There are few things that excite the cruise community as much as the launch of a brand new ship – and Royal Caribbean’s Ovation of the Seas® is no exception.
As part of the Quantum Class of ships ,which includes Quantum of the Seas® and Anthem of the Seas®, it is home to some incredible technology and amazing service -including a couple of world firsts of its own. Join us as we take a look at what you can enjoy on a Quantum Class cruise ship.
RipCord by iFlySM
If you want to get your adrenaline pumping there’s no better pastime than skydiving, and Quantum Class ships – including the brand-new Ovation of the Seas – allow you to do just that.
Of course we don’t mean that you’ll be dropped over the ocean, but you can get a feel for the experience in the indoor wind tunnel – RipCord by iFlySM. After a tutorial with an instructor, you can go freestyle, while the instructor makes sure you don’t get too carried away.
It’s an exhilarating introduction to skydiving and you might find that you go home with a brand new hobby.
If the thought of diamonds gets your pulse racing faster than the thought of jumping out of a plane, then Ovation of the Seas’ Royal Esplanade has lots for you to explore.
As well as Kate Spade and Michael Kors outlets, you’ll also find the first ever Cartier boutique on the high seas. With sunglasses, watches, rings and necklaces – as well as the expert customer service you’d expect from Cartier – we can’t blame you if you give in to temptation.
If luxury is what you’re after, then let us introduce you to the Royal Genies. This exclusive service is dedicated to guests staying in Royal Suite Star Class accommodation – making sure that their every need is met.
Trained by the British Butler Institute, the team are personal concierges who will make your stay as comfortable as possible. From guided tours of the ship and event planning to one-of-a-kind experiences, there’s nothing they won’t do to make your trip memorable.
To help tailor your trip, you’ll be presented with a survey prior to your embarkation date, so your Genie can find out more about you and what you like. It’s the only way to travel if you’re looking for the high life.
The Bionic Bar
Technological innovation figures heavily on all Quantum ships and Makr Shakr The Bionic Bar is a must-visit. Two specially programmed robotic bartenders will take your order from the iPads around the venue, before expertly mixing your favourite cocktail. Either choose a drink from the extensive menu or invent your own from the many spirits and mixers on offer.
While you wait, watch the screens at either side of the bar to find out where you are in the queue, what everyone else is having and the most popular drinks onboard. It’s both fun and educational.
If you’re staying in an interior stateroom, you needn’t miss out on a good view. That’s because there are inside rooms with virtual balconies, giving you a view of what’s going on outside.
It works using a set of strategically placed cameras around the ship, which capture live footage of your surroundings, before projecting them onto the wall in real time. You can even choose which view you want, from the Port or the Aft side.
