Without a doubt, one of the best things about going on holiday is the chance to indulge in lots of delicious food and drink -and discovering brand new favourites along the way. On Ovation of the Seas℠, the culinary adventure starts as soon as you get onboard, with 18 different dining venues to choose from, including the hugely popular Jamie's Italian - the perfect place for the whole family to explore new flavours.
Jamie Oliver himself remembers food being a huge part of his childhood holidays, with his parents always encouraging him to try new things. 'It's not about what you don't like, it's about what you could like!' he says, which is why at his restaurant, there are plenty of fun ways to get kids to try new foods. Take a look at the fresh pasta being made in-house every day, or order some dishes to share so that everyone can try something different. Kids can even get involved in making their own food with the 'Shake Me' salad, designed especially for them to shake up just the way they like!
Ovation of the Seas reveals the entertainment of the future - a collection of amazing inventions that have never been seen on land or sea. Here, robots dance in unison, and sea views transform to space views in the blink of an eye. Sound is not just heard, but felt head to toe.
Enrichment programs, or 'Explorer Academy' classes cover a wide range of topics, from wine tasting to casino tuition.
The ship features a fantastic array of health and fitness facilities including, a spa, a fitness centre, a rock climbing wall and much more.
On all our ships, it is customary to offer tips to staff members for their good service and personal attention. You can pre-pay your service charge as part of your booking and this will be shared among Dining Services Staff, Stateroom Attendants and Other Housekeeping Services Personnel. If you have opted not to pre-pay your Service Charge before your cruise, for your convenience we will automatically add a $14.50 per guest per day service charge to each guest's SeaPass account on a daily basis. For guests in a Grand Suite or above, the amount is $17.50.
An 18% service charge is also automatically added to beverages and beverage packages, mini-bar items, spa & salon purchases as well as specialty dining products, including packages, classes and brunches.
Many of our guests choose to reward exceptional service during their cruise by providing additional gratuities. You may do so by providing an additional gratuity to your SeaPass onboard account or a cash gratuity at your discretion.
There's plenty to keep the little ones happy from the moment you step onboard Ovation of the Seas. You'll find an unprecedented selection of activities, sports, games and shows catering for every age group and interest. The real challenge will be working out how to fit it all in!
