The ship is lovely. the cabins are big and comfortable. unfortunately the entertainment is poor, although that really depends what you like. if you like robbie impersonators you will be ok. the bars are nice and the crew friendly. the main restaurant is more like a cafe. they have theme nights every evening and if you do not like foreign food then you will have to pay for la luna (which is well worth the money) or the bistro. it is a relaxed cruise soforget having to dress up, casual is fine at all times.

Some of the reviews on here are ridiculous - the cabins are spotlessly clean and the staff are the best we have found anywhere. So forget the nonsense - enjoy your cruise - we went on two last year and one so far this year with another two booked for Oct and Nov - all OV 1 & 2. And we're LUVIN IT.

Just returned from Greek Island cruise on OV1 having also been on her last winter in Caribbean, cabins very spacious and kept well, fridge, tea making hairdrier all available little more worn than 18 months ago but would not say scuffy. Food in Plantations ok but can be a little repetitive over 2 weeks, Waterfront much the same with a little more choice but gets very busy at peak eating times, La Luna good used it a number of times but has a £4.75 cover charge plus extra for things like surf & turf, didn,t use the Bistro menus did not appeal to us. Overall felt standards not as good as the last time onboard, saw some of the shows enjoyed the tribute acts but the resident singers have heard better however we still throughly enjoyed our cruise.

Ocean Village accommodation in my view is second to none. We have stayed 14 nights in the Caribbean TWICE on the original OV, and have loved everything about the ship. The crew are so friendly & helpful, food is good quality and plentiful and the entertainment was just that - entertaining. We look forward to the next trip 2008.

We have sailed on the Ocean Village about 2 years ago and the cabins were clean and well decorated as for the food there are different restaurants for different testes we found them all excellent from the buffet to the James Martin restauran.

I've been on OV1 4 times now - and had fab time on all of them [twice in caribbean, Med and just back from Greek Islands]. Cabins are spotlessly clean and spacious. More than enough drawer room and hanging space. Beds and pillows comfortable and you can ask for more! Food was good in Plantations and Waterfront and excellent in Bistro and La Luna [both have cover charges but well worth it]. Have recommended it to lots of people and will go again.

Crown Princess to become home from home

By Abbi Varela

Abbi Varela's blog

I don’t know about you but when I go on a cruise one of my favourite things is the food, I love trying all the international dishes and eating food that I wouldn’t usually eat at home. I’m sure you will agree that dining on board your cruise should be one of the highlights, it certainly is for me. So when I read Princess cruises latest plans for their menu’s on board I have to say I wasn’t overly convinced from a personal perspective.According to Princess they ar...

Move over Miami

By Charlene Thackeray

Charlene Thackeray's blog

Its that time of the year, Christmas has gone and its time to start planning for next year. We often host everyone at our house being that Chris is a chef its kind of expected. Well not in 2017, we have just booked a week on Royal Caribbean Allure of the Seas. I cannot wait! I have been on Harmony and Anthem but always with work and only for 2 nights so its not the same experience as being on board with your family for the week.Then comes the decision do we stay in Miami or Fort Lauderdale? H...
