Great Ship: Riviera Cruise Review by Piperbill
Overall Member Rating
We enjoyed every one of the 14 days. The ship was not full and getting specialty restaurant reservations, deck chairs and space in the pool was never a problem. We liked Polo Grill the best and Jacques the least, but all of the dining venues are excellent. We actually enjoyed the Grand Dining Room the most. There were 3 lecturers, all of whom were very informative and entertaining. I'm a musician and I most enjoyed the string quartet from Poland. Their repertoire was amazing and the quality excellent. The evening entertainment was generally good. I attended two of More the song and dance big production performances wearing musician's earplugs (decibel reduction with no distortion). After that I skipped them. That's just a matter of taste I think, not a serious complaint. My wife found a group of knitters who got together in the commodious Horizon Lounge each morning. The food is great, the staterooms are comfortable, the crew is friendly and accommodating. Most of the passengers were repeat Oceania cruisers, so what's that tell you. Having heard from those who've cruised on other lines I think I'll stick with Oceania. Less
Cabin review: B4 Verandah Stateroom
We have been on the 7th deck near the bow on both our transatlantic cruises. It's a bit more rolling there and there's wave noise, but we weren't bothered by it. The balconies are twice as large for 7000 to 7009. The location is well down the passageway, away from elevators and noise.Read All Verandah Stateroom (B4) Reviews >>
