We cruised on the Riviera from 19 April through 29 April for the Sacred Sanctuaries itinerary. We cruised on other lines in the past, but decided to try Oceania for the stop in Israel and the particular stateroom that we selected. We ... Read more

We chose this ship and cruise because of the itinerary - great combination of three days in Israel plus Greek Islands. Also, we are foodies and had heard the food was great, and finally, we do not like a super large ship or one that caters ... Read more

We recently completed the transatlantic cruise on Riviera from Miami to Barcelona. The boarding process was set up in a temporary tent, though not as professional a set up, the staff got the job done, quickly and efficiently. The ship ... Read more

I chose to do a transatlantic cruise on the Riviera because it has a Resident Artist. The program surpassed my expectations. Noel Suarez is a masterful artist and teacher . Being in the art class was a major investment of time but worth ... Read more

First, this is my take, your mileage will vary and of course, even the exact same cruise a week later could be different let alone a different cruise on the same ship or the same line. We have been on ships from the largest to the ... Read more

This was the largest ship we have been on. We have only cruised on Seadream, Silversea, Seabourn & Windstar. The dates and itinerary suited us plus many favourable reviews. The standout things for us were the food (aside from Red ... Read more

Recently returned from a Caribbean cruise on Oceania's Riviera. We chose Oceania mainly on the basis of its reputation for food and Riviera because of the relatively small size (about 1250 passengers). We had a stateroom with veranda. We ... 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
