Clean cruising where good. I was told that I wouldn't get the full cruise experience. This was just a try cruise as we have 3 children and was thinking of doing a longer one with them."

Ovation of the Seas Overview

As one of Royal Caribbean's newest ships, 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. From November 2018 until mid-April 2019 Ovation sails from Sydney to visit Tasmania (23 November), popular South Pacific islands, and New Zealand. All sailings are roundtrips ex Sydney. Meanwhile, 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. Consider crossing the Pacific to Seattle in April/May 2019 vis French Polynesia and Hawaii. You could follow this up with a 7-night Alaska Glacier Cruise.

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.
