We had a fabulous time on Oceania Riveria Jan 4-14. Shape of ship, Service, Food, Covid Precautions, Cabin, Cruise Director were all outstanding.

Checking in at the port was painless. Oceania really has their act together with Covid precautions. We had a 11:00 - 11:30 check in time at the Miami Port. We did precruise COVID testing before heading to Miami within 48 hours and then were tested up arrival. They had numerous personal available and the whole process was around 15 minutes including waiting for results. Then we went on the ship and could even drop off our carry on's in our concierge cabin before heading to the buffet for lunch.

We were so impressed with the crew. They did everything possible to make us feel welcome and attend to our needs. The cruise director Paul Baya was terrific. He started the evening entertainment each night with a quick introduction and then immediately the show began. No long announcements.
