Ship experiences

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
Had a 2 night specialty restaurant package, Jamie’s and Chops grille were both amazing as usual. MDR was great. Windjammer is not my preferred place for dinner but it was ok.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Our MDR head waiter was Avishek, he is usually in Chops Grille, but was just coming back from vacation so has to spend some time in the MDR. By far the best service I have ever had in the dining room on any of my 25 cruises.

Ship Quality

5 out of 5
I love RCI “Ovation of the seas” . She is such a beautiful ship.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
I was very lucky, I had an inside guarantee room and received a disability access room. So much space, huge bathroom.

Ship tip

Remember to book early for your onboard adventures like North Star, Ifly as they get booked up very quickly and you wouldn’t want to miss out

Ports of call

Noumea, New Caledonia Did not visit port

I didn’t get off, been a few times before

Mystery Island, Vanuatu
