Hello Low, (sorry, I couldn't resist that although I expect you have heard it many times before) Ocean Village are not making things very clear in their blurb at the moment saying that they are waiting for the full implications of the Parliamentary Act to be fully understood. Well the Act is well and truly in place but Ocean Village have not fully explained their position yet. I would suggest that you follow their invitation and: "If there's anything that's not clear or if you have any queries then please call our Reservations team on 0845 075 0032 or email us at ovreservations@oceanvillageholidays.co.uk" Hope that is a little clearer although as you particularly mentioned your cabin ….in the opinion of more and more of the cruise lines smoking in your cabin is gradually being outlawed, make of that what you will….Heathe.

Hello Jean We've just returned from a wonderful holiday on OV2 to the Caribbean, our 3rd cruise with OV. On OV2, smoking is allowed in all cabins, on the starboard (right hand) deck of deck 7 and deck 14, stern of deck 10 and in the casino/players bar. I think at present OV1 may have slightly different rules, so perhaps best to ring Ocean Village direct to check. Have a great holiday. Elain.

MUSICAS PORTS OF CALL.

By Nicola Milligan

Last time I told you all about the ship so this week we will talk about the reason we actually chose this cruise, it’s itinerary. I have been to Venice a few times now but the sail away never loses it’s excitement for me. When standing on deck I still get goose bumps as this massive ship glides slowly past all the major sights of this charming city. So close you can see into windows and see the faces of the lovers sailing on the romantic Gondola rides. It is unbelievable at how c...

How Fred Olsen compares

By Charlene Thackeray

Charlene Thackeray's blog

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 ...
