Sail Date: Feb 2016
Cabin: Penthouse Suite

Their are several reasons not to cruise with Oceania, especially on the Riveria.

1. Multiple norovirus outbreaks, 3 outbreaks since Dec. 2015. The latest one on March 20th.

This is shortly after the massive CDC supervised cleaning that the ship underwent following the Feb. 12 outbreak. There is obviously a problem with the cleaning procedures on Riveria.

Cabin Review

Penthouse Suite

Cabin PH3

This cabin was the best thing about our cruise. It was roomy and very well appointed with draws to put your clothes away and a fairly good size closet. The bathroom was a good size also with lots of storage as well. Our cabin attendants were wonderful. I think out butler did a good job under the circumstances, he was conscripted into the cleaning effort and was not available to help unpack. He did try during cruise to make sure we comfortable. Since dining lunch venues were so chaotic we spend the second day in our room and on our verandah to destress.
