Ovation of the Seas Cruise Review by Chocaholic1
- Sail Date: May 2016
- Destination: Asia
Production shows are truly amazing! Guest performers and In-house entertainers were very talented.
I have taken many RCCL cruises, consider myself a loyal customer to RCCL and Celebrity.
On this ship RCCL seemed unconcerned about the long line-ups at Guest Services, Crown & Anchor Desk or to wait patiently, in no specific line, to get internet help.
Diamond Club and Concierge Lounge are very pleasant venues, both were busy in the evenings.
As a solo traveller I did not like the dining system, no chance to dine and meet new people randomly. (I normally use the "anytime" dining system on cruise-ships, which allows for being seated at different, large, tables each evening, always chatting with different passengers.) "Dynamic Dining" - thumbs down

Ridiculous false drawer below the clothes closet, so shallow it was only good to hold papers etc. (The photo shown on the Cruise Critic website for this category of cabin is incorrect - the large virtual balcony, floor to ceiling, is in the regular inside staterooms, not the studios.)

(Cost is less if you walk to the outside of the cruise-port terminal then take a waiting taxi.)
