Sail Date: Dec 2017
Cabin: Oceania Suite

Oceania is still one of the best cruise lines and the Riviera is one of the best ships in the fleet. It's large enough to offer all the amenities and yet small enough to feel intimate in many ways. We once again had an Oceania suite and this is one of the finest staterooms on any ship we've been on; large enough to live in long-term.

There is a butler and a stateroom attendant to look after your every need; the suite is serviced at least twice a day. it also comes with a mini-fridge with soft drinks and beer, and the bar has six full bottles of premium liquor. We swapped the liquor for six bottles of wine that we drank in the restaurants and the suite.

And the food remains to be some of the best - anyplace.There are four specialty venues aboard and there is no additional charge for using them. With the Oceania suite, you have two nights in each restaurant. Plus there is the Grand Dining Room, the Terrace Buffet and Waves Grill, plus a barista and the daily high tea. This ship is a foodie's delight!

Cabin Review

Oceania Suite

Cabin OC

This suite has a very large king-sized bedroom, very large master bath and large walk-in dressing room with plenty of hanging space and storage. The large parlor has a wet bar, computer desk, dining area and plenty of space to entertain guests. And there's a second full bath for guests.

In addition to a large screen t-v, the media room has a PS3 and DVD player. And for chuckles, there is a hot tub on the balcony with a t-ve above it.
