This was our second cruise on the Ovation. We had upgraded to the Grand suite and definitely worth it with all the inclusions of specialty restaurants, butler, vip dining etc and the room was amazing and spacious. Great storage for us both and the view of the sounds as we sat on the balcony was wonderful. Your room receives a daily planner of activities and I wish they would update over the speakers throughout the day as a reminder as there is so many things on and spread out across the ship I found it difficult sometimes to plan properly. The food in the coastal kitchen and solarium was outstanding and recommend booking the Chefs table early as it sells out quickly. With 5 courses matched with wines including the chef who explains all about each dish and why the wine was chosen is a great experience. The only con is the constant up selling from staff, but say no once they tend to leave you alone.

Cabin Review

Grand Suite - 1 Bedroom
Cabin GS 9462
The Grand suite is spacious and comfortable for two people.
Plenty of storage room for all your luggage. Full size bath and shower that is decorated tastefully.
The balcony is large and spacious that is on the bump section of the ship with unobstructed views. The room and surrounds are quiet and never heard any noise.
