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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Standing Ovation for this Lovely New Ship

Just returned from a fantastic week-long cruise on the new Ovation of the Seas. We were on its sister ship, Anthem of the Seas last May, and although they are both Quantum class, cruising on Ovation was a marked improvement over our experience on Anthem. We enjoyed Anthem, but it wasn't as polished or as hassle free as Ovation. The food on Ovation was much better, the service was excellent and ...

Outstanding cruise members were our stateroom attendant 11162 and 11170 All the staff were excellent but especially - Pablo the Brazilian bar waiter in silk, Rahman in the grande, Sebastian the polish chef, Kamel the Turkish head waiter and also the Albanian headwaiter in Chic I can't remember his name though. The breakfast egg chef with the Caribbean accent at the station on the left was ...

My wife and I were on the third cruise for this new ship. We heard some bad stories from the first two cruises, but this one was amazing! From the check in, being taken through security by our Royal Genie, yes we had a Royal Genie before they started the program on May 1st. Had our bags in our Sky Loft Suite within three hours of hitting the dock. Free unlimited drink package for both, free ...

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 ...

Maiden voyage out of Southampton. From dropping off the car to getting on board within 20mins. Had the red carpet rolled out, with the paps! taking pictures. Glass of fizz when we got on board and ship was decorated with balloons - nice touch. The ship is lovely, this is a great class. Restaurants all good food and excellent service, couldn't pick a fault. We are really easy going and get ...

We chose this cruise because of the ports it was stopping and this was our first trip to Europe. We have cruised with RC several times and while the Ovation of the Seas is an amazing ship, this was the most disappointing cruise we have ever taken out of 12. We did not receive ANY of our Crown and Anchor amenities/perks. Our travel agent had scheduled a birthday celebration for my husband's 50th ...

Embarkation was amazingly quick and the red carpet treatment with the press into the cruise terminal was great fun. I was on Ovation within what seemed minutes. There were a few people who had stayed on from the 3 night cruise and said it was extremely busy and very hard to get served in the bars. I was a little worried but I need not have been, apart for the Music Hall which was busy service was ...
