Ovation of the Seas Cruising Tips:
With Ovation of the Seas making its inaugural cruise season in Australia later this year and we have put together some useful information and tips that will make your holiday aboard the most advanced ship to call Australia home an enjoyable and unforgettable experience.

Two of our team, Breeanna & Hayley were among the first Australian travel consultants invited to experience Ovation of the Seas during her first sailing out of Singapore, so we thought we would share some of their photos and tips with you also.



Specialty Restaurants:
With specialty restaurants a popular fare aboard Ovation of the Seas it’s a great idea to pre-book your dining before boarding the ship. You can pre-purchase and reserve a date and time that suits you at a restaurant of your choice. Reservations can be made on board or through your cruise planner with pricing and restaurant information including menu’s available online.

Be sure not to miss your chance to experience delicious culinary flare such as Jamie’s Italian or the innovative Wonderland Imaginative Cuisine restaurant.

Tip: To truly enjoy the experience that Wonderland has to offer enter with an open mind and get lost in the whimsical décor and experience.



On Board entertainment:
Ovation is debuting two new shows that will feature in the Royal Theatre.

The Dream is a feel good song and dance show featuring fantastic special effects including a steam train and fire breathing dragon. Dream is Live, Love, Legs is an all singing and dancing show featuring serial acrobatics and smooth choreography.

With two shows nightly beginning around 9pm and 10:45pm the 1300 seat Royal Theatre fills up fast. The shows are free of charge however booking is recommended to secure your seat. Booking can be done online, at the box office or on the interactive tablets located around the ship.

Tip: The later show normally attracts less people so is great for large groups who wish to sit together.



Royal IQ App:
Before you leave for your exciting cruise aboard Ovation of the Seas be sure to download the Royal IQ app. It is your personal vacation management app and allows you to seamlessly access all of your information from your cruise planner.

The app is free and you won’t require a Wifi package to access it while on board. You can make dinner reservations in advance, book last minute seats to a show, book shore excursions, and schedule times for on board activities or easily manage an existing reservation.

For a fee Royal IQ offers unlimited calling and texting to anyone on board who has the Royal IQ communication package. To begin download the Royal IQ app from iTunes or the Google Play store, once at the pier connect to “Royal Wifi” and register your device by entering your name as per your set-sail pass and enter other required information. You are then ready to use your Royal IQ app.

Tip: Switch your phone to airplane mode while using the app to avoid international roaming charges from your phone carrier.



Bionic Bar:
The most talked about bars on the ship is the Bionic bar. Dubbed the ‘robot bar’ your drinks will be shaken, stirred and served by two Makr Shakr robotic bartenders.

Drinks both alcoholic and non-alcoholic are ordered via a tablet with two screens on either side of the bar displaying who has placed the order and what ingredients are being used. When your drink is made it is pushed down a chute towards you.

There is some seating for you to enjoy your drink and watch the robotic bar tenders in action. While it’s a fun novelty and a one of a kind experience you have to try at least once it may not become your regular evening hang out.

Tip: Only passengers 18 years or more can order from the bar when cruising in Australia.



Royal Tots Nursery:
Ovation of the Seas has a nursery onboard and is available for babies 6mths to 2 years. This is a paid service as is run by qualified child carers, not just a kids club.

Costings are $6/hr per baby up until 6 pm and $8/hr up until midnight. With limited spaces it is highly recommended to book your baby in on the first day of the cruise. Every parent with children below 6 years old will receive a ship phone, so that staff can make contact if need be, unlike the old system of pages and parent having to come back to the nursery.



RipCord by iFly:
Debuting on sister ships Quantum and Anthem of the Seas, Ovation also features the very popular RipCord by iFly.

This is a complimentary activity however its popularity does mean that those who do not pre-reserve their spot may miss out on experiencing this exciting experience. Spots can be pre-reserved on board or online through your Cruise planner. Introductory sessions are free; however, any advanced sessions attract a fee.

There are limited sessions per day usually with 12 “skydivers” per group. Sessions typically run from 8am to 10am and 4pm to 9pm. Weight restrictions do apply and all participants must sign a waiver form which can be completed on the interactive TV screen in your cabin.

Tip: As a requirement of this activity ensure you wear socks and lace up shoes before checking in for your session.



Some more things to know about Ovation:
All interior staterooms feature virtual balconies which is an exciting feature for those looking for an affordable cabin type with a ‘virtual’ view.

Each room features 80-inch HD screens that create a balcony view complete with railings and the sound of the sea. Don’t worry if you get tired of looking at the ocean you can always turn off both the sound and screen.

There are no formal nights. On board Ovation there are no specific formal nights so guests are not required to bring their best clothes aboard. In the evening smart casual attire is perfectly acceptable when dining at the restaurants.

However for those who love to get dressed in their formal attire you can dine at The Grande restaurant where they have a formal dress code every night.
