It was an overall excellent experience. The staff, our stateroom, the ship, the food, the entertainment...it was all outstanding. The cruise ship stops were excellent. I wish we could have spent more time in Seoul, South Korea, but I loved the time we had in South Korea. I would recommend this experience to anyone and everyone.

Large, attractive ship with nice staterooms and public areas. Outdoor decks, long jogging track, rock wall, North Star, iFly, surfing area, and roller rink were nice extras.

Entertainment and shore excursions have been much better on other cruises we have taken.

Staff was friendly and helpful.

There is a lot I liked about the Ovation and some I did not like.  The ship was clean and large, easy to learn your way around.  I did not like making reservations for the shows.  I'm on vacation don't like to plan.  I thought the merchandize on the ship was high end and expensive.  Also wished there was a small convenience type store. after 12 days the itinerary was boring. The tv showed the same things over and over and over.  I went in Jan/Feb. thought there was too much kids stuff on tv and at the Theater.

The staterooms are spacious and comfortable except the beds were more firm than I like.  The food in the Windjammer is pretty much the same every day and got boring.  We visited the dining rooms instead, and there was good variety and the quality of the food was great.  The ship is nice, but did not have the wow factor I expected for the price and for a new ship.  It was difficult to get into the new attractions as they required reservations and were booked up before the cruise began.  The staff and crew on the ship were great.  I felt that I received great service from everyone.

Be sure and register early and make your reservations for the shows and any extra dinners.

Do not sail on the Ovation. You will be disappointed. You will only get to use the I fly once for less than 2 min if at all for the entire cruise. Same goes for bumper cars and the North Star. These are gimmicks not real attractions. Often they are closed or not working at all.

Great if you have kids, but don't expect excellent entertainment. Lunch dining time ends at 1:00 PM, which is extremely early, especially since we got back from Seoul around 10:00 PM the previous night.
