Oceania Nautica Review

Review of Oceania Nautica

The 2000-built (as "R Five") Oceania Nautica cruise ship is the fleet's third R-class liner, with sisterships Regatta,Insignia and Sirena (former Ocean Princess). Oceania ship Nautica was drydock-refurbished in 2020 (June) by the company's OceaniaNEXT fleet renovation project (2019-2020).

The vessel (IMO number 9200938) is currently Marshall Islands/France-flagged (MMSI 538001665) and registered in Majuro.

History - construction and ownership

Oceania Cruises is a US passenger shipping company and luxury travel brand owned by NCLH-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 RSSC-Regent are owned by NCLH - acquired at a 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.

Oceania Nautica cruise ship

The 700-passenger 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.

Decks and Cabins

Oceania Nautica staterooms (349 total, in 16 grades) include 62 Suites, 170 Balcony, 89 Oceanview (including 14 single-occupancy) and 28 Inside cabins. Most staterooms (66%) are Balcony and sized 175 ft2 / 16 m2. Most cabin balconies are smaller (sized 45 ft2 / 4 m2).

The largest accommodations are the Owners Suites (620 ft / 58 m2 plus 345 ft2 / 32 m2 terrace).

The boat has 11 decks, of which 9 are passenger-accessible and 5 with cabins.

Nautica guests take advantage of the flexibility of 4 open-seating dining venues. The Grand Dining Room serves Continental cuisine. it is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Alternative, reservations-required options are Toscana, which offers gourmet Italian food, and the steak house Polo Grill. The buffet restaurant Terraces serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It is transformed into "Tapas on the Terrace" at night for a relaxed atmosphere. All dining venues have bars, and there is no cover charge. In addition, a poolside grill offers hamburgers, sandwiches and salads at lunchtime. There is also a pizzeria in the buffet area. The observation lounge Horizons serves afternoon tea.

Oceania Nautica ship related cruise news

Oceania Nautica Wiki

Oceania Nautica cruise ship is the line's third vessel of the Renaissance/Regatta-class. Her sisters in the fleet are the Oceania ships Insignia, Regatta and Sirena (Ocean Princess). Regarding the marine vessel-class, Nautica is also related to the Azamara ships Azamara Journey, Azamara Quest, Azamara Onward (Pacific Princess), Azamara Pursuit (Adonia).

MS Nautica was ordered and operated as "R Five" by Renaissance Cruises in the period 2000-2003. 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".

The ship's namesake is STENA LINE's 1986-built cruiseferry Stena 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) while the boat was en route from Egypt to Oman (Safaga to Salah). The vessel was fired at eight times but outran the attack without any injuries or damage.

On September 2, 2014, NCLH-Norwegian purchased the company "Prestige Cruise Holdings" (owner of Oceania and RSSC-Regent Seven Seas) for USD 3,025 billion, thus becoming the official owner of all vessels in both fleets.

The Apollo Group company provides all Oceania ships with the entire onboard hotel product and services. This includes administration, food staff (preparation and serving), housekeeping staff, also the vessel's provisioning and crewing. Other cruise lines served by Apollo are Thomson UK (Marella Cruises) and RSSC-Regent.
