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.

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 wishes mick.

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).

My Dream Cruise

By Edward Griffiths

Make no mistake, my heart lies with the Ocean. The rolling waves, the fresh sea air and the gentle shudder as we slice through the water will always give me goosebumps, but this got me thinking – do I have a dream cruise? The answer is YES! Tonight I was browsing some options for a customer when I stumbled across a stunning itinerary on a truly iconic ship. Here is that itinerary:Southampton, United KingdomAt SeaAt SeaAt SeaAt SeaAt SeaAt SeaNew York, United StatesAt SeaAt Sea Christmas...

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 ...
