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.

A Right Royal Caribbean Dress ...

By Hannah Wilson

Over the last few years there has been a general drift towards more casual attire during the evening on certain cruise lines. P&O and Cunard have done away with semi-formal evenings and now just have Formal or Casual attire while Celebrity have introduced Evening Chic which is really evening casual by another name. The latter is proving especially popular with men who no longer have to find room in their suitcase for their dinner suit, also those who hate formal attire when they are on ho...

Celebrity Edge is on its Way

By Robin Clarke

Robin Clarke's blog

So the brand new Celebrity Edge has now gone on sale for her maiden voyage on the 16th of December starting her Caribbean voyages where she will be based in Fort Lauderdale. This ship is like no other at sea with so many fantastic new amenities on-board such as the new infinite balconies which even I was blown away by this. The balcony itself is now within the cabin and has a separator if you wish to use it to separate the balcony from the cabin. You then have a switch that you can push that ...

We have all been horrified by the news recently of the terror attack that took place in Westminster and in particular on Westminster Bridge. It was devastating to hear that a Police Office lost his life along with other innocent people who were walking on the Bridge that day. They say the attack took 86 second in total but will have a lifetime effect on many. My Brother in Law works in the Houses or Parliament and, in his words, was told to run for his life when the attack was taking place ne...
