Ship Facts: Riviera Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Riviera Deck Plans
Leave extra days prior to and after your cruise

Shipboard food was excellent. We tried all 4 of the specialty restaurants, as well as the main dining main dining, and Terrace room. Service there was all very good with a high number of waiters, busboys who knew their stuff.

Ports were pretty much one a day, with the exception of one day at sea. Ship expeditions were good, but pricey for a 50 passenger busload. Changing expedition reservations was possible after the 3 day deadline, but you couldn't get your original expedition money back under 3 days. Would liked to have been in many ports for two days t experience more, but this was just a sampling of what one could come back for on a land based trip later. Although we arrived early on the morning of embarkation, the ship had a bus gives us a nice drive through a lot of Lisbon so we could see it on a quiet Sunday morning. That way we didn't have to wait so long to board.

We never felt there were 1250 passengers onboard. Hardly saw anyone in our 7th floor corridor.

Onboard entertainment was pleasant, but not spectacular.

The B veranda cabin had plenty of storage for 10 days. No noise problems. Shower steam cleared quickly. Room service arrived on time, with a phone call prior to the door knock

The front desk staff and the concierge were very professional in dealing with several issues we had to resolve.

They stored our larger suitcases so we wouldn't have to see them.
