    Riviera - Oceania Cruises

    Pros

    Emphasis on food and wine pays off with some of the best dining at sea.

    Cons

    Entertainment is lackluster, and the ship shuts down pretty early.

    Bottom Line

    The ship is a perfect fit for foodies and those who want a deeper dive into ports.

    Nautica - Oceania Cruises

    Pros

    Oceania has best food at sea, with no-fee specialty restaurants and vast menu choices.

    Cons

    Popular itineraries sell out quickly, and longer sailings may not appeal to time-constrained travelers.

    Bottom line

    Nautica offers plenty of amenities in the more intimate setting of a mid-sized ship.

    Riviera - Oceania Cruises

    Pros

    Emphasis on food and wine pays off with some of the best dining at sea.

    Cons

    Entertainment is lackluster, and the ship shuts down pretty early.

    Bottom Line

    The ship is a perfect fit for foodies and those who want a deeper dive into ports.
