Ovation of the Seas overview
As one of the world’s most innovative ships, Ovation of the Seas is designed for cutting-edge exploration and adventure. A member of Royal Caribbean’s Quantum-class , Ovation provides revolutionary onboard experiences such as RipCord by iFly, the high-octane skydiving simulator, plus imagination-bending dining venues, and a high-tech Bionic Bar that employs robotic mixologists.
Adventurous cruisers can experience breathtaking 360-degree views from 300 feet above sea level in the North Star observation pod, or they can learn to fly in an exhilarating trapeze class at SeaPlex, the largest indoor activity area at sea. Plus, with a rock-climbing wall, bumper cars, an onboard arcade, and FlowRider, the ship’s surf simulator, travelers can keep busy for even the longest stretches at sea. There’s always something for the kids to do, too, with Royal Caribbean’s Adventure Ocean program, which provides educational and entertainment opportunities for kids 3 to 11.
