  3. Ovation of the Seas
My wife and I picked the Ovation of the Seas for these reasons: 1. Reputation: Despite of some negative comments by others, we have NEVER had a bad experience with any of our RCCL cruises. We are at Emerald Level and just enjoy the cruises. (Comparing RCCL to other super expensive luxury cruises is really not fair in my opinion, as I have seen other reviews do.) 2. The Service: Oh my we had such a wonderful stateroom attendant and servers in the Main Dining, Grande Restaurant. The entire staff is wonderful. 3. The Food: Food in the Windjammer or Main Dining areas of Grande was just right for us. Fine dining all the way or quick buffet meal at the Windjammer. 4.Spacious well set up balcony cabin. My wife and I especially liked our view out the balcony and the fact that we enough storage. We liked the armoires around the sofa. 5. Clean Clean Clean: The Ship is always being cleaned. OUR ROOM WAS SPOTLESS and smelled fresh and was cheerful 6. Fun entertainment, plus we had Captain's Club nights with free liquor and entertainment. 7. Large, smooth sailing ship. Sometimes the small ships cant handle the waves, this one can. Bigger the better I say. Sure, small ships may be cozy for short cruises but for being on the open seas we felt safe and comfortable on this ship. 8. We are on this ship for 41 consecutive days. 9. Great affordable price for the cruise. We felt lucky and fortunate to be on this ship.

What a marvelous short cruise to exotic locations
