Ovation of the Seas

Royal Caribbean’s state-of-the-art cruise ship, Ovation of the Seas, joined the fleet in spring 2016. Ovation of the Seas joins Quantum Class as the 25th vessel in Royal Caribbean’s International fleet.

Those who sail onboard Ovation of the Seas can look forward to a new adventure every day, waking up in new and exciting destinations while sailing onboard one of the world’s most technologically advanced cruise ships. With hi-tech smart features from robotic bartenders to an enhanced onboard purchasing system, Ovation of the Seas wow’s at every opportunity.

The wow factor flows throughout the ship with an exciting range of stateroom categories including spacious rooms and new innovations. Guests can choose from a varied selection of staterooms including Virtual Balconies which provide geographically accurate digital ocean views plus destination highlights, or a cabin overlooking the bustling Boardwalk. This ship also offers three different categories for Suite Class guests; Sea, Sky, and Star. Each of these boasts some fantastic benefits ranging from luxury L'occitane toiletries and access to an exclusive restaurant, right up to your own personal 'Royal Genie', who is on hand to make sure your cruise holiday is everything you dreamt it would be.
Ovation of the Seas certainly doesn't disappoint where dining is concerned. You've got your main dining rooms - American Icon, Grande, Silk, and Chic - which serve a wonderful choice of international cuisine in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, and then plenty of other casual and speciality restaurants;
  • Windjammer Marketplace - great for parties with varying tastes, this restaurant offers all sorts of tasty, international dishes

Grab a fast food treat like a tasty hot dog in the Seaplex from the Dog House, or a freshly prepared sandwich, salad, or pastry at one of the onboard cafes such as La Patisserie, Cafe Promenade, or The Cafe @ Two70.

No evening onboard will be spent in boredom on Ovation of the Seas, thanks to the fantastic entertainment options there are. The spacious Royal Theatre hosts some spectacular all-out productions akin to those seen on Broadway, so be sure to check your cruise timetable to find out what is on and when - and make reservations for anything that piques your interest! As well as this, the fabulous Two70 venue hosts an array of performances from live music to acrobatics. By day this space offers a social environment with panoramic sea views, and by night the windows become screens for innovative projections that serve to enhance the shows.
You'll also find nightly live music and DJ sessions at the atmospheric Music Hall, as well as live pianists at the Schooner Bar and regular sets in the other bars and lounges;
  • Pool Bar - grab a refreshing drink on the go (alcoholic or soft) at this al fresco venue
  • Boleros - a Latin-themed bar serving delicious cocktails such as mojitos and caipirinhas
  • Sky Bar - sip on a drink outside while never missing a minute of sunshine

  • North Star Bar - relax here after a journey up in the North Star to see the stunning surrounding views
  • Sunshine Bar - find freshly made cocktails, smoothies, and detox juices at this stylish venue
Those wanting to take part in a little flutter should head to the casino for a range of games including slot machines, Texas Hold 'em, Blackjack and Roulette.

 The Vitality at Sea Spa and Fitness Centre is the place to go to enhance your health and wellness during your cruise. The gym offers a wealth of state-of-the-art equipment to use, plus the option to take part in group classes like Yoga. Plus, after a hard work out, feel rejuvenated and relaxed by spending time in the spa facilities. You can simply use the loungers and relax, or indulge in a treatment like a massage or facial.
Ovation of the Seas is home to SeaPlex - a fantastic activity centre that offers families plenty of exciting things to do together. Show off your skills on the roller skating rink, and if you're that good why not show off your moves at the roller disco in the evenings? Have some fun on the bumper cars, where you can drive as wildly as you like! Another unexpected option is to go to Circus School - here you can learn how to perform tricks and acrobatics in a safe environment.
In addition to this centre, the ship is home to many Royal Caribbean favourites like the towering rock-climbing wall, the Flowrider surf simulator, and the iFly indoor sky-diving experience. There is also a sports court where you can play team games such as basketball and football, as well as table tennis facilities. Those who simply want to splash around will love the swimming pool choices too.
For something a little less active, but equally as exciting, be sure to have a go on the North Star viewing platform. This is essentially a pod which gets raised to around 300 feet above sea level, with window walls allowing extensive views of the ocean, not to mention the ship below you.
Ovation of the Seas also offers an art gallery full of thought-provoking pieces, and of course ample shopping opportunities for those needing a little retail therapy.
