We just concluded Oceania's cruise from Venice to Athens on the "Riviera". Among over 1,000 passengers were only 5-6 young ones; the rest were senior citizens in their '70s. There were no poolside (or anywhere else) activities, ... Read more

Doesn't matter which ship you take on Oceania; some people prefer the larger (1250 passengers), other the smaller (650 passengers), but always first class service and food. None of this comes inexpensively, so what's to complain about? ... Read more

We found the staff very hard working and dedicated but where are they?? We think Riviera has cut staff and we have never seen so many staff cry or be called out by the heads of each of the restaurants. Lots of bullies on this ship. We ... Read more

The boat is beautiful, the service wonderful. The other travelers were terrific. Aside from some issues with the cabin, it was an ideal trip. There were a couple of ports that weren't worth a stop, but maybe they needed to - and the ... Read more

As a frequent guest of the Oceania Cruise Line, our two-week visit to the Mediterranean was our first experience outside of the Caribbean. We arranged to spend two full days in Monte Carlo before departure. For the record, Le Meridien ... Read more

I chose this cruise because it coincided with a wedding we were attending in Italy. Ours was the Western Mediterranean cruise which departed June 14, 2017. Our friends had cruised on the Riviera and highly recommended it. We couldn't ... Read more

We were very curious about Oceania, and all the brochures that were piling up from the mail piqued our interest as well. We actually thought we were their targeted demographic; our WSJ had brochures enclosed weekly. Also, a few years ago, ... Read more

We loved the ship, the service was impeccable and the food was very good. I would have to say the food in the main dining was better than the specialty restaurants except for Red Ginger and Jacques which were excellent. The service on ... Read more

This was our first cruise on Oceania. We chose this ship because of the itinerary, and for that reason it was excellent. At 70, we were probably about average in age, if not on the younger side - there were very few passengers under 50. ... Read more

After having just read the review by Shoko I feel like we shared the exact same experience! I, too, discovered that Oceania was bought out by NCL and also found out that NCL is trying to 'come up' to Oceania's high standards. Well, in dong ... Read more
