Worth it, but irritating at times. by kylieelrick

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (young children)
Ship: Ovation of the Seas / Destination: Hawaii

All in all, we enjoyed the cruise. We do not recommend our actual room, 10232 due to noise they can't fix, but did like the room structure. If your child is under 42 inches, I would recommend another cruise as there isn't a lot for them to do on the boat and there are many days at sea. Do not book private excursions on Maui nor Kona as you tender and cannot control what time you arrive!

Great Alaska Cruise by mikedockery59

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Ovation of the Seas / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

The cruise was great. I enjoyed this better than the island cruise. We had more time at the ports. We will look at doing more like this one.

Slightly disappointed by sujejo

Still love RCI. But will not be on the Ovation again. A slightly disappointing cruise. But we are going on the Symphony is April.

Legacy Alaska Cruise by Pablitto

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Ovation of the Seas / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Wonderful cruise for senior couple with mobility issues. Ship was never crowded with plenty of eating places and lots of great food choices. Few children on this late in the summer cruise made it most enjoyable. Bad weather is the only variable to making this cruise less than memorable.

We had an amazing time! 5 of our group of 10 were first time cruisers, everything went great! and we already have our Panama Canal trip planned for 2021! maybe we can squeeze another cruise in for next year.

Breathtaking by menmuir3

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Ovation of the Seas / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

We've always been a cruise lover; however, not so much anymore. There are SO MANY fees/extra expenses that it's better to go to an all-inclusive resort where everything is included. I would definitely go back to Alaska though. It was an amazing trip overall. I also wouldn't go on another cruise with younger children. That was NO fun. The parents come on cruises and let their kids just run free and disrupt every area they are in. If we do another cruise, we will do an adult-only cruise.

7 night Alaska Cruise by 2xrayou

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Ovation of the Seas / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

A perfect cruise. Everything is well worth it. A wonderful experience we will remember and cherish. The ship, the crews, the food, altogether is superb. The prices are quite pricey but it’s all worth it. We stayed one night at Seattle and went around on our own. The city is clean. We went to the space Needle and to the Pike place Market. We saw the original Starbucks. The following morning we boarded the ship and the great adventure started. Everything in the ship is excellent. The crews are courteous and very professional. They are all very approachable and will really attend to your needs. The dog Sledding with Helicopter ride is the real highlight for our cruise. I really recommend that everyone should have the chance to experience this!

Trip of a Lifetime! by JWinger82

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Ovation of the Seas / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Alaska was unlike any other place I've visited before. Cruising on the ovation of the seas really made it an enjoyable way to see this part of the country and the gorgeous scenery and wildlife that are native to this area. We planned this trip over a year and a half ago, and we are so happy that we made it happen. Booking through was really helpful in being able to pay it off gradually. Would not hesitate to book another cruise through royal Caribbean or through again.

Worst cruise of my life. by juliecoffell

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Ovation of the Seas / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

6/14/19 3:00 we arrived at the terminal to board the ship which was still at the dock. The ground attendant who called the ship was told were not allowed onto the ship because we were too late. She said that we could catch the ship in Juneau. So we went back to the airport, bought two tickets to Juno. Were we spent two nights waiting for the ship to dock. 6/15/19 Receive a texted from my credit card company stating that there was over $485.00 being charged to our card. This was denied. We were not even on the ship. 6/16/19 Finally got onto the ship. Went up to a room that we had not chosen. The room keys were in someone else’s name. We went to guest services to get the correct keys. Went back up to our room with the keys with our name on them. They did not work. Back down to guest services. We were told the keys would work after 4:00. After 4:00 we tried to get into our room. The keys still didn’t work. Back down to guest services. We received a bracelet to unlock the door and a card to operate the electricity in the room. This took hours and 4 to 5 people to figure out. Exhausting day. 6/17/19 Enjoyed seeing the glacier and coastline. Went to the movies. The sound was so loud it hurt our ears (other people too) and the 3d glasses were filthy. The buffet was mediocre and not big enough to handle all the people on the ship. 6/18/19 Enjoyed the show. Went to my time dining for dinner which was good. 6/19/19 Docked in Victoria. Before we went on a tour we paid our bill. The room steward said good bye because we were leaving the ship. We told him no we are just going on a tour. Went we got back from the tour we went to get back on board but were blocked. We asked why and were told because we boarded the ship in Juneau we could not go back to Seattle due to a Jones Act. If we did it would cost us a fine of over $800.00 each. So we packed up our belonging and went to the ferry station to catch the ferry to St Angels. Then took a cab to the ferry to get to Seattle. Took another taxi to the airport and had to pay extra to change our flight to Florida. 6/20/19 Finally got back home. The mental stress of chasing the boat and humiliation being stopped and not allowed back on the boat was terrible. The ship was more of a cattle boat than a cruise ship. Very disappointing.
