Ovation of the Seas

MS Ovation of the Seas is a cruise ship operating for Royal Caribbean International (RCI). The vessel is the third ship in the Quantum class, which surpasses RCI’s earlier Freedom-class ships by over 14,000 GT, becoming the second largest class of passenger ships behind RCI’s Oasis class ships on a gross tonnage basis.

She entered service in April 2016 and like her sister ships, has family friendly programmes. Ovation features many first-at-sea innovations including RipCord by iFly, a skydiving simulator and North Star, a jewel-shaped glass capsule that rises 300 feet above sea level, providing 360-degree views from high above the ship.

Ovation of the Seas has been specially built with the Chinese cruise market in mind and will feature a number of new features compared to its sisters, including more Chinese food outlets, a large casino and more high-end shops. Ovation will spend most of its time in China, with a short season sailing from Australia.

Royal Caribbean International allows guests to bring two 750ml bottles of wine per cabin on boarding day only. The wine can be consumed in guest rooms without charge or charged a $25 corkage fee when consumed in a public space. If more than two bottles are brought onboard, the additional bottles will be secured by ship personnel and returned just prior to the end of the cruise. Wine brought onboard on other days will be collected and returned on the final evening of the cruise.
