I will consider this an... by Roworth

Sail Date: /

I will consider this an interim review because of the following reasons. 1st very large crew turnover due to USA rules preventing regular crew from working in the US. 2nd. The new hotel manager only been onboard 6 weeks. We have sailed on his ships before and he will make big changes on here. Boarding. Quick and easy, but get onboard and no music, no band, and no sail away party. NO ENRGY and a big let down. Excuse used was Sydney noise restrictions. Ship. Squeaky clean. Cleaner then most hospitals I have seek. Love the adults area up front. Main pool was very good but it had to be closed several times due to guests fouling it. Had a number of code Brown's and 1 case of a drunk fool using it as a barf bucket. Felt sorry for the crew. Dining room layout sucked. Without the MDR there was no polish. No.feeling of AWE. STUDIO270. NICE venue but way to crowded and not enough seats. Kids club. No idea, we left the tribe at home. Over all ship had no energy and no life. Almost as bad as a river cruise full of old people who go to bed by 7.30pm. Food. Not up to RCCL standard. 2 many repeat items every day and food didn't stand out like their other ships. Entertainment. Not good. No big show. Lineup of second rate performers with 1 exception. Piano player in the Scooner Bar was great. Go Paul. Room. Our room attendant was well and truly up to RCCL standard. He was great. We are booked back onboard in April next year, but if we had not already booked I would have looked at other options. Right now we can't wait for Voyager n November. RCCL has a lot of work to do to get this ship up to their usual standard. My advise. Pick one of RCCLs other ship classes, unless you are an accountant with no personality and like this type of holiday.

Had a great time. Ship was full so yes there were a lot of people about. Had to arrive early for shows/ events to ensure a seat but managed most times. Food was ok but not special. Staff amazing.

Totally enjoyable by CrusinStalker

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

This was our first cruise, simply loved it all of it. Staff were great and from all over the world. We enjoyed talking to the crew to learn a bit about their part of the world. The ship tour was well worth the time

Sail Date: /

The Ovation Of The Seas is a really amazing Cruise Ship. There is so much to do and the food is great quality! On the boat there is a special Suite only restaurant and deck area that are quite good. Overall this is an amazing cruise!

Wonderful Cruise by CLOTAR

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

We were overwhelmed by our first cruise from the moment we stepped on the ship and didn’t want to disembark at all.

Perfection! by Sherryn74

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Large Group

We had a group of 10 taking 4 rooms. 2 adults, 3 young men aged 18, 3 girls of 17yrs, a 12yr old boy and a 7yr old boy. We all had a fantastic time. We were all first time cruisers and cannot wait to do our next one!

This was our second cruise... by queenofhearts

Sail Date: /

This was our second cruise on the Ovation. We had upgraded to the Grand suite and definitely worth it with all the inclusions of specialty restaurants, butler, vip dining etc and the room was amazing and spacious. Great storage for us both and the view of the sounds as we sat on the balcony was wonderful. Your room receives a daily planner of activities and I wish they would update over the speakers throughout the day as a reminder as there is so many things on and spread out across the ship I found it difficult sometimes to plan properly. The food in the coastal kitchen and solarium was outstanding and recommend booking the Chefs table early as it sells out quickly. With 5 courses matched with wines including the chef who explains all about each dish and why the wine was chosen is a great experience. The only con is the constant up selling from staff, but say no once they tend to leave you alone.

Sail Date: /

Fantastic family Cruise- we celebrated an 80th birthday. The itinerary was brilliant as was the ship. Embarking and disembarking was a very smooth process. Onboard activities kept us busy. The entertainment first class. The variety of eateries good. Our dining experiences were varied.

Fantastic first time cruise .... by MegR78

Sail Date: /

Fantastic first time cruise . Loved it. Everything was great , food, customer service, entertainment. We ate dinner at Silk restaurant which was great, our waiter Matana was very friendly and provided great customer service. Entertainment - ACDC tribute and Freddie Mercury tribute as well as the other shows were fantastic. North Star and Ifly were fun, must do. Booked our next cruise while still on board.

Fantastic cruise by M51

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Great ship. Disappointed we only went to 2 ports. There were 4 advertised when we booked. Apparently 6 originally. A lot of kids on board. Adult only areas was not policed. On the whole kids were well behaved. Adults in one family were feral, consequently so were the kids. However still had great time. Plenty to do, never bored. Just overall good experience.

Good cruise around the pacific by SMetcalf

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Lovely cruise, the ship was great, we realised that we prefer smaller ships. Having said this, I would cruise on the Ovation of the sea again, but she is not my first choice.
