Dear Cathy, I today received your letter accompanied by a bottle of bubbly.Thank You. If it helps,you can add my comments to your website. Having cruised last year with Oceania on the Marina,Sylvia and myself knew what to expect.They really are in a league of their own.I must say that the Riviera is even better.I know that they are virtually identical ships but they have "tweaked" a few things to enhance the cruise experience.The standard of their staff is the best we have ever experienced.The food is quite exceptional.Even the entertainment which we thought was not very good on the Marina was improved upon. We enjoyed the ports of call, but some have been visited on previous cruises. We very much appreciated your personal assistance towards the end of the cruise.We were lead to believe that the sevices strike in Barcelona the day before our cruise finished would extend into the next day when we were due to hire a taxi back to the airport.So a quick call to you resulted in you very efficiently arranging a private taxi which was very reassuring. As you know we introduced our friends to you who joined us for their first cruise,and whilst they believed our recommendations would be suitable,i know it exceeded all of their expectations. Regards Adrian.
