Specialty 

chops,Jamie’s,izumi,wonderland and a cafe by the pool..

 free

windjammers,the solarium (has some up change) cafe 270 ,cafe promenade.

Doesnt have a main dining room but has 4 restaurants,grand,chic,silk and American icon which has someup charge and serves the same food as the buffet Windjammer.

If you have a suite there’s coastal kitchen.

For specialty coffee there’s a coffee shop in the promenade and also cafe 270 a up change

It was Kung Fu Panda Noodle House, then changed to Poolside dining which was fish and chips for the Aussie cruisers.  RC says no comment on Johnny Rockets coming but Johnny Rockets news release a few months ago says look for a new Johnny Rockets coming to Ovation for Alaska Sailings.  We have her booked for the 2020 transpacific and would prefer a big ole burger to a plate of noodles.

She left Hawaii with Poolside Dining so unlikely she'll get JR on the cruise to Vancouver.

Ovation goes to Singapore after the 2020 Aussie season and I believe it will be due for a dry dock.

My guess is it will get a spruce up ,put in a Johnny Rocket and head back to America.

That Kung fu noodles was a total disaster and the pool side dining isn’t much better. Hardly ever saw anyone in it.

Ovation is royal’s second biggest moneymaker next to Harmony. And they’ll want to make more $$$$.

That was today on Ovation. 

 

The only obvious renovations on the ship were in Sundials (next to Music Hall) which had its grand opening today as the new RCI logo shop and Prince&Greene (across from Music Hall - closed till 5/10).

We were on Ovation in Sydney (to New Zealand) for 10 days in December, and rest assured...she is a beautiful ship.

 

That said, we certainly noticed a very low "attendance" in nearly all the specialty restaurants. The WINDJAMMER, TWO70 CAFÉ, SORRENTO’S,  and CAFÉ PROMENADE had many more people eating in those locations.

 

Izumi was empty during regular hours on numerous occasions, and Wonderland reservations were "wide open", as it also had very few people in it during the 4-5 times we checked. 

 

This was Wonderland in the middle of their "open" time...

We have the Ultimate (or is it Unlimited) Dining Plan for our Ovation Alaskan cruise this September. 

 

1. Don’t you think there’ll be more eating in the specialty restaurants while in North America?

 

2. Can you use the UDP for the Poolside Restaurant during lunch on sea days?

Its next to the entrance- where there is normally a line. Not once on our 10 day cruise.

I’m still going to make reservations for Wonderland once we board the ship. Sounds perfect for the night we are going to Pixels (second night). 

 

Would you eat there more than once?  I’m thinking two nights at Chops, two nights at Jamie’s and a night at Izumi and Wonderland.
