Ship Facts: Riviera Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Riviera Deck Plans
A nice and easy cruise

The ship was one of the best we have sailed on.Beautiful and not too big. 1230 passengers or around that figure. People of many nationalities on board, and all announcements in English. Public announcements were kept to a minimum.

Reviews previously have not been too happy with the entertainment, but we found it to be a very good mixture and suited us very well. Excellent viewing in the Riviera Lounge. The staff were very professional in all departments.

We particularly liked the library, and Baristas coffee area. We were aware before we embarked that excursions were expensive, but as we had visited most of the destinations previously, we were happy to do our own thing. Drinks priced, especialy wines were on the high priced side, but the $300 dollars on board credit more than covered the 18% service charge

Sharing a table in the restaurants for dinner gave us a chance to meet some really interesting guests. The choice to have a table for two was always available. Food is the Riviera's strength and the choices were superb. I could not pick a favourite dining venue, they were all brilliant!
