Hi Kathy,
Went on Ocean earlier this year and really loved the ship. Sounds like thats a school break time, so there should be quite a few kids your daughters age. We went during spring break and there were a lot of families with kids, teens, etc.
Really was a good mix. This ship is beautiful, service is great, food was really good, so you are in for a treat, enjoy it. You may also want to post on the "Meet on board" here at cruisemates and find other families also going on Ocean when you do, good luck and have a wonderful time :-)

RE: Ocean Princess
well were to start? I guess let me start by saying if you have ever been on Celebrity cruises before you here going to be disappointed. yes the ship was beautiful. but the food was not. the deserts same thing every day. people trying to sell you wine 24 hours a day. the buffet is not up to par. the ice cream bar you have to pay for. the only good thing about this ship was the entertainment. the ports were also nice.

Apparently we had very different expectations, but my experience of MV Ocean Princess was very similar to Donna's.

RE: Ocean Princess
We are taking same cruise on the Ocean Princess last week of February. Would love to hear about the excursions upon your return. I am not reading many good comments about Caracas on this and other message boards. Think we will just stay on board ship that day and enjoy the ship. We have sailed on Norwegian, Royal Carribean and Princess (Sun Princess, Mexican Riviera, 95') We enjoyed all our cruises but felt Princess was a cut above the rest. They just seemed to be a cut above the rest in several areas. Enjoy your cruise!
