Very relaxing trip with great service

This was our 4th sailing with Oceania and our second sailing on Riviera (we have also sailed on her sister ship, Marina). This is the first sailing we have taken with Oceania that was not "port intensive". We had ...

Food Great---The Rest Awful

Embarkation easy. The first 3 days went well if you excluded the very poor entertainment. I found the cabin very dusty and the windows were filthy. Service is good in the specialty restaurants but spotty in the ...

Expected More, but still very good

My husband and I chose this cruise because of the advertised reputation of Oceania and because it embarked in Venice, which was a place we wanted to return to, and it had a stop in Antibes that would allow us to see ...

Not the cruise we were expecting.

This was our second cruise on the Riviera and we were so looking forward to the food, playing tennis, golf and croquet on the forward sports deck and taking art and culinary classes when we were at sea. We also had ...

Sailing With Buckets of Disinfectant Throuh the Caribbean

This was our third cruise with Oceania, first on Riveria (probably our last), second with Marina. We were very excited about this cruise because the ports of call were different from any we had taken in the past, ...

Perfect Size Ship, Good Food, Good Entertainment

Riviera is a perfect size ship being very easy to get around. Amazingly for it's relatively small size, it boasts a total of 14 musicians (excellent), 11 singers/dancers (all exceptional), and very entertaining ...

Simply Superb... as Always

Our 9th Oceania Cruise (five on REGATTA, one on MARINA and three on RIVIERA) did nothing to dispel our opinion this is the best cruise product out there. Indeed, I rate it as perhaps our best in terms of the overall ...

You will find a better value elsewhere

CONS: Concierge Level is NOT worth it. There are no advantages to paying more for this privilege. A few upscale toiletries are about the extent of this level. The “Concierge Lounge” is nothing more that an ...
