We chose this trip because of the itinerary and high praise from our travel agent. All I can say is that the cruise was absolutely perfect. Check-in was simple and short. All the food areas are outstanding. The 4 special restaurants are ... Read more

Our Oceania Cruise was the first cruise that either I or my wife have ever taken, but we hope it won't be the last. Nearly everyone on our cruise were old hands at cruising; a majority having taken a half dozen if not double-digit tours ... Read more

The ship is the destination. Even though we’re back in the Caribbean for the umpteenth time, we’re on Oceania’s Riviera, which is new to us. It has 1200 and some guests and around 800 crew. In the past we have primarily ... Read more

We normally cruise Celebrity, and sometimes Princess, but decided to celebrate my wife's retirement by upgrading to a higher end line. We were not disappointed. Although overall service was excellent and the stateroom was beautiful, it ... Read more

We are mostly Silversea cruisers. Silversea was sold out so we tried Oceania. The ship is beautiful. Modern but not gaudy. Our cabin (penthouse) was very nice with a walkin closet. Similar to Silversea but more modern. Our butler was ... Read more

We chose Oceania because of the itinerary and the reviews I had read. From all reports, it is for "foodies". With that, I set my expectations pretty high and unfortunately I was disappointed. I have cruised on several lines ... Read more

Embarkation easy. The first 3 days went well if you excluded the very poor entertainment. I found the cabin very dusty and the windows were filthy. Service is good in the specialty restaurants but spotty in the MDR and worse in the bar ... Read more
