Ovation of the Seas

If you choose to sail with Royal Caribbean's Ovation of the Seas, you can look forward to a new adventure every day, waking up in 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 will wow you at every opportunity. Whether you've chosen a solo voyage, a family holiday or romantic couples retreat, you won't be disappointed by the facilities available onboard. Stay active with the numerous high-octane activities or relax by the pool; enjoy spectacular evening entertainment or relax in the one of the many bars; sample tasty casual dining or dress up in your best clothes for a formal dinner; there's no end to what you can do during your unforgettable RCL ocean adventure.

Ovation of the Seas certainly doesn't cut any corners where dining is concerned. To start with, there are three main dining rooms - American Icon, Grande, Silk, and Chic - which serve a wonderful choice of international cuisine in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, all included in your fare, as is Windjammer Marketplace, Dog House and Sorrento's Pizza, all serving tasty grub that you won't want to miss out on.

That isn't all though, as there are plenty of other speciality restaurants serving cuisine from around the world:

  • Jamie's Italian - this well-known restaurant serves delicious pasta and other Italian dishes
  • Izumi - for tasty, fresh and made-to-order Japanese cuisine such as sushi and sashimi
  • Chop's Grille - fans of steak and seafood should opt for this stylish venue at least once during their cruise

  • Coastal Kitchen - exclusive to Royal suite class guests only, this venue offers a wonderful menu of tasty and varied dishes

If hunger strikes throughout the rest of the day, the ship also offers a range of casual and quick eateries. Grab a fast food treat like a tasty hot dog in the Seaplex 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

  • Bionic Bar - where robotic arms prepare cocktails ordered from tablets
  • Vintages Wine Bar - sample some delicious bottles from all over the world
  • 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

Meanwhile, those wanting to take part in a little flutter on Ovation of the Seas 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 onboard Royal Caribbean's Ovation of the Seas 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. After a hard workout, 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 or 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 where 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 ride on the North Star viewing platform. A pod which gets raised to around 300 feet above sea level, with window walls allowing extensive views of the ocean, this isn't for those with a fear of heights! If you want to stay on the ground, this cruise ship also boasts an art gallery full of thought-provoking pieces, and of course ample shopping opportunities for those needing a little retail therapy.


Thanks to Royal Caribbean, sailing with all the family is easy and stress-free when you choose Ovation of the Seas. As well as flexible dining options and onboard activities perfect for guests of all ages throughout the day, there is also the popular, free of charge Adventure Ocean programme. If you have little ones aged 6 months to 11 years, they will be able to join an age-appropriate group where they can get involved in arts and crafts, science experiments, sports tournaments and more. Plus, with a dedicated space just for teens, 12-17 year olds are also well catered for during their cruise.
