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.

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.

If you get a loft suite, get one on the corner, three balconies instead of one so you can see the side views and the back view.

Smokers although catered for in the 2 smoking areas, both are in the back and no consideration for anyone at the front of the ship. Twice I left the music hall for a smoke, went up 2 decks, walked about 1/2 km and twice on returning, both my seat and drink were gone. When suggested to management an area at the front you could see your words were just passing over. TV in rooms a total waste of time, same 3 programs repeating over and over for 9 nights.

Great if you have kids, but don't expect excellent entertainment. Lunch dining time ends at 1:00 PM, which is extremely early, especially since we got back from Seoul around 10:00 PM the previous night.

Book early before you board the ship for the North Star, iFly and extra shows that they put on like Pixels, but if you miss out they usually have a standby line so if people don't show up they fill from the standby line.

The free restaurants and buffet restaurant Windjammer are good place to have your meals, but if you want to try the speciality Restaurants, my suggestion is don't try Wonderland, it is not worth; Chop and Grill is average; Jamie's good to try.

Make sure you book every meal and every show and every activity. Don't bother paying for "my time dining" as we had to queue for the meals. Wash your hands every time you go to eat and every time you go back to your cabin.

Don't pack a power board, all luggage is x-rayed and our power board held up the luggage delivery to our cabin. Power boards, travel irons, coffee pod machines etc will be confiscated and returned to you on departure. There are usb ports in the cabin for iphones and ipads etc.
