Aboard Oceania Cruises’ Riviera

Incredible medieval monuments and spellbinding scenery intertwine on this Mediterranean luxury cruise aboard Riviera, Oceania Cruises’ elegant masterpiece.

See Croatia’s most striking Byzantine church at Zadar, featuring marble streets framed by Romanesque structures. Experience Montenegro’s crown jewel, Kotor, where narrow streets twist past orange-roofed homes and lovely cafes. Immerse yourself in natural splendors at Corfu, a Greek isle drenched in greenery and sprinkled with cypress trees and wildflowers, and marvel at St. John’s Co-Cathedral in Valletta. Cruise to Sicily’s second-largest city, vibrant Catania, graced with a glorious 18th-century cathedral. Before capping off your voyage in Rome, the “Eternal City,” explore the artistic treasures and culinary delights of Naples, a gateway to the spectacular ruins of Pompeii.
