Oceania Riviera

4.6/5 |
Stunning Riviera was designed to be distinctive and special in so many ways. Featuring the magnificent Lalique Grand Staircase, stunning Owner's Suites furnished in Ralph Lauren Home, and designer touches throughout the entire ship, Riviera showcases rich residential design and furnishings. Riviera's refined ambiance truly embodies the unparalleled Oceania Cruises experience.

Ideally proportioned, Riviera still embraces the same warmth and charm of Oceania's other renowned vessels. While the impeccable level of personalized service and the country club casual ambiance remain the same, Riviera offers even more choices, as well as generous new amenities. Designed with the ultimate epicurean and travel connoisseur in mind, Riviera offers guests multiple dining venues, of which six are open-seating gourmet restaurants with no surcharge. La Reserve by Wine Spectator offers enlightening seminars, tastings, and gourmet food pairings. Riviera also features The Culinary Center, the only hands-on cooking school at sea which features a range of cooking classes by master chefs. In the Artist Loft, talented artists-in-residence offer step-by-step instruction in everything from photography to painting to printmaking. Baristas, the signature coffee bar, serves up illy? espresso and coffee, and fresh pastries made daily. Intimate spaces throughout the ship provide relaxing escapes. Spacious accommodations in every category showcase luxurious designer touches and lavish bathrooms.

Notably, the onboard experience continues to exude that comfortable familiarity guests have come to cherish. Oceania Riviera retains everything guests appreciate about their ships and continue to aim even higher.

These areas are comfortably furnished and conveniently located near food and beverage areas. Smoking is expressly forbidden in all staterooms and suites, on verandas, or in any areas of the ship other than officially Designated Smoking Areas. Smoking in a stateroom or suite or on a veranda represents a serious fire and safety hazard to all guests and staff. Guests choosing to disregard this policy will be disembarked at the next port of call and may also be subject to additional fees that will be imposed to cover the costs associated with any damage to and the required cleaning of furnishings, verandas, and surrounding deck and accommodation areas. All areas other than those specified as Designated Smoking Areas will remain smoke-free. This includes all guest suites and staterooms, verandas, restaurants, public areas, the Casino, and all other areas of the ship. Cigar and pipe smoking is only permitted on the forward, starboard corner of the Pool Deck. The use of electronic cigarettes is allowed within designated smoking areas only.

  • Wheelchair Access & Special Needs - Guests with any medical condition(s) or special needs that may require treatment or attention or accommodation during the voyage, or needing to travel with medical apparatus, including wheelchairs, motorized scooters, oxygen therapy, etc., must advise Oceania Cruises in writing at the time of deposit. Please note some ports of call may not be suitable for guests with limited mobility and in such cases, may disallow debarkation with a wheelchair or motorized scooter or for any individual with limited mobility. Oceania Cruises is unable to accommodate women past their sixth month of pregnancy. Oceania Cruises has the right to refuse or revoke passage to anyone who, in its judgment, is in a physical, mental or emotional condition unfit for travel or whose comfort onboard may be compromised due to situations beyond the care that can be provided by Oceania Cruises.

    Wheelchair Assistance

    If a guest needs wheelchair assistance at embarkation and debarkation, the request must be communicated prior to departure so appropriate arrangements for assistance can be made. If a guest is requesting wheelchair assistance at the airport, they must contact the airline directly.

    Oxygen

    Oceania Cruises does not provide oxygen for guests. If a guest requires oxygen, they will need to bring it on board with them. The guest may contact a supply company that will deliver it to the ship for them. Oceania will need to know how many containers, what size they are, and the type. Liquid oxygen is not allowed on board Oceania ships at any time. If the guest needs oxygen for their flights, they will need to arrange it directly with the airline.

    Having medical equipment brought on board is handled on a case by case basis. Oceania Cruises must receive the full dimensions, description of the equipment, name of the delivery company, and all other pertinent information prior to the cruise.

  • Electrical - Each stateroom has two 110 volt outlets and two 220 volt outlets which can be used for items such as battery chargers, hair dryers, razors, and personal hygiene items.

Ship Staterooms

The spacious dimensions of the Riviera's suites and staterooms offer the ultimate in luxury. Interiors are decorated with rich woods, lustrous fabrics, custm-crafted furnishings, and original artworks. A stylish color palette blends the soothing colors of the sea, with earthen hues to express the pinnacles of comfort and beauty.

