Did 3 short B2B's on Ovation out of Hong Kong And Shenzhen and enjoyed all of them. Loved the mix of different cultures on board. Not our first time on this class of ship so felt like home before we even boarded. The service and friendliness from the crew was as good I have seen on any ship. Food was good, mainly geared towards Asian tastes but still plenty of variety. One of the cruises had 4600 ...

We chose this cruise as an interesting initial itinerary attracted our attention. Unfortunately Boracay was changed due to its closure but we decided to continue anyway. The alternative port was Subic Bay was did not have very much to offer close by. I wouldn't really recommend Subic Bayu as a destination (nothing to do there) although the local people were very friendly. If you do go there try ...

I normally just read reviews, but after this cruise I thought I could counter some of the previous negative reviews with a positive one. This is a bit lengthly as a warning but I hope to help others get a better underling of the Asian market. After reading previous reviews on here about Ovation of the Seas, my wife and I came onboard with a lower expectation. We were pleasantly surprised. ...

We wanted a taste of Vietnam and this cruise after returning from London to Hong Kong was a good way to break up the trip to Adelaide. The good First of all the ship itself is gorgeous, the cabin was excellent and I had the best night's sleep. Their care and attention in preventing any outbreaks of norovirus was excellent with being guided to the wash basins outside the main buffet dining ...

This cruise and the two following cruises on June 1 and June 6 were booked as an offering by Cruise 1st on a back to back basis, AND SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN OFFERED TO UK CUSTOMERS. The whole ship, including the food, and entertainment, was designed and set up to cater for Chinese and other Asian guests, NOT US. SIMPLY NOT UP TO STANDARD AND VERY VERY DISAPPOINTING. Noise level on board and ...

We have had 7 cruises, 4 being with RCL and Ovation being our 5th and most likely our last with RCL! We flew to Hong Kong from Australia and were prepared for the chaos and larger volume of people that we were to encounter, so whilst embarkation was a little disorganised, it was to be expected. Our balcony room was well designed with a larger bathroom than experienced on previous ships and there ...

A terrible experience on ovation of the seas! Not a holiday! EMBARKATION - did an online check in and made an appointment time check in! On arrival, all this arrangement does not arrange by rci! When check with rci staff, they just tell me to line up like others of hundreds with hours of waiting on line. Rci staff said that the online appointment and check in - is just a ...

Enjoyable cruise to Japan

We chose this cruise to celebrate a significant birthday of a close friend, there was a party of 10. Overall we were very happy with this beautiful ship, and the excellent service we are used to on RCL. We had been on Ovation before, on her maiden voyage through the Panama Canal and loved it then. This time was perhaps not so good, for example the menu was the same in each of the 4 dining rooms, ...

Could have been a whole lot better with a little more attention to detail

Chance to revisit Hong Kong and visit Japan for the first time. Embarkation very smooth and trouble free, although a lot of walking involved, so those not so mobile may need assistance. Disembarkation not as smooth - no luggage trollies in baggage reclaim area, had to struggle a bit with cases to find ground transportation. Ship's décor. and cabin décor. and layout very good. Some ...

This was our 4th cruise and 1st with RCCL this year. We chose this particular cruise as we’d never been to Japan. Because the ship sailed out of Hong Kong, we were anticipating a large contingent of passengers from Hong Kong and mainland China. While more than half of the passengers were Asian, and some spoke limited English, there was a significant number of passengers from Australia, North ...
