Just got home from our Oceania cruise on the Nautica- Black Sea. The trip surpassed my expectations...Thank you again for your assistance. Your advice on everything, from air arrangements to shore excursions and even choice of cabins was spot on.
Dining on the Oceania Nautica is about choices and never a charge.
Topped with a dramatic, domed ceiling that is adorned with a hand-painted fresco, the Grand Dining Room is reminiscent of a classic European, 5-star hotel restaurant. The “always eager to please” wait staff serves six courses of American-inspired Continental cuisine atop elegantly appointed tables set with Villeroy & Boch china and European crystal. No reservations are required. For large parties, it is recommended to speak to the Maître D’ as tables may be limited.
The finest cuts of dry-aged prime beef, chops and fresh seafood are the signature items of Polo Grill. Seating just 96 guests, this classic steakhouse features floor-to-ceiling windows affording views of passing seascapes and is warmly decorated with dark woods and elegant furnishings. Reservations are required due to the limited capacity. There is no additional charge.
Enjoy the romantic, whimsical ambiance of this intimate, 90-seat restaurant that captures the flair and essence of Tuscany. The savory gourmet cuisine reflects the very best of Italy in dishes representative of its many regions. Nearly every table is adjacent to floor-to-ceiling windows for soaring views of sea and sky. Reservations are required due to limited capacity. There is no additional charge.
Each evening, on the Nautica, the alfresco dining area of the Terrace Cafe becomes Tapas on the Terrace with a sumptuous buffet. Here you will enjoy dining under the stars, specialty cocktails and a menu of authentic tapas, paellas and other flavorful regional specialties from Spain and the surrounding Mediterranean. The buffet offers a bountiful selection of traditional favorites including carefully prepared entrees, salads, soups, and a carvery with tantalizing desserts to finish.
After a day of enriching shore excursions ashore or relaxing activities onboard, you may dine in the privacy of your suite or stateroom. An extensive Room Service menu is available round the clock. For those guests in Owner’s, Vista and Penthouse Suites, the Oceania Nautica’s Butler Service allows guests to enjoy a course-by-course dining experience, with cuisine selections from the menu of the Grand Dining Room. Enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner on your private veranda, as you take in spectacular seascapes.
With a dignified, almost stately ambiance, the Grand Dining Room is comfortable for breakfast and lunch. Consider a fluffy made-to-order omelette for breakfast or a wonderful lunch of pan-seared Sole. Regardless of the occasion, seating is always open.
One of cruising’s most time-honored traditions, Afternoon Tea begins promptly at 4:00 each day, when the pastry chefs take center stage with a colorful collection of tea sandwiches, scones and other confectionary masterpieces fit for royalty. The soothing strains of classical music round out a very elegant and relaxing afternoon.
It’s hard to resist the sumptuous, ever changing breakfast and lunch buffets in this light-filled, informal buffet restaurant. You may dine indoors or outdoors since the Café opens onto both the teak-lined pool deck or aft onto the Terrace, where the tantalizing sea breeze is sure to stir your appetite.
For the ultimate in casual poolside dining, try Waves. Serving a mouthwatering selection of grilled specialties, traditional barbecue fare plus salads & sandwiches and fresh home-made ice cream, it’s sure to be one of your favorite lunch spots.
