Really excellent cruise overall.

There were some islands on this cruise we've not been to before, which is the reason we took it. That & the wonderful food on board Riviera. We do need to stress that entertainment is rather bland on this ship. The ...

Wish I was planning a new Riviera sailing instead of writing this review

2nd cruise on Oceania Riviera, 24th Cruise. First sailing was Amalfi Coast, beautiful but - no sea days to enjoy the ship. We very much enjoyed the ship this time. The ship is the perfect size for us, 1250 PAX ...

We chose this cruise because of the itinerary and the amenities. The passenger age definitely skews to the over 60 crowd. The food was among the best we have ever had on a cruise ship. The specialty ...

Excellent Cruise

We chose Riviera because we were looking for an upmarket cruise and they were offering a special rate. We didn’t want to be on board a huge ship and we wanted a beautiful cabin to enjoy while on board. The ...

Oceania Disappoints

This was our 8th Cruise on Oceania. We sailed May 17, 2018 from Rome to Venice on an 8 day cruise. We've always felt in the past sailing on Oceania was worth the extra cost over some of the mainstream cruiselines. ...

Still the best

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 ...

Pleasing even the most discerning client, like me!

Let's start with the boat. Elegant and tasteful with contemporary artwork throughout, I found nothing lacking in design and certainly, not the "glitzy" look! We did end up getting a suite (penthouse, I believe) so ...

I consider our other 10 cruises as trial runs for an Oceania cruise. The Riviera so far surpassed accoutrements, service and food of other cruise lines that I think I'm spoiled forever. The cabin was perfectly ...
