10 Night Islands In The Sun (Miami Roundtrip)

Sail date: January 13, 2017

Ship: Riviera

Cabin type: Suite

Cabin number: 11007

Traveled as: Couple

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Review summary

Best new discovery on the ship (our second time in a row) is deck 12 Terrace restaurant at night.  Better (buffet) than the grand ballroom on deck five, or any of the specialty restaurants, other than Red Ginger, which is super.


At the buffet you have wonderful sushi, steak and lobster, pasta, meat or fowl fresh carved.  And not many people realize that it's available.  Most, like us previously, automatically went down to big restaurant if not in specialty.


the Riviera is a good, if not great, cruise experience.  BTW, the casino dealers were very friendly.

Most of entertainment was average at best. Recent Regent cruise (in summer of 2016, was far superior
