  1. I am only finding sailings for Ovation of the Seas til March 2021. Any news as to what they are doing with this ship?
  2. So was your cruise booked directly thru cruise line or travel agency? I just wondered if it was easier to rebook and get lower price via cruise line directly? Thanks for info.
  3. Was wondering if somebody could tell me what category one would have to book in order to get a long lounge chair on their balcony? I know the junior suites have but I'm looking at more the balcony rooms with the large balconies.
  4. Can anyone answer why Ovation of the Seas is changing some of their cabin categories at various dates.... January 24th, 2020 - April 20th, 2020 May 7th, 2020 - September 17th, 2020 September 27th, 2020 - May 8th, 2021 May 21st, 2021 - September 10th, 2021 When you view different deck plans for the ship you can see that some cabin categories change but their sizes do not. Was just curious if anyone could shed some light.
  5. I am looking at this same itinerary for Sept/Oct 2021 but Royal hasn't released any dates yet. How far in advance was this sailing released?
  6. Looking at doing at Transpacific from Honolulu to Sydney in Sept 2021 but itineraries haven't been posted yet. Looking for feedback on anyone that has done this itinerary before? We have been on the Ovation for a 13 night New Zealand cruise and absolutely loved the ship. I was wondering how fast these sailing typically sold out? I noticed that there are no balconies available for the repositioning next year in April and in Sept and thats why I was wondering how far out a person needs to book. Any feedback greatly appreciated.
  7. We were on the Ovation for 13 nights from Sydney in Feb 2019 and the room was fantastic but the bed was terribly terribly hard, and I prefer a firm mattress. Felt like sleeping on a foam on a board. I asked for a topper and the steward didn't seem to know what I was talking about. My back was very sore but I still loved the ship and would definitely go back on board.
  8. Trying to find repositioning cruise around Sept 27, 2021 from Honolulu to Sydney on Ovation of the Seas but so far no luck. Will continue to wait patiently....
  9. Can anyone tell me if on board account for Mediterranean cruises are usually in US dollars if say booking with Princess or other major cruise lines out of the U.S.?
  10. Thank you so much. I welcome all the knowledge one can get off these boards. We recently came back from Australia and New Zealand and these boards were so helpful! Im sure I will have alot more questions as my planning progresses.
  11. We would want to fly in at least a day before our cruise and try and find a hotel close by the cruise port if possible. How is Oct for weather?
  12. First time trip to Europe and looking at doing a cruise. If you had to pick an embarkation city for your cruise in Europe (specifically looking at Oct 2021 Enchanted Princess 22 day) in Barcelona or Rome, which city would you pick to and why? i.e. Barcelona or Rome
  13. Thank you very much! Answers my question.
  14. Anyone know what happening with the Regal Princess after March 2021? I cannot seem to find any cruises for her anywhere. I would like to know if she will be doing the British Isle Cruise again in April 2021 like she is in April 2020.
  15. For those of you that have booked a guaranteed balcony stateroom on Ovation of the Seas, what was your experience? Were you satisfied with your room? Were you placed more at the front or the rear of the ship? Noisy area? Just looking for feedback. We have always booked a specific room and have never gone with a guaranteed before.
