This was our second cruise on the Riviera and we were so looking forward to the food, playing tennis, golf and croquet on the forward sports deck and taking art and culinary classes when we were at sea. We also had high expectations for ... Read more

This was our third cruise with Oceania, first on Riveria (probably our last), second with Marina. We were very excited about this cruise because the ports of call were different from any we had taken in the past, especially Aruba. Lo and ... Read more

The ship is in excellent shape now that it has aged a bit. The cabins seem smaller than the 242 sq. feet advertised. Oceania is now being cheap with soap and shampoo--not exactly what you expect from a luxury cruise. Other than that, ... Read more

We did the Beijing to Hong Kong cruise. Absolute chaos at the start when our ship could not dock in Tianjin and some 600 passengers had arrived at the port. There was no one from the shipping company or the port authority who could tell us ... Read more

This was our second experience on Oceania, the first being the Riviera in the Med. The ship sponsored shore excursions as noted in previous comments were really limited coach tours of the countryside. One described as an extraordinary rail ... Read more

This was our fourth Oceania cruise and we have become accustomed to the high standard of service and food. One disadvantage of going ashore in a tender/life boat is that high waves will keep you onboard. That happened on one stop in ... Read more
