The day we’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived! The officers, staff and crew were all smiles today as we welcomed our first guests onboard Riviera in Venice. It was my great pleasure to welcome Mr. and Mrs. Kohel as the very first guests for Riviera‘s Maiden Voyage. The Kohels are our first ever Diamond Oceania Club members and have sailed with us on more than 40 voyages.

We have done a lot of celebrating over the past two weeks, but nothing gave me greater pleasure than welcoming all of our first guests onboard Riviera. Our guests are the reason we built Riviera, and I am so excited for them to experience this beautiful ship. It was a wonderful day that I will always treasure in my fondest of memories.
