Another Wonderful Oceania Cruise

Riviera Cruise Review by BobC1950

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Feb 2020
  • Destination: the Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean View

We had a great cruise for two weeks in the Caribbean visiting nine beautiful islands. This was our 27th cruise overall on five different lines and our third cruise on Oceania. They are still the best.

The weather was very good 13 out of 14 days. Our next to last day was rough seas and a little difficult for everyone but the Captain & crew did everything they could to make us comfortable. It passed & our last day on board was great.

We ate meals at seven restaurants & they were all delicious. Constantly changing menus provided a wide array of choices each day. Menus are available on your cabin TV so you always know what is available. Grilled Lobster, Lamb Chops, and Steaks were available every night in the Terrace restaurant Grill in addition to the ever changing evening selections. Service was very good throughout the ship and some of the staff are truly exceptional. Everyone was very friendly & always willing to help.

Our cabin, a Deluxe Ocean View, was larger than many similar cabins on other cruise lines, very comfortable and well maintained. The bathroom was always clean. Our cabin Steward and his associate were exceptional!

Entertainment on board was varied & available all day every day. Everyone can find something to do all day long. Evening shows were very good. The production shows showcased some very talented young singers and dancers. The comedian had the entire audience laughing from beginning to end, and all without a four letter word! We were very surprised by the magician who was talented at magic and a real entertainer. Great entertainment overall, not what you would see on a 4,000 passenger ship, but we did not want to be on a 4,000 passenger ship. It was a lot of fun for a ship this size.

We have chosen Oceania for our last two cruises because of the individual service you receive and the quality of the staff. We highly recommend this cruise line.

Cabin Review

Deluxe Ocean View

We selected the Deluxe Ocean View cabin. It was larger than many similar cabins on other cruise lines and was very comfortable and well maintained. The bathroom was larger than other similar cabins. Our cabin Steward and his associate were exceptional individuals always checking to see if everything was OK or if we needed anything.


Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Barbados

Our guide, Sunshine, was exceptional. She took us to some of the most beautiful views on the island. Great 1/2 day tour.
