I’m used to have always gone on sea goddess back in its day and crystal, so unfortunately my standards are really high. This cruise ship made me hate cruising forever. I don’t understand the hype. Old cruise ship trying to squeeze out every penny from you by investing the minimum. The food is awful at the main dining room. My sons school cafeteria lunches are superior. The specialty ...

Chose this ship because we had enjoyed it before. Sailed on it the season it came out. It was wonderful then. Now it is old and tired. The gdr selections were poor. Had to send back our food twice. We had reason to use the medical facility. I understand i had to pay extrra, but they chased me for the fifty dollar fee like i hadn't paid a small fortune to be on the ship to begin ...

Loved the itinerary - many locations we had not visited. However a horrible cruise overall. Booked our flight through Oceania as part of the cruise package and arrived at the airport to find out that our flight was cancelled the day before. No notice received from airline(Austrian Air) or Oceania - frustrating way to start a vacation. Thank goodness we arived early at the airport and was able to ...

This was a honeymoon cruise and expectations were high. On the third night of the cruise our shower lost pressure only to regain pressure while gushing hot thick brown water. Thank God my wife was not in the shower, otherwise her being covered in thick brown water would have ruined our honeymoon. I was told by reception we would have a plumber address the situation right away only to have our ...

We selected this cruise for the itinerary and specific ports. We believed Oceania was in the luxury category, and the Riveria would be a lovely ship with excellent food and service, even though the entertainment would be limited to that of larger cruise lines. We arrived at the cruise terminal and check in went quickly. However, there was a considerable walk to the ship over gravel with carry ...

Well! Well! Where to begin? Flight problems: After receiving our flight information, I called the airlines to see if we could upgrade to first class. We were told that since our tickets were "bulk" purchase (more on this later), we could not upgrade. While I was talking to Delta, the man mentioned that we had no tickets for the flight home. I called Florida, and was told that there was no ...

My husband and I have sailed many times with Windstar, Seabourn, Azamara, Cunard, Celebrity, and Holland America. This was the worst cruise we have ever experienced. From the moment of embarkation, seemingly simple requests were met with indignation by the staff (a request for a map of the ship, the ship's itinerary, a printout of a boarding pass, etc.). This was a bad sign for us as we had paid ...

We are 4 time cruisers on Oceania, 3 times on Riviera and 1 time on Marina. We LOVED Oceania! But this cruise was a huge disappointment!! First up was the food.. they advertise that its for foodies of which we are.. we did love their food and thought is was truly the best of all the lines we travelled on. On the first day (embarkation) at the Terrace Buffet (one of my favourite places to dine ...

Well day 2 the norovirus struck the ship again. We were on this protocol the rest of the cruise even though after 10 days no new cases and down to 2 quarantined. The staff was doing their best but could never keep up. This was especially noticed by the last few days of the 14 day cruise. Terrace Cafe was a disaster with keeping up with food and service. We were not allowed to port in Aruba ...
