Overview

Oceania Riviera launched in 2012. Similar to sister ship Marina, Riviera can accommodate 800 crew members and 1,250 passengers, maintaining the line's signature luxury service. Past cruisers applauded the friendly staff, and added that the ship's limited capacity ensured that the vessel never felt crowded. 

The ship also features larger staterooms compared to Oceania's older ships. Cabin choices include compact Inside staterooms (174 square feet), Ocean View and Veranda staterooms as well as Suites that range from 420 to 2,000 square feet. All cabins include minibars, flat-screen TVs and full-size bathtubs. Those who splurge on a suite receive perks like priority embarkation and 24-hour butler service.

When it's time for a meal, cruisers can choose from eight dining options, including spots exclusive to Riviera and Marina: Jacques (serving French fare) and Red Ginger (offering Asian-focused dishes). Bar and lounge options are also varied, with specialty spots mixing martinis, offering wine tastings and serving poolside cocktails. Other pursuits available on the ship include treatments at the Canyon Ranch SpaClub, painting at the Artist Loft and cooking classes at the Bon Appétit Culinary Center. With amenities and organized events geared toward older cruisers, Riviera isn't a great choice for those traveling with children.
