We were somewhat sceptical taking this cruise, due to an unpleasant experience on another cruise line. Friends sailed with Oceania about two years ago and assured us we would enjoy it. Oceania did not disappoint. The food is great, and ... Read more

Just returned last night from a 12 night Mediterranean cruise on the Riviera. Overall the cruise was excellent. Ports of call were a great variety and a couple were hidden gems that I would never have considered visiting previously. ... Read more

This was our second cruise on Oceania, sixteenth in total. We loved the ship. The Riviera is beautiful, almost new, and rides like a dream. We took advantage of a summer promotion to book a penthouse suite at a veranda minisuite price. ... Read more

Below the neck line, creature comforts are good. The cabin was spacious, well furnished and with an excellent bathroom, all extremely comfortable. The food was also some of the best cruise food we have experienced; there is a main ... Read more

We have done many cruises but this was our first experience on Oceania. We had heard good things about the cruise line and the ship so were really looking to it even though we had been to most of the ports of call before. It was a real ... Read more

Advice - do not have a suite on deck 11, ours, 11031, was under the smoking area and lounger area and at night there was constant noise from the late night smokers and deck hands moving the loungers. Deck 11 suites also have a big overhang ... Read more

We arrived a couple of days early to Venice which was unbearably hot. The day or the cruise we took a private water taxi to the port. At the port things were very disorganized and the heat made it more difficult. There were no specific ... Read more

To be fair, Oceania does some things very well. The ship was clean and well appointed. The crew was courteous and efficient. And the food was outstanding. But the thing that spoiled our cruise experience was their outrageous price gouging ... Read more

This is a wonderful ship with a great ports of call. My question is "why so expensive?" The cabins are almost identical to Celebrity or Holland American new builds. This is a foodies cruise and the food was wonderful. Each dinning room has ... Read more

I want to preface my comments by saying that until we took an Oceania cruise to the Baltics a few years ago I was through with cruising. I had been on four lines (one a small South American one which I loved) and I just wasn't fond of ... Read more

This was the smallest ship we had cruised on, our last two cruises had been with Celebrity, which we had enjoyed. The Riveria was a great size, big enough for enough variety but never felt busy. We loved the variety of places to eat, we ... Read more
