Having had a wonderful experience on the Marina on a recent South Pacific cruise we decided to do an east-bound transatlantic on Riviera, her sister ship, sailing from Miami on April 11 and arriving in Barcelona on April 25. This was ... Read more

This cruise was to see islands in French Polynesia and travel to Lima via Easter Island. I had wanted to go to Easter Island since college- fifty plus years. This seemed to be a great way to visit. The ship was to be there two days. It ... Read more

We are in our mid 60's and have sailed 7 times in last 7 years. After 2 cruises on Celebrity Millenium ships we decided to go upscale and try Oceania Marina in 2011. One month prior to sailing, we were offered and accepted a bargain ... Read more

This was our 17th cruise - 4th on Oceania. The food was very good for the most part and in perfect portions for multiple-course meals (with the exception of perhaps one overzealous cook who seemed to greatly overcook the fish fillets ... Read more

Very disappointed in this cruise. The ship is wonderful, the crew was very effective - if not the best I have ever seen, but I was very disappointed in being turned away from Bemuda due to a "norovirus" outbreak. No ... Read more

First, we have been on ten O cruises (over 30 total) so there are grounds for a fair comparison and constructive criticism. The cruise as a whole was disappointing and in many respects discouraging. As long-time fans of Oceania, we ... Read more

Having cruised many lines previously but not Oceania, we eagerly looked forward to our first, which was the transatlantic cruise from Barcelona to Miami. While it was probably the worst cruise I've ever been on, I will endeavor to state ... Read more

Just returned from the 11/18 Transatlantic sailing onboard the Riviera. The ship is beautiful, the crew was attentive, and to food was good. Warning: If you are an O cheerleader and don’t want to read anything negative about O, ... Read more

We just returned from our 16 day Crossing cruise. We have been on 2 other Oceania cruises which I thoroughly enjoyed. Those 2 cruises were on the smaller ships, Regatta and Nautica. On the smaller ships we had PH staterooms and they ... 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

We sailed the Riviera on a Trans Atlantic cruise beginning April 1 from Miami. From the time we entered the building to register we knew Oceania was going to get the Royal Treatment. Not only was everything handled with us being ... Read more

Sailed April 2015
Background: For about 10 years we sailed exclusively with Regent. Then, after a not-so-great experience on a trans-Atlantic crossing in 2012 we decided to try Oceania. We were so delighted with our first cruise on Riviera (in an ... Read more

Overall this was a most enjoyable cruise. Our(my wife and I) criteria for judging the cruise:- Embarcation. In this case it was a bit disjointed. So far our trips with other lines meant the suitcases were taken from the bus/coach and the ... Read more

In April my husband and I sailed on the beautiful Riviera. This was our first Trans Atlantic and our first Oceania cruise. Since we had previously taken a port intensive cruise we were uncertain what we would do with all of the sea days. ... Read more

My husband and I chose this cruise to meet two requirements– he wanted to go to Rio and I wanted to go on a cruise! Based on that requirement and the time we were able to go, only Oceania and Regent had itineraries that worked (and ... Read more

Embarkation and disembarcation. Due to the time I had to leave my hotel and other factors, I arrived at the pier in New York shortly after embarkation began. I waited in line 45 minutes to get to check-in. From there the process went ... Read more

Let me get it off my chest first: I absolutely hated, detested and loathed the 24/7 recorded "music" blaring forth on the lido deck and, now, on RIVIERA, even from under the plastic rocks on the putting green. What can Oceania be thinking? ... Read more

Having done a TA on the Marina in March 2012 we decided to try the inaugural crossing of the Riviera in Nov 2012. I guess we liked it because we've already booked for a 10-day cruise on the Riviera in March and another TA in Nov 2013. ... Read more
