Royal Caribbean to position brand new cruise ship in Australia
Royal Caribbean International has just announced that its Ovation of the Seas will operate in Australian waters after it launches in late 2016.
A sister ship to the groundbreaking Quantum of the Seas and the just-delivered Anthem of the Seas, Ovation will be the largest cruise ship to ever sail out of Australia, as well as being the most technologically advanced vessel in the region.
Carrying around 5,000 passengers and 1,500 crew, the Ovation of the Seas will “completely redefine the idea of cruising in Australia,” said Gavin Smith, Royal Caribbean regional vice president Asia-Pacific.
Smith said the deployment would take the industry to the next level by offering a host of incredible never-before-seen features and technologies.
“This demonstrates our belief in, and long term commitment to, the Australian cruising market,” he said.
