  3. Ovation of the Seas
Prior to booking our cruise my husband and I had seen Ovation of the Seas at Circular Quay and said "one day we will sail on the Ovation of the Seas". The the next week we had the opportunity to book - just 3 weeks out from sailing! We completed all the paper work including our picture for the cruise card, together with most of the activities that were available on board the ship. Within 1/2 an hour arriving at Circular Quay terminal we were onboard finding our way to the Windjammer. Amazing! Our cabin was a large interior stateroom with virtual balcony and was clean and spacious. There was a kettle, tea and milk which was topped up each day. Our stateroom attendent was kind and hard working. Nothing was too much trouble. The entertainment was excellent. From Long, lovely Legs in the threater to the Rock the Boat rock bank in the Music Hall or 2 seventy. The only annoying part of the cruise was when we were required to queue to book an activity, it was so madding when fellow passengers would insist that time availble was inconvenient to them and they would argue with the crew members. Pure selfishness. The food. The Windjammer as always on Royal Caribbean was impressive, so much food, always found a table. Our dinning experience, the food was OK but this was compensated by our table staff who were outstanding.
