Ocean Village Cruises

Ocean Village Cruises offer a modern approach to cruising. Their cruises are informal occasions which are ideal for those looking to have a full itinerary packed with optional fun activities.

There are two cruise ships in their fleet, both of which offer very stylish personal accommodation which is larger than conventional cruise ship in the same class. A whole host of exciting programmers of activities are available while on board, including Salsa lessons and for those with a head for heights trapeze lessons!

Ocean Village Cruises are ideal for couples and families looking to get the most out of their holiday without having to worry about what to do and were to go, while being in complete control of their choices and options! Their ships have restaurants in different styles and interior design which provide a relaxed and informal dining. There are no formal set times for dining as with conventional cruises which is ideal for teenagers who want to do their own thing. The restaurants offer a wide variety of cuisines from around the world, with themed days offering Indian and Oriental dishes, as well as English fare for those with less adventurous palettes or special dietary requirements.

Various Mediterranean cruises are offered by Ocean Village, a 7 night Eastern Mediterranean cruise offers a day at six different locations, focusing on the delightful sun drenched Greek Islands. The itinerary has been carefully scheduled to spend the evenings at sea while people are sleeping to give the maximum amount of personal time to explore the different locations and surrounding areas before re-joining the ship in the early evening ready to set sail. For those who wish to go ashore, tender boats are used throughout the day. The first day of the itinerary is for flying to Herakolioni, Greece, exploring the local area before boarding the ship and familiarising with the on board amenities and choosing which restaurant to eat in.

Day two is spent at sea cruising the beautiful Mediterranean Sea. Sun lovers can enjoy the sun decks and sip long cool drinks while relaxing by the pools, for the more energetic there are a wide range of onboard activities to choose from.

The ship arrives at Limassol, Cyprus on the morning of the third day. Those who go ashore have many different charming places to visit and explore on this popular island. For those who wish to take a break from the heat and sun a trip to the pine forests in the Troodus Mountains is an excellent choice, before arriving back at port to get the tender boat back to the ship in time for aperitifs before dinner. The ship sets sail in the late afternoon to continue cruising through the night arriving at Rhodes, Greece, for the fourth day.

Day fourth day is spent either on board the ship or ashore discovering the delights of Ephesus, Turkey. On day five the ship docks at Santorin a magical Greek island where a swim in the clear blue sea may make a change from the ship’s pool! The itinerary continues with overnight cruising to the Greek Island of Mykonos. After another relaxing or exciting day the ship sets sail, returning to Herakolioni to catch the fight back home.

This cruise is also available as a cruise deal where people are free to organise their own flights.
