Oceania offered a trip to ports which interested us, with a reputation for fine service. In most aspects, we were very satisfied. The cabin was commodious and well furnished, with a full bed, love seat, desk, two large closets, and a ... Read more

Very nice cruiseship, a little on the small side, but nice. Cabin (9 floor) with veranda was also nice, welcoming champagne (and yes it was champagne, not sparkling wine). 3 excursions was included in the price. Lots of speciality ... Read more

We chose the cruise, as we always do, because of the itinerary and because we love Oceania's larger ships with the 4 specialty restaurants and larger bathrooms. Oceania included 6 free excursions and though we have rarely taken ship ... Read more

We have previously cruised with Oceania in October of 2012 and the ship was not able to get into the Amalfi Coast or Taromina due to rough waters. We booked this cruise in June hoping that we would be able to see the Amalfi Coast. This ... Read more

This was our second Oceania cruise, having sailed on the Marina on a Baltic cruise last year. The Riviera is a carbon copy of the Marina in floor plan and every bit as beautiful. We chose cabin 9050 (which is the A3 Concierge level) and it ... Read more

We had a very enjoyable time on the Riviera ship. First class cabin service and excellent food. We felt the service in the dining rooms was a bit rushed -- within a couple of minutes of being seated they were wanting to take your order ... Read more

It was a package offered by the Purdue Alumni. Also on the cruise were groups from Central Michigan University, and the Naval Academy. We spent a three day pre-cruise tour of Rome and we are very glad we did. It is an amazing city to ... Read more

"The Finest Cuisine at Sea"? Well, there's the Aral Sea. The menu read, "Duck a la Orange." How Oceania could then offer up slender morsels of duck breast, with a side sauce, is a mystery; unless, perhaps, the chef ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the unique seven day point to point itinerary, from Barcelona to Rome. We are still working and like to spend some of our vacation time exploring on land, so we ended our trip exploring some areas in Italy ... Read more

Its an excellent value for the money compared to may upscale cruises. Everything first rate and staff could not do enough. Some of the excursions just okay but still fantastic. I'd rather they gave less excursions but better ones! The ... Read more

This is a cruise for more discerning foodies who want quality, service and luxury and don’t want to be herded along with thousands of other passengers on a monster ship. After reading other reviews below, two alarm bells rang in ... Read more

We were somewhat sceptical taking this cruise, due to an unpleasant experience on another cruise line. Friends sailed with Oceania about two years ago and assured us we would enjoy it. Oceania did not disappoint. The food is great, and ... Read more

Just returned last night from a 12 night Mediterranean cruise on the Riviera. Overall the cruise was excellent. Ports of call were a great variety and a couple were hidden gems that I would never have considered visiting previously. ... Read more

We had a Penthouse Balcony Suite and the closet space and bathroom space were excellent. The Butler service was a nice perk, but we were somewhat disappointed that the laundry pressing was very limited to 3 garments each. We would also ... Read more

The Riviera cruise (Oceania) was very satisfying on a number of levels, because of what they call ‘enrichment experiences’. On a culinary level, there is a choice between speciality restaurants serving some exceptional food ... Read more

This cruise was an extension offer from Oceania. We added it to a Miami to Athens booking and received credits on airfare not needed for a back-to-back cruise. This also gave us an opportunity to do a day tour in Greece during the ... Read more

I was interested in the ports especially Istanbul and was very disappointed when they changed Istanbul as the final destination to Athens. It was for security reasons so really can't blame Oceania. The cruise was real good but decided ... Read more
