Riviera is Perfection!

Sail Date: August 2012
Destination: Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Embarkation: Istanbul

Just returned from Mediterranean cruise on new Riviera. Way beyond our expectations in each category, and our expectations were high. Elegantly designed ship, colors, furnishings, lighting of cabins and public rooms take your breath away. Chandeliers of Lalique crystal everywhere are awesome.
Food in each venue a true class above any previous cruise. Specialty restaurants each have a unique personality and are beyond "first class".
Even nightly buffet in casual restaurant offers lobster, steak, lamb chops every night. Main dining room is a white/gold masterpiece.
Service is impeccable in all areas. Staff helpful, professional, friendly.
Entertainment much better than prievious Oceania trips. Now several production shows per cruise.
Complimentary extras (specialty coffees, soft drinks etc.) are nice touch.
Concierge lounge a nice plus. Spa facility beautiful. Pool area a wonderful design.
It's all way more than good! Less

Cabin review: Riviera

Lovely cabin, beautiful decor. Lots of storage. Granite in supersized bathroom. Cabin towards back of ship keeps you closer to most restauant venues.
