The cruise industry is in a tough spot, they have had to somehow survive the last 2 years with virtually no income stream. Right now as they are preparing to bring everything back, they are also suffering from staffing shortages. Prior to our cruise, we had researched what activities would be on this ship. From shows like Pixels and a Beautiful Dream, to activities such as archery, wine tasting, ...

Booked this cruise as a last minute replacement for a Holland America cruise that kept getting changed... Looked like a great deal. Little did we know that the "great deal" meant poor food service and lack of many amenities. I have been on nearly a dozen cruises on various cruise lines, and if it weren't for the ports and scenery of Alaska, I would have asked for my money ...

Alaska has always been on my bucket list and we found a great deal so off we went. Embarkation was seamless so first impression was great. Enthusiasm was greatly diminished when upon reaching our cabin, our sea pass cards (room key) did not work. It took 3 trips to guest services and one and a half hours later to resolve the issue. Dinner time at the main dining room was a disaster as the ...

I live in Vancouver. I wanted a cruise that I wouldn’t have to fly for and a nice ship with great amenities and cool things to do so I picked Ovation. I also loved that it was an 8 day sailing so I would get an extra day, little did I know I’d regret that! Embarkation was smooth, but from the people I met thru a group, half were asked for their Covid tests and half were not? Right off the ...

First the positive. Service crew and dining staff were excellent and caring. Balcony cabin was spacious and comfortable. Entertainment was quite good and lots to do on ship. One of our bags did not arrive after sailing and called guest services who put out an alert to service staff who found within thirty minutes on another deck. Kudos to them Now the negative. Worst food I have had on a ...

Felt very safe on this cruise. Ship 45% full, many precautions taken, although I suspect the few children were the only ones on the cruise unvaccinated. Crew seemed ecstatic to be sailing again. As always, RCL does everything they can to meet your needs and make your vacation a success. Negatives were all the shows were at 9:30pm! Movies were sparse, or shown outside in the 50 degree ...

Vancouver the day before and stayed at the Mariott which is within walking distance to the pier, Embarkation was easyas we did everything on-line beforehand, just scaned us in, drop off luggage and we on boarded. We did US customs in Vancouver so there was not an expedited embarkation for repeat gusets. We were familiar with the ship as we had sailed on its sister ship, Anthem of the Seas. ...

Overall the Ovation of the Ship is a beautiful large passenger ship. It had 4600 passengers but didn't seem crowded except on deck when it was warm and sunny as all of the people came out of hiding to get a deck chair. I had a solo interior cabin which while small was good at has a normal double bed and the same bathroom as regular rooms. it had the virtual balcony which I liked. The food in ...
