Oceania Cruises new look Nautica revealed
Oceania Cruises’ three R-Class ships, Regatta, Insignia, and Nautica have just completed a $50 million dollar transformation, the largest refurbishment programme in the company’s history.
All public rooms, suites, and staterooms will now feature elegant new furnishings and décor and many of the amenities and design elements on the line’s newest ships (Marina and Riviera), including the addition of Baristas, Oceania Cruises’ signature speciality coffee bar, and the state-of-the-art grill in the Terrace Café.
The refurbishment also included new tiling and pool deck furniture, new Steam and Changing Rooms in the Canyon Ranch Spa, a new mini-golf course on the Sports Deck and new shuffleboard courts and selection of deck games.
Join us on a photo tour of Nautica when she recently docked at Dover.

Family has always played an essential role in Tuscan cuisine, and Toscana epitomizes its importance. Many of the recipes used to create the dishes come from Oceania Cruises own Italian culinary staff, having been handed down from generation to generation. Even the sommeliers are from long lines of wine-producing families, so they know the intricacies of each vintage and can suggest the perfect accompaniment to your meal. Each course exemplifies the essence of Tuscan virtuosity and hails the cuisine’s inspired simplicity and keenly balanced natural flavors. The presentation on elegant, custom designed china is a masterpiece as well and further enhances your dining pleasure in this romantic 96-seat gastronomic temple.
