Ovation of the Seas Joins Royal Caribbean’s Fleet

Miami-based cruise line giant Royal Caribbean Cruises took delivery of its 24th ship, Ovation of the Seas, from the German shipbuilder Meyer Werft on April 8.

Ovation of the Seas is the third Quantum-class vessel, after Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas, built at Meyer Werft.

The ship will now sail to Southampton, U.K., where it will offer a series of short getaways before it sets sail on a 52-night Global Odyssey culminating in the arrival to its homeport in Tianjin, China.

The cruise vessel, which was constructed in 18 months, is scheduled to begin its first homeport sailing season in China from Tianjin in June 2016.

Ovation spans 18 decks, encompasses 168,666 gross registered tons, carries 4,180 guests at double occupancy and features 2,091 staterooms.

With the delivery of the new vessel, the Royal Caribbean Cruises owns three Quantum-class ships, while two more are under construction at Meyer Werft.

“It’s wonderful to welcome Ovation of the Seas to the Royal Caribbean family of ships,” said Michael Bayley, President and CEO, Royal Caribbean International.
