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

We wanted to go through the Panama Canal with a different line to have a variety of ports and experiences. I had heard good reviews of Oceania. We thought it would be a nice change. The first impression was of a classy lounge, dining ... Read more

I’m going to focus on just a few issues and explain our perspective, as that may help you decide how relevant our opinions are to you. This is by far the biggest ship we’ve ever cruised on. Our experience has been with ... Read more

My husband and I have cruised many, many times on different cruise lines. This was our first Oceania cruise and chose this particular cruise because the Riviera has a good reputation and this 17 Day cruise spent 3 days in Israel - in ... Read more

We cruised on the Riviera from 19 April through 29 April for the Sacred Sanctuaries itinerary. We cruised on other lines in the past, but decided to try Oceania for the stop in Israel and the particular stateroom that we selected. We ... Read more

I chose for the itinerary and no-charge specialty restaurants. I travel solo and like the choice of several restaurants where I can eat alone or join others. The Penthouse on Marina is very roomy, and you can order dinner in from any of ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it had an interesting itinerary (Cape Verde, Dakar, St. Barts etc) for a transatlantic crossing, and because as a TA it was very cost effective on a per-day basis compared to some other O cruises. This was ... Read more

Joined relatives due to it's stop in Cuba and the chance to stop in Routan and Belize. We found the ship to be immaculate and wonderfully decorated, a very luxurious environment. The entertainment was ok, we found the singer Paul Edison to ... Read more

We chose this cruise because it was Oceania, and because of its 2 day stay in Cuba. Overall we were not disappointed. It was our fourth Oceania trip, the first on Marina - though we have cruised on Riviera before, her sister ship. The ... Read more

We recently completed the transatlantic cruise on Riviera from Miami to Barcelona. The boarding process was set up in a temporary tent, though not as professional a set up, the staff got the job done, quickly and efficiently. The ship ... Read more

I chose to do a transatlantic cruise on the Riviera because it has a Resident Artist. The program surpassed my expectations. Noel Suarez is a masterful artist and teacher . Being in the art class was a major investment of time but worth ... Read more

This was our first cruise on Oceania, the 12 day ‘Pure Polynesia’ on Sirena. We tend to be land based travellers, but some places are just better by ship. Sirena is a smaller ship, which we prefer. The ship, refurbished in ... Read more

We have friends who love Oceania, and Oceania was enthusiastically promoted by our TA. We are trying all the lines that do World Cruises in the next 12 months so this is one. We were late getting in to rooms, until 5:45 pm, due to a Coast ... Read more

Our 7th cruise with Oceania, first on Marina, so we really like the offer. First cruise since the Norwegian take over. Enjoyable cruise overall, although very late embarkation and hygiene 'lockdown' for the first couple of days, coupled ... Read more

This was our first Oceania cruise- and we're glad we did! I have been hearing about how great Oceania was from friends for several years, but we have become quite partial to our familiar Celebrity. We've also cruised with Seabourne, and ... Read more

The itinerary was a main reason for taking this cruise. The staff and food are exceptional. My only complaint is the size and layout of the cabins. We are in a concierge cabin and it's too small. The bathroom is just okay with a ... Read more

We prefer slightly smaller ships but in the same or better class. This was our first exposure to Oceania and we were comparing this experience to Seabourn. The ship was very nice and the Penthouse Suite was just a bit larger than the ... Read more

We enjoy the sea days on repositioning cruises, and this 14-day Oceania Riviera voyage from Barcelona to Miami gave us five in a row, from Madeira to Bermuda. The meals were excellent, and the service exceptional. The penthouse suite ... Read more
