Lovely ship by margmex

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Lovely ship but first two days disorganized in dining room. Much better as the cruise progressed. Very disappointed in the fact that some ports were missed /cut short, better planning needed on the part of RC itinerary staff. Overall enjoyed the cruise and service very good.

Great ship, lousy itinerary by dalltucker

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

A beautiful and well designed ship. Communication on board was poor. Once that you learned the layout, it became easier.

RC Ovation Hawaii to Vancouver Cruise by sengle959

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Overall we had a good time. Could have been a great trip if not for the itinerary changes and tendering problems. The weather from Hawaii to Victoria was not the greatest, causing everyone to stay inside for most of the 5 sea days.

All That Glitters by rstevenson10

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

A beautiful ship, and a good choice for families, but there are much better cruise choices for couples. Plus, for this number of passengers, there's really not enough space for everything they've built on the ship.

Love Cruising with the Aussies as an American. Great cruise, Great Boat, Great crew and Great value. by sawvet

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

From an experienced cruiser this cruise was surprisingly good. Quality of the staff was excellent and cruising with the Australians was a blast. Much more friendly and engaging than the American's that we normally cruise with.

The best cruise I've done yet... by gybright

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

This cruise was exactly what I'd hoped for - In spite of not having any luggage for the first 10 days, I had tons of fun. The ports are beautiful, the scenery is beautiful, and the crew is fantastic.

Awesome cruise out of a great city by tlspilot

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

The Ovation is a wonderfully big ship and I was glad to have that stability in the rough Southern Pacific seas. The ride was comfortable and as smooth as could be expected. The food is ever-present and tasty but I also think the quality of the dinner in the main dining rooms has fallen short of some my previous cruises. Still, I’m sure preparing for 5100 guests is a daunting task so I am willing to give them a break. In Tasmania I booked a lengthy excursion to Mount Field National Park and the Bonorang Wildlife Sanctuary through AA.vacations and couldn’t have been more pleased. A young man named Luke was very accommodating and offered excellent commentary throughout. Our embarkation back in Sydney was a bit unorganized and chaotic but we finally left the ship and set out to enjoy the city. We stayed 5 more days in Sydney and loved every minute.

New Zealand was beautiful. Didn’t get to go to a scheduled scenery due to rough seas so we were at sea 3 days before first port. by jaaron1102

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The ship was beautiful . Staff was very nice and helpful. Limited shops not enough. Activities boring and few.

Not the best experience for non-chinese people by drladyj

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

The large majority of the non-Asain cruisers were extremely displeased with the rude behavior of the chinese cruisers (who were 90+% of the cruisers on the ship). The staff of the cruise explained that the behavior of the Chinese was due to their culture. The staff kept us 100% separated from the Chinese cruisers in the restaurants: the Chinese sat in the front and middle of the restaurants, non-chinese in the back. However, the staff were extremely nice.

Trip for China by johnnywilliams

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

This cruise is very catered to the Asian population. If your comfortable with that, then enjoy. The food, entertainment, ports of call can be a challenge with out excursions.

Disappointed Ovation of the Sea by Jmw88

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I would not sail on Ovation of the Sea again because the quality of food is bad, too many sea days and the ports are mostly boring, undeveloped and uninteresting cities. Worse of all the local excursions companies did not have much interesting places to take us but sent us to spend a lot of time at low end street vendors to shop. Those are not even place to shop. What a waste of time and money!
