MS Ocean Village
Ocean Village was one of two ships within the Ocean Village fleet, a brand of Carnival UK. It was aimed at 30-50 age range who prefer casual "dress-down" cruising. The ship was previously operated by P&O cruises under the name Arcadia but in 2003 Arcadia was repainted as part of the refit to Ocean Village and a new ship named Arcadia entered service with P&O Cruises. Onboard features include a 3-storey atrium incorporating shops, a performance space, coffee and cocktail bars. A two storey show lounge featuring tribute acts and dance/show routines from the onboard cast. A second smaller lounge is used for comedy and light entertainment. A traditional English Pub with occasional sports shown on TV, a nightclub, cinema, 2 swimming pools, 4 Jacuzzis, a kids-club/sega Village, 2 Gyms, a sports net area and a health Spa. Food is provided in two buffet style restaurants, one of which is open 24 hrs.
Both Ocean Village ships have now been transferred to the fleet of P&O Cruises Australia, MS Ocean Village has been re-named Pacific pearl and Ocean Village two has be re-named pacific Jewell.
