Nautica: Overview
Oceania Cruise Line Review

Nautica was the third ship to originally join Oceania’s fleet, which also includes Regatta, Insignia, the new Marina and the soon to come Riviera.  Nautica has the same consistent theme of the Regatta and Insignia.  It was originally built in 1998 and was recently upgraded during 2011.  Like its sister ships, the reviews and satisfaction to cruise on this ship are always very high.  The price for the experience is the right fit on this mid-sized vessel.  It holds a maximum of 684 guests with an outstanding 1.71 guest to 1 crew member ratio, giving you the pleasure of always being close to someone that can help you in any way.

The Nautica will surely meet and exceed your expectations with its common areas and multiple restaurants that serve some of the freshest food in the industry.  When not in a port while on your 10-day or longer cruise, you will find satisfaction with the many activities that are offered.  When in port, you have the opportunity for shore excursions offered by Oceania for an extra fee.  The staterooms have been upgraded and 70% of them have their own private verandas.  All of this combined with the price will put a smile on you face.

Nautica: Passengers

The average age of passengers on board the ship starts around 50 and older.  Majority of the guests come from the U.S. or the U.K. and have sailed taken a cruise before.

Nautica: Dress Code
Oceania Cruise Line Review

The dress code for day to day activities on board is country club or resort casual.  When it is time to go to dinner, it switches to elegant casual with the women wearing a skirt or dress and the men wearing a blazer (a tie is not necessary).  Nautica doesn’t have a formal night at all during the cruise.

Nautica: Gratuity
Oceania Cruise line Review

A rate of $12.50 per person, per day will be automatically charged to your room.  If you have one of the higher staterooms (Penthouse, Vista or Owner’s suite) will have an additional $4 per person, per day for the butler services.  You are able to tip more at your discretion.  If you got room service, depending on the item, a tip of $1 to $5 should be given.
