Riviera is an absolutely stunning ship! Fantastic service, public rooms, and overall ship. Dining... WOW! Best food I’ve ever had at sea. Whether it’s room service, main lido buffet, dining room, or the specialty restaurants everything is absolutely delicious and made to order. 10/10

Storm causes itinerary adjustment

Nov 29th, 2018

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!

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

Oct 26th, 2018

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.

Fabulous Mediterranean Cruise

Oct 26th, 2018

Fabulous time with long term friends and new friends. Would recommend Oceana if you want a quieter more relaxing cruise. Definitely worth the extra cost. I'd avoid their shore excursions and book your own private ones--especially if there are 4 or more people traveling together.

Amazing Mediterrean Voyage

Oct 17th, 2018

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!

Great food. Great service. Love the penthouse suite & Butler. But entertainment is below average. Nothing much to entertain you, unless you like a very quiet and peace.

Great food. Poor & lack of entertainment. Room is outdated but clean. Good service.

Trip of a lifetime!

It would have been best to arrive 3 days early in Rome to truly explore the city. Again add a few days at the end for the same reason.

ship was quiet most times. Very little activity. Relaxing. No problem getting chairs at pool. Some ports not really worth getting off ship