Get Ready to Elevate Your Standards and Expectations

| Caribbean
Overall, Oceania's commitment to excellence hits the mark. Get ready to relax and see some of the most amazingly beautiful islands in the world.

GREAT TRIP

| FROM BARCELONA TO VENICE
WOULD LIKE UNLIMITED BAR PACKAGE DON'T LIKE CHARGES FOR EVERY DRINK, AROUND POOL COULD STAND A LITTLE BETTER MUSIC CHOICES SEEMED SO DEAD AND COULDN'T HEAR OR NOTHING PLAYING MOST OF THE TIME

Absolutely Fabulous

| Athens, Heraklion, Katakalon, Santorini, Corfu, Sicily, Sorrento, Rome
Loved the Lounge on each floor for internet, snacks, concierge assistance. Having a laundry on each floor was very helpful, too. The tours varied. Some good, some not so good. Some tour leaders talked way too much and lost their audience. Staff was excellent. Couldn't have been more helpful. Our agent arranged hotels in Athens and Rome. Great choices.

Good ship, good vibes

| Citavecchia, Sorrento, Catania, Malta, Corfu, Kotor, Split, Ravenna, Rijeka, Venice
This was our first ten day cruise and we found the Riviera very comfortable and welcoming. The excursions arranged by Oceania were excellent, very well educated and well spoken guides. We learned so much from the excursions. The food in the Grand Dining room was just as good as any of the food in the special restaurants. We liked the option of being able to dine just as a couple most of the time. Being able to end every evening by listening to a string quartet was a special treat.

Carib Escape

| Naussau, San Juan, St. Lucia, St. Barts, St. Marteen
Great food and service. The only drawback was the average age of our fellow cruisers was 74.

Great cruise but not outstanding

| Caribbean Islands
If comparing Riviera to prior cruise a few years ago on Nautica, would have to say that Nautica overall was much better. Overall experience was good but would have to consider which ship to take if on another Oceania voyage

rating

| black and mediterranean seas
Had a wonderful cruise on the Black and Mediterranean Seas. Oceania was 5 stars all the way.

Caribbean Cruise March 5-15

| caribbean
recommended...yes, but not enthused......service, food and ports were very marginal, at best!!!

Glorious Greece & the Ionian passage

| Greece, Italy, Montenegro, Dubrovnik
I would recommend this itinerary as well as this cruise line!

Cruising with Riviera

| Spain and Portugal (Med. cruise)
This is my first experience with Oceania... overall I would highly recommend your company for the wonderful staff and service. However because of my experience with the long distance walks and lack of accommodation for seniors...I am not sure of repeat business.

A great experience!

| Rome to Venice
I brought twelve people from my company on this cruise. All of them were first time cruisers and were blown away by the Oceania experience. I have already booked a cruise for Fall of 2017.

Rivieras

| Italy; France and Spain
Poor staff service across the board; excessive anchoring and tendering ; disorganized; language difficulty; rather stingy with products eg one tote bag per room; destructive laundry service; etc.

A great cruise experience

| Bruge , Amsterdam , Copenhagen , Oslo ,Iceland
Each and every crew member went out of their way to provide excellent service .

Oceania Riviera,January 13-23, 2017

| Caribbean
Our only complaint was they really do not want to seat guests alone in main dining room. They insist you share a table and make a fuss if you also insist on sitting alone. Sometimes there are reasons why we want to be alone at dinner and they embarrass the guests while checking in for dinner. This happened often with us and many other guests. Otherwise the service and food in the main dining room was excellent.

Israel & Greek Islands

| Israel and Greece
The only bad thing was the internet access. It hardly ever worked and when it did it was not consistent and very slow. The entertainment could be better but it was ok.

Recap of our trip - Oceania Riviera

| Caribbean
Restaurants were excellent. Service was excellent as were accommodations. Staff was extremely helpful and friendly.

Relaxing Transatlantic

| Spain, Madeira, Bermuda. Nassau
Toscana and Red Ginger continue to be the best specialty restaurants on the ship but the Grand Dining room is also a favorite. Also it is nice having Happy Hour in several venues.

Oceania Montreal - Miami

| Fall Foilage cruise
This ship has just come out of refit and is beautiful appointed.

