Mosaic Masterpiece

on Oceania’s newest Ship Riviera
September 18 - 29, 2013
Starting at only $3854* per person INCLUDING
Roundtrip air from Philadelphia, Prepaid Gratuities
and $100 per stateroom Onboard Credit!
Barcelona to Lisbon


Like the multicolored fragments of a treasured mosaic, the diverse ports on this voyage combine to create a masterpiece. Feel the unique energy of bustling Casablanca, the legendary star of Morocco. Savor delicious flaons, sweet pastries from Ibiza. Admire the works in the Picasso Museum in Málaga, and view Baroque masterworks in the remarkable Museum of Fine Arts of Seville. Stroll the historic Lisbon neighborhoods nestled in the shadow of St. George’s Castle. Walk among the ruins of the ancient Roman theater in Cartagena. The militaristic history of British Gibraltar is both contrast and complement to the carefree delights of Barcelona’s living statues along La Rambla.


PLUS, this is a special Jacques Pépin Cruise.  Master Chef Jacques Pépin has served as Oceania Cruises’ executive culinary director for eight years. On this sailing, you will be treated to specially designed signature menus, engaging lectures, culinary demonstrations and much more!


All this aboard Oceania’s newest ship Riviera.  She is one of the most beautiful, elegant and sophisticated ships to debut in the past 50 years.  Designer touches are everywhere, from the magnificent Lalique Grand Staircase to the stunning Owner’s Suites furnished in Ralph Lauren Home, they are showcases of the finest residential design and furnishings. More than anything, Riviera personifies the Oceania Cruises experience.


Comfortably mid-size, Riviera retains the same warmth and charm of Oceania’s other ships. While the country club casual ambiance and level of personalized service remain the same, Riviera offers even more choices and some enticing new amenities. As one of the first ships designed for lovers of fine dining and travel experiences, Riviera offers guests a total of 10 dining venues, of which six are open-seating gourmet restaurants with no surcharge. La Reserve by Wine Spectator offers enlightening wine and food pairings. The new Bon Appétit Culinary Center is the only hands-on cooking school at sea. Similarly, artists-in-residence teach fine arts in Artists Loft, a new enrichment center. For specialty coffees and snacks, there is Baristas Coffee Bar. Intimate lounges abound. Accommodations in every category are incredibly spacious, especially with regard to the lavish bathrooms.


Yet remarkably, with so many additions, the onboard ambiance and experience remains comfortably familiar. Oceania has retained everything guests adore about their ships and raised the bar ever higher.
