For the most part, it was a good cruise. We had some hiccups, some that could not be avoided, and I do not blame Royal Caribbean for, but others were totally due to poor company management.

Nov 5th, 2019

As I said in the beginning, we had some hiccups along the way, but we did enjoy a lot of things during this cruise, especially the time we shared with the people we met in the American Icon Dining Room. Our biggest issue was the lack of decent evening entertainment during the sea days. We never had that problem on our previous cruises. I expect that Royal Caribbean will receive plenty of comments about this and will do something to improve it. However, as I said in my tip, I recommend that you give a lot of thought to your sea days/port days ratio. We do not gamble, and we do not do spas. You need something to keep yourself occupied during the sea days. I read books at home, but when I am away I want to do things.

Everything was just great. New Zealand is unforgettable. The Ovation of the Seas never feels packed with people although it has 4000 passengers. This cruise convinced us to cruise again

Unorganized and boring

Oct 4th, 2019

Overall, an “ok” cruise. I feel we overpaid for what we got. They did not have lobster on formal night because they ran out on the previous cruise and did not receive-stock. Many food venues closed early. Entertainment was sub par.

Worth it, but irritating at times.

Oct 4th, 2019

All in all, we enjoyed the cruise. We do not recommend our actual room, 10232 due to noise they can't fix, but did like the room structure. If your child is under 42 inches, I would recommend another cruise as there isn't a lot for them to do on the boat and there are many days at sea. Do not book private excursions on Maui nor Kona as you tender and cannot control what time you arrive!
