We chose this cruise because we wanted to go in a less crowded ship. Before, we've sailed in larger ships of about 2500 passengers. We really enjoyed less people aboard, more tranquility. Athens is really a very interesting place to ... Read more

This cruise was an extension offer from Oceania. We added it to a Miami to Athens booking and received credits on airfare not needed for a back-to-back cruise. This also gave us an opportunity to do a day tour in Greece during the ... Read more

Booked the Oceania Insignia for its historical Black Sea ports which were cancelled due to crisis in the Ukraine. Although this was not the cruise lines fault they failed to provide any consideration to make up for the missed ports. We ... Read more

Although the cancellation of 3 ports was unavoidable, the delayed timing was later than was needed to cancel without a large loss. The included air far gave us such bad connections that we had to pay $175/pp deviation & another $100/pp ... Read more

We joined the Riviera at Pireaus on the 06-Aug and couldn't wait to get on board, and as we had a concierge level state room then our embarkation was rapid. Although there weren't that many people at the check-in desks at noon. Once ... Read more

Sacred Sanctuaries, August 2013. Embarkation etc. The cruise started in Piraeus, which shares the dingy, seedy atmosphere of many ports. That said, it is worth coming earlier if you want to visit any of the closer islands on a day-trip. ... Read more
