Review for Riviera to Caribbean - Eastern

Cruised on Riviera previously. Onboard is fantastic. Cabins service food all 5 star plus. Relaxed atmosphere and no dressing up required. Public areas are luxurious. Lots of activities appropriate to the demographic of the clientele. (The majority of passengers were clearly retired). Staff could not be more accommodating. Ports of call were uninspiring. I don't know about the excursions ...

Oceania is still one of the best cruise lines and the Riviera is one of the best ships in the fleet. It's large enough to offer all the amenities and yet small enough to feel intimate in many ways. We once again had an Oceania suite and this is one of the finest staterooms on any ship we've been on; large enough to live in long-term. There is a butler and a stateroom attendant to look after ...

Having been on Oceania's small ships we wanted to try their larger ships. The Rivera with one thousand passengers has the feeling of a small ship. The specialty restaurants are as good as any I've dined and I've been on many cruise lines. Special kudos to Red Ginger & Jacques. The breakfast and lunch buffets were excellent with tremendous variety. The itinerary was the Eastern Caribbean, which ...

Having sailed on the Regatta a few years ago, my husband and I chose Oceania's Riviera so we could experience the two additional specialty restaurants, as well as the on-board Culinary School classes. We had wonderful meals in Red Ginger, Polo Grille, Jacques, and Toscana. The service and presentation of each and every dinner was top-notch. Embarkation in Miami was a bit chaotic - U.S. ...

This was our 13th cruise and thankfully proved to be not that unlucky. We had sailed on the sister ship, Marina, on a transatlantic the previous year so knew what to expect regarding the layout of the ship and the facilities. Like last time we booked a concierge stateroom, this time on deck 9, which came with a few added extras. We flew from Glasgow via Heathrow to Miami with BA on the ...

We chose to book a Caribbean cruise on Oceania Riviera as we wanted to experience a luxury cruise ship and it was amazing. We loved the stylish decor, paintings, works of art, the Lalique staircase, comfortable lounge areas , ample seating up in Horizons bar/lounge...the anytime dining was great no pressures. We enjoyed meals in the Grand Dining Room we prebooked meals in Jacques and in Red ...

I would have rated the cruise and Oceana as a 5 if it wasn't for the cheap flight arranged with the olife option. 2 stops each way totally unacceptable. Rest of cruise wad fabulous with incredible food and excellant shows. Around the World with the singers and dancers might have been one of the best shows we have seen. Not being continually hounded to buy photos -priceless. Embarkation was a ...

We chose this trip because of the itinerary and high praise from our travel agent. All I can say is that the cruise was absolutely perfect. Check-in was simple and short. All the food areas are outstanding. The 4 special restaurants are free, but advance reservations are a good idea. We did not particularly enjoy the Asian one, but perhaps it was our choices. Cabins are very large and ...

A beautiful ship and great food, but overall a disappointment

Recently returned from a Caribbean cruise on Oceania's Riviera. We chose Oceania mainly on the basis of its reputation for food and Riviera because of the relatively small size (about 1250 passengers). We had a stateroom with veranda. We are fairly experienced cruisers, having been on about a dozen or so cruises in the past on various-sized ships ( 600 to 2000+ passengers). This was our first ...

My overall impression of our first cruise aboard the an Oceania cruise was excellent. There were some issues that prevented me from giving the cruise an overall excellent rating. Here is a summary. Details later in my review. The food, service and decor of the ship were outstanding. Our cabin and the public areas were always sparkling clean. Ports were typical Caribbean islands - beaches, ...
