Ovation of the Seas
A round of applause for the latest innovation in Alaska cruising: A mega ship with entertainment galore.
Ovation of the Seas Overview
The Ovation of the Seas is the largest cruise ship sailing Alaska's waters. The ship is rich in high-tech features, such as the exciting 14-passenger sky pod fittingly called "North Star" and the RipCord by iFly skydiving simulator. That ultra-modern feel extends to innovative eateries like Wonderland and a fully automated Bionic Bar manned by robot bartenders. Every stateroom has a view aboard the Ovation thanks to virtual balconies that broadcast a live feed of the view outside. The Ovation of the Seas provides a high-energy cruise experience fitting for families and couples seeking extensive onboard entertainment aboard a "floating resort."
The Ovation of the Seas departs from Seattle on seven-day roundtrip cruises that include port calls in Juneau, Skagway, and Victoria, BC. The route is highlighted by a cruise through Endicott Arm, a 30-mile fjord filled with glacial ice, harbor seals, and other wildlife.
