Food was a big disappointment
"At the Italian restaurant Toscana 2 of the 4 of us dining had to send our veal chop back it was so cold.Many of the restaurant food items seem prepared in advance and just reheated so it lacks a freshness...."Read More

lovely ship, but operations are disorganized

Review for a Asia Cruise on Riviera

10+ Cruises • Age 60s

The ship altered the itinerary by an hour or 2 at each port (shorter), and that sent the shore excursion department into convulsions . There were line ups of 15 to 25 people constantly as the Shore excursion desk. We enjoyed the lovely ship and our veranda B2 cabin was the nicest we have ever had at sea, (after 15 cruises.) The food in the Terrace cafe was outstanding. We had a good ...

Total disappointment

Review for a Trans-Ocean Cruise on Riviera

Oakleaf81
6-10 Cruises • Age 70s

I chose the 20 night trip from Mumbai to Singapore, especially looking forward to revisiting the Maldives, and generally having tours which gave experiences out of the norm. I particularly wanted to treat myself to some top-notch cuisine. Oh dear, what a mistake. There were good points. The cabin was usual size, clean, comfortable. Storage fine for one person, but inadequate for two. BUT ...

Disappointing cruise experience

10+ Cruises • Age 70s

Pros: Specialty restaurants had great food and service Entertainment and variety excellent Art courses terrific teachers and classes Cons: they cancelled 7 ports with no refunds of loss port, port fees, VISA fees etc. Terrible we have done over 70 cruises and plan on doing many more but will never use them again. Their policy has changed and any cruise line we have taken has ...

Not worth the money

Review for a Middle East Cruise on Riviera

CRUISINGCAROKE
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We selected this cruise as it called at ports we wanted to visit particularly Oman. Sadly, the war put an end to 4 out of 8 ports of call. Whilst we appreciate this was unfortunate & understood, we were not offered any acceptable alternatives as we had paid for business class flights to Dubai so cancelling was not an option. Also, if you cancelled you lost 25% of the amount paid & the remaining ...

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Riviera

Trekker Dude
10+ Cruises • Age 70s

We're seasoned cruisers with over 30 cruises on most of the major cruiselines but not Oceania. We went on 3 Oceania Riviera cruises in 2023, Sep/Oct from Amsterdam to Barcelona and then back to back cruises in Nov/Dec from Barcelona to Istanbul and then Istanbul to Dubai. My review is on all 3 cruises on the same ship. We booked the Holyland & Middle East cruise the first day it was available ...

Cruise to No Where!

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Riviera

Travelforfuture
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

So so incredibly disappointed with Oceania. Absolutely no guest/customer service. Have raised all issues with onboard team, Oceania guest relations and still no communication back. This cruise is going no where, no ports now for 9 days, even restaurants closed on some nights so no choice and tonight all specialty restaurants closed and only Grand Dining and Terrace cafe open. As to onboard ...

Oceania - 2 Star at most

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Riviera

Travelforfuture
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

We ate long time cruisers with Oceania but now a lost customer! We booked this cruise in 2019 for 2020 travel dates. Alas pandemic curtailed those plans until this year. We in fact booked a 30 day cruise Barcelona to Dubai - never being informed that it was 2 back to back cruises - first issue as this was the start of lack of communication and guest satisfaction, We were advised of ...

The 2nd 10 magical nights of our B2B in the Med

Review for a Europe - Western Mediterranean Cruise on Riviera

MEFIowa
2-5 Cruises • Age 60s

We used O's Extraordinary Savings Sale to get our B3 cabin for a mere $1749 PP plus $300 OBC PP (which paid our gratuities). So, the price alone made this trip worth it. BUT we travel for itineraries and this one did it for us. We only had the 1 sea day, which I do not enjoy that much, but we had Athens, Kavala, Istanbul, Messina, Naples, Rome, La Spezia (changed due to weather from Livorno), ...

Sadly the old Oceania is no more.

Review for a Europe - Eastern Mediterranean Cruise on Riviera

Floatog
10+ Cruises • Age 60s

This was our ninth cruise with Oceania. We started on Riviera and were totally thrilled. Coming over from Cunard Queens Grill as the Oceania way of doing things suited us better. That first cruise was a 10/10 for us, and we’ve been committed ever since. The small changes that have been made are never to enhance the passenger experience. The food has slipped. Not always, but not as refined, not ...
