A bit more work on the food and everything will be shipshape.

Sail Date: Jul 2016
Cabin: Penthouse Suite

Close friends cruise with Oceania on this ship every year, sometimes twice a year, so our maiden voyage on the Riviera came with high expectations.

Overall we weren't disappointed. We occupied a PHI penthouse suite on deck 11. The accommodation was both spacious and elegant with walk-in wardrobe, flat screen TV, a spacious verandah and one of the most comfortable beds we've slept in. One criticism was the bathroom - single, rather than double sinks and a somewhat cramped shower cubicle. Good quality linens and a plentiful supply of towels, changed twice a day.

Our butler, Titus, and stewardess Natasha, couldn't have been more gracious and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and service was impeccable, as it was pretty much throughout the ship.

Cabin Review

Penthouse Suite

Cabin PH1

Well appointed and spacious, though bathroom could be bigger, especially the shower cubicle. Great bed, good quality linens, towels and robes.

A welcome bottle of champagne, wide choice of afternoon canapes and great butler and maid service.
