Ovation of the Seas Reviews
Alison Searle travelled in December, 2019 and left the following review:
An absolutely amazing vessel with amazing staff. So much to do and so much was included in our fair. We never ran out of things to do. You can do as much and as little as you like. The option to pay all your excursions and extra entertainment, dinning and drinks packages up front. Is absolutely amazing we had no nasty surprises at the end of our trip. It was an awesome feeling boarding the vessel knowing everything was paid for and we won’t going to miss out on the excursions we wanted to go on. Food is fabulous you do t even need a dinning package as the variety and quality is so good.
Elizabeth tomlin travelled in February, 2019 and left the following review:
The ship, the entertainment, the food, the staff, everything was 100%. But after 5 days - passengers started to fall ill. 72% of our group returned home with influenza A. A reportable illness. Personally, eleven days after I went down I’m still not better. Not sure wether this is to do with hygiene, air conditioning, or other source...... but our collective holidays were ruined. What a waste of time and money.
thi nguyen travelled in March, 2018 and left the following review:
Beautiful ship, excellent shows and activities. Royal Esplanade is small though not big enough when a lot of people gather. Gym room is also small specially space for stretching, yoga is way too narrow other than that the ship is terrific , we would strongly reccomment to relatives and friends as we have always do.
