Enjoying The Caribbean On The Ocean Village starstarstarstarhalf star by The Dawsons on 07/10/2012

Ocean Village cruises showed us a great 14-day vacation in the Caribbean. We have had fabulous cruises now on the Ocean Village as well as the Ocean Village 2. If I had to compare the two ships, I would definitely prefer the Ocean Village 2. What this ship had to offer though was more than enough to show us a great couple of weeks.....Read full review

The Ocean Village was our home for a week back in October 2010, and I wanted to be able to share our experience with everyone so they can get a vibe for what this ship had to offer. Ocean Village Cruises is not a very big cruise line, but it was one which we wanted to try out as they had an itinerary through the Mediterranean that interested our family. We had been on 3 or 4 cruises in the p....Read full review

Better than I expected starstarstarstarstar by Paul K. Carruthers on 25/11/2009

I was given this cruise by my girlfriend as a late xmas present. My instant thought was "Oh no!, I absolutely hate boats", I was proven wrong though, by the absolute brilliance of such an experience. I though that I would be sea sick the entire time or fed up of not being able to go where I want - but there is so much to keep your mind occupied you dont really need to go anywhere?....Read full review

Superb Choice for casual people starstarstarstarstar by Stephanie Innes on 05/11/2009

I never really had the urge to cruise. I dont enjoy the idea of being couped up in a ship for a long period of time. My partner managed to convince me to take the plunge and I am writing this review to tell you that I am so glad I did. The ship was impossibly bigger than I imagined and although it was a very social ship it was also very casual. I always thought that ships were for posh snobs....Read full review
