Win a Cruise on Ovation of the Seas

Only one week left to win a BIG adventure on Ovation of the Seas.

Royal Caribbean is counting down the days until one lucky winner will have the chance to win one of the biggest experiences in cruising: a cruise for two on the newest, biggest and most technologically advanced cruise ship to ever be deployed to Australia Ovation of the Seas.

To be in the running, Royal Caribbean wants to know whats on your “Big List” whether its as adventurous as paragliding or as heartfelt as spending more time with your loved ones. But hurry, entries close on 29 January 2016.

At Royal Caribbean, we believe in living life big, so were counting down the days until our 5,000-guest, US$1 billion megaliner Ovation of the Seas arrives on Australian shores in December 2016, said Adam Armstrong, regional commercial director, Royal Caribbean.

To celebrate the arrival of Australias first ever brand new cruise ship, we want people to think big for their chance to be one of the first to experience this truly incredible megaliner, he concluded.

Currently under construction in Germany, Ovation of the Seas is the third ship in the ground-breaking Quantum Class and likely to tick a few things off anyones Big List. She will introduce a new set of first-at-sea onboard experiences to Australia, including robot bartenders at the Bionic Bar; a heart-pounding skydiving experience, Ripcord by iFLY; North Star, a thrilling adventure that will transport guests as high as the Sydney Harbour Bridge; cutting-edge venues including SeaPlex, the largest indoor sports and entertainment complex at sea with bumper cars, a circus school and more.

Ovation of the Seas has also reimagined cruise ship dining with the introduction of Dynamic Dining where guests can choose from 18 unique restaurant concepts, including Jamie Olivers Jamies Italian, Michaels Genuine Pub, the enchanting Wonderland and Royal Caribbean favourites including Chops Grille steakhouse and Izumi Japanese.

The ship will also feature the unique Quantum Class transformative space, Two70 – an expansive lounge boasting 270 degree ocean views by day which becomes a multimedia entertainment spectacular at night, fusing technology with entertainment using robotic video-screens, dramatic digital projection and high-flying aerialists and performers to thrill and excite guests.

Technology has been amped up on Ovation of the Seas with high speed internet offering more bandwidth than all other cruise ships combined so guests can stream, video call and surf as fast as they would onshore. New radio frequency smart bands also mean you can get into your stateroom and make onboard purchases without the need for the cruise card. While the Royal iQ app makes keeping track of your onboard schedule simple with all bookings and cruise details stored and updated automatically.
