7 Countries in 9 Days on the Beautiful Riviera

|

This was our second cruise on Oceania after sailing the much smaller Insignia a year earlier. We wanted to try out all the things that the 'O Class' Ships can offer that aren't on the more intimate 'R Class' Ships ...

Overall a great ship

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 ...

Still a wonderful ship

I agree that things have slipped a little with food since we were on the maiden voyage of the Riviera a few years ago, and I noticed that on another Oceania ship last year as well. However, the ship itself is still ...

The suite was great, food was wonderful, but not a lot to do on the ship.

The cabin was incredible. Way more luxurious and roomier than the photos show. The media room was the hangout place for the wife and I, as they had every movie and TV show you could want on their DVR. This cabin is ...

Oceania cruise service above average

Oceania offered a trip to ports which interested us, with a reputation for fine service. In most aspects, we were very satisfied. The cabin was commodious and well furnished, with a full bed, love seat, desk, two ...

Oceania, not exactly what we expected

We embarked on our honeymoon cruise after being told this cruise would have a higher percentage of older people and no kids. We thought this sounded great. We signed up for prepaid gratuities, free airfare from ...

Enjoyable but a Few Glitches

We joined the ship in Istanbul. Embarkation was quick and smooth. Don't expect any kind of welcome in board; no senior staff or welcome drink. The ship is beautiful and the service and house staff really do a ...

Ancient Empires

This was our first cruise, so we had nothing to compare. However, we did our research and chose Oceania because of the great ratings. The Riviera is certainly a beautiful new ship, and our amenities were excellent ...

Ancient Empires Cruise on the Magnificent Oceania Riviera

Background We are probably amongst the youngest Oceania loyalists (25 and 34) but we just love traveling by ship and the atmosphere and food only found on Oceania Cruises. After our ‘Mayan Mystique’ cruise ...

Oceania makes it easy... but it's not perfect

Kudos for Oceania for really delivering on the promise of a "no hassle" cruise experience. Aboard Riviera, you dine when you like, embark and disembark without (significant) line-ups (including at ports), and ...

Why did I book this for October?

Weather in northeast was far too cold to enjoy the beautiful cities of Canada and New England. Embarkation looked like a greased pig rodeo with two individuals (later three) controlling the crowds. The ...
