Ocean Village Cruises

Ocean Village Cruises

Ocean Village Ocean Village is a UK-based cruise line, running as a subsidiary company of Carnival Corporation & PLC. Ocean Village is currently one of eleven cruise companies of the holding company Carnival Corporation & PLC with headquarters in Southampton, England.

The company was launched in 2003 when the Ocean Village entered service, targeting families and those looking for casual dress codes and fun events as opposed to formal dining. The target audience is 30 to 50 years old and with the cruise concept of freedom and flexibility on board with regard to food, clothing, and entertainment.

The company's slogan is "The Cruise for people who don't do cruises" and the company extends this policy over both of its ships.

It has a fleet of two ships which sail Western and Eastern Mediterranean in the summer and the Caribbean and Mexico in the winter.

The company's first ship, Ocean Village, was transferred from P&O Cruises in 2003. Ocean Village Two was transferred from AIDA Cruises, Carnival PLC's Germany-based brand with a similar ideology as Ocean Village, in 2007.

On 30 October 2008, it was announced that the Ocean Village brand would cease its operations in late 2010. Both Ocean Village ships will be transferred to the fleet of P&O Cruises Australia, as Carnival Corporation & PLC forecasts better growth potential in Australia. Ocean Village Two left the Ocean Village fleet in October 2009 and Ocean Village will be retired in late 2010.
