Hi Janet

This YouTube clip may remind you of the "Ocean Village moment" you enjoyed. It's when Ocean Village 1 & 2 had a rare meeting and sailaway earlier this year in Grenada.

Alas it wii never happen again as OV2 goes to Australia to become Pacific Princess at the end of Summer and OV1 follows in 2010, and the brand will be no more.

Perhaps we should all join you on Royal Caribbean and liven things uo a bit!!

Oh my gosh yes! I loved that video, I love that the whole ship came out for sailaway and had such a great party. Is another ship going to take her place on that route?

We gave Mariner of the Seas a good send off from Cozumel last year, I think the cruisers enjoyed it!

I was onboard OV for the St Maarten sailaway party on 27th March - the crew had put speakers out facing the Adventurer of the Seas specially so that everyone could join in!!

I would say that most of the OV passengers joined in. We all waved our flags and sang along with the Adventurer passengers to quite a lot of tunes, then actually sailed away to 'I am Sailing'. Both ship's joined in by sounding there horns/whistles a number of times.

I think the other 2 ships - one of which was Thomson Destiny - must have felt a bit left out.

OV and Adventurer passengers were all having a great tims

I actually sent an email to RCCL about how much fun we had at your sailaway, they asked me to send a link to the video so I sent them this thread! Every time I read this thread it makes me smile, what a great sailaway party it was, definitely one for the records!

We had an OV2 sailaway from St Vincent with Artemis adjacent to us, great atmosphere on OV2 but apart from a few Artemis passengers joining in all on board OV2 got the impression we were being snubbed. Although I did hear one witty remark that all the stannah stairlifts on board were broken
