Riviera, one of Oceania Cruises’ lavish Oceania-class ships, is an intimate experience with designer touches throughout and luxury at every turn. Built in 2012 and refurbished in 2015, this 785-ft ship was designed to be special and distinctive – the breathtaking Lalique Grand Staircase is just the beginning. There are plenty of cruises to choose from on this ship, including the seven-night European Serenade, from Rome to Venice, or the 29-night Seas of Inspiration, from London to New York. Destinations range from Venice and Monte Carlo to Miami and Barcelona. Many great onshore excursions are offered, whether it is a culinary tour in Tangier, Morocco, or exploring the Royal Naval Dockyard in Bermuda. The Riviera carries 1,250 guests and a crew of 800, ensuring a highly personalized experience. An ideal ship for couples, there are a number of different staterooms and suites to choose from. The Inside Stateroom is the most cost-efficient option, yet still offers extra touches such as thick cotton robes and slippers, a flat-screen television, and mini-bar. Guests staying in a suite can expect exceptional butler service, with everything from complimentary garment pressing to course-by-course in-suite dining. There are 13 food and dining options, including restaurants, cafes, bars, and lounges, as well as a coffee bar, afternoon tea, and an exclusive, private dining venue. Entertainment features include informative guest lectures, a casino, spa, pool, tribute shows, and musical performances such as a live pianist or classical string quartet.
