The Stunning Main Port of

Ovation of the Seas Overview

The Ovation of the Seas cruise ship takes holidays at sea to a whole new level. Kitted out with the latest technology and featuring entertainment venues that seriously rival their land-based counterparts, this vessel pushes the boundaries in all the right ways.

Think of her as a resort upon the ocean; there are so many amazing activities on board, with something to suit everyone, from thrill-seekers to wellness warriors. A holiday on board the Ovation of the Seas is a truly remarkable experience.


Ovation of the Seas specs
Weighing in at 167,800 tonnes and spanning across 16 decks, the Ovation of the Seas is Royal Caribbean's largest cruise yet. She measures 1,142 feet in length, 135 feet in width and has a maximum capacity of 4,905 passengers.


Inside Ovation of the Seas
The Ovation of the Seas shares many similarities with her sister ships, Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas, all of which have innovative new architectural features such as the 'North Star', a glass capsule where guests can gently ascend 330 feet above sea level and enjoy 360 degree views of the ocean.

The interior decor throughout the ship is modern and tasteful. In the cabins and suites, you'll find the blue and white colour scheme is nicely complemented by soft lighting, plush furniture, wooden finishings and beautiful indoor plants. The public spaces spare no details, with every bar, restaurant and activity room designed to perfection. 


Ovation of the Seas restaurants and bars
As you would expect from a vessel with close to 5,000 passengers on board during peak times, the Ovation of the Seas offers an outstanding range of dining options. From traditional British pub fare to fresh Japanese delicacies to comforting American classics, there's an eatery to suit everyone's palate.

Of particular note is Royal Caribbean's partnership with celebrity chef Jamie Oliver. The hugely popular 'Jamie's Italian' restaurant is one the ship's most in-demand Specialty eateries. Jamie's fresh, modern Italian menu is an absolute delight.

The cruise ship has an equally impressive selection of lounges and bars, from the warm and welcoming Michael's Genuine Pub to the glitzy Diamond Lounge. In the Bionic Bar guests will find something a little different - order your cocktail on a tablet and it will then be delivered to you by robotic arms!


Things to do on the Ovation of the Seas
The Ovation of the Seas, and her sister vessels Quantum and Anthem, have taken cruise entertainment to the next level - and beyond. Where else at sea can you experience the feeling of flying in an air machine? Or ascend 300 feet above sea level in a jewel-shaped capsule? Be prepared to be dazzled by the outstanding array of entertainment facilities available.

The whole family will have a blast at the Seaplex entertainment park, the largest indoor sports complex at sea. Here you can ride bumper cars, go roller blading, play basketball, attend circus school and so much more. Other highlights on board include the FlowRider, a surf simulator pool, and the Two70° entertainment venue, which makes the most of Vistarama technology to bring to you crisp, high definition entertainment from 18 projectors.


Ovation of the Seas itineraries and shore excursions
A truly global vessel, the Ovation of the Seas splits her time between ports in Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. The shore excursions available therefore depend on the destination, but you can expect an array of choices, from a trip to Shuri Castle in Okinawa, Japan to swimming with dolphins in New Zealand's Bay of Plenty.



Cabins on board the Ovation of the Seas cruise ship

As with nearly every other feature on board, the Ovation of the Seas brings takes a fresh approach to sleeping arrangements. Most of the staterooms are slightly larger than the industry average, with a strong focus on quality and comfort no matter what your budget.

One of the most exciting features of note is that even interior rooms come with a view; high-definition virtual balconies have been installed throughout the ship, providing all guests with a beautiful ocean outlook. Each room is also equipped with the latest security technology - cabin keys are replaced with radio frequency wristbands and high speed broadband is available throughout the ship.

Entertainment on board the Ovation of the Seas cruise ship

Ovation of the Seas by day
Wake up early if you want to make the most of the array of activities on board the Ovation of the Seas. It would be a shame not to try everything at least once! One of the best parts about being on holiday is that you have the chance to try things you wouldn't usually do. So go on, we dare you - test your surfing skills at the Wave Loch Flowrider or overcome your fear of heights in the North Star capsule. You'll be surrounded by like-minded people having fun along the way.

You will also find all of the other traditional cruise activities on board, such as pool games, trivia competitions and arts and crafts. If you are craving some quiet solitude, find a cosy corner in the Solarium, an adults-only retreat.


Ovation of the Seas pools, gyms and spas
Feel like taking a dip? Guests can choose from four pools and 10 jacuzzis, but as if this isn't enough, there's also a water park. Luckily there are poolside restaurants to keep you hydrated and well-fed!

The fitness facilities are of an incredibly high quality and are well-stocked with the latest workout equipment. If you prefer to exercise in the fresh air, find your pace on the two-lane jogging track on Deck 15.

The Ovation of the Seas is a very busy cruise ship, but step into the Vitality Spa and you'll feel like you're in a different world. Here everything is serene, calm and quiet. Take your pick from a range of deluxe treatments and slowly feel yourself relax and unwind.


Ovation of the Seas nightlife
Where to begin? Don't wait for Friday or Saturday to enjoy a night out - you'll need every evening of the week to experience all of the amazing nightlife this ship has to offer.

The Two70° Lounge is in a class of its own, with circus-style productions - be prepared to be wowed by trapeze artists - followed by disco music later into the evening. This venue also doubles as the ship's cinema, but don't expect your average movie-watching experience. The Vistarama screen is 100 feet wide, 20 feet tall at has a 12k resolution. With specs like this, it's better than any IMAX theatre around the world and is guaranteed to be a huge drawcard for film buffs.

Other popular spots for nightlife include the music hall, casino and the North Star bar. With a total of 25 bars and cafes on board, you'll find no shortage of spots to socialise late into the evening.


Ovation of the Seas for families
Forget about the cruise destination - children will arrive in holiday heaven as soon as they step on board the Ovation of the Seas. Watch their jaws drop open in awe as they tour the ship's many entertainment facilities. This will likely be the first time they've seen so many amazing activities in one place.

Royal Caribbean's Adventure Ocean youth programme is award-winning, and it's not hard to see why. From the Seaplex entertainment park and the Adventure Science Lab to wave pools and surf simulation, your kids are going to have no trouble sleeping at night. Parents can relax and unwind knowing their children are creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Babies are welcome on board, although they have to be at least 6 months old for short trips, and 12 months old for transatlantic and transpacific voyages. There is a Royal Babies & Tots Nursery on board, as well as in-room babysitting services; both options have an hourly fee.

For older children there are age-specific programmes; Aquanauts (3-5), Explorers (6-8), Voyagers (9-11) and Teens (12-17).

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
