Riviera UK Debut, Mein Schiff 5 & MSC Preziosa
Oceania Cruises Riviera made her debut on the 28th August 2019.  Entering service in 2012, this 66,172grt ship is the sister to Marina.  Her maiden voyage was delayed due to dockyard strikes but when she finally began taking fare paying passengers, she stayed in the Med during the summer season.  This call was part of a 44 night repositioning from Civitavecchia to New York, taking in the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Greenland and others en route.  She was due to sail at 6pm, and cast off shortly afterwards.  Our friends John and Roz Kennedy were there for her too and we all went home afterwards.
