With the intimacy of a luxury ship but the amenities of a larger vessel, the Oceania Nautica is a true premium-category cruise ship. This means Nautica can offer a personalized level of service without compromising on amenities such as a pool, a variety of specialty restaurants, and a full-sized fitness center and spa. The elegant décor and friendly service staff create a warm, welcoming environment, meaning passengers will quickly feel at home onboard.
With its unique ports of call and creative itineraries, the Oceania Nautica is great for both experienced passengers looking for something new and first-time cruisers seeking a one-of-a-kind experience. An increasing number of overnight stays at ports of call and longer cruise lengths in general make it great for the adventurous traveler. Without an overabundance of entertainment and activities onboard, Nautica is perfect for passengers looking for a serene vacation and travelers seeking unique destinations. Foodies are guaranteed to have a great time on board as well – the highlight of any Oceania cruise is the dining.
Refurbished in 2014, the staterooms on the Oceania Nautica are comfortable, elegant, and well-designed. The luxurious mattresses with gel mattress toppers and high thread count sheets are sure to guarantee a peaceful night’s sleep. The pastel color palette accented by dark blue and brown tones give the rooms a timeless, sophisticated feel. And the bath amenities will make you feel pampered even without booking a spa package: Thick, fluffy towels, quality Bulgari soap and a complimentary shower camp come standard in every bathroom. Suites also come with a full-sized bathtub in the bathroom. Suite-level passengers can also enjoy 24-hour butler service, in-room dining, and an expansive, 190-square-foot balcony.
Dining & Gastronomy
Special to Oceania cruises, dining in the specialty restaurants comes at no extra charge. That means there is no excuse not to try everything once. From classic French and Italian cuisine, to flavorful Asian fusion, to healthy spa fare, there’s something to appeal to everyone. Decadent desserts are served after dinner as well as every afternoon during high tea. In the mood for a buttery pastry or a fruit sorbet? How about a cheese plate paired with French wines by an expert sommelier? All this and more are available at the different restaurants onboard the Nautica. And of course, what ship would be complete without a casual poolside grill? At the Waves Grill, expect a gourmet twist on barbecue classics. In addition to classic beef burgers and salted French fries, you’ll also find fine fish or veggie burgers, fresh salad and fruit, and gourmet truffle fries. Not to be confused with the Polo Grill – this sit-down steakhouse offers seafood, shellfish, and choice cuts of beef. Whatever your preference, there is a Nautica menu right for you.
Entertainment and Activities
Activities onboard the Oceania Nautica cater to its passenger base of mature, well-heeled adults. Regularly schedule entertainment includes live music acts, dance productions, and movie screenings in the ship’s theater, and sea days are also interspersed with educational lectures, art workshops and sports competitions, and a must-see cooking demonstration by the ship’s chef. A variety of bars and lounges provide ample places to relax and enjoy a glass of wine or an after-dinner cocktail, and the aptly-named Martinis bar features live piano music most nights.
Daytime dress on the Nautica is country club casual, with resort wear, Hawaiian shirts and flowy skirts not uncommon. Evening dining tends to be a bit more elegant, with women in slacks and blouses and men in collared shirts at the sit-down restaurants, though casual wear is still allowed at the buffet. There are no Formal Nights on Oceania cruises.
