Relaxing in every way. by MysticWhaler

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The Atlantic crossing was an amazing way to relax and decompress. We used the sea days to catch up on our sleep, but we were never board. The cooking lessons and cooking demonstrations are particularly excellent on this size ship.

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The Oceania Riviera ship & crew put a smile on our faces front the moment we stepped on board to the day we stepped off! Outstanding

First Class.....a great experience by jbirdsallonbi

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Enjoyed everything......hard to imagine how it could be improved very much. Oceania seems to think of almost everything to make the experience great

Fantastic food by schadler30

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

This was my 17th cruise, but first on Oceania. I may be spoiled, but I liked my experience with Viking and Crystal better because they were all inclusive; whereas Oceania found additional things to charge for. Oceania's "free" week of WiFi was frustratingly hard to access and then very slow. Their communication was poor. We were given different information depending on who we asked. Aside from that, it was a wonderful cruise.

NOT WORTH THE MONEY! by slaintemcdole

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I BOOKED THIS CRUISE TO SEE HAVANA AND TO VISIT TIKAL(IT'S PIC IS IN THE BROCHERE}. IT WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH BETTER IF I HAD DONE HAVANA ON MY OWN , I HAVE BEEN HERE BEFORE. TIKAL WAS NOT AN OPTION SINCE IT IS 12 HOURS AWAY. USING THE TENDER SERVICE WAS A MISERABLE EXPERIENCE. WE WERE PACKED IN LIKE SARDINES. I COULDN'T EVEN MOVE MY FOOT. HORRIBLE!

Great cruise on a great ship by philzo

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Everything about Oceania and Riviera is excellent. Oceania is probably our favorite line (23 cruises on 9 different lines). The only complaint is the pricing of wine in the dining room, but this is a complaint that fits most if not all lines. The same wine that cost between $50 and $60 with gratuity on the ship can be bought in our grocery store for $16. Signed up for an unspecified future cruise to get discount but didn't receive the certificate and two weeks after enquiring by email Oceania still hasn't solved the missing certificate. IE, don't wait until the last day to sign up for a future cruise.

Storm causes itinerary adjustment by Goddessws

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Besides skipping the Canary Islands, which was disappointing, but necessary, Nassau is a horrible stop. The original itinerary said Stirrup Cay. Otherwise the cruise was fantastic, Oceania is a top notch cruise line, ship is phenomenal, meals, service, everything just fantastic! Because of the extra days at sea (8 in a row on our first transatlantic cruise!), the staff and crew provided lots of extra activities ans entertainment, which was much appreciated!

Wonderful ship. Handled the rough seas very well. by ybglum

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

A real pleasure, great friendly staff. wonderful service. Food choice with the specialty restaurants was a treasure. On board activities were somewhat sparse and with a day at sea the day became very long.

Beautiful Cruise by sharbrian

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We enjoyed our cruise immensely. The service in the restaurants, room, embarkation and debarkation in every port was amazing. For a Greek cruise, we were a little disappointed that more Indian cuisine was offered in the main dining room than any Greek cuisine! We are not fans of buffets for dinner, so we did not go to the buffet Greek dinners.

Amazing Mediterrean Voyage by LoveOceania

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This cruise was a total delight. The ports of call were the primary reason we selected this particular cruise line and the Ancient Vignettes itinerary and we were not disappointed in any way. Oceania knows how to take care of its passengers in a first class manner. Everything went like clockwork as far the planning and execution of excursions. It would have been nice if some of the excursions were started later in the day, but we realize that to a large extent, the timing is dictated by the port and scheduled departures to the next port. The food is excellent and the crew is totally customer oriented. Bravo Oceania!

Two Thumbs Up! by RickyRicardo

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our 1st Oceania cruise and we loved it. The ship was much smaller than we have sailed on in the past and I liked it. Our balcony stateroom was spacious and well appointed. Lastly, the food was excellent. My wife must have a gluten free diet and she ate like a queen. She claimed they have the best GF bread she has ever tasted. We took the wine with dinner package which was great for us. On a downside, the nightly entertainment is truly lacking. Two nights they had a concert pianist and another a flute player. They also had 2 movie nights which no one attended (no surprise there!).

Loved the Greek islands by rasmussenspi

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Beautiful stops, but many were overcrowded so traveling in Sept/Oct might be better than July. We used the Oceania excursions in most ports and the tour guides were excellent. Cavtat was a beautiful harbor and Rhodes was less crowded with great shopping. We were surprised to learn about the way the grapes grow in Santorini and the white wine was quite good.

Good itinerary. Nice ship. Poor communications and information in arranging cruise and onboard. by Cruiser88015563

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Itinerary was good. Food was fair. Communication was poor. Only found out after beginning the cruise that we could dine in specialty restrauants without up charge. By then all of the reasonable dining times were taken. Destinations staff does not have maps and information of the next port until after the ship docks there. It makes it virtually impossible, for example, to try to plan a short morning visit into the port and get back for your afternoon excursion. Typically, at 10:00 AM, there is a frenzied crowd surrounding the Concierge/Destinations desk seeing the hand out maps just brought on board, Dozens of clients all trying to ask the single concierge handing the maps out, “how do I get to....” It was incomprehensible that a “first class cruise line” would not have the next day’s city Information available at least the evening before. State room was nice. The ship seemed well maintained and one did not feel as though there were 1000-1200 passengers on board.
