The ship decor has a lot of character with beautiful furniture and mahogony walls and trim. Lovely marble and gorgeous rugs grace the whole ship. We enjoyed the peaceful spacious surroundings with not a lot of people around as ... Read more

This was our first cruise on Oceania. We chose this ship because of the itinerary, and for that reason it was excellent. At 70, we were probably about average in age, if not on the younger side - there were very few passengers under 50. ... Read more

Found all the ports interesting and accessible from the ship. Cartagena a small city was beautiful and interesting to stroll through right off the ship. Ditto Cadiz. Malaga was breathtaking. We took five excursions with Oceania -- all ... Read more

Days at sea were restful and wonderful. Food was bland and had little flavor. I found food on Riviera to be delicious last June. For example, the steak at Tuscan steakhouse was flavorful, like it was dry aged and came with gorngonzola ... Read more

Positive: - Food: if you’re a foodie, this is the cruise line for you. The ‘cafeteria’ type food served in the Terrace was average at best, and breakfasts are nothing special. Dinners, however, are first rate. ... Read more

1. The state room was nicely appointed and our state room attendant was very good. 2. We did not participate in any of the ship board activities so can not comment on entertainment. 3. We were satisfied with the quality of all ... Read more

This was our third time on Marina and fifth with O. Service and food slipping a bit since they were bought by Norwegian. Food very inconsistent even in each restaurant. Still good but a little less so. Great itineraries make it first ... Read more

This was our 6th cruise in the last 8 years. Three cruises have been on Celebrity and 3 on Oceania. First let me say that we have had good experiences on both. However, up until this last cruise I would have put Oceania in a clear ... Read more

This was our 18th cruise, having cruised aboard most of the major lines (Princess, RCCL,Holland America) and we found the Rivieria to be the most comfortable and relaxing ship we have been aboard. Our balcony cabin on the 8th deck had ... Read more

We chose this ship and cruise because of the itinerary - great combination of three days in Israel plus Greek Islands. Also, we are foodies and had heard the food was great, and finally, we do not like a super large ship or one that caters ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the convenience for us to depart and return to Miami, for Oceania's reputation for good food, and for the experience of cruising on a smaller ship than we had previously experienced. Embarkation at noon was ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the destination and our prior cruises with Oceana. While our cabin was good, our cabin attendant was usually no where to be found. The food was a disappointment, especially the 2 upscale restaurants. At ... Read more
