Rated 1239 out of a possible 200 points in the Berlitz guide the OM is suitable for adult couples and mature single travellers who want a basic cruise in unpretentious yet comfortable surroundings. A good first cruise offering good value for money. Greek registered, 10417 tons last upgraded in 1994. Hope this helps.

Thanks for taking the trouble to reply but not really. Came back 280808 from a cruise on her and I am in my early 50s and most of the other passengers were in their 70s/80s. The entertainment was for THEM and lots of food that didnt need chewing........... Going out on a coach trip was terrible with lots of sticks and that. I was very disappointed. Also a small ship is not for me and I will stick to Princess in the future even for last minute BARGAINS. The ship needs a lot of money spent on her............updating etc .

You must have had different entertainment than we did in June. Excellent young team, including a brilliant four piece band. Also the very talented Mark Bellinger, who pulled everything together. Age range varied from 30s to 80s and all got on well together. You seem to be very intolerant of elderly people, perhaps one day you will need a stick. If you like Princess I don't understand why you thought a small ship would suit you. Ocean Majesty has the reputation of being the friendliest ship afloat. If you didn't like it..... work it out for yourself.

Its kind of you to take the trouble to reply and I am sorry I gave you the impression that the staff were not good because they were and the 4 piece band really pulled it out of the hat the night the act of "Tom Jones" had to go off after 3 numbers due to seasickness. It was the best evening with us all dancing to 70s tunes. The Cruise entertainment manager had MANY people say the same comment to him about that being the best evening and said that the entertainment was this year aimed at 70+ age group and they were going to lower that for next year....... Maybe I will feel different if I need a stick but perhaps the marketing was not specific enough to deter the handful of under 60 old years on board the ship...... I NOW know that a small ship is not for me and neither is set time dining. To come back from a coach trip at 1755 and be in dinner for informaldress was difficult....... but there you are.......... we live and learn!
