Riviera Cruise Ship of Oceania Cruises

Oceania Riviera - Atrium Lobby

Linda Garrison 

The Riviera is a gorgeous mid-sized cruise ship, and its 1,250 guests will love the elegant furnishings and fascinating decor. The artwork is especially interesting, and the company has about $10 million worth of art displayed on the Riviera and its sister ship the Marina.

Join me on a tour of the Riviera, and then check out these other photo galleries of the ship.
