We are a young family that went on our 2nd cruise for some much needed RnR during the school holidays. Initially, we were a little worried about the cruise being a little too Asian themed, having read the reviews here, but we managed to ... Read more

Walked into this cruise experience with expectancy, yet sprinkled with a little apprehension, because I've heard tons of good reviews about the Royal Caribbean cruises in general but read a few negative ones about Ovation in particular. ... Read more

We got lumbered with this cruise because RCI cancelled the original cruise we booked and didn't notify us until after we booked non refundable flights and hotel. This cruise was two days shorter and with an inferior itinerary meaning we ... Read more

The ship was great and overall had an okay time. Embarkment was smooth and relatively effortless. The Cafe Promenade was great (the pizza I heard was amazing) for late night snacks. Our cabin was on the 7th deck - had a balcony. ... Read more

After reading the reviews, and even though this was cruise #55 for me, I was still a bit nervous as it was my first Asia departure on a non-charter. I was taking a friend for their first cruise, so was hoping for the best. Overall, I was ... Read more

The last time I cruised with Legend of the Seas in 2013 was very positive, that we decided to embark on a longer cruise in a balcony cabin for a better experience. The 5N cruise included a half day at Penang, and full days at Langkawi and ... Read more

We choose this cruise first and foremost for the itinerary so it was less of a concern that much of what we enjoyed when we started cruising with RCI 15 years ago was absent. No greeting with a glass of bubbly on embarkation day. No big ... Read more

While we appreciate that this ship is out of Singapore & very much caters to the Asian population there are other nationalities who like to cruise & should be catered for more than this ship did. The food while mediocre is very ... Read more
