Ovation of the Seas Cruise Review to Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)
Sail Date: May 10, 2016
Cabin Number: 11221
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 1 year ago
An amazing ship for all ages of passengers.
Fabulous and unique production shows.
The Windjammer buffets were excellent in every way, the staff could not have been more helpful.
I do NOT care for the "Dynamic Dining" reservation system as it prohibits people from, randomly, meeting others (as with the "anytime" dining in main dining rooms of most ships).
For that reason I may not sail on Quantum-class ships again.
Food and Dining
Restaurant food was satisfactory, the staff tried hard to please.
Loved the atmosphere of the Solarium Bistro.
Jazz/tap with Carolyn excellent.
Magic Mike puts a new spin on "Thriller!"
Excellent choice of activities and facilities.
Most guest performers were excellent.
Music around the ship was varied, something to please everybody.
Great Cruise Director.
Service and Staff
Also for internet assistance.
Crown and Anchor service not up to standard of most RCCL ships.
All other services from staff and crew were very good.
Design could have allowed for more deck space around outdoor pool and a larger exercise studio for morning stretch etc.
Cabin / Stateroom
Great to have a kettle for coffee/tea. Loved the large couch and big selection of storage space.
Make reservations in advance for the main shows. They are amazing!
If travelling solo and the cruise is for more than one week, do NOT book an inside, solo studio cabin. They are very small. The regular inside staterooms cost more but are superb and have the large "virtual balcony". ENJOY!
