Additional details

Sail Date: Nov 2012

We have been cruising with Oceania, and her sister Regent for a number of years. Ships, and service are always great, never a problem, great Butlers, we don't bother with the others except for the Paul G. for Tahiti, and its sister T. Moana in the Caribbean.

Riviera, is a great, no grand ship. I could find no fault with her, except her entertainment which was sub par (check who her contractor is), and the crew transparency, particularly the officers, on the second leg of the cruise was lacking.

We were one of 14 ships ship that got a CDC certified NoroVirus outbreak in 2012. It was pretty obvious what was going on, yet the the staff would say nothing, although towards the end of the cruise, all medical services were free. All four of us, including one who is a doctor got it, and yet they would said it did not exist. It affected the crew, and passengers, and we spent two days restricted to our cabin. The room service was great, as my wife had it, but I didn't get it until after the trip, on the plane home (not good).

Cabin Review

11010 on Riviera is great. Just behind the officers quarters, so you will know if there is something wrong, and the Bridge, and very close to the executive lounge, and the laundry room
