The Stunning Main Port of

Riviera Overview

It's not unusual for cruise vessels to show a certain measure of extravagance, but the Riviera cruise ship, part of the Oceania fleet, goes beyond extravagance into pure magnificence. From the opulent Lalique Grand staircase to the striking Owner's Suites furnished in Ralph Lauren Home, this is a truly stylish ship.

Specs: Riviera at a glance
The Riviera comes in at 66,084 tonnes, with a length of just under 785 feet. She has a maximum guest capacity of 1,250 and slices through the waves at a cruising speed of 20 knots.

Accommodation: Riviera rooms and suites
Even the smallest of Riviera rooms, inside staterooms measuring 174 square feet, have a simple elegance to them. Highlights include a spacious marble and granite clad bathroom, complimentary 24-hour room service and 1000-thread count linens. But that's just the most affordable option. When it comes to what you can expect from a Riviera suite, the stakes go right up. Take the luxurious Owner's Suite for example: in addition to 2000 square feet of space to relax in, indoor and outdoor whirlpool spas, and two walk in closets, this suite also gives you access to areas like the Executive Lounge, Canyon Ranch Spa's private Spa Terrace - plus free unlimited internet on World 2015/2016 voyages.

Entertainment: things to do on board the Riviera
Aficionados of the arts will find themselves well catered for aboard the Riviera, with entertainment ranging from show-stopping illusionists to classical concerts to full scale musical productions.

A few Riviera entertainment highlights:
  • Lights, Camera, Music: a spectacular tribute to the greatest moments of Hollywood
  • Monte Carlo-style Casino: kiss Lady Luck and cross your fingers for the big win
  • Horizons: dance the night away to the sound of live music
  • World Beat: experience the world in an evening with this stunning production

Food: Riviera restaurants
Of course, the very best entertainment and accommodation are all for naught without great food; thankfully, Riviera food certainly doesn't disappoint.

A few Riviera dining options included in your fare:
  • The Grand Dining Room: breakfast, lunch and dinner with daily changing menus
  • Red Ginger: Asian fusion for those craving ethnic fare
  • Jacques: French classic dishes reinterpreted by Master Chef Jacques Pepin
  • Toscana: indulge in hearty northern Italian dishes

Some Riviera specialty dining options not included in your fare:
  • La Reserve: a gourmet 7 course tasting menu
  • Privée: host an exquisite private dinner party for 10

Destinations: Riviera itineraries
A typical Riviera itinerary will find passengers exploring the delights of the Mediterranean, but the ship also ranges further afield, with round trip Miami excursions into the Caribbean.

Things to remember: On board the Riviera
A few things to keep in mind before you begin your voyage on the Riviera:
  • When it comes to dress code, think elegant-casual. Avoid shorts, swimwear, and jeans, especially at dinner.
  • As wonderful as the Riviera is for adult cruisers, this is not the ship for a family holiday. There are no dedicated youth programs or daycare centres.
  • Tips will automatically be charged to your onboard account at a rate of $16 per day, per person, but if you wish to tip more that's fine. Those who deliver room service should be tipped anywhere from $1-$5. The official currency onboard is the US dollar.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!

The Grand Dining Room

Handsomely decorated in rich woods, designer tapestry fabrics and oversized armchairs, the expansive dining area exudes classic splendor. The Grand Dining Room’s formally attired and classically trained wait staff graciously serve course after course of European-inspired cuisine or delectable alternatives such as healthy Canyon Ranch® signature dishes. Menus change daily with a brilliant choice of at least ten appetizers, soups and salads and twelve entrées at dinner.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. No reservations required.

Polo Grill

Polo Grill embodies all the elements of a classic steakhouse, expressing them with timeless reverence. Each course stands as the very definition of time-honored favorites, most notably the beef dishes, all of which are USDA Prime and dry-aged for 28 days to enhance tenderness and flavor.

Open for dinner only. Reservations required.


Presented on elegant, custom-designed Versace china, masterfully prepared dishes exemplify the essence of Tuscany and celebrate Italy’s culinary passion. Classic dishes from various regions of Northern Italy are featured, many from recipes that originated with the mothers and grandmothers of our own Italian culinary staff.

Open for dinner only. Reservations required.


Exquisitely decorated with heirloom antiques, pickled wood furnishings and art from Jacques Pépin’s personal collection, Jacques was modeled after a Parisian bistro. Each country French dish served is a classic, ingeniously reinterpreted by Master Chef Pépin--Jacques is absolutely magnifique!

Open for dinner only. Reservations required.

Red Ginger

Red Ginger’s chefs have created contemporary interpretations of Asian classics. The interior simply glows with ebony woods, a soothing waterfall wall and striking, modern Asian artworks, all with a nod to feng shui. In Red Ginger, the gustatory pleasures are as striking as the visual ones.

Open for dinner only. Reservations required.

Terrace Cafe

Informal and carefree, the Terrace Café is wonderfully inviting any time of day--feel free to dine inside or alfresco at one of the shaded teak tables on the terrace. First thing in the morning, enjoy sumptuous breakfast selections. Come lunch, the expansive menu of international-inspired dishes changes entirely. Evenings, the impeccably clad wait staff shines, and the cuisine takes on a more sophisticated flair.

Host a private party for up to 10 privileged guests in our most exclusive onboard dining venue, Privée.

Reservations required. A room reservation surcharge applies.
