Ovation of the Seas Cruises
The third Quantum Class ship, Ovation of the Seas, will join the fleet in spring 2016. She will be very similar to her sisters, Anthem of the Seas and Quantum of the Seas, possessing all of their fantastic venues and technologically advanced features. Along with the robot bartenders in the Bionic Bar, the fastest internet ever experienced at sea and the capability to play Xbox Live against anyone else around the world, you will also receive your own WOWband. These colourful wristbands are a futuristic key to all the exciting facilities on the ship. You use them to order a drink at the Bionic Bar, access your stateroom, purchase items in the shops and much more.
The range of restaurants on board will be familiar to those who have sailed with Royal Caribbean in the past, especially anyone who has set foot on one of the other Quantum Class ships. Chic, The Grande, American Icon Grill and Silk all make re-appearances as the four main complimentary dining options and there are many more besides that you may be familiar with.
Some of the entertainment facilities will have you forgetting that you are actually sailing the ocean. The skydiving simulator, North Star viewing capsule, SeaPlex℠ leisure centre and Two70°℠ theatre need to be seen to be believed and all offer first-at-sea experiences. It is impossible to get bored or run out of things to do on this futuristic floating resort.
The suites and staterooms are also just as well thought out as they are on the sister ships. They are more spacious than those in any of Royal Caribbean’s other ship classes and include a plethora of options that range from Studio Interior Staterooms to the unbelievably swanky Royal Loft Suites. Ovation of the Seas will also feature the new Royal Suite Class experiences, whereby guests receive a host of extra privileges depending on which suite grade they choose.
Ovation of the Seas’ first few cruises will depart from Southampton, before the ship sets sail on a 52-night Global Odyssey to the eventual destination of Tianjin, China. This mammoth sailing can be split into five smaller sections if guests only want to do part of the journey. Once in China, the vessel will operate a number of Far Eastern cruises for the remainder of the summer, before moving on to Sydney in the winter for a selection of Australia and New Zealand cruises.
