Ovation of the Seas — Ship Review Rating: 4.1 out of 5 based on 262 ratings.

Life aboard Ovation of the Seas
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.

Ovation of the Seas embraces a number of first-ever cruise features such as: the top deck adult solarium and pool with retractable roof; the complimentary North Star, a London Eye-style capsule on the top of the ship on an articulated arm that swings passengers over the ocean at a height of 100m above sea level; a sky diving wind tunnel in a flight chamber made of glass; robotic entertainment display screens; and for kids and young-at-heart adults there are bumper cars, a surf simulator, roller skating, and circus facilities. Innovations bring the outside ocean inside and offer staterooms larger than ever. Her latest technology includes high speed Internet (as if at home), onboard mobile device app, and RFID WOWBands (alternate to SeaPass card). Check-in goal is 10 minutes.

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.

Interior View Studios are for single occupancy with no single supplement, yet come with full size bed and bathroom, can sleep up to two, and on your flat-screen TV view real-time outside views - interesting and novel. Ocean View Staterooms come with two twin beds and panoramic window. There are 14 suite categories, all with balconies, that include Spa (with hot tub), Loft (two decks overlooking the aft of the ship), and Owner’s, and come variously with large entertainment areas, fabulous views, two bathrooms and dining areas. Choose your level of luxury for your family size. In all categories of staterooms there are some cabins that are inter-connecting to accommodate families.

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.

For an extra charge there are nine options that include: the debut franchise Jamie’s Italian eatery, Michel’s Genuine Pub, Divinely Decadence in the Solarium Bistro for the calorie-conscious, Wonderland for molecular gastronomy, Izumi Japanese for sushi, the Chef’s Table (seats just 14), classic burgers and shakes at Johnny Rockets, and Café Promenade. Menus feature healthy, vegetarian and kosher options. Special dietary needs can be catered for by giving advanced notice. Menus change daily throughout the cruise.

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.

On-shore excursions and explorations can be pre-booked or arranged on board. Choose from a range of workshops to bring out your creativity and expand your knowledge. The Vitality at Sea Spa and Fitness Center is fully equipped and runs a variety of beauty services and fitness classes. Activities include use of the outdoor sports deck, complete with mini-golf course, golf simulators, boxing ring, whirlpools, and a full-sized sports court. The Solarium is exclusively for adults. The ship's Youth Zone is exclusively for kids and teens and offers Adventure Ocean youth programmes, and the H2O Zone waterpark with its FlowRider surf simulator. And every RCI ship has a rock-climbing wall.
