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 ....best 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).

Port Or Starboard? Whats t...

By Gina Rowan

I wish I had a pound for every time I have been asked this question. I could have sailed around the world in Luxury! Aah yes! but would I choose Port or Starboard for my cabin? Or left side versus the right side of the ship?I suppose it depends on where you’re headed. I know that quite a few seasoned cruisers swear by the Starboard side. Although it really depends on what type of cruise you are on.For instance, if you are sailing in one direction, North or West generally people pr...

A Majestic Atrium the heart of the ship.

By DJ Weatherall

DJ Weatherall's blog

Majestic and her stunning atrium is the heart of the shipThe Plaza on Majestic is on Deck 5 – from here you can access 3 decks either by marble staircase or Panoramic Lifts – it is without doubt the heart of the ship. There are restaurants and bars, cafe’s and lounges, speciality tea and coffee takeaway or sit down areas and the all important shops.I know some lines prefer to have a royal promenade that runs along the centre of the ship – but Majestic just like Royal a...

MSC Loyalty Match scheme a hit!!

By Brad Smith

Brad Smith's blog

MSC have launched a new incentive to attract new customers and reward existing clients with an offer of matching customers loyalty level with competitors. Rather that just stop at matching cruise line loyalty levels, they have gone as far as matching loyalty levels for hotel chains and tour operators too.Clever move in my opinion, as I have many customers that specifically stick to a specific company as their loyalty levels are at the top level, so they love the perks they receive from their ...
