Day at Sea- and a chance to get to know the Riviera. The morning was devoted to a presentation by senior executives of Oceania Cruises, followed by a Q & A. All very informative. We took a tour of the ship’s public rooms and suites. Dinner for us this evening was in Privee with Frank Del Rio, co-founder of Oceania Cruises and Chairman and CEO of the parent company, Prestige Holdings. Privee is an exclusive dining room behind the Polo Grill that seats 10. Exquisite!
The Riviera is such a comfortable ship. I think the size is just perfect. The staterooms are large. The food in the specialty restaurants is beyond fabulous — Jacques, the French bistro; Red Ginger, Asian; Polo Grill, for steaks; and Toscana, Italian. But the big surprise to us was was the consistency, great choices and excellent quality of the meals in Main Dining Room.
Our biggest kudos go to the outstanding crew, professional and friendly in every way.
