Cruise Search

There are certain advantages from travelling on a larger vessel but alos the actual place where you cruise should be taken into consideration. Biscay and the North Sea are notorious "black spots", the Mediterranean can play up badly at times but the Caribbean is often quiet with no lumps. However, the nature of the sea is that from time to time it has uphills and downhills. Yes the bigger the ships and your position on it (midships is best) will have a bearing. Most ships provide sea-sickness tablets and if you are still queasy then payment for an injection will solve the problem. Both the Ocean Village ships do tend to move around a bit when the water is uppity.....Neil.

You tend to not feel the ship moving while you're on it. Neither Ocean Village ship goes through the north sea or the by of biscay so hould have no problems. Been on OV twice in greece isles and western med and never had problems.

Whilst I agree that the Med can be beautifully smooth I must also say that I stand by the fact that it can be extremely rough there and we have been in many a really rough sea there. Ocean village is prone to move about a bit in rough water and the fact that it is not currently sailing into the North Sea or Biscay does not necessarily mean that it will not do so in the future…..Regards Nei.
