Although Ocean Village Cruises follows traditional cruise routes, spending the summers in the Mediterranean and laying over in the Caribbean for the winter, the informal lifestyle on board is a world away from that of old-time cruising.
Passengers, mainly in the 30-55 age group but with plenty of provision for children, are encouraged to come and go as they please. There are no set meal-times and no dress codes. The many bars offer distinct atmospheres for different moods and times of day. Vigorous on-deck activities give way to a wide range of opportunities for relaxation, while the evening entertainment offers something for everyone.
Both vessels are strong on personal space and this extends to cabins of all grades. And with staff renowned for their friendliness, it is not surprising that in its relatively short lifespan, Ocean Village has collected several industry awards.
