We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and the amenities. The passenger age definitely skews to the over 60 crowd. The food was among the best we have ever had on a cruise ship. The specialty restaurants offered a good variety of dishes. The Italian and French restaurants were the better of the 4. As New Yorkers, we have no shortage of good steakhouses or Asian restaurants so ...

Oceania is a Distinct Cruise Experience that is Not for Everyone - But is for Me

My wife and I are experienced cruisers (over 40 cruises) and Oceania in particular (over 15 cruises). I will start out by saying we love Oceania and have 4 more cruises on them currently booked. I will not comment on my last cruise since the ports are well covered elsewhere. Rather I will comment on Oceania in general. I am always confused by people who are not happy with an Oceania cruise ...

Oceania lives up to its reputation for being one of the best. As a new cruise ship passenger, I would suggest more instruction on the initial embarkation. I am new to cruising and some of the people I interacted with assumed that I should know how to board they ship. Overall the experience was great. The crew onboard takes good care of you and the cabins are most comfortable. Even better ...

Wanted to do a cruise going to Italy. Fabulous food, ship and crew. They couldn't have been more helpful and courteous. So easy boarding, Nice cabin, only thing is they should have made the tub a walk in shower. Shower VERY small. How many people sit in a tub on a cruise? Entertainment could have been better. Liked the fact that some of the bars had happy hours, and bartenders where quite ...

Chose cruise to see western Mediterranean ports. This cruise visited six. Food was fantastic, shows very good, internet poor, staff wonderful, excursions very good. Regrets that unable to enjoy ship more as we had excursions in every port. If they solve thier Internet issues, it would have received 5 stars. We had requested no coke drinks, instead diet Sprite or diet 7up or ginger ale ...

We cruised on the Oceania Riviera from Athens to Monte Carlo. While my husband and I enjoyed the excellent service and the ports, and overall had a great time on the cruise, we were disappointed in the ship. Unlike the Disney and Celebrity ships, the public rooms had no "wow" factor, and the decor was not impressive. The bright lighting, sheer curtains, and Muzak in the dining areas detracted ...

Wonderful cruise, but for a luxury line it leaves things a bit lacking

On the whole, the cruise was very very good and the itinerary (which I credit Oceania with putting together) was excellent. However, for a line and ship that bill themselves as a luxury line, I just don't think they lived up to it. Our most recent cruises prior to this were with Celebrity on Solstice class ships and I found the ship experience on those better, and not necessarily because of the ...

We are active, mature, independent experienced travelers who've been on 10 cruises or so. We had booked Oceania's Lima-Miami cruise, which they must have oversold because they kept sending emails inviting us to voluntarily switch to other cruises. We eventually swapped for this and were awarded an amazing Vista Suite at the front of the boat. That set a fabulous, luxurious tone for this, our ...

Oceania always provide good services, food and entertainment. The only disappointments were the cancellation of Istanbul and Cairo within the lists of Port of Call. Those cities were the reasons for the initial booking of this cruise. Some travelers mentioned receiving shipboard credit after complaining to Oceania (which would need confirmation). If that was true and correct, Oceania should ...

Only booked a few weeks before we sailed as my wife needed to e stress after our daughters wedding which was the week before.sailed with riviera 1st in 2015 and was disappointed then, that we never got a bed by the pool when we came back on board in the afternoon. I prefer the smaller ships with around 600 passengers but no complaints about overcrowding on this cruise. staff were excellent and ...
