Nautica

Cruise ship Nautica in Bergen, Norway; Oceania Cruises

Making her one-and-only visit to Bergen in 2017 today was Oceania Cruises' Nautica.

Originally entering service in 2000 as R Five (one of eight R-Class ships built for the now-defunct Renaissance Cruises) she sailed brifely for Pullmantur Cruises from 2002-2004, before being acquired by Oceania Cruises and joining their fleet as Nautica the folloing year.

Regular readers will remember our post about Nautica's sister ship Pacific Princess last month, which provides a bit of extra information about the scattering of several of these R-Class ships throughout the industry.

Nautica has a length of 181m, a gross tonnage of 30,277 and can accommodate up to 824 passengers, with a crew of around 325.

The following photos show Nautica alongside at Skolten (on what I call the 'wrong side' of the terminal building; much of her hull and superstrucutre is obscured). Unfortunately I am unable to make it to her departure later this evening.

Also in port today was Costa Favolosa.
