The Riviera was everything we expected and more. The ship's interior design has been done with impeccable taste, with soft colors, beautiful Lalique touches, and an art collection that makes this vessel a floating museum. The cabins were spacious and the beds where divine with great pillows and 5-star hotel bed linens. We were in the Concierge level, that included Bulgary toiletries, private lounge with snacks and drinks and total access to the Canyon Ranch Spa facilities. The pool deck is elegant, with amazing lounge chairs and a very attentive staff. The Canyon Ranch Spa is terrific, we especially enjoyed the morning workout classes with Veera. She was amazing, and believe me we needed it after eating all the wonderful food. Both the main dining room and the buffet were fantastic. The evening buffet featured a different dinner menu every night, but always featured filet and lobster tails as an option. The specialty restaurants were amazing also. The Polo Grill is a top-notch steak house with gorgeous cuts, delicious appetizer options and great wine list. Toscana features a superb italian menu, Red Ginger an exotic asian mix with to die appetizers and equally delicious entrees. Jacques (named after chef Jacques Pepin) offers many of his famous recipes and more, this french cuisine was truly a treat. A friend told me once you cruise on Oceania, you can't go anywhere else. She's right! The itinerary was so wonderful I cannot tell you what my favorite port was, because I loved them all.

Finest food on the ocean.
