This cruise being a repositioning cruise offered a penthouse with butler at an affordable price on one of Oceania newer vessels the Riviera..The butler was able to get us into the specialty restaurants on additional nights as well as deliver in room breakfast of any food not only the ones listed on the breakfast card Highlights included some outstanding tours particularly the one organized by the Culinary Institute in Madeira which includes sampling wines shopping in an open market where we were give 5 euros per individual to buy food and lunch where we were able to taste some local dishes such as the black scabbard fish The ships food is excellent and I particularly love the lobster tails off the grill. The entertainment ranged from excellent to mediocre depending on the evening The room stewards were excellent and so was our butler We only travel on Oceania because there in no dressup and no photographer

An absolutely class ship
