Was on Anthem last year and wanted to try the latest Quantum class ship. Very impressive ship. Very modern and geared up for the younger cruiser and Oriental market. Excellent service from all areas. Only let down was rain 5 days out of 7!! From arrival at port to getting onboard took all of 10 minutes. Give your servers a tip when you meet them and they'll treat you like royalty ...

Took a 7ngt vacation from Southampton to Barcelona on May 3rd. Weather was disappointing but the ship was impressive especially the 270 venue, the covered Solarium and the Seaplex sports venue. Staff were generally friendly and accommodating and our room, a large interior stateroom on deck 12 was modern and spacious. The virtual balcony was interesting but you do get tired of looking at what is ...

This is my review of the Ovation of the Seas based on our voyage from Southampton to Singapore in May 2016. This is a magnificent looking ship, both internal and externally. It bristles with modern engineering, technological and design elements that create a stylish ship that manages to never feel too crowded even though there are over 4,000 guests on board. It is also the most stable ship we ...

First Time Cruisers on a Brand New Ship

Having never been on a cruise before, we decided that since the brand new Ovation of the Seas was sailing from our home country, it was time to give this type of holiday a go. We stayed in a Junior Spa Suite (7236) which we were very impressed with. The room was large and well appointed with lots of storage and a really nice bathroom that was stocked with L'Occitane toiletries. The balcony was ...

Ovation of the Seas is a brand new ship and in that respect, it did not disappoint. The ship is beautiful and has a lot of nice features. It also has some things that might not appeal to everyone. This was kind of their maiden voyage and the ship will eventually stay in Beijing. We had a balcony cabin and the cabin was comfortable and has lots of storage space. The usual toiletries that you ...

I am a widower and this complicates fare prices for such a long cruise. I saw this positioning cruise offered (5 back to back cruises in one) and it was just right for me. Airfare and two hotel nights on each end were included. Their rep met us at the airport, and on embarkation, transported and escorted us through with no problems. I had a partially obst. view cabin with balcony and was ...

Booked a suite so we could get double points to take us to Diamind Plus status, having been on the Anthem last October round the canaries and this being the same class of ship we knew what to expect. Coud'nt fault the staff in particular the bar staff in Boleros who were most efficient and welcoming. Don't like the rotation of dining, we prefer the classic dining room experience so had all ...

Our party of six booked Ovation while we could and before it heads off for a life in Asia. Ovation is of course one of RCIs newest ships, with all the companies latest innovations. As well as some new attractions such as the North Star which appears in every advertisement, bumper cars and the iFly, there are new ways of doing things such as the changes to the dining. The ships size means ...

We went first time on Royal Caribbean,having previously been on Pand O and celebrity on several other cruises.The Ovation is a massive ship.The check in service was very efficient the staff were very friendly and helpful,and we got on board two and a half hours before our allotted time due to arriving early which was great.The choice of dynamic dinning was very good,we eat at a different ...
