From what I remember its lounge type curved seating with tables more like a show lounge but with a proper stage.

It also has an upper floor about 4 to 5 rows deep onto which backs the casino and gaming machine area.

It is a show lounge with seating downstairs and upstairs and a stage. I sailed on O.V in September to the eastern med and had a wonderful time. I cannot understand all the hype about it being like butlins camp and everyone in shorts baseball caps and football shirts in the evening. The ship during the day is obviously no different to the large luxury liners casual. People do dress in the evening smart casual just no ballgowns and shirts ties and jackets. It is self service in the majority of the restaurants but the selection is excellent and the food is wonderful. The only problem we found was the staff will try and push drinks onto you after all it is their job The James Martin bisto is worth a visit. The excusions are expensive but if you go to the reception desk in the village hall every evening at about 10 you will find a leaflet about how to go it alone for the following day they do not advertise the leaflet on board ship. I am sure you will have a fantastic holiday such a shame O.V leaving the UK market in 2010 they shall be missed. If you have any further questions feel free to ask.

It has lounge type curved seating round tables which is tiered so that you get a good view from every where. There are few pillars to obstruct. There are also raised tables at the back that you can stand at with your drink and there is a bar with seating behind that. The balcony upstairs (2 x spiral staircases within the theatre or reached from deck 8) also has tiered seating of the sofa type and the balcony has glass under the rail so that the stage is not obscured. There is a normal size stage the same as any theatre but it also has a large Apron in front which gives close up views of the artists and shows. I came back yesterday from the trip Crete to Barbados. Thanks OV - it was great !!!

What Is Your Number One Priori...

By Freddie Moser

Freddie Moser's blog

So since finding out recently that I am going to become a dad for the first time (which I am probably foolishly ecstatic about), my priorities in life have taken something of a change of late!When I found out a couple of months ago, I started to look at my life. Where I was, what I have achieved, and what kind of future I wanted for my wife and imminent child.This little bit of soul searching has initially made me fixate at cash flow, which I’m sure is not unusual! So I have thrown myse...

Are cruise lines becoming sexist

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

Last week Aqua Expedition launched a new sensation but only for us ladies I’m afraid. They have come up with the idea of offering cruises just for ladies.They state……..‘With these cruises, women will have the chance to learn about new cultures and traditions whilst meeting new people who share the same excitement for adventure, whilst being able to enjoy a little bit of luxury at the same time.’Now forgive me for being a little lost with this fantastic opportunit...
