We went on ocean village 2 last August. I had the same concerns I thought we would look out of place, but I need not have worried the ages ranged from children to people in there eighties. The cabins are very spacious, plenty of wardrobe space and tea and coffee making. My only problem was the balconys are very small. We had a good time. Its a very casual ship for a first time cruise and if you want to try formal you can do next time.
Thank you for answering my question regarding Ocean Village Ships. I am sorry to be a pain but could you advise me if the ship had vibration problem. When you sat in your cabin your legs were shaking and in the bars. As last year was our first cruise we wondered if all cruise ships were like this.
We were in the Med on OV in May. It was very calm so most of the time we were hardly aware we were on a ship.
The same comments made by Taylor from Dartford also apply to OV1. If you go during school holiday times then there will be more children but we noticed that you often get 3 generations of a family going together so ages can range from a few years up to the 80's. Out of school holiday times the ages range from 30's to 80's. OV promote it for the younger set but the older set have realised they can have an enjoyable informal cruise as well. The tours (which can be viewed online) vary from energetic (biking and zip wires) to typical city or countryside tours so there is something for everyone. You won't feel out of place at any age.
The cabins on OV are very large by most cruise line standards. A standard inside/outside cabin on OV is around 188sq ft compared with the norm of around 160sq ft. I went on her when she was P&Os Arcadia. Happy cruising.
