Sail Date: Aug 2019
Cabin: Verandah Stateroom

This was our second cruise on the Riviera. The food quality and service quality have fallen significantly over the past year.

We went on our first Oceania cruise in 2014 on the sister ship, Marina, for a Baltic cruise. We could not believe how wonderful and attentive the staff was. The shore excursions were great and fairly priced. The food and drink service was outstanding.

Last year we took Riviera for the Greek Island cruise. The food quality in the main dining room had dropped. The service had lessened. The shore excursions were much more crowded and over priced.

Port Reviews


The tour of the manor house was a bit short on time, but well worth the journey

Lerwick (Shetland Islands)

We hired our own guide to tour the Island. Much more intimate and cheaper than the cruise line tour.
