Regal Princess

August 2016 - Regal Princess to Europe - Northern Europe

It is what it is

It is a place to unpack your stuff and visit many ports; places you might otherwise have not visited.  Food was good, not great or exceptional, but they feed 5000 people per day. You can always find something. Cooked meat preparation might be better than even Oceania Cruises.  Boat design lacking in that there is no deck level that you can walk all the way around the ship.  To get to the front of the ship, to see what is in front of you (or where you are heading) is not possible unless you pay an extra daily fee of $70 to $130 per couple to get into the 'The Sanctuary'. Stuffy air in elevators. We were upgraded to a suite amenities balcony which included dingy grey towels with no fluff, tiny bathroom, shower that poorly drained, heating and ventilation system which did not work but had a comfortable bed.  Cruise director Martin was wonderful.  They are constantly selling something on the ship and if employees do a poor job upselling you, their contracts are not renewed. They cater well to repeat customers.  We never met anyone who liked the free coffee....... but you can buy coffee for $3 and up at the international Café.

Riviera

October 2015 - Riviera to Europe - Mediterranean

Food Experience is greatly improved

We almost decided not to cruise again with Oceania, after our disappointment last year with the quality of the food served. Instead of going into details about last year, I would like to report that the dining experience is greatly improved.  The quality of the meat, and its' preparation is greatly improved. The servers in all restaurants except for the Waves Grill, are better prepared and more knowledgeable.

igorzak's Tips

Sorrento, Italy - Instead of going to Pompeii, go to the museum in Naples to check out all that was looted during the excavations.
Riviera Riviera - If interested in La Reserve dining, inquire on your first day as to which day (which only day) they may offer that option. The quality of their wines by the glass is far less than they charge for them. Next time we will bring our own wine and pay corkage fees. Seek out Cruise Director Ray Michaels
