I was very excited to board the world's newest mega super liner, only to be disappointed by countless failures by Royal Caribbean. Embarkation in Singapore - Total nightmare. Disorganized, slow, no one had a clue what was going on. ... Read more

I'll go over the not enjoyable parts....then the enjoyable. First off the ship is just too big for the crew to handle certain situations. If you like to stand in long lines, then you will love this ship. The tours we went on were not well ... Read more

All too brief 3 night cruise out of Singapore on the nearly new Ovation of the Seas. Too much to see in three days. Ship is massive but very well set out. We had a balcony cabin which was quite large and beautifully appointed. Plenty of ... Read more

This cruise did not deliver what was promised. The star attractions (i.e. North Star and iFly) were fully booked by the time we boarded. There was no transparent reservations system notified to us before boarding. To quote guest services: ... Read more
