Happy Customers

I have booked our next cruise through Flight Centre because they were local. I didn't think about phoning you guys as we arranged our own flights last time & weren't so positive about what we wanted to achieve because it included catching up with relatives in Britain."

Ovation of the Seas Overview

Royal Caribbean's newest ship Ovation of the Seas, appeared in April 2016. This is the third ship in the Quantum Class, at more than 167,800 tonnes, with 16 guest decks & almost 5,000 passengers. Ovation of the Seas is based in Tianjin (port for Beijing, China) and Sydney. Until March 2018 Ovation sails from Sydney to visit popular south pacific and New Zealand destinations. Itineraries include an eight-night South Pacific sailing on 18 February, a five-night Tasmanian cruise departing 8 March, two 10-night New Zealand cruises leaving 26 February and 13 March, plus a new three-night sampler departing 23 March. All sailings are roundtrips ex Sydney. Then until mid-October 2018 Ovation departs from Tianjin (near the port Tanggu, and two hours’ drive from Beijing), offering 3- to 8-night itineraries to Japan and Korea. By November 2018 Ovation is back in Sydney, sailing to New Zealand and South Pacific islands, She is the biggest & first-ever brand-new ship to sail from Australia. Consider the 14-night repositioning cruises between Sydney and Singapore, in March and October 2018.

Accommodation

The staterooms of Ovation are nine percent larger than Oasis Class ships in the company's fleet. Of the 2,090 staterooms, 1,570 are balcony staterooms, 147 are outside staterooms and 373 are “virtual balcony” staterooms (interior rooms with near floor-to-ceiling (1.3m) HD screen with real-time views of the ocean and destinations). Of the overall staterooms, 34 are wheelchair accessible with excellent facilities, 16 are family-connected, 16 are studio interior staterooms, and 12 are balcony studio staterooms. These staterooms are based on a new modular design, with a “more residential atmosphere”, and all the gadgetry you‘d wish for, including USB ports.

Food and Dining

Ovation’s new concept of Dynamic Dining eliminates set dining times or assigned seating, no main dining rooms and no formal night. There are 18 restaurants including the specialty venues, none with more than 500 diners. Complimentary options include: American Icon Grill, Pan-Asian food, formal dining at The Grande, The Café @ Two70 with gourmet casual dining, SeaPlex Dog House, Italian cuisine Sorrento, and Windjammers Marketplace for buffet and bakery.

Entertainment

A Broadway-style production is presented in the Main Theatre. In the two-story Music Hall enjoy live performances, DJs, theme party nights, two or three billiard tables, and more. “Two70”, seating 475, presents panoramic views of the ocean through glass walls three decks high. During daytime sit back and relax in the living-room space alongside the café. In the evening it transforms into a theatre with spectacular entertainment with live performers, aerialists, video and digital scenery during show times. The show is repeated over multiple nights. North Star (complimentary) carries13 guests, one wheel-chair passenger, and an operator. SeaPlex is the largest indoor active space at sea. Experience a circus school with flying trapeze, basketball, bumper cars, roller skating, and in the evenings it becomes a disco nightclub. Sky diving is complimentary for 3 years and older. Alternatively, just stroll around the Royal Promenade and shop duty-free, or for a quiet time retire to the Library/Card Room or Internet Café.
