Review of Oceania Nautica
Launched in 2000 as R Five, Oceania Nautica cruise ship is company's third R-class liner, with sisterships Regatta,Insignia and Sirena (former Ocean Princess). Oceania ship Nautica will be drydock refurbished in 2020 (June) by company's new OceaniaNEXT fleet renovation project (2019-2020).
History - construction and ownership
Oceania Cruises is a US company and brand owned by NCL Norwegian (shipowner), Between April 2007 and September 2014, the company (as part of "Prestige Cruise Holdings") was owned by Apollo Management LP - one of the world's largest private investment equity funds. Since September 2014, Oceania and the sister company Regent Seven Seas Cruises are owned by NCL, acquired at the total cost of USD 3 billion. Oceania ships offer luxury cruises with relatively shorter itineraries, as well as Around The World voyages up to 180 days in length.
The 30,277-ton, 824-passenger cruise ship Nautica keeps the strategy of Oceania Cruises to create an atmosphere far more remindful of an English country house hotel, not to a cruise vessel. There is an appropriate range of amenities, yet the ambience is comfortable and intimate. The decor is quite similar fleetwide, and all ships feature nice dining venues, Mandara Spa and a cyber lab. Nautica's crew members routinely rotate between the 3 vessels, so a returning cruiser on any of them is probably to recognize friendly faces.
Cruise itinerary program
Nautica itinerary program is based on luxury cruises to exotic destinations in Asia with departures from Singapore, Thailand and China, European voyages in the Mediterranean and Baltic, South Africa and Suez Canal repositioning transits.
Oceania Nautica has a total of 351 cabins (of which 63 Suite, 171 Balcony, 28 Inside rooms) in 16 grades. Most Nautica staterooms (66%) are 175-sq. foot Balcony rooms. The largest aboard Nautica is the Owner’s Suite (735 ft2).

After the Renaissance line's bankruptcy, Royal Caribbean (RCCL) bought the ship and transferred her to Pullmantur Cruises fleet (2004-2005). In 2005, after a major refurbishment, she was transferred to Oceania under her current name "ms Nautica".
Making the news as one of the world's most strange cruise ship accidents ever, in 2008 (Nov 30) the Oceania ship Nautica was attacked by Somalian pirates. It happened in the Gulf of Aden (Arabian Sea) en route from Safaga, Egypt to Salah, Oman. The ship was fired eight times but outran the attack without any injuries or damage.
