I just wanted to say a big thank you for arranging our cruise for us, it was absolutely fantastic!
My husband and I have just returned from a Caribbean cruise on the Oceania Riviera. We flew to Miami and had 4 nights hotel at the Intercontinental which was close to Miami port. It was a 5 Star hotel right on the beach. We done lots of shopping and sightseeing. We had never been before but always wanted to go so we thought we might as well add on a few nights before the cruise.
When we arrived at the dock the size of the ship was just right, it was not too small and not huge as some ships look like floating hotels these days.
We have had a lot of reports from friends and family who have been on either the Marina or the Riviera and have highly recommended both of them.
We had booked a veranda stateroom which I have to say was a great size and the bed oh my goodness the bed was so comfortable we didn't want to get out of it!
Before we went on this cruise we had booked a few specialty restaurants as our concierge recommended that we do this as they book very quickly. We booked Jacques (French), Red Ginger (Asian) and the Polo grill (Steak house) We could not get over that we didn't need to pay a surcharge against these restaurants, very very good value for your money. My favourite was the Red Ginger with its contemporary design and great menus - Highly recommend customer to try the rack of lamb (Mouth watering)
The Grand dining room was very elegant indeed with its beautiful crystal chandelier in the centre of the room and staff who could not to enough for you.
We loved it sit in the library and relax and read a few books with our lattés from the cafe. We also treated ourselves to a few couple treatments in the Canyon ranch - We felt like new people once we left here!
We used our onboard credit we received as part of the offer on wine at dinner and shore excursions which we booked on board.
We still can not get over how much great value this cruise was. Please Please keep us in mind if anything else with Oceania comes along as we just loved them!
