This reviewer and his wife are seasoned cruisers. This was our first time with Oceania. We are in our early 60's. The Staff was incredible, faced with potentially overwhelming demands on the staff's times as the entire ship was treated ... Read more

We recently returned from a 10 night eastern Caribbean cruise on Oceania Riviera. This was a make up cruise from last year's disaster on the Insignia ship where an engine exploded. This ship was so much better (and not just because it ... Read more

Sailed November 2015
We sailed on the Oceania Regatta out of Miami for the Western Carribean. While we had been to several of these ports before, a few were new to us (Costa Maya, Belize, Roatan). We like the smaller, R-class ships because there are fewer ... Read more

Our first experience and we could not be more pleased! The ship was spectacular, the service was outstanding and the amenities were the top of the line. The food was more than expected, and we are from New Orleans, in fact it was very ... Read more

I did so much research in preparation for this cruise so wanted to add detail to help others who are considering Oceana Marina. Overall, I think the trick is to work around the weaknesses of this cruise to get the best experience but for ... Read more

We joined the ship in Istanbul. Embarkation was quick and smooth. Don't expect any kind of welcome in board; no senior staff or welcome drink. The ship is beautiful and the service and house staff really do a great job. Senior staff ... Read more

Just got back from one of the finest cruises I have ever taken...and glanced at the prior reviews. Were they on the same ship because what I and others experienced was the exact opposite. In some 40 years of cursing the world from ... Read more

to be absolutely clear: the Ship is in perfect condition, cabins are well spaced and very well equiped even with marble bathrooms. Teak Deck wherever you go. Food is outstanding (IMHO better than Azamara or Celebrity) and Specialty ... Read more

Don't do this in the summer. We were hit with temperatures in the upper 90s and higher, with humidity around 100-percent much of the time. Other than that, and the chairs scraping noise from the grill above our stateroom (see cabin ... Read more

Drink package -- Offered at $60 per person per day -- We did not buy the package and found buying wine and drinks on an a la carte basis was more economical. We also had a wider selection of wines by the bottle than that offered by the ... Read more

My husband and I have cruised many times. The Marina is a great ship with lovely decor and for our recent 2 week cruise, we had the best staff and crew. The entertainment was the best I've seen on a cruise ship, the food was great and we ... Read more

This was our first cruise, so we had nothing to compare. However, we did our research and chose Oceania because of the great ratings. The Riviera is certainly a beautiful new ship, and our amenities were excellent in our Concierge Suite. ... Read more

First time cruiser on Oceania. Ship was beautiful, accommodations very nice. Did not go for the concierge level, glad we did not...no real benefit, as you are not on the ship that much and we booked our own excursions prior to boarding. ... Read more

My husband and I sailed on Oceania's 1,200 passenger ship, The Riviera, from Barcelona to Rome for 10 days in late May 2015. It was our first cruise ever and it was utterly grand in every way. In retrospect we started right at the top! ... Read more

We sailed Oceania's “River Routes and Channel Crossings” aboard Marina from Montreal to Southampton in May and June. In some ways we had a fine trip, but Oceania fell well short of excellence. Checking in, and departing, took ... Read more

Riviera, Miami-Barcelona, April 1-15, 2015 We have been looking for a cruise “home” for much of the past decade, and we think we have found it with Oceania. It is an elusive mix of ambience and personality (staff and ... Read more
