Loved the ship. Going back to the Caribbean for the 15 th time was boring. Not much to do after show time.

Dissapointing

Dec 24th, 2019

Was so excited as we heard Oceania was a "Luxury" cruise. Staff unhelpful and cold. Anything you asked for was an issue. One day someone took the plant out of their room and put it in the hallway, it sat there all day, feel over and dirt all over the hallway from 8am to 7 pm until I finally went and got the concierge. Specialty restaurants food was amazing, service was awful except Toscana, they were great. Every restaurant we were seated and I had to get up after 5 minutes and ask for a waiter. Red Ginger we had a table reserved for 2, met some people asked to make it a 4 and request "denied". They all said we are very busy on 7 day sailings, then dont do 7 day sailings if you cant accommodate. One girl Ana who was a hostess in Jacques was a huge help. My wife had a diet request, upon boarding we asked for the restaurant manager twice or food and beverage, never called us. Asked Ana and she had it taken care of in 5 minutes. The food and beverage manager did call the second to last night after speaking with the concierege and his response was I didnt get any message and your request was taken care of so whats the problem????? Well it was the 5th day. The service didnt compare to Azamara or NCL in the Haven. I think Oceania does themselves a disservice and brings their brand down with this sailing. Everyones excuse is this is a short sailing and its the Caribbean so dont expect much

Wonderful Montreal to New York Cruise

Oct 26th, 2019

Very elegant classy ship, very good restaurants and choice of style of cooking. Not the most lively of cruises, only one entertainment going on at any one time. It did feel that they were struggling to find things of interest in some ports. This was a trip to see the autumn flora but the ship sailed mostly at night so little opportunity to see from the ship. All that said we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was less of a traditional "cruise" experience and more like an up market floating hotel.

Very interesting Northern Allure cruise

Sep 25th, 2019

The cruise was very interesting and the Riviera was excellent. As always, food was superb and accommodations very comfortable. Anywhere you go on Oceania will be a great experience. Be prepared for expensive tours - they were well done but the Shipmate tours were also very good.

Europe was Great! But, the ship, Oceania Riviera was not, this time.

Sep 13th, 2019

Europe was my greatest experience But Oceania Riviera dropped the ball on their Culinary this time. I was very shocked since my last experience on this ship was on January 2019 and the food was amazing. Sorry, but I have to be honest.

A Perfect Cruise for First Timers

Jul 21st, 2019

As first time cruisers we had no expectations or experiences to base our trip on. That said, I don't think we could have found a better ship/crew combo to start our cruising journey with. Oceania and the Riviera made our trip completely problem free and enjoyable. We had a great time and look forward to joining one of their ships again sometime soon.
