Destinations were interesting from Barcelona via Suez canal to Singapore on a back to back cruise. Petra was a good shore excursion which was otherwise difficult to see. Other shore excursions were also well organised and interesting.

The ship was the newest cruise ship in the world at the time and still had the "new car" look and feel. The staff were excellent and being a new ship, every port had the local officials to welcome us. Sailing was smooth and the cabins good. There were 17 restaurants, most complimentary and the choices were good for a 30 night cruise. We had booked a restricted view balcony cabin and were not sure what that meant. We were pleasantly surprised to find the cabin spacious and the balcony good. The top section of a lifeboat restricted the view directly below to the water, but the distance view was acceptable. It also kept a lot of the wind away from the balcony which was good. On the second leg of the cruise we were moved to an unrestricted view cabin which we appreciated. The ship sailed well and the stabilisers that appeared to work. Well done Ovation of the Seas.
