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!

If you knew the answer, why ask the question?

Five Of My Favourites !

By Camilla Edwards

Well its very nearly Christmas and all I wish for now is some snow! Walking the dog this morning everywhere was frosty and white, made me really feel in the festive spirit. One of the best things personally at this time of the year is the food and celebrations associated with Christmas and New Year, so this week I have decided to blog about 5 of my favourite places to eat. Some on cruise ships, some not.Fed Olsen Balmoral. I always enjoy the food on Fred`s ships and Balmoral last year was no...

My final update on my recent trip on Independance of the seas is all about my dining experience.I can honestly say I was not disappointed with one meal I had.You can literally eat 24 hours a day. The group was on second sitting which was 8.30 in the main dining room The Romeo and Juliet. The choice in there was great something for everyone and the staff were very attentive and gave us their recommendations at every meal.Also in here you can have A la Carte Breakfast from 7.30am to 9.30am an...

Calling all Small Ship Lovers.

By Nicola Milligan

Nicola Milligan's blog

Cast your mind back to 2015. and the sad news when P & O told us that the much loved 710 passenger adult only ship ADONIA was leaving their fleet.Lots of the small ship lovers were devastated as so many huge new ships were coming onto the market leaving a vast hole for the smaller more intimate ships.We were told she was joining Fathom Cruises a line that enables guests to do something good to help out poorer countries. So Volunteers through tourism can help locals learn English and build...
