I was on this ship in April and I can re assure you that the ship IS NOT IN A SORRY STATE. I have been on her 4 times twice last year for 5 weeks in total and 3 weeks this year. She is in very good nick and has had new carpets etc. and also I have seen absolutely no sign of rust anywhere. There were rumors rife about her going to Ocean Village. As I have said elsewhere, that was denied by the Captain on board in April, publicly, as the rumers were everywhere on the ship. There was also a rumour that she would be going to Alaska. Since then the 2009/10 schedules have been published and as far as I can see - she is in the caribbean again this winter and on to the med etc. next year. My daughter works on Ocean Village and they havent heard any rumours of a third ship being added or gaining sea princess as a substitute for one of those currently in service. Funny how rumers get round. Never know, we may give them some food for thought though !!!!

Ocean Village and Princess cruises are part of the Carnival group. If this takes place it is yet another inter-group transfer.

Hi Folks, Don't know nothing about the condition of the ship but I did receive a newsletter saying that Sea Princess is being replaced for the Med in 09.

Last weekend I completed in the London Moonwalk – what an amazing but very emotional experience. Our group The Girls from the Ditch meet at 5pm where we had arranged for a mini bus to take us all down to London. We had to be in Clapham Common for 9pm so we had plenty of time to get down there. The day didnt quite go to plan for my sister who was joining me on the walk, her Grandson decided to come 2 weeks early and arrived at 2.30 in the afternoon, so after being up since 4.30 Sa...
