NO problem, you`r upgrading! Enjoy yourselves.
My husband and I (74 and 71) have just returned from an Ocean Village cruise. We went on our first cruise with them 4 years ago. In some areas the boat is looking a bit older (small ways eg some lampshades need replacing) but the general state is good - definitely not ruff and tatty. We found that most people made an effort for dinner, though some still appeared in vests and shorts - you can always find a table that sits only two. We travelled during the Easter holiday and there were very few children aboard - in fact, we think the average age was 50+. Of course, it may be different during the school summer holidays.
Put your minds at rest. While Ocean Village is a different style of cruising, you are moving upmarket and will enjoy the experience. Make the most of whats on offer. We will look forward to your review on your return. Richar.
As the 1st answer implies - you are moving upscale... if you found Thomson & Island ok, you will have no probs with OV
Its an upgrade from ISLAND ESCAPE AND THOMPSON.... hope you enjoy. Its part of P and O so standards are very good.
We spoke to couple that was on island at same time as us they have done ocean village with two kid they said its quite a family ship suppose lot of ships have kids if you want holiday without kids you would be better looking for adults only shi.
