Sorry to say, but yes it is looking tatty in places. We have sailed on OV1 3 times, the last time in October 2008. Noticed a definite difference. Our cabin was looking very tired, definitely needing a refurb. Also public bars in need of refurb, seating areas in dire need of replacement, carpets in corridors looking very stained. The entertainment was also very poor. More variety needed. However despite all this we could not fault the service, friendliness and efficiency of all the staff.

I agree with Hall. OV1 IS looking a bit tatty here and there, but to be fair, she is getting old! Most ships of that age are struggling to stay tip-top. - However, on studying Celebrity Constellation close-up (whilst in port), OV1 is holding her own pretty well (salt water just ISN'T good for ships.....). Regarding the entertainment, we've just had our 3rd trip on her (returned Dec31st), and I agree that it has gone down-hill somewhat (we did OV1's 'maiden voyage, and the entertainment was superb). - Does it affect the overall enjoyment of the cruise? No, I don't think so. As Hall mentions, service, friendliness, efficiency, all still top-notch. Of course there are bigger, newer, flashier ships out there, but the OV brand has a certain community spirit that makes it a sociable and friendly environment to be in....as a ship, it ain't perfect....there are areas to improve, but somehow the whole package 'works'. - Hope this helps?
