Riviera is a new and beautiful ship
Destination: Western Caribbean
Dining was the best part of the cruise! The main dining room is gorgeous and the four specialty restaurants served interesting, delicious food. The public spaces are comfortable - especially the library and Spa Deck. Service everywhere on the ship is superb.
There was not much in the way of night life on the Riviera once the evening show ended. The passengers were much older than we anticipated and everywhere you looked there were motorized scooters, canes and walkers. Several times my husband had to assist guests who were struggling with steps on excursions.
The ports of call on the Mayan Mystique were not the More greatest. Belize City is difficult to navigate with many detours and closed roads. The drive to the ruins at Altun Ha was not for those with back or neck problems, although once we were there the sights were very interesting.
There was not much to do in Santo Tomas which was really a very industrial shipping port.
In the other ports we made arrangement on-line prior to sailing. That turned out to be for the best. We had a great time in Cozumal with a private driver and in Costa Maya at a beautiful beach.
Overall, we had a lovely time and would sail on Oceania again but we would look for an itinerary that appealed to a slightly younger demographic. Less
