Do not sail on the Ovation. You will be disappointed. You will only get to use the I fly once for less than 2 min if at all for the entire cruise. Same goes for bumper cars and the North Star. These are gimmicks not real attractions. Often they are closed or not working at all.

Food not good. Golden Correl is better. Too many passengers. Activities for younger passengers. Pixel show good. Skipped Saigon port and added a beach port-probably because RC wouldn't pay the port fees, they claim Saigon had no room.

Not worth the money. Don't use free restaurants, only book all specialty restaurant. Stay away from Isumi restaurant. Instead of this big ship, try Anthem of the Sea

My first piece of advice would be to attend the Medical Centre as soon as you board & obtain some sea sickness tablets. This way you can access them immediately if you need them. I suffered terribly after the first night & lost a whole day being sick as it took most of the day to feel well enough to even go to the Medical Centre to get the tablets to take.

There are no irons on board so bring clothes that don't need to be ironed as it is costly to get it done on the ship. You get lots of paperwork everyday so I took some magnets with so we could stick them on the wall of the cabin.
