Ship Facts: Ocean Princess Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Ocean Princess Deck Plans
Disappointed Sailor
A very disappointing cruise with limited facilities for a cruise of this length and so many sea days. Brilliant fellow passengers and dining table company was excellent. Cabin steward and dining room staff were excellent. Very good library and internet room but theatre disappointing and quality of entertainment poor although some of individual artists very good.

Very small pool and noisy at lunchtime when loud live music was played which resulted in many passengers going to their cabin balcony.Shop choice and stock very limited and all reflective of a small ship which whilst it has advantages has to be weighed against many other downsides.

Suspicion of Senior management problems on the ship with a sub standard Cruise Director and a Captain whilst very communative over attentive to young attractive female passengers.

As always on cruise ships Tours are becoming exhorbitant from a price point of you and there is a feelling of being "ripped off".

The ship acquired a severe spread of Norovirus after only a week into the cruise and still the management of the ship did not attend to what were clearly adverse hygiene issues and only started to place hand washers out and clean the hand rails some three weeks after the illness started.

The fact the ship was only 3/4 full for the first part of the cruise was and had to be discouted heavily for the latter part to attract additional passengers was interesting?

In future we will revert to larger ships with better entertainment.
