It was announced that the Ocean has been sold to Oceania for a complete overhaul. It is really in need of an update. As one reviewer noted, "It seemed tired." Apparently Princess decided to stop any updates some time ago. ... Read more

Overall, my husband and I enjoyed the cruise. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was plenty to do if you were not one to sit by the pool all day. Because of the size there were many opportunities to interact with the staff. ... Read more

The Ocean is a small intimate ship (670 or so passengers) whose size I love. It gives you a chance to get to know some people. With passengers decks on 6-7-8 and restaurants on 5 with the buffet on 9, you can always walk the stairs if you ... Read more

After having sailed on the larger (5,000 + passenger) ships, this relatively small cruise ship, at only 650 pax, was much nicer. The cabins were the same size, maybe a little nicer, than the large ship cabins, but there were no line-ups ... Read more

Just returned from a 14-day trip to the Shetland Islands, Iceland and Norway. This cruise was hard to review, because so many things were variable. PROS: 1. Staff were great. Everyone from the captain on down couldn't have been ... Read more

What was to be a memorable voyage on the Ocean Princess started badly even before we embarked. You can always be sure that when things begin poorly that is the way they usually continue! Let me first say that my wife and I are so ... Read more

Much more relaxing than our typical cruise. We are usually taking lengthy and or strenuous excursions in every port of call, but on this itinerary there is not a lot to do besides snorkeling (excellent!), island tours, and the like. Not ... Read more
