We chose this cruise mainly because it offered 3 full days in St Petersburg. We were also influenced by the good reviews of the ship and we were not disappointed on that score. As St Petersburg was our main objective, we saved on our ... Read more

Sorry, Oceania, but Princess has a better product. The food was not enjoyable and rather repetitive. The pizza was to die for--literally--that bad! Here in Rome we had real pizza; the stuff at the Terrace Cafe was tomatoe sauce on ... 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

We chose this cruise for its ports in the Baltic, and also to try out Oceania which has been inundating us with brochures (which eventually worked, I guess:) Much about the ship and cruise suited us. We wanted a smallish ship that did not ... Read more

The ship decor has a lot of character with beautiful furniture and mahogony walls and trim. Lovely marble and gorgeous rugs grace the whole ship. We enjoyed the peaceful spacious surroundings with not a lot of people around as ... Read more

Days at sea were restful and wonderful. Food was bland and had little flavor. I found food on Riviera to be delicious last June. For example, the steak at Tuscan steakhouse was flavorful, like it was dry aged and came with gorngonzola ... Read more

Positive: - Food: if you’re a foodie, this is the cruise line for you. The ‘cafeteria’ type food served in the Terrace was average at best, and breakfasts are nothing special. Dinners, however, are first rate. ... Read more

This was our third time on Marina and fifth with O. Service and food slipping a bit since they were bought by Norwegian. Food very inconsistent even in each restaurant. Still good but a little less so. Great itineraries make it first ... Read more

Past experience with Oceania and desire for Alaska cruise. As always, food was great, cabins excellent. Only criticism is that shore excursions seem significantly higher and those available elsewhere. Found there were other bridge players ... Read more

This was our 18th cruise, having cruised aboard most of the major lines (Princess, RCCL,Holland America) and we found the Rivieria to be the most comfortable and relaxing ship we have been aboard. Our balcony cabin on the 8th deck had ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the convenience for us to depart and return to Miami, for Oceania's reputation for good food, and for the experience of cruising on a smaller ship than we had previously experienced. Embarkation at noon was ... Read more

The itinerary was the attraction as well as the benefits conferred as a result of my cruise status (over 15 with Oceania in the last 5 years.) The service in the cafeteria was sub-par. many of the servers didn't speak adequate ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of the destination and our prior cruises with Oceana. While our cabin was good, our cabin attendant was usually no where to be found. The food was a disappointment, especially the 2 upscale restaurants. At ... Read more

We chose this cruise because of its itinerary, however the weather spoilt the first part of the trip as it was freezing in China and Japan. We had previously travelled on the Nautica in the Baltic and in hindsight we should have learnt ... Read more

We jumped on this cruise when we heard it was going to Cuba - the first of the Norwegian line ships to do so. It was also visiting some Central and South American ports we wanted to visit. We had already travelled with Oceania before ... Read more

Small ship had advantages and disadvantages: in rough seas the motion is much more of a problem and we had some very rough seas. Another advantage is that smaller ship can dock much closer to towns than larger ones: unfortunately, this was ... Read more

We chose Oceania to try a different cruise line. Spent a lot of time on Cruse Critic forums to get some idea of what to expect. The ship is outstanding, as is the service from the crew. So attentive that it could have become annoying. ... Read more

The cruise on the Oceania Marina was excellent and I would be confident in recommending it to anyone, especially for “foodies”. The choices and variety of food were outstanding even at the Terrace Café which had both ... Read more