Recent cruise

| Columbia,caribbean
Hurrah for everything

A Fantastic Cruise

| Aruba, Bonaire, Grenada, St. Vincent, Martinique, St. Kitts, St. Barts
We had a wonderful time with our friends and were lucky to have good weather and calm seas. The only disappointment was having to by-pass Santa Marta, Colombia due to high winds. We appreciated the paid gratuities and cruise credits. All of the specialty restaurants were outstanding.

Director

| Adriatic (Venice to Rome)
Loved the informal nature of the ship, ability to meet people and have dinner with them as opposed to being assigned tables, and the overall customer service on the ship.

Oceania Riviera

| Athens to Barcelona
Oceania is a great cruise line for those that enjoy wonderful food and wine. The cabins and large and the beds are heavenly! O life is a good option as some of the shore excursions offered seemed a little pricey. The staff was great and always made you feel at home

Oceania Riviera Zaca Mesa tour (Portraits of Europe)

| Portugal, Spain, France, Italy
Very pretty ship with attentive crew. After the first couple of days the bartenders in Martini knew my name and drink preference (the guy with the big watch drinks Marker's Mark).The boutique could carry a few more "drugstore" items but it was pretty adequate. Overall we were very pleased with the ship and the crew.

Wonderful Surprise

| Caribbean
Service was first class........any problem was handled immediately. Other than the fact that it is not "all inclusive", if you only have a glass of wine with dinner, don't do the "free" shore excursions, especially in the Caribbean, it is the best bang for your buck!! Only thing that does not put them in the luxury category......................as I said before, food in the 4 restaurants is superior to any on Regent or Crystal.

Oceania Riviera

| Caribbean
This ship is a first class experience. The mid sized ship has all the features of the larger ships and less people. It is beautifully decorated. The crew was there to pamper and please and were actually happy to be doing their jobs. They live up to their tag line of the finest cuisine at sea. All the dining options were fabulous. All food at the buffet served to you. Kobe beef and lobster burgers at Waves grill were amazing. Dinner buffet was spectacular. Entertainment was very good... the resident troop of 12 were so talented. First rate shows. The fill in entertainment was also quite good. No problem with seating anywhere on the ship.

The most wonderful time.

| Monte Carlo to Barcelona
We had the most amazing time and met the greatest people from all parts of the world. The food was excellent and the dining experiences was the best. The excursions were the best you that we have ever experienced.

Oceania Riviera - Definitely a Foodie Cruise

| Sunny Charms Voyage - Great Stirrup Cay; San Juan, Puerto Rico; Philipsburg, St Maarten; St John's, Antigua; Castries, St. Lucia; Gustavia, St. Barts
If you are into Food & Wine this cruise line is for you!!

- There are 4 specialty restaurants (Steak house, Italian, French and Asian Fusion) with fantastic menus. All guests are guaranteed 1 dinner at each of these restaurants.

- The general dining areas had the same level of food quality & taste including in the Grand Dining Room, Terrace Cafe (lobster tails grilled to order every night) and Waves Pool Grill (surf & turf or the best reuben for lunch).

- For healthier options I enjoyed the smoothie and fresh juice bar as a lighter alternative for breakfast. While on-board the Oceania team was installing their new "plant-based" meal options on the lunch & dinner menus. These dishes were so tasty, you wouldn't have known they were meatless!!

- The best meals were at La Reserve. This specialty restaurant partnered with Wine Spectator & Dom Perignon & Jacque Pepin to create absolutely amazing meals! These meals all begin outside of the restaurant where guests lounge with a glass of bubbly or two along with a canape. The meals lasted 3 to 3 1/2 hours each with a maximum of 24 guests. The service and attention to detail from the culinary and dining team was very special. They made sure we always had enough wine available to sample with each bite! Would do these again on my next voyage!!

- "The Odyssey" was a wonderfully paired 7 course meal. Highlights included the biggest scallop I have ever seen seared with a teriyaki glaze, Maine lobster with a sea urchin bisque and veal wellington - all dishes worked really well with the wines presented. If you enjoy all types of wines (bubbly, sweet and dry white, along with red) you will enjoy this meal.

- The Don Perignon dinner was a 6 course meal of indulgence!! Grade 9 Waygu beef, blue lobster in a curry broth, gold leaf in a black truffle risotto and a mole sauce so complex served with scallop & foie gras... the food was amazing. Oh yes and the entire meal was paired with three different vintages of Don Perignon. While the wine & food pairings were not as strong as those in the Odyssey menu, I would not have changed anything with this experience.

