I was in an OV2 suite in September and found it to be very good. The suites on OV2 are the only ones that have both a bath and a shower, other cabins only have showers. The bathrooms are not large only having one sink when suites on many other ships often have two but it is perfectly adequate and the lighting was very good for doing makeup etc. You get small bottles of Molten Brown toiletries which are replaced when used, you also get cotton bathrobes. There is loads of storage space and a walk-in wardrobe, although we couldn't fit our cases under the bed there was enough room to put them out of the way. In the suite you also get an iron and ironing board which is quite useful. All cabins get tea/coffee making facilities but the suites also get a large wooded chest that has loads of different teas for you to try. All cabin get a free safe. We made use of the fold out sofa-bed and even when this was in use you could get to the balcony without having to scramble over the bed, which is unusual and shows the suites are quite wide. The balcony was quite wide and open but not very deep, it had two heavy upright wooden chairs and a small footstool/table. The cabin was serviced once a day usually in the morning, but the steward will come back to pull out the sofa bed if required.

Thank you so much for your answer, it helped me to make up my mind and have booked a suite 11131 for the venice trip. I am really excited now. Thank you once again.

Glad to help, I'm sure you will have a great time and I definitely think the extra you pay for the suite is worth it. This was my first time with OV only been on P&O ships before but I would have no hesitation in booking another cruise with OV.

Is Cruising Getting Too Hi-Tec?

By Gina Rowan

Gina Rowan's blog

With the announcement of several new ‘innovative’ ‘groundbreaking’ ‘futuristic’ Mega-ships being built and released in 2018-19, I’m beginning to wonder if the cruise-lines are getting a bit ahead of themselves. Employing A-list global architects and designers to create all these new gadgets & gimmicks which promise to be ‘transformational’, ‘industry firsts’ which will ‘erase boundaries’ for the Sophistic...

This is AZAmazing!

By Blair Campbell

Cruise lines are often difficult to differentiate between each other and often you become spoilt for choice. Let me tell you why I have this soft spot for Azamara Club Cruises. I feel that as a company they tick all the correct boxes for me as a bit of a culture vulture. They have an amazing spread of itineraries despite only having TWO ships (That are identical sisters) The Azamara Quest and Azamara Journey. I will talk you through 4 Reason why this cruise brand stands at the top of my to-do...
