Not the best experience for non-chinese people by drladyj

The large majority of the non-Asain cruisers were extremely displeased with the rude behavior of the chinese cruisers (who were 90+% of the cruisers on the ship). The staff of the cruise explained that the behavior of the Chinese was due to their culture. The staff kept us 100% separated from the Chinese cruisers in the restaurants: the Chinese sat in the front and middle of the restaurants, non-chinese in the back. However, the staff were extremely nice.

This cruise is very catered to the Asian population. If your comfortable with that, then enjoy. The food, entertainment, ports of call can be a challenge with out excursions.

Disappointed Ovation of the Sea by Jmw88

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I would not sail on Ovation of the Sea again because the quality of food is bad, too many sea days and the ports are mostly boring, undeveloped and uninteresting cities. Worse of all the local excursions companies did not have much interesting places to take us but sent us to spend a lot of time at low end street vendors to shop. Those are not even place to shop. What a waste of time and money!

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

It might be worth while avoiding balcony cabins numbered x670 to x684 on the port side as there is a large smokers accommodation on deck 5. There wasn’t much smoke but we were usually aware of it when on the balcony.

Use the Royal IQ app to plan your days. Also use it to communicate with your travel mates. The calendar section is great.
