Earlier this month, Royal Caribbean’s third Quantum-class vessel arrived into British shores for a series of short cruises prior to transferring to Asia and later Australia. Ovation of the Seas is every bit as impressive as her sister ships, Anthem of the Seas and Quantum of the Seas, but with a few noticeable tweaks to make her more adaptable to an Asian market.
As well as English, much of the signage throughout the ship is also displayed in Chinese and there are many connecting staterooms on board, which accommodate multi-generational families. Other noticeable differences include a change in décor, the introduction of a Kung Fu Panda Noodle and Dim Sum restaurant, and a larger casino – all of which will accumulatively appeal to the Asian market.
Many of the features that have played a helping hand in making the Quantum-class distinctive, exciting and innovative also feature onboard Ovation of the Seas. Passengers will be able to: ride bumper cars in SeaPlex, skydive above the ship with RipCord by iFly, surf the waves with FlowRider, witness robotic arms swing frantically to make a range of cocktails, watch spectacular shows in Two70, and ascend to a height of 92 metres above the ship in the North Star.
Did you know that, at its total length, the North Star is twice as tall as Beijing’s iconic Temple of Heaven? That’s just one of the many statistics that feature on Royal Caribbean’s colourful info-graphic, which features below.
Many people may be put off cruising on board Ovation of the Seas due to the high number of passengers and a lack of space. At maximum capacity, a total of 4,905 guests can cruise on board this vessel at any one time.
In order for Royal Caribbean to provide an accurate account of how much space there actually is on board, they have gone to the trouble of establishing how much fruit can be crammed onto the ship. Thus, the cruise line has reassured consumers by confirming that a total of 56 billion lychees can be crammed onto the vessel, which weighs in at 168,666 GRT.
At full capacity, that works out at approximately 11,416,922 lychees per person on board. Considering the average lychee fruit measures 5cm long and 4cm wide, this equates to a considerable amount of space for each passenger. And with so much to see and do on board, your customers will never struggle to find somewhere they can call a place of their own during a cruise on board Ovation of the Seas.
But don’t think too much about the numbers. This ship along with the third Oasis-class vessel, Harmony of the Seas, which is set to launch in May 2016, define the meaning of having fun. These ships are perfect for families as they really do offer something for all tastes, age groups, and desires.
