Sail Date: Oct 2018
Cabin: Ocean View
North Star looking to sunset.
OV at Circular Quay.

Keen to try the larger ship for the first time.

The OVation is a beautiful ship only 2 yr. young, the artwork & walk throughs are great, 270 at back of ship is great venue with the robots entertaining the humans. The theatre handles the large number of passengers & the smaller venues cope well with passenger numbers.

The staff were excellent, cannot fault, they are eager to please & satisfy any requirements whether dietary or something else. Management are on the ball with this ship, it shows all the way down to staff, service was first class. The Cruise Critic get together was a bit ordinary, scheduled at 930am in the Music Hall, on the other hand there were a lot of us to handle & plenty of onboard stuff to attend to in the venues.

Cabin Review

Ocean View

Cabin 2N

Plenty of room for 2 people, cabin steward best ever, window was unobstructed. Refrigerator & electric hot water jug with complimentary tea in room.

Port Reviews


Go to the Maritime Museum & the main museum short walk from ship port, they are both full of very interesting stuff.
