One of our team members had never been on a cruise ship before and we had to get it fixed!
Last month, Royal Caribbean kindly invited our team to visit one of their ships before departing to Alaska. We took the opportunity to show you what it is like inside the Royal Caribbean Ovation of the Seas (pictures & video included). Here’s what Barbara has to say:
My first experience on a cruise could not have been better. Thanks to Royal Caribbean and the Ovation of the Seas staff, I am able to tell you more about what that ship looks like and inspire you to go and explore it yourself.
I had no idea what I would see or the countless activities available on the ship, so trust me when I say WOW!
With the ability to accommodate more than 4,180 passengers, the ship offers many room categories including suites, balcony, ocean view, interior staterooms, studios, and accessible rooms. Interior rooms are equipped with a virtual balcony to bring a live ocean view on a full-definition 80-inch screen and can be connected to larger staterooms depending on availability at time of booking.
There’s no shortage of activities for the entire family onboard. The ship is very family-oriented, filled with modern amenities, and offers a range of entertainment options to keep everyone in your traveling party happy:
the main outdoor pool includes a movie screen
an indoor pool with retractable roof,
and the adults-only (16y.o. and older) Solarium under cover at the front of the ship
Rock climbing wall
RipCord by iFLY wind tunnel
North Star observation pod
FlowRider surfing simulator
For families traveling with babies and young children, the Ovation of the Seas is equipped with a nursery (0 – 2 y.o.), Adventure Ocean (3 – 11 y.o. with distinct programs for different age groups), and Splashaway Bay aqua park.
And if you’re worried about what’s for dinner (or breakfast, lunch, snacks…), the ship offers 16 dining options, including Jamie’s Italian by Jamie Oliver, Chops Grille, Izumi (Japanese), Chef’s Table (gourmet), and Windjammer (global, breakfast, lunch, and dinner). If your question is “great, now where’s my beer? (or that delicious umbrella cocktail)” look no further, there are 10 options of bars and lounges to taste them all.
Overall, visiting the ship was an incredible experience not only to see it first-hand and understand how life on a cruise is, but also to show you all the amazing things the Ovation of the Seas has to offer to you and your family.
Now I cannot wait to go on a cruise myself.
