Overall this ship and crew are magnificent, only irritant being the long journey for a smoke. Would definitely return to Ovation of the Seas, RCCL seem to have gotten most things correct here.

Well laid out and spacious. Special mention for Glen our attendant, always available and always smiling.

Ship tip

Smokers although catered for in the 2 smoking areas, both are in the back and no consideration for anyone at the front of the ship. Twice I left the music hall for a smoke, went up 2 decks, walked about 1/2 km and twice on returning, both my seat and drink were gone. When suggested to management an area at the front you could see your words were just passing over. TV in rooms a total waste of time, same 3 programs repeating over and over for 9 nights.

Stayed overnight in Bangkok and had a super time. Special thanks to Travel Hub for sorting out a super tour. Sam our guide and driver couldn't have been better if they tried.
