Oceania Riviera Wellness Review


The Oceania Riviera pool

The sparkling waters of the Oceania Riviera pool are like an oasis on the high seas. It is the perfect place to cool off. In addition, there are two large whirlpool hot tubs.

A beautiful teak deck surrounds the pool.

The teak deck is filled with padded sun loungers and there are also comfortable day beds. These are perfect for couples. There are additional sun loungers upstairs on deck 14 and 16.

There is bar service around the pool deck, so a refreshing cocktail is only as far away as the next drinks waiter.

The Spa Terrace

The Spa Terrace is an exclusive area. It is reserved for guests having spa treatments, and those staying in Suites and Concierge Level staterooms.

The Spa Terrace is an exclusive area with elevated amenities.

It is located right a the front of the ship with spectacular views and it has enhanced amenities. There are couples sun loungers and shade parasols, as well as a self-service soda station. The Spa Terrace also has its own extra-large whirlpool hot tub. Plus, there are showers for cooling off.

With a glass of champagne in hand and a good book it could all be idyllic. But sadly, there is no bar service on the Spa Terrace. In my opinion the exclusive feel of the Spa Terrace could be made even better by changing this.

Oceania Riviera spa
