Grand Dining Room
Restaurant Venues and Cuisine on the Oceania Cruises' Riviera
The mid-sized (1,250-passenger) Riviera of Oceania Cruises has nine distinct dining venues. On her Mediterranean christening cruise, I was lucky enough to try most of them. The cuisine is varied and memorable, with small restaurants specializing in French, Asian, Italian, or classic grilled food. And, then there is the spectacular Grand Dining Room and casual poolside or buffet dining. The Riviera has only two very small venues that carry an extra surcharge--Privee for small groups and La Reserve for wine pairing dinners. The dining venues are very similar to those on the Riviera's sister ship, Marina.
These 24 photos feature all of the different dining venues and show some of the many memorable dishes you can experience when you sail on the Riviera.
