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.

By Peter Wellman

Peter Wellman's blog

It’s a question I get asked almost daily, are drinks packages worth it and of course there isn’t an easy answer unless you want to go through your daily intake on holiday with me! Some people literally work out how many drinks they would have to have to get their money’s worth which is fine but there are other things to consider.First of all do you really want to be thinking about it every day ? How many have i had today, am I getting my moneys worth ? In my opinion no, I li...

MSC Cruises, they just get better and better in my opinion. Last month I wrote about getting on a ship and helping the Caribbean by going there and spending some money. MSC have done a lot more than that with their latest offer of a school for the children.Along with the government of the British Virgin Islands MSC have dedicated a new, building that will serve as a school in Virgin Gorda. All 15 schools were destroyed in the British Virgin Islands during the recent hurricanes, the new pre-fa...
