Review summary

Ovation of the Sea is an excellent ship with excellent staff. Cruising to Alaska is a must for all. The views and sites were breath taking. RCCL knocked it out of the park once again.

This was our first time cruising out of Seattle and it was a seamless process.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

Main Dining Room was not as good as Oasis Class, but Specialty Restaurants were excellent.

Onboard Activities

5 out of 5
Bumper Cars were extremely fun. Roller skating was a blast. We also did I fly which definitely is a must. The Northstar is also a must.

The group Mo5aic was outstanding. The comedian was average.

Service and Staff

4 out of 5
Main Dining Room was just average. Head Waiter was annoying coming around just for a tip. The balance of all other staff, including room steward, and other personnel was excellent.

Train ride and suspension bridge tour had excellent views and our tour guide gave us all the history of the city

The Captain was able to get 90% through the arm and did a great job of spending time at the furthest point. He also came on the PA system when the bridge saw whales.

Victoria, British Columbia

5 out of 5
What a wonderful town. So glad our cruise line scheduled an entire day in Victoria. Would definitely go back.
