An Oceania Cruises Experience


Recently, SB Travel Advisor Sheree Peterson had the opportunity to enjoy a cruise on Oceania Cruises, and she said it was the best cruise experience she’s ever had!

“We were very fortunate to have recently taken the “Mayan Mystique”, a 10 day cruise on the ship Riviera of Oceania Cruise Lines. Sailing on this beautiful ship was a wonderful experience and every crew member we met was very professional and attentive to us. The 4 specialty restaurants as well as the Grand Ballroom were over the top. We also enjoyed the fabulous lunches at the Terrace Café and Waves Grill.

I can personally say this was the best cruise I have taken!  Love the Oceania experience, and look forward to another voyage.”
