All First Cruises Are Good. I have never been on an Ocean Village Cruise, but I know that they are very good ones to choose. The Cabins are fairly spacious, depending on which cabin you have chosen. Being your first Cruise, there will be a lot of surprises that come to you along the way, and you will think that everything about the Ship is amazing, which in 99% of cases it is. The Port tours that you pay for are generally very good, but be sure to read the descriptions properly because tours are expensive. In the ports, there are many places to explore, but ports can sometimes be quite cold depending on where you are going. Ship facilities probably include a gym, which are good every so often, swimming pools, usually outdoor, and lots of theatres/bars. If you do not have an all inclusive Cruise, do not worry as bar prices are usually quite reasonable. Shows onboard are very professional, so be sure to watch some of those, and have a good time onboard your Cruise, I am sure you will love it, and seen as it is your first time, be sure to take note on what this ship has/doesn't have for any future Ships you may pick. If you want to ask me any further questions then please email me at #############################, and i will be happy to answer any of your questions. Have a Good Cruise!

The modern cruise ships can cater for passengers who need dialisis, when you are on this ship enquire how they might cope, it won't be a great help though as this ship transfers to Australia at the end of this year but it might give you an inkling of what can be done.

I am sure you will enjoy Ocean Village, it is clean the crew are lovely, we found the choice of food excellent, the entertainment very good especially Annie Lennox and Rod Stewart look alike., all the other entertain also good, plenty of room on decks, if you ask for anything at the reception desk it is done with manners and smiles. Enjoy your cruise. the cabins were spacious and clean.

I agree with all that is said below, OV is a great ship and especially suits first time cruisers. I have put a review on the cruise review page so look see there for more. The doctor on the ship will be good as well. So to answer your question in a very simple sentance ... You can expect to enjoy yourself and have a good gtime.

How Fred Olsen compares

By Charlene Thackeray

We are recently back from our first Fred Olsen cruise.Whilst this is the smallest ship we have been on as a family there were lots of great things and a few not so great things for us. We knew there would not be much for Charlie on board however he had a great time with all his new friends from the Entertainments team. I can honestly say the entertainment team were really friendly and put on some great shows. I loved how the stage rose in the Neptune lounge making it a great area for lots of ...

Sailing like a Celebrity Part ...

By Molly McIntyre

Molly McIntyre's blog

As I was only on board for two nights we did not bother with any speciality dining on this occasion so we ate in the main dining room which was amazing. We had opted for Celebrity Select Dining which means we could choose when we wanted to go for dinner and could just turn up or you can pre-book a time on your planner. We pre-booked 6.45pm on both nights. On arrival at the dining room entrance we were escorted to a table towards the back of the restaurant and were immediately greeted by two l...
