The clean staff in the cabin we were in we're very slapdash with how they cleaned. In the restaurant I ordered a Chenin blanc and got a Chardonnay . We ordered tartar sauce to go with lobster and got tomato sauce. I ordered a Zinfandel rose and was given a dry French rose. When I questioned the waiter he said, oh do you not like dry!

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2nd Oceania cruise. Positives far outweigh any shortfalls. The itinerary took us to some lovely locations where we could go ashore under our own steam & explore, (Marseille, Sorrento, Valleta, Santorini & Rhodes in particular). There were back to back port stops for Florence & Rome, which is a lot to take on over consecutive days. We had an inside cabin which suited our purposes. OK, you don't have a view, but it's a hotel room when all said & done. The food was excellent, particularly the 4 specialty restaurants (which we could each use once on our inside cabin grade). The Terrace Grill was our preferred eating location over the main dining room. Unlike typical ship buffets, staff are on hand to personally serve up all dishes, so there's no mad self service scrum and it maintains good hygiene. The grill was particularly popular, with a range of fresh fish & steaks cooked to order. When you're served, the outside terrace is a wonderful spot to sit out for breakfast or lunch when the weather is fine. Across all the departments, the staff were friendly and very attentive. They certainly added to the good vibe on the ship. The Olife options worked really well. In addition to the inclusive soft drinks & coffee, we had the beer/wine drinks with meals package, which we found more than adequate. A little on board spend covered the other ancillary expenses. The much criticised wi-fi is much better than it used to be, (I think they've put signal boosters round the ship?). We never had an issue with it. What could be better... Don't expect "big ship" evening entertainment. Fair enough, Riviera is not a big ship (part of the attraction), but I think people would welcome a little more entertainment variety around the ship. The appeal of the shows in the main theatre will always depend on people's individual tastes. In my opinion, there were some good shows/artists and some I didn't bother with. However, of an evening there were no artists performing anywhere else on the ship (aside from the usual pre-dinner piano & string quartet options). I would have liked more choice. TIP: Oceania's own excursions are extremely expensive. We booked the Florence on your own coach transfer which cost over £200! We booked two other trips independently which were far better value for money. Our excursion group size was 6 & 10 people respectively, which makes for a far more personal interaction with the guide. This issue also applies to airport transfers. Unless you're made of money, book your private transfers independently. Finally, Oceania Med cruises are very port intensive. Be careful not to book & take on too much before you go. We spoke to a number of people who cancelled some of their trips because they were so tired. Will we use Oceania again...we're booked for 2020 cruise up to Alaska!

Hi, Just a few comments re our booking. Transfer from the airport to the ship; GR8 Mercedes S class. Transfer at end of cruise back to airport not so gr8. A mini van for 8 persons; only 6 turned up! Good job because driver had difficulty in getting all the luggage in. If the other 2 had turned up,it would have been impossible. Last but one day of cruise was a sea day arriving in Lisbon at 16.00 and then an over night b4 debarking the next day. It was a totally wasted day. Some friends we made on the ship, who had booked a trip in Lisbon left at 16.15, got caught up in the rush hour traffic, went to Caiscais, and then on to Cintra where they arrived in the DARK. When they arrived back to the ship the promised food was not available as the restaurant and the self service was closed. It would have been better if the ship had spent the last but one day in Cadiz, and then travelled over night to Lisbon arriving early morning for debarkation. Edgar Glucksman
