We are absolutely thrilled to call the Ovation of the Seas home to guests on board Rock the Boat and Cruisin’ Country 2021. There is so much to see and do on this incredible ship – it will be half the fun of the cruise exploring the amenities and venues just as much as all of the performances on board!

The Ovation of the Seas has some incredible amenities on board that we have never seen before on our cruises. Hang ten on FlowRider, suit up for ahh-some thrills on the iFLY sky diving simulator and experience the North Star® for revealing 360-degree views. You’re going to want to bring your game face.


If you’re craving high-end eats, Ovation of the Seas hits all the high notes. Dining that takes you from the Far East at Izumi, down the rabbit hole at Wonderland Imaginative Cuisine. There are a whopping 20 eateries on board, including Jamie’s Italian, Amber & Oak Pub and American Icon Grill which are sure to be new crowd favourites.


Redefining the cruising experience one room at a time. Our staterooms are an alluring escape from the non-stop action that our cruise ships are known for. There is an incredible array of cabin choices on board Ovation of the Seas. With over 1,500 balcony/suites and a new feature of virtual balconies in select interior staterooms, there is a room for everyone’s taste and budget.



Most importantly, there are state of the art music venues on board Ovation of the Seas which will take the music aspect of our cruises to a whole new level! With Transformative and interactive venues such as TWO70, Seaplex and Music Hall, each performance will sound better than the next.
