The informal country hotel-style cruise line may offer a 'country club' dress code and relaxed atmosphere, but still offers the highest of standards when it comes to service and world class cuisine.

The neoclassical-style furnishings add character to Nautica's decor, made from the finest teak, custom carved stone and stunning tile work. Whether you book a stateroom or suite, you can enjoy Oceania Cruises patented Tranquillity Bed which comprise of a luxurious mattress, down feather pillows and duvets which are covered in the finest 700-count Egyptian cotton, while approximately 70% of the cabins feature private verandas.

  • The luxurious Grand Dining Room offers superb European-inspired cuisine.
  • The Polo Grill is renowned for its beef dishes, which are all USDA Prime and dry-aged for 28 days.
  • Toscana offers gourmet Italian-style cuisine.
  • The casual buffet-style dining at the Terrace Cafe offers an expansive menu of international-inspired dishes.
  • The poolside dining at Waves Grill is great for handmade burgers and milkshakes.

Before choosing where to dine, bear in mind that reservations are required for dining in the Polo Grill and Toscana, so book beforehand to avoid disappointment.

Entertainment onboard Nautica is as elegant and sophisticated as you would expect from a ship in the Oceania fleet. The Nautica Lounge offers live entertainment with headline acts that include music and comedy. After the show is over, head to Martini's bar where there is a fantastic selection of (unsurprisingly!) Martinis, while Polo Bar has a fine selection of single malts.

Customer reviews for Nautica

We started our holiday in Copenhagen, where we spent 2 days prior to boarding our cruise. The hotel here was perfectly located in the city center, close to the main attractions and is highly recommended - it us the Absalon hotel. We are very impressed with the quality of the service and facilities of Oceania. We particularly enjoyed the concept of small ship (about 680 passengers) - this meant that it is never over crowded; be it in the bars, restaurants, the pool area or the theatre. You also feel the attentive service from the staff - friendly and competent. The food was one of the reasons we booked with Oceania and I feared that this might have been a bit of a marketing hype - but it is not. All restaurants, from the simple Terrace self service to the two Speciality restaurants and the Dining Room, all serve excellent food. Only one area that I would mark down; that is the size of the bathroom - it is a little tight and we had a Concierge Balcony room. On the whole, top marks for this first cruise for us with Oceania. Also and as usual, the arrangements made by Iglu; flight, transfers, hotel and cruise were perfect. Thank you Iglu.

The first time on a small ship (670) guests. This caused minor problems when using the terrace cafe when people were going on trips as there were more guests requiring seats than were available. Bad weather added to the problem as we could not sit at the outside tables. Compared with the larger ships Marina etc this ship seemed small, but had the advantage of it was quicker to get to where you needed to go. The size also meant more movement in the windy conditions. The crew were good and very friendly and the food was excellent. The ship is due for renovation as it is getting tired but was still clean. The destinations were good especially Japan and the Great Wall of China. We were suprised by the lower temperaturesthan expected so beware when travelling in March in the China sea - coats were needed.
