Ocean Village Takes Final Bow - but Steals the Spotlight

Share Article

She may be going this October but it seems that members of the Cruise.co.uk website still cant get enough of Ocean Village. She has been voted as the Number 1 Cruise line on the http://www.Cruise.co.uk UK Cruise Passengers rating. Ocean Village has knocked of Cunard Crusies from the top spot.

Ocean Village has done much to change the face of British Cruising

According to http://www.Cruise.co.uk UK Cruise passenger rating online, Ocean Village is now the number one cruise line; with an overall rating of “Very Good” based on 192 reviews. The ‘very goods’ continue as they achieve high scores in other category’s such as staff, food and cabin quality. Their lowest score being a 3.38 out of 5, equating to a ‘good’ score, in the activities category.

Ocean Village knocked off Cunard Cruises from the top position who had been holding onto the number one spot for the last two years. The question still remains as to what has caused this increase in popularity?

Last year Carnival UK announced that they will phase out the Ocean Village brand with the deadline for its closure being October 2010, due to rising costs. Both of the Ocean Village ships will be transferred to P&O Cruises Australia brand. Ocean Village 2 was transferred in October 2009, while sister ship Ocean Village will be taking her farewell sailings in October 2010.

David Dingle, CEO of Carnival UK, described it as being a disappointment but that the brand had been “superbly created and delivered by an excellent management team.” He went on to say that “Ocean Village has done much to change the face of British Cruising”.

Ocean Village’s new spotlight could arguably be one last hoorah and a salute to the years of great cruises that Ocean Village has bought travellers. But other travel websites such as holidaywatchdog.com include rave reviews of Ocean Village cruise liners; they argue that they are the best ships ever and speak highly of how Ocean Village dealt with passengers during the recent global Volcanic Ash disaster. With such high scores in all areas from http://www.cruise.co.uk it is clear that Ocean Village Cruise’s are exceptional.

Ocean Village will be missed come October 2010 but there is still time to share your Ocean Village stories, pictures and reviews online at http://www.cruises.co.uk. Would Ocean Village Cruises be your number one?
