While the impeccable level of personalized service and the country club casual ambiance remain the same,  Riviera offers even more choices, as well as generous new amenities. Designed with the ultimate epicurean and travel connoisseur in mind, Riviera offers guests multiple dining venues, of which six are open-seating gourmet restaurants with no surcharge. La Reserve by Wine Spectator offers enlightening seminars, tastings, and gourmet food pairings. Riviera also features The Culinary Center, the only hands-on cooking school at sea which features a range of cooking classes by master chefs. In the Artist Loft, talented artists-in-residence offer step-by-step instruction in everything from photography to painting to printmaking. Baristas, our signature coffee bar, serves up illy® espresso and coffee and fresh pastries made daily. Intimate spaces throughout the ship provide relaxing escapes. Spacious accommodations in every category showcase luxurious designer touches and lavish bathrooms.

Notably, the onboard experience continues to exude that comfortable familiarity guests have come to cherish. We have retained everything guests appreciate about our ships and continue to aim even higher. We look forward to welcoming you aboard.
