Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Cabin: 11007

This was our first cruise on Riviera .  Stayed in 11007.  All good and the exec suite was very useful.  Ruth, our 11th floor concierge, was terrific.


Service and personnel was usually very good, with great attitude.  Food was ok, but specialty restaurants were first rate, especially Red Ginger and Jacques.


I would not do the same itinerary again.  The Western carib as some uninteresting ports.


The spa is outstanding.  If you are on decks 10 or 11 or 12 go to the private sunbathing and huge hot tub on the bow. 


We liked the ship and experience enough that we have re-booked for next January doing the southern Caribe.


Biggest disappointment was the ship entertainment.  Oceania needs to get better singers/dancers/choreography.  Most shows were not well done.  Out of at least 5 we went to, only 2 would get a B , the others c-.
