Excellent Oceania Experience

Riviera Cruise Review by Knox Tn Cruiser

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Aug 2018
  • Destination: the Mediterranean
  • Cabin Type: Concierge Level

Very happy with our first Oceania experience. Excellent staff and service and the food exceeds anything we’ve experienced on RCCL. Cabin was very nice and always well kept. Food in the specialty restaurants ranged from good (Polo Grill & Tuscana) to excellent (Red Ginger). Onboard activities are limited compared to the larger party barges but they maintained your normal trivia and few other activities. The talent was average at best. The ports as a whole were very good. Venice for 2 days was very nice. The stop in Slovenia was a pleasant surprise. We took an excursion to Ljubljana, I highly recommend this trip along with seeing Lake Bled. Dubrovnik should be on everyone’s bucket list. We took the Mt Etna excursion from Catania and it was very good but could have been fantastic if the weather would have cooperated. The float into Montenegro was just beautiful but the port itself is filled with pushy sales people pawning sunglasses and excursions so buyer beware!! Argistoli unfortunately is nothing but a giant souvenir shop,

Cabin Review

Concierge Level
Cabin A4 9136

Very nice cabin. Loved the balcony and the bed was very comfortable. Bathroom has some wasted space. It has a small shower and a separate tub. Tub takes up room that could be better used.

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews


Very nice area. No need to pay for excursion everything you’d want to see is within walking distance


Loved Dubrovnik. Walking the walls was an experience we’ll never forget. Again forget the excursions and get lost in this this great place on your own.


Great views sailing into port but town is full of pushy hucksters pushing there cheap goods


Mt Etna was great but if weather would have cooperated it would have been fantastic

First rate all the way. One word FANTASTIC!!
