Following along...looking forward to your journey!! We'll be on Ovation next May and interested in your thoughts on the ship!

We booked the Ovation next year in May...Hawaii to Vancouver. Looking forward to the review although we were on Anthem a couple years ago so same floor plan. Hoping the service and entertainment are better.

What is the weather like for outside pools on sea days?

Looking at the webcam there is no one in the pools or even sitting poolside so I would say too cold still,. 😯

It's been reported.

 

 

Agreed.

 

As for the review, love the glass art photos you posted earlier. Having done some blown glass in Alaska I can attest that it is hard to do.  The photos you posted show how skilled the artists are. 

 

Bill, I’m looking forward to following along your latest adventures with Marie.  Thanks for taking the time to bring us along.

Thanks, I am glad we had the opportunity to go to the glass museum. Although we live here we had never seen it before. Great experience.

Enjoying your review!

 

Playing tourist in your hometown can be fun - an opportunity to do things you normally wouldn't do.

 

Have a great cruise!  ...and land vacation!

Dinner at Wonderland tonight. We have the unlimited dining package so have been rotating through the restaurants.

I managed to take pictures of all the food but i should have caught the dessert before he poured on the sauce.

Hope you now have a room steward. That was odd you had none on day 1 and the answer you got from guests services.

 

So perhaps a large turnover of crew happened in Vancouver caused this.

 

Who is in the ship now for C director as well as Captain?

 

You photos of Wonderland makes me want to do this next year on Symphony except I will solo .

Marie is feeling under the weather with a cold so not doing much today. Walked through the pool deck and now enjoying time on the balcony

Captain Henrik. Not sure about the CD he only says his first name and not clearly as he is usually yelling. Tall skinny bald head guy. Extra annoying. 😜

@PCWalton1 - playing tourist at home is a great way to experience those special places hidden in plain sight.

 

Hope Marie feels better soon.

 

Curious.....what does Marie's shoe collection look like on this adventure?  😉

 

+1 for your great tie choice!!!

Aw well you got a good captain and a odd cruise director.

We had Henrik on my May 13th cruise but then the c director we had was Chris Brown a nice Aussie.

 

So thanks for replying. I enjoyed your Seattle photos and will go to those places on my next visit. Hope your enjoy your visit in Hawaii after leaving ship to that island.

I was in Hawaii in 1980 and I will go back in 2021 taking two weeks on Pride of America which is NCL.

 

Toodles and do go to Captain corner talk.

 

I hope the ship does not miss any ports on the return crossing. Bye

Finally found the name of the CD. Joff Eaton. Super annoying, like fingernails on a chalk board.

Too bad, he must have changed.  We really enjoyed Joff on Indy.
