Nautica Cruise Review by tatugrl
- Sail Date: February 2017
- Destination: Asia
- Cabin Type: Veranda Stateroom
Our room was always spotless and our stewardess and her assistant went out of their way to help us with anything needed. The drink prices are outrageous, what you would expect from a nice restaurant in NYC. We all bought the premium beverage package and it really worked for us. The wines by the bottle are not included, but we found the selections by the glass to be good. We did not go to any of the shows, as that is really not our "cup of tea". Speaking of tea, the high tea offered in horizons was always lovely.
We also did all of our own private excursions, which was a much better deal. After experiencing the excursions on the Insignia, I was not looking forward to being packed like cattle onto a bus and finding it hard to hear the guide at the back of the group. The service was almost flawless, they seemed a bit understaffed on this trip and their were a few hiccups at dinner some evenings.
I am not a crazy perfectionist and understand that everything can not be perfect all of the time. Having said this, any problems that we had were rectified immediately. All of the crew was very personable, remembered your name, what you liked to drink, your favorite dishes, etc. Will cruise with Oceania again!

Bangkok (Laem Chabang)We were not docked at Laem Chabang which is 1 1/2 hours outside of Bangkok. Because the boat is smaller we were docked in Bangkok on the river. The port is a working port with no facilities, however I woill give up facilities any day to be closer to the city.View All 212 Bangkok (Laem Chabang) Cruise Port Reviews

HanoiWe did not want to spend 7 hours on a bus or in a mini-van to visit Hanoi. We spent two wonderful days privately cruising Ha Long bay and Lan Ha bay at Cat ba island with Sails of Indochina.View All 60 Hanoi Cruise Port Reviews

SihanoukvilleNot a lot to do here. Small, poor fishing village with nice beaches, and the only deep-water port in Cambodia. Took a great full-day private tour with Sihanouk Ville seaside tours.View All 56 Sihanoukville Cruise Port Reviews
