7-8 Walvis Bay - Overnight onboard AM PM
9-10 At Sea
11 Port Elizabeth
Port Elizabeth
Known alternatively as ‘The Friendly City’ or simply as ‘P.E.’, Port Elizabeth lines up some of the most gorgeous sandy beaches along South Africa’s Eastern Cape. For a lazy day tucking your toes into the sand, the pick of the beaches include King’s, Hobie, Humewood and Pollock. Around the city, you’ll discover lovely manicured expanses, be it in St George’s Park, home to the cricket ground, or in Settler’s Park with its profusion of exotic plants and birds.
PM PM
12 East London AM PM
13 Durban
Durban
Three-wheeled Tuk Tuk open cabs ply the Golden Mile, Durban’s palm-lined promenade. Restaurants and oriental bazaars like the Victoria Street Market are fragrant with spice and incense, all reminders that these shores look out over the Indian Ocean and exotic Asian destinations beyond. Follow the arts and crafts trail, go golfing or fishing, visit a crocodile farm or head inland to the game reserves of KwaZulu Natal, veldts that lead the eye to the craggy peaks of the Drakensberg Mountains.
AM PM
14 Richards Bay AM PM
15 Maputo
Maputo
Five hundred years of Portuguese rule have left their mark on Mozambique’s capital while the scars of civil war 30 years ago thankfully go on healing. Street signs around Maputo still celebrate names like Mao, Marx and Lenin but the free market economy is gathering pace. Hotels such as the elegant Polana are back to their colonial best, street cafés serve up spicy peri-peri platters, bustling markets trade spectacular batiks and hand-crafted drums while the languid surf goes on teasing the sands of the Baia’s pristine beaches.
AM PM
16-17 At Sea
18 Cape Town - Overnight onboard PM
19 Cape Town

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.