- There are plenty of foodie activities not tied with meals! The Culinary Center teaches one or two 90 minute classes each day with topics ranging from pasta making to grilling to knife skills. You are paired up at cooking stations to learn hands on with the chef instructor. Bring your appetite as you get to eat what you make along the way!! There were culinary demos in the theater where we could watch the culinary team prepare some of our favorite restaurant dishes. And there is also many culinary excursions to pick from in port that included visiting local markets and cooking in a local kitchen - learning local dish recipes.

19 days of Paradice

| Venice to Barcelona and back Barcelona to Rome.
Wonderful, professional quality entertainment. The productions were the best we ever saw on a cruise. Superb staff. Each one was 5 star. Great food. The veranda stateroom had excellent closet space but tiny, useless drawers. Don't overpack! Otherwise I love this ship. The Marina too. The port of Zadar in Croatia should be replaced by Dubrovnik. More tours with only one to two hours of walking would be appreciated. Three stars for value because when cost of excursions, wine, Internet, spa, culinary class, and gratituities are added, the total is the same as Crystal and Regent. That being said, The Riveria or Marina are first in my heart.

Riviera experience.

| barcelona to Istanbul via provence, monaco, Italy, Greece
staff always willing to accommodate If meal not to your to your taste they took away and gladly brought another choice. Found this attitude in all areas.Staff very professional at the same time more relaxed than other line we have traveled

Beautiful ship and wonderful vacation!

| Greece and Turkey
Great vacation if you're looking for quality ports, high-end finishes, and best food!

Riviera

| St. Barts, Antigua, Nassau, St. Lucia, St. Kitts
I would definitely book Oceania again., Overall it was great

Athens

| Barcelona
Ate the first night in the Dining Room and was very disappointed. Did not go back. The Buffet was better and more consistent.

Great time!

| Spain, France and Italy
Wine selection was ok, but reasonably priced. Food was great. A lot of great food and wine related activities on ship. I wish I had more time to do those. Regular group tours were large (approx 40 people) which made it hard to hear the guide and get pictures (a little stressful for me). Small tours were great! Food and Wine program activities and excursion were great! The were informative, interesting and fun! Just as I had hoped. I didn't experience ship entertainment

Love the Riviera Oceania

| Caribbean
Would sail with them again. This was our 2nd trip. Food superb, choice of 4 great restaurants included in price. Country club casual dress. Very comfortable. Mattresses excellent.

Hart winery

| Spain, France, Italy
This was first cruise and travel outside US. It was Spectacular!

Civitavecchia to Venice cruise

| Sorrento, Taromina, Argostoli,Kotor, Zadar, Koper, Venice.
Toscana dining room has good food, lousy service. It is severely understaffed. We had an 8 PM reservation and didn't get bread and water till 8:50 PM. After we ordered wine,took wine steward 25 minutes to come back and tell us he was out of that vintage (with 5 days to go on the cruise!). Got wine at 9:15 PM. Sent my Osso Buco back cause it was too dry (after warning them when I ordered it). Disembarkation was amazingly orderly and prompt. We were at the Venice airport 35 minutes after leaving the ship! Worst port of call was Argostoli (Greek Island) boring--they need to replace it. Butler service for our Penthouse suite was extraordinary! Cruise more enjoyable and informative because of butler. Entertainment on ship was mediocre, bordering on amateurish. Chef Kelly and culinary staff are amazing! Recommend their excursions in Taromina, Sicily and Koper, Slovenia.

Heart of the Caribbean

| 7 Caribbean ports
We wrote in Oceania's evaluation form, that we'd had a disappointing meal in the Polo Grill--steak, fish, and salad very below par. But had a splendid meal in Red Ginger. Did not get to eat in the other 2 restaurants because of time problem one night and illness another.

Overall wonderful!

| Carribean
Crew was the best!

Way below expectation

| Mediterranean
Best cabin attendants and wait helps in all restaurants. Food wise, Jacque's and Toscana are excellent, same as Terrace and Wave Grill. Red Ginger and Polo need to upgrade on the food. The biggest sin is La Reserve where they charge $165 pp for food and wine dinner. I walked out midway simply because the food was so poorly prepared, although nicely plated, but carried no taste nor texture. Wines did nothing to bring dinner pleasure. Whoever planned this must go back to culinary school for another education. By far the most disappointing meal in my life and I hated myself for believing "online reviews". Avoid this place.

