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.

Mediterranean cruise beautiful

Loved this cruise, however it was very hectic if you want to see all the towns and surrounding areas of the ports you stop at, would go again since the cost is so beautiful

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

Relaxing in every way.

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.

NOT WORTH THE MONEY!

Apr 5th, 2019

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!

Fantastic food

Apr 5th, 2019

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.
