This was our third sailing with Oceania and our second on the Riviera. They hit the sweet spot for us being upscale but not pretentious. This time we had cabin 10064 which is a concierge level veranda stateroom. While we enjoyed the extra amenities of being in a concierge cabin for us it is not worth the additional cost. In the future we will stick with a regular veranda stateroom which is exactly the same size and layout as the concierge veranda staterooms. Having a veranda is well worth the additional cost. The cabins are a very comfortable size with room to unpack and put everything away. The beds are wonderful. Both embarkation and disembarkation were handled very smoothly and efficiently. Service throughout was very good from the stateroom attendants to the restaurants to the bars. The restaurants were all very good. Toscana is the only one we don't bother to go to. Be sure to note happy hour in the bars to take advantage of two-for-one prices. The entertainment was not remarkable, but we weren't expecting anything that great anyway. We were disappointed that there were not lecturers on this voyage as we really enjoyed them on previous cruises with Oceania. We did not take any of the cruise line shore excursions on this trip. However, we have taken them in the past and they were all quite good if a bit expensive. We find Oceania to be the cruise line that suits us the best and have already booked a future cruise with them. We can recommend them without hesitiation.

Cabin Review

Concierge Level
Cabin A1 10064
Spacious with comfortable couch, table, desk, TV and fair sized closet. Excellent queen sized bed with room beneath to store suitcases. Veranda had chairs and was comfortable. Bathroom has a tub/shower combination and a separate very small shower. Extensive use of granite give an upscale feel. Towels were very good and plentiful and toiletries were good.
