At this time we have only been on ov2 going on one in 6 weeks time,all i can say is we thoroughly enjoyed ov2 and it was around the caribbean great time,a lot of people we spoke to say they prefer ov1 and then of course others prefer ov2.Just go with an open mind and enjoy yourself because it is difficult for anyone to tell you which is best of the two because we all like different things,go and enjoy as i am sure you will on whichever ship you choose.
Thank you, please when you come back tell me which ship is better in your appinion and why, thanks, I have just read a comment saying the 1st ship is tatty!! if this is true please tell me. We are going the 10th March cant wait please write back Thankyou. :-) (We have also went with the Ocv2 and found lots saying the Ocv1 is better and now worrying because of that review.).
If you are in fact going on the 10th of March it will be too late when we return from our cruise for you to book either ship as we are not due to return until the 10th of march,i am more than willing to tell you how we find ov1 but it will be of no use to help you make your choice.I am sure no matter which ship you choose you will have a superb holiday just go and enjoy we all have to go on any ship for the first time no matter what we read ....best wishes mick.
Hello, I have booked the 10th of March in October on the Ocv1, I have been with the Ocv2 already. Have a great holiday Mick. Thank you to everyone who has ansered please keep ansering Thankyou :-).
Hi we are going on the 3rd of march me my husband and 5yearold son see you there!
I don't do Ocean Village but you will always read someone, somewhere will have a bad experience even on the very best & most expensive of ships. If you go to the reviews (big orange button) & use the drop down list 'Ocean Village' click search & you will see many, many 4 & 5 stars given for both these ships. It's like 'Ask The Audience', the majority are nearly always correct........Regards Wilba .
-Only done OV1, but 3 times (twice the Caribbean). It all depends what you want. OV2 has more balconies, so if you want a higher level room / suite, OV2 is the one to go for. If you are OK with a normal room, not much difference in the ships, both the same size (ish), year of build (ish), ammenities, etc. Itineries are different in the Caribb, tho, but again, depends what you want? If you've never been, then it won't matter too much (the caribbean is beautiful, no matter where you end up!), if you've been before, then go for the ship with the most islands you've not seen before..... makes sense, really. ;o)
P.S. For the Caribb, I'd THOROUGHLY recommend a balcony. Nothing beats sitting with a cold beer / glass of wine, watching the sun go down on your own balcony (damn....i'm missing it already).
Hi we went to the caribbean in jan 06 with p&o oceana it was our first cruise and we had a fantastic time ship is beautiful
