No not silly. On Ocean Village and Ocean Village 2 I think there are 9 lifts. 3 near the front 3 near the back and 3 in the middle. Generally it is easy to get around , the exceptions being when tour groups are going ashore and when there is the Boat Drill which all passengers must attend. If you have difficulty with stairs see one of the guides when Boat Drill is called and they should allow you to use a lift. Able-bodied people will have to use the stairs as the lifts are out of bounds for this period.....Hope that's OK....Id.

Normally there are stairways usually front and back and usually two sets of lifts at either end of the ship. Suggest you go on line and locate the ship and see the plans or us the brochure .

Hi Ida and Neil are right there are 9 lifts on both ships 3 Forward, 3 Mid Ships and 3 Aft. Ocean Village is a far roomier ship to Ocean Village 2. We have cruised on both several times on Ocean Village but just once on Ocean Village .

Because of this, the increase in people wanting to sail from the UK has risen. Very much a stress free start to your holiday, no worries over how much luggage you can take, all you need to do is get to the port.But did you know that it is not just ...

Why I never pre pay my gratuities

By Chris Halford

Chris Halford's blog

Almost every day I have conversations with customers around gratuities and if you are a first-time cruiser it can be confusing, and you may not be sure what the best etiquette is.Cruise lines would prefer I tell you to pre-pay your tips because its better value, or because it helps you budget for your trip, but personally I would rather be upfront and honest. Tipping, for me, is a personal thing and each person has their own ideas about what is the right thing to do. I used to always be an ad...

Is Smaller Better?

By Lesley Millward

Lesley Millward's blog

There are so many of the larger ships out there, and they do seem to be getting bigger and bigger don’t they! My lovely client Mr S asked me recently to give him a list of all the smaller ships that he could choose, because he isn’t a fan of the bigger ones. Point taken Mr S. I actually prefer smaller ships too.Of course, it is interesting to note what actually defines a smaller ship? To some people it would be about 2000 people, to others about 300. A smaller ship may not hav...
