When you board the Oceania Riviera you immediately are in awe of how beautiful this ship is – from the magnificent pieces of artwork, to the design of the atrium with the crystal vase at the bottom of the staircase. Yet there is an immediate feeling of comfort, relaxation of being onboard your home away from home
The service and food quality really set this ship apart. You can make reservations at their speciality restaurants including the famous Jacques with no cover charge as in other cruise lines. The open-seating dining policy makes it easy for you to get to know other travelers during dinner.
The stateroom with its earthtone colors, fabrics and tranquility bed creates an atmosphere of comfort and beauty. We were in a Concierge stateroom which also provided us with access to the Concierge lounge providing 24 hour water, coffee, soft drinks, snacks anytime during the day. We also received unlimited access to Canyon Ranch SpaClub® private Spa Terrace which we loved.
There was great entertainment onboard and we loved participating in the lectures onboard as well as cooking classes in the Culinary Centre.
Disembarking in the beautiful places along the Italian and French Rivera such as Portifino, Amalfi, St. Tropez was seamless and we felt we had lots of time exploring.
In summary, the experience both onboard Oceania Riviera and the ports of call provided some beautiful memories and new experiences.
