This was our first cruise on Oceania and we were looking forward to it greatly. We have taken 20 previous cruises, mostly with Celebrity and Azamara, though with all the other major lines except Norwegian as well. We receive about 3 pieces ... Read more

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

Its an excellent value for the money compared to may upscale cruises. Everything first rate and staff could not do enough. Some of the excursions just okay but still fantastic. I'd rather they gave less excursions but better ones! The ... Read more

This is a cruise for more discerning foodies who want quality, service and luxury and don’t want to be herded along with thousands of other passengers on a monster ship. After reading other reviews below, two alarm bells rang in ... Read more

Inaugural cruise of Sirena and we sailed on Marina last year. The service on arrival was excellent although it was obvious much needed to be finished, they were still painting sections when we left 14 dats later. Our bed head arrived after ... Read more

We chose Oceania because of the itinerary. We have never been to the South Pacific or Easter Island before. With only about 800 passengers aboard, embarkation was swift. We were early so we didn't have access to our cabin but there ... Read more

Our friends recommended we take this trip. We did the 10 day trip around the Tahitian Islands aboard the Marina. We upgraded to a Penthouse Room and we did fully enjoy the experience of our own butler and the executive lounge. The ... Read more

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

We went on a seven night cruise aboard the Riviera stopping in Key West, Trujillo (Honduras), Belize City (Belize), and Cozumel (Mexico). This was our first cruise ever (as a child I had once done an Atlantic crossing, but this was back in ... Read more

The change in management of the cruise line could not be more evident. This was our second time on Riviera in a penthouse suite. We did not expect there to be a difference in the experience as we were completely happy the last time(2014). ... Read more

We embarked on our honeymoon cruise after being told this cruise would have a higher percentage of older people and no kids. We thought this sounded great. We signed up for prepaid gratuities, free airfare from LA, onboard credit, a $750 ... Read more

Sailed 10 day cruise from Rio to Buenos Aries. We haved sailed on multiple lines before but Oceania has my vote as "favorite." Ship is smaller than other ships we have sailed with about 1200 passengers, is very low key and very ... 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

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

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

We chose this cruise after a lot of research into several types of cruises and locations in Europe. After a booking error with another line and bait and switch pricing, we went with the competitor: Oceania. We chose this ship because not ... Read more
