Enquire off an agent who's airline Ocean Village use. Most likely be Thomsonfly with B767s. The seating in economy is 2-3-2 which is always better than B757s which are 3-3.

Ring Ocean Village direct. There are 2 reasons for this. First is TELL them how bad that airline was (Thomas Cook I suspect? or TC have put in a replacement airplane from GADAIR as one of theirs is out of commission) things will not get better unless one complains. SECOND - they can give you an idea which company are chartered for flights as these vary depending on whether you are going from Manchester or Gatwick. Also the time of the flight. This applies for Med cruises too. Tell your agent that you dont want to travel on this Air charter line again and see if you can be accomodated. To avoid TC one year (on another cruise line!)we flew into Manchester on Thompsons (good) and got a cheap flight from there to London. Well worth it. I am on a Thompsons flight (Gatwick) when on OV in Nov.

Have done two flights to Barbados for OV, each time from Manchester with Thomas Cook. One word sums up Thomas Cook flights. Appalling! Old aircraft, no leg room, broke trays, and seats that appear to have been worn down to the metal.

Amazed by Symphony Part 1

By Anne Eaves

Anne Eaves's blog

My husband and i have recently returned from a cruise on Symphony of the Seas to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary and without a doubt it was one of the best cruises we have done. We arrived in Barcelona on 27th April and had one night at the Onix Liceo Hotel which is centrally located about half way down Las Ramblas on a side street, and is a great location for a pre cruise stay if you are looking for something central.We took a taxi to the port the following morning where the check i...

A mini cruise to remember..

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

I’ve just come back form a cheeky three night mini cruise with the girls so I thought I would give you a sneaky peak at some of our best bits.We were a large party of twelve with a mixture of friends, some who had met through www.CRUISE.co.uk. Some of us are still here but others had moved on to pastures new, so it’s always nice to catch up with everybody to see what people have been up to and what’s new in their lives. Not everybody knew each other which was also nice as we all...
