Review summary

I truly enjoyed the Oceania Riviera.  The Oceania Suite is absolutely amazing as was the Penthouse suite, and then we had the standard balcony that was perfect for us on a more budget friendly basis (had access though to all these cabins with friends we were traveling with).  The food was the best at Sea, not only just the specialty restaurants (Red Ginger being my Fav) but also the Grand Dining room was just as good.   The staff was always available, hardly ever could sit without someone asking you if you needed anything.  Seemed to always be deck chairs available around the pool equipped with clean towels at all times.   This ship was perfect for us, not to big and not to small.  Must mention the upgraded premium economy air promotion was also an absolute plus!!

Cabin / Stateroom

The cabin was big enough for the two of use although I liked our friends suites with the walk in closets was my biggest drawback of our cabin. We were able to order room service anytime we wanted and had my coffee delivered promptly each morning.

Zakynthos, Greece

we were going to see the Blue Caves but it was canceled due to rough seas, so we just found ourselves a wonderful beach and enjoyed the day.

Corfu, Greece

took the cave tour and the ride was beautiful as well as the area we visited. was a bit disappointed that they are not really caves, but it was still very scenic.

Kotor, Montenegro

5 out of 5
Wow...just such a beautiful place. Make sure to get up early so that you can see the scenery as you cruise down the fjord to get to Kotor. Also, dont forget to stop and try the "Black Wine" yum

Dubrovnik, Croatia

5 out of 5
Yet again another beautiful place. We took the tour to the Seaside resort of Budva and then had some free time so sat at a table on the beach for a "croatian beer" and still had plenty of time to walk around Dubrovnik before having to get back on the ship.

Koper, Slovenia
