Pretty decent-size cabins - no complaints even when there's 4 in an identical cabin. And very well-planned, loads of storage. The twins can be pushed together. Cabin 8132 - dunno whether seasickness was in the back of your mind when you chose it, but it's a good choice - slightly astern from mid-ship, and the lowest cabin deck with access to open decking (the more you pay, the more you sway). Got a feeling your view is obstructed by lifeboats, but its an outside cabin & thats important, even tho its a fixed window. She's quite a big ship, by no means the biggest, but pretty stable. The nights to & from Barbados you're in the Atlantic, so can get a bit of a swell. The rest is Caribbean and, if the weather's decent, steady as a rock. Sturgeon seems to be the preferred tablet, but if you click on the red Cruise Answers, scroll down to the blue "Find a Question" box and select seasickness as a topic you'll find loads of hints. Have a great time. Chris .

You may get this answer twice, first try seems to have disappeared into the ether. OV2's cabins are a good size, they will accommodate 2 (singles, can be pushed together) plus 2 drop-down beds. They're also very well-proportioned & well-planned, everything you'd need & loads of storage. Cabin won't disappoint you. Don't know if you chose 8132 because of potential seasickness, but a good choice - near mid-ships & the lowest cabin deck with access outside (small deck aft, ideal late-nite if you can't sleep). Windows don't open (think yours has obscured view), but a window important. A fairly big ship, so pretty stable. Given decent weather, you may get just a bit of movement on nights to & from Barbados (Atlantic) but the rest is usually steady as a rock. Sturgeon seems to be the most popular pill, plenty of ideas if you click back to the Answers page & in the blue "find a question" box, scroll "pick a topic" to seasickness. Have a great cruise. Chris.

The cabins on Ocean Village are slightly larger than cabins on other cruise lines but are not huge. There is ample room for 3 to sleep there and because the wardrobe area is separated from the main cabin area there is room to change and plenty of storage space. We have sailed on the ship with 2 teenagers with scuba diving gear and did not feel claustrophobic. I would suggest putting the five year old in a lower bunk and one of the adults in the upper bunk for your piece of mind. We have cruised for over 40 years and when the children were younger they always occupied the lower bunks.
