Ovation of the Seas is the 3rd in company’s Quantum-class and will feature the latest innovations including a host of hi-tech developments, robot bartenders, the RipCord by iFly skydiving simulator and bumper cars.

SeaPlex is the largest at sea indoor sports and entertainment complex with attractions ranging from video gaming and roller skating to a circus school with flying trapeze classes. The signature Northern Star glass capsule rises 300 feet above sea level and provides 360-degree views from high above.

Ovation of the Seas arrived at Berth 101 in Western Docks Monday afternoon (Apr 11). The ship will stay in port for a few days before heading to the Mediterranean, Far East and Australia. The Ovation is commanded by Capt. Henrick Loy.

She is the last of the three 167,800-ton, 4,180-guest Royal Caribbean cruise ships. Constructed at Meyer Werft shipyard (Papenburg, Germany), Ovation is specially built with Chinese cruise market in mind and will spend most of her time in China, with a short season sailing out of Australia.

Royal Caribbean confirmed that Ovation will return Down Under for a 2nd season in summer 2017-2018 due to “extraordinary demand from Australians.”
