Sail Date: Sep 2023
Cabin: Penthouse Suite

Having sailed on 50 cruises or more, this was the best cruise we have ever had. Everything about the ship, food, service, and cabins were first rate.

Riviera is completely refurbished and looks spectacular in all areas. She is a beautiful ship inside and out. With about 1200 passengers, Riviera is large enough to give you plenty of dining options and public areas and yet small enough to provide exceptional service.

Our penthouse suite was perfectly laid out. Felt large though it is smaller than the Neptune Suites on Holland America. We had cabin which was perfectly situated. The cabin attendants were excellent in all respects. Whenever we left our cabin, they were aware and made sure it was made by the time we returned. Our butler was good and made specialty restaurant reservations with ease. Would definitely book a PH Suite again. Our travel companions had Marvin as their butler, who was outstanding.

Overrun with bicycles that will run you over in a heartbeat. Will never return.


Great port with beautiful walled city.