Wiser review

| Barcelona,Alicante,Almeria,Gibraltar,Casblanca,Seville,Lisbon
Alicante was a beach day for us. We chose an excursion 1 1/2 hrs away and we could have stayed near port (Walked there)at a public beach. Almeria was a pleasant stop. Gibraltar was great. Definitely worth seeing the top of the Rock and St Michaels cave and Siege tunnels. Casablanca is an armpit!! Don't know why we stopped there. Lots of things closed due to Ramadan. Very dirty city. So dirty when we returned to the ship they had mats drenched with sanitizer to clean our shoes as we walked to board and hand sanitizer st hat they insisted we use before boarding. Glad they were being safe, but why even stop there then. Loved Seville. We did a day on our own there. Very easy city to get around. Great day. Would go there again. Lisbon was a fun city too. People were friendly lots to see and do there. We enjoyed the social life due to the euafa 2016 cup Portugal vs France. It was a massive celebration and fun to be a part of. I recommend this ship if you're a foodie and have done your research on ports. If your looking for night life this is not the cruiseline for you. Also there are speciality restaurants on board. Book them early before you go. They book up fast and are worth it. There is a cooking school that I have attended classes. Very fun. Also the La Reserve wine pairing dinners are fantastic and very fun.

Canary Islands

| canary Islands
Overall a splendid trip.The ports were varied and Tangier was a disappointment. Perhaps Fez might have been better? Seville and Maderia and Lanzarote were my favourites.Next time I would choose my own flight details as My trip was lengthier than needed. Others had difficulty from Vancouver Island as well.

February, 2017, Riviera Cruise

| Miami, SanJuan, Antigua, Martinique, Grenada, Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Barts
The Ship's officers and crew were extremely professional and courteous. The cruise director and assistant were very pleasant and helpful, as was John Ekin, the social director. Having been on so many previous Caribbean cruises, we didn't take any shore excursions, but our traveling companions did and had some uncomfortable experiences. We weren't very impressed with Grenada. However, to be fair, St. Barts is the only island of all W.I. ports which is attractive to us. Just can't beat the Caribbean weather. Last year both my wife and I signed up for the VIP liquor packages, but this year only she did. I think the package is too expensive, and I'm glad I didn't take it this year.

First Oceania cruise

| Mediterranean
The ship size was perfect and easy to navigate. The decor is very pleasing and the beds were super comfortable! The staff were attentive and very personable.

Caribbean

| Caribbean
Wonderful restful holiday.

First Class Cruising

| Athens, Sicily, Sorrento, Rome, Florence, Monte Carlo, Provence, Barcelona
We booked this cruise for our 25th wedding anniversary. It was the perfect getaway for our special occasion.The ship was absolutely beautiful and the specialty restaurants were great!!! This was a trip of a lifetime we will never forget!!!

Regal Riviera

| Barcelona to Rome
The entire experience; including the beautiful staterooms, the friendly and efficient staff, 5-star dining, superb entertainment, and great ports of call made this sailing one to remember.

Dream Boat

| Mediterranean
One of the most amazing experiences we have ever had. We were treated like royalty - the staff was amazing. The ship was gorgeous. The food was amazing!!

Outstanding specialty restaurants

| Spain, Italy, France, Portugal
Overall a wonderful cruise. Ports were great other than Alicante. Needed more time in Lisbon. All else was fantastic!

Great experience - no excursions needed

| Santorini, Rhodes, Kusadasi, Mykanos, Kavala, Istanbul
Great experience overall- relaxed staff- very attentive and helpful-clearly understanding their purpose and the purpose of the cruise being for enjoyment. Did not have any negative experiences with rules and policies as we have had on other cruise lines. Really enjoyed being able to purchase local wines/liquors on the islands and enjoy them from the room balcony. Beautiful ship- nice spaces like a library with an expresso bar and great views and a lounge on the 15th floor where afternoon tea is served with amazing cakes,scones, etc and a string quartet playing. Nice itinerary. We were able to easily access taxis for independent tours at about 1/4 the cost of excursions and even a bus at Kavala to tour Phillipi on our own for a total of 5 euros plus the site admission fee. We did rent a car on Santorini for 50 euros- great way to get to all the archeologic sites and beaches and still have time to walk the streets of Fira after turning in the car. More than saving money, we enjoy being independent at the sites rather than traveling at a group pace ( and having to wait for everyone to clear out to see...) And we were able to do and see so much more like stopping at the red beach overview and walking along Kamari's black beach with gelato in between the acheologic sites. The only complaints we heard from others on the cruise were about the excursions (poor guides, poor choices of sites to see, taking too long at a few places so time limited to see other things...) We did not do a single Oceania excursion and saw more for much less at every port. It does take learning about the destinations ahead of time and being able to walk away from the closest options to the pier (where everything is more expensive). I do realize that some people prefer to not have to do any planning or thinking themselves while on vacation so the excursions are good for them. However for people who enjoy exploring and getting the most out of a destination, doing it independently on this itinerary is doable and very enjoyable.

