Default Ocean Club Cruises

This seems to be a new cruise line. Does anyone know anything about them or has anyone sailed on them yet?

They seem to have refurbished an old, small ship and operate 2- and 3-day cruises to the Bahamas and Key West out of Port Canaveral.

Wow, Michelle. I just checked that site and their pricing for a 2-day is hundreds more than the Fantasy or Sovereign 4-days. Don't know how they expect to compete.

We'll see.

Regards,
Thomas

Wonder if those are 'brochure' prices Thomas? Seem pretty darn high to me too.

The reason I ask is that there was an ad in the Orlando Sentinel this week from them advertising $99 for the 2-day cruises. Must be a special deal because there's no way I'd go on one of their cruises for their brochure prices.

I just came from FL yesterday and saw a billboard for Ocean Club Cruise and was wondering about that myself. $99 is a good deal if it's a decent cruise. Interesting, would like to hear more myself.

I am a hotel manager in Florida, about 20 minutes from port Canaveral and My boss's wife works for the Port Authority. We received a fax for hospitality employees to take the 2 day cruise for $49.00 p.p. Spoke to her and she said they are still working out the kinks. First couple of cruises, the pool was never filled, ran out of food and the captain missed key West altogether! The brochure prices are outrageous for sure, so I don't know what will become of her in the future. If i find out anything I will let you know.

Hello,

i checked into this and the guy sent me a brochure. It is an old ship that used to do cruises in Israel. He quoted me a price of 307 pp for the 3 day. I will wait until i get a deal on the Fantasy or Sovereign................

Ok i found the brochure.....multiple bars and lounges....oversized staterooms....flex dining with gourmet cuisine, which the guy told me was a buffett and carving station....350 seat theater style show room....ships registry the bahamas....2 bow thrusters and 2 stablizers.....485 feet long ...850passengers....15000 tons....draft 18 feet....275 total cabins....18 knots speed limit...over sized casino and poker parlor...

thats about it i guess....
