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

As occupants of the Royal Suite, I would have expected that we should at least be provided with bottled water and not have to keep collecting it from the bars. This is the most expensive cabin on this ship and I expected better. Was told ... Read more

We have cruised before with Princess, had high hopes of Ovation of the Seas but were so disappointed. Don't build a ship for 5,000 people if you have no idea how you will handle those numbers. Could rant at length but in summary: Good ... Read more

This ship is probably the most beautiful ship we've ever sailed on (we've done about 15 cruises)! Of course, being new helps, but it's much more than that. They've really gone out of their way to make it visually appealing, from the ... Read more