5th Oceania Cruise

| BVI, Antigua, Barbados, St. Lucia, St Maarten
Dr Ford, the lecturer was terrific, the last minute change in port due to a medical emergency was unfortunate, but (again) not Oceania's fault, everything else was up to the lines high standard.

Rome to Monte Carlo

| Rome to Monte Carlo
Riviera is a great ship and overall the crew was fantastic. We were very satisfied for our first cruise!

Great times on our Oceania Cruise

| Italy, Croatia, Montenegro, Greece
The Riviera is a nice ship, great ports. We enjoyed most of our excursions, the culinary related tours were special. One of our favorite spots was Barista’s then enjoying our beverage in the Library. The specialty restaurants were great! The food was very good. Nice staff.

Riviera Oceania Cruise to the Caribbean

| all were abominable! Trujillo, Hondouras, Belize, Cozumel, Key West.
Thanks for taking the time to work through the possibilities. e chose the right cruise line for our group. The ship itself was beautiful; the quality of the decor.....fabrics, woodworking, carpeting, art work, all were worthy of high compliments. Staff had received fine training, and it showed. They were courteous, almost to a fault. This is one place where "the customer is always right" is actually being lived today. My entire group was full of praise for your attentive service; your follow-up phone calls, your patience through questions, questions, questions. You got the #1 travel agent award !!!! 

Trip of a lifetime!

| Mediterranean - Italy, Spain and France
I love, love, love this cruise line! I felt like a queen and whenever I needed something or had a question, it was delivered with promptness and with a smile. We will probably not use any other cruise line as Oceania spoiled us!

Cast Off With The Best

| Mediterranean
Elegant, beautiful cruise. Top notch!

What a Ship!

| St. Bart's, Tortola, St. John's, etc.
Great ship, service and food!

Excursions and Riviera reception staff

| Mayan Mystique
Too much time for "shopping" at a location where there was no place to shop at the Glass-bottom Semi-sub excursion in Honduras. Lunch served for the Xunantunich Mayan Ruins excursion in Belize was below expectation - very mediocre. 

Beautiful ship, efficient and friendly crew

| Lisbon, Huelva, Alicante, Barcelona, Mallorca, St. Tropez, Monte Carlo, Portofino, Livorno, Rome
This was our first cruise. The crew could not have been friendlier or more helpful, the accommodations were clean & beautifully maintained. Excellent restaurants, delicious food, good wine lists. If I were to cruise again, I would look harder at the itinerary, & choose one that had no anchorages; the tenders were very difficult for me. And, if we do cruise again, it will probably be in low season. We are used to immersing ourselves in a destination when we travel; the cruise provides only a taste of a destination, making the experience somewhat incomplete. Most of the ship's on-board activities held no interest for us, although, if we were to cruise again, we would probably sign up for cooking classes.

Great Transatlantic crossing Barcelona to Miami

| Transatlantic crossing Barcelona to Miami
Oceania Riviera has something for everyone. There is plenty of room to relax in the library or other public rooms, play trivia, take a dance or yoga class. Learn how to make pasta in the Culinary Center. Listen to lectures or play bridge. There are so many dining options to choose from. Red Ginger (Asian), Polo Grill(steak and Lobster), Jacques(French), Toscana (Italian) as well as the Grand dining room with daily specials. Do not forget your specialty coffee in Baristas on deck 14. There is so much to see and do and the longer itineraries allow you to enjoy it all.

Greek Island fantasy

| Istanbull , Santorini ,Corfu, Montenegro , Croatia ,Italy
Friendly service from state room steward to cruise director and all in between, the most hospitable I have ever cruised with.

feb. 2018 cruise

| puerto rico. nassau, St Lucia, St. Barts, Antiqua
outstanding trip and ship was great.

