2020, before the advent of COVID. Until June 23, 2021, Oceania had never once indicated that the cruise would be or even might be cancelled. In fact, in March of 2021, Oceania was actively marketing the cruise and began selling shore excursions for it. On June 23, 2021, we received a curt notice via email from Oceania that the cruise had been cancelled because the ship was going into dry dock. Needless to say, we were flabbergasted, disappointed, and angry that we had not received timely notice of the cancellation. It is commonly known that airline flights can be purchased 330 days in advance. In late April, we had booked three airline flights, and two hotels stays for this cruise, at a cost of thousands of dollars. And we had purchased from Oceania a full array of shore excursions, for which Oceania had gladly taken and used our money. On receiving the notice of cancellation, we repeatedly spoke with senior management at Oceania Cruises about the money we had laid out and tried negotiating a reasonable credit towards another cruise with them to replace the cancelled cruise. We had calculated that Oceania’s late notice had cost us over $3500 out of pocket. Oceania offered NOTHING. They refused to make any adjustments or offer any credit. Not only have we lost money, we lost dozens of hours of planning the cruise, flights, hotels, and excursions. We received no understanding or goodwill from Oceania management. We are extremely disappointed in Oceania Cruises given that we were loyal cruisers. Oceania could have easily foreseen that people had already made travel plans in accordance with the dates of the cruise. We should have received notice of cancellation before the 330 day window. We have been left scrambling to book with another cruise line that offers a similar itinerary to salvage thousands of dollars in flights to southeast Asia and back. This has required extensive research and rescheduling of other plans in our lives that we had carved out around the schedule of our original cruise. It’s been exhausting and not a good way to spend our summer. We do not plan to ever cruise with Oceania again. Before this incident, I would have awarded Oceania Cruises 4.5 stars, but given this recent fiasco, I have downgraded them to 2 stars.

We enjoyed our cruise from Rome to Dubai, first time on the ship and would happily sail on her again. Benefits are small lines, easy to get to know people, very accommodating crew, good list of excursions, excellent food, afternoon teatime, classical musicians and quality expert speakers. Negatives include lack of promenade deck for covered walking, some smallish staterooms, no religious services, casino space and rudimentary on-board entertainers. Re the staterooms, we opted for the PH-2 Penthouse Suite because the smaller ones with a veranda had a bed that almost touched the opposite wall. We would have had to sidle from one side to the other. As an amateur photographer, the itinerary was interesting and the ship itself has a lot of subject material.

This was an extremely attentive staff. The food was amazing over the top and the best we have ever had. The staff to guest ratio was so high the attentiveness was out of this world. We must have known over 20 of them by name by the end of the trip. We are looking at doing another cruise on Nautica this next year!

Have an OCEANIA CRUISE booked for Mar. 18 to Apr 3 2020, originally Hongkong to Tokyo. Every port on this cruise itinerary and the revised itinerary are refusing any foreign ships to dock and the airlines to HonKong have cancelled all flights until the end of April, 2020. Oceania has not responded to several of my emails and is not cancelling the cruise. The itinerary as of now is not allowed and unkown to the passengers. They have stated that if we cancel the cruise we will not refund us.They have not responded on where we will be able to disembark . Shameless. We have booked 4 cruises with them. Horrible customer service. Crystal, Celebrity, Holland America and Norwegian cruise lines have all offered reimbursement or cancellation of cruises in Asia. I am shocked at OCEANIA'S lack of communication and their decision to not refund their passengers WHO DO NOT WISH TO RISK THEIR HEALTH, RISK BEING QUARANTINED OR ACCEPT AN UNKNOWN ITINERARY in place of providing the tour they promised. Think of booking with Crystal or other lines that don't put their finances ahead of your health or your choice in itinerary. SAD!!!!!

The Nautica is a good friendly ship with an excellent crew who will look after all your needs, Just 650 passengers ideal for meeting people Our stateroom ewas clean and very comfortable sadly we missed a visit to Port Elizabeth owing to high winds closing the port but the ship coped well with the rough seas, The food is excellent so put on 6lbs, only slight complaint was that the food in the Grand Dinning room was not as hot as it should be. Otherwise a great cruise
