Nothing to complain about here.... by janjanAZ

Sail date: /
Ship: Riviera

Nothing to complain about here. Such a relaxing 10 days, we weren’t ready to disembark. Food was excellent everywhere. One miss on a lamb dish but that was the only negative. Even the buffet was incredible. I’ve never been keen on ship entertainment and really feel like it should be done away with, but we went to three of the many shows and were VERY pleased. Ship didn’t feel crowded. Always able to get into spa, a spot at the pool or pool bar, and never a wait at the barista! By the way, do not miss the barista’s Iced Coffee Crema!

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

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Riviera / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

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.

Excellent Trans-Atlantic crossing. by blakesaway

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Riviera / Destination: Transatlantic

A very good experience, only criticism is that the free WiFi is accessible for one device only at any one time, so with 4 devices between us, had to keep logging on and off which was very irritating. The spa deck, available to suite and concierge passengers does not have deck hands to help move heavy sun beds, but is a very quiet and restful location.

Relaxing cruise with great staff throughout the ship. by tbrusse

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Riviera / Destination: Caribbean

We specifically chose this cruise because of a previous cruise on Oceania Sirena and the wonderful cuisine we experienced. This cruise was very much a disappointment, as far as the cuisine was concerned. I would not recommend the Riviera for their cuisine. The staff are excellent and the ship is a beautiful ship. Jacque Pepin would be appalled if he ever visited and tried eating the meals that were presented in the GDR.

Ship: Riviera / Destination: Caribbean

Like the title says, 10 days of relaxation. There is nothing outstanding about the shore excursions. There is everything to say about the staff and services. Outstanding!!! Food and ambiance beyond good.

I would rate this ship and its services at the top of the list. Oceania is one of the best Cruises ever We have been on over 20 Cruises We did a reattestation of our Marriage Vows for our Anniverary---it was beautiful. Lisa Rooney( Social Director for the Ship) handled everything----I cannot praise her enough !!!!

Sailed from Rome to Monte Carlo and it was 1st class all the way. From the food, service, cleanliness and excellent staff we were catered to each and every day. We will definitely be cruising with Oceania again. Trip of a lifetime!

This was a great vacation, we seen a lot and took a lot of tours that kept us very busy, the only week spot was the ships internet service, every thing else was more than we expected for this level of cruising .

An excellent overall experience by nx7u

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Riviera / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

First cruise for my partner. Her comment: "every day is like two days. First you go out and visit a place, then you come back and party all night". We will sail Oceania again, but it will probably be a few years. Our objective was to see several Italian spots we hadn't been too, and Greece/Monte Carlo were bonuses. But our general style is to go someplace for 10 days and live there.

Sailed Rome to Venice then... by mswoody

Sail date: /
Ship: Riviera

Sailed Rome to Venice then onto Athens on Riviera. Wonderful ship. Great food. Entertainment each night by ships entertainers plus plenty of external entertainers on alternate nights. Had a balcony suite, mid ship. Missed on two ports, Sorrento and Mykonos because of bad weather, both supposedly tender days. Enjoyed pool time instead as weather exceptional in this part of the world. Thoroughly recommend any Oceania ship. Mostly middle aged guests, kids not encouraged nor catered for.

A Beautiful Adriatic Interlude! by DJL24

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Riviera / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

Everything was made very simple by the cruise line and our travel agent. A wonderful and unforgettable experience! We were often frustrated by the Internet connection, occasionally desired some between meal snacks, and did not pay close enough attention to when the ship's boutiques were operational so we missed out on purchasing some clothing items that we wanted. They are closed while the ship is in port. Otherwise, everything about the cruise creates a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. The room refrigerator was always well-stocked and there was always plenty of drinking water. Comfort and cleanliness are a priority for me and my expectations were exceeded.

Interesting itinerary, disappointing on-board experience by kevsuec

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Riviera / Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean

I don't know if it is just this particular sailing, but this ship is not for the under 55 crowd. I knew from the passenger profile, that it wasn't for the young, but was surprised to see how elderly most people were. No interesting on-board activities or entertainment. The staff in general, did not seem too eager to please. Had better experience in other cruise ships, so it is not likely that my husband and I will return to Oceania.
