Oceania Riviera

Oceania Riviera


Oceania Riviera was built in 2012 and refurbished in 2015; it's the newest addition to the Oceania Cruises line of luxurious, mid-sized cruise ships. The Riviera is an Oceania Class ocean liner and sister ship to the Oceania Marina. The Riviera has room for 1,250 guests in 625 cabins and caters to guests searching for a relaxing, adult-oriented vacation. 

As soon as you step aboard this stunning ship, you'll be awed by the elegant Lalique grand staircase and the artfully designed staterooms featuring Ralph Lauren Home designs. The experience onboard the Riviera includes many dining options with open seating and no surcharge, as well as a gourmet cooking school at sea, the only hands-on cooking classes featuring master chefs. If your talents run to other arts, spend some time in the Artists' Loft, where you can learn painting and collage techniques from artists-in-residence.

The personalized service and comfortable surroundings make this Oceania cruise ship a favorite for Caribbean cruises out of Miami, the Riviera's home port.