Carribean Trip

| Carribean
Very nice experience. Too many ports required tenders and the seas were too rough for the tenders

Signature Host

| Caribbean
Would rate this sailing a 4 star

Promenades & Palaces Mediterranean Cruise

| Italy, Montenegro, Croatia, Malta, Sicily, France, Monaco, Spain
Would have enjoyed more dance classes and maybe the afternoon tea to start a little earlier (maybe 2-3 pm). It was a little late in the afternoon and right before dinner. The shore tour guides should all be equipped with those walking mics and headsets so everyone on tour can hear. I was disappointed that several places of interest were closed on the Sunday and Monday tours.

Crossing Cruise

| Miami to Barcelona, Atlantic Crossing
Beautiful Ship, amazing staff, best food at sea!

Riviera

| greece
none

Barcelona to Rome Cruise

| Spain, Mallorca, France, Monaco & Italy
This was my first cruise. In general, my expectations were exceeded and I would recommend Oceania Cruises to others.

Athens to Athens

| Greece
Needed another day in Jerusalem. So much to see and not enough days there.

Western Caribbean cruise review

| Western Caribbean
Overall a great trip Very organized and well run Cost of the excursions expensive for what you got

True to its name

| Great Stirrup Cay, St. Barts, St. Lucia, St. Martin & San Juan
The cuisine was out of this world and the speciality dining experience was world class. The suite was well appointed with very luxurious bedding and pillows. The bath tub and the décor was fabulous. The TV is very small and does not offer on demand movies. The toiletries were Bulgari so perhaps quite expensive, so the cabin steward did not give enough or replace them. He also forgot to give "beach towels" no matter how many times you ask. The "host" at the Jacques restaurant was very rude, and so was the waiter.

Love the Riviera

| Italy, and the Mediterranean
As you can see, we love Oceania and most especially the Riviera. We are always made to feel welcomed and appreciated.

An Enjoyable Getaway

| Various islands in Eastern Caribbean
From the moment we arrived at the port to the moment we disembarked, we were treated like royalty. Beginning with the greeting at the terminal, followed by finding our cabin, and entering and laying down our personal items, there was a knock at the door. Upon opening there were two fine gentlemen, our Cabin Steward (Francis) and his Assistant, who immediately introduced themselves and told us to not hesitate to call upon them if they could be of service. An hour later, the luggage arrived and "Francis" was there and called us both by name and brought our luggage in for us. We went upstairs to have a bite to eat, greeted very warmly by the staff on duty, food was delicious, and upon getting back down to the 8th deck, again we saw "Francis". He said "good afternoon Mr and Mrs. Lyon". He called us by name every day, no matter where we saw him. He is a jewel! Upon leaving the cruise, he came to tell us how much he enjoyed being of service and hoped that we would again be on his ship for another cruise. This man is happy with his job (at least he portrays it to the guests). Everyone went out of their way to insure a happy voyage, and they were successful in their endeavor. Really hated to disembark because of your staff

Oceania - Riviera Cruise

| Portugal, Spain, France, Italy
Overall wonderful experience. Exceeded expectations. Have only done river cruises in the past. A bit wary of larger ship. But shouldnt have been concerned. This size ship still offers personal service and attention to detail that we had learned to appreciate on the smaller river ships.

Loved, Loved, Loved!

| Mediterranean
We enjoyed it so much and will miss everything!

Oceania

| Several
Trips on shore need improvement. Lots of time doing nothing.

Celebrate the Sunshine

| Caribbean
The Riviera was beautiful. The ship offered four specialty restaurants which did not charge a fee. Reservations were required. Besides the main dining room, there was a casual restaurant which served buffet style. I was surprised to view how casual some of the guests dressed to eat in the casual dining area. There were a variety of activities during the day, both of sea days and while in port. The shows began at 930pm which was late for the passengers dining early. Several passengers remarked on the hour the shows began and wished they were earlier. The staff was extremely outgoing and courteous at all times. Shawn Carter, the cruise director was visible all day and evening and did a great job.  

Amazing Riviera

| New York, Newport, Boston, Bar Harbor, St John, Sydney, Halifax, Charlottetown, Quebec City and Montreal.
It was a wonderful cruise with excellent service and delicious food. The buffet offered delicious seafood and the specialty restaurants provided gourmet cuisine and extraordinary attention. Our excursions were full of history and cultural information. We highly recommend the concierge level with a special lounge and daily treats and room service.

Sophisticated and elegant Riviera to debut in May 2012!
