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.

I suppose there is no quick answer to that and cruise lines vary in what they charge and also for how long you will be off the ship.The thing about excursions is that if you book them using the ship then if there are any delays then the ship will hold on for you and that is pretty much true but there is also another company we use out there that give you a guarantee to get you back to the ship in time and not everybody knows about them or has even looked at them, this is a shame as some of th...

My 6* Luxury Silverseas Experience

By Kerry James

Kerry James's blog

Last week I was lucky to have been chosen to fly to Dubai for 2 nights and then to sample 6* luxury on board the Silverseas Silver Spirit for 3 nights. Our flights from Edinburgh were with Turkish Airlines and we were very lucky to have half of us upgraded to Business Class on the way out, and the other half on the way back.We were late leaving Heathrow which meant we technically should have missed our connection but luckily the flight was held and after a mad dash to the plane (typically the...

Gin…Perhaps the cornerstone of any good night.But when you combine this dastardly potion with Tonic, Ice, Freddie, Karaoke, and 100 plus excitable staff, you end up with blog strap lines such as the above…Yes you guessed it, this weekend was the annual end of year bash for the company, and as with any end of year blow out, there was hard work, and hard play!This year our venue was none other than everyone’s favourite British Seaside Resort of Butlins at Skegness!Usually we t...
