Riviera - Ship Description
The Oceania Riviera, which began sailing in April 2012, represents an evolution of the line’s extremely popular Regatta-Class ships. While larger than her consorts Regatta, Insignia and Nautica, Riviera remains comfortably mid-size, adroitly utilizing the additional space for even greater amenities. She rewards guests with Oceania Cruises' signature “finest cuisine at sea” in six restaurants, including two new gourmet venues — Jacques and Red Ginger. The new La Reserve holds enlightening wine and food pairings. For special coffees and snacks, there is Baristas Coffee Bar. The new Bon Appétit Culinary Center offers hands-on cooking instruction under the guidance of master chefs. Similarly, artists-in-residence teach fine arts in Artist Loft, a new enrichment center. Intimate lounges abound. The Canyon Ranch SpaClub® offers signature massages, aromatherapy treatments, a private spa deck with plush day beds and heated ceramic loungers, and healthy-cooking demonstrations. Accommodations in every category feature the Tranquility BedSM - an Oceania Cruises exclusive - and are incredibly spacious, especially with regard to the lavish bathrooms. Yet remarkably, with so many additions, the sense of intimacy, luxury, and elegance remains comfortably familiar. Riviera has retained everything guests adore about Oceania Cruises' ships and raised the bar ever higher.
