Riviera - Oceania Cruises

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.
