Great cruise   0 , Australia, Jan 2024
This was a great cruise from start to finish. The booking process was easy. The port stops were great. The ship had a lot to do on board. The food was pretty good. Just the coffee on board could have been better.
First time cruise exceed expectations   1 , New Zealand, Jul 2023
This was my first cruise and it exceed my expectations. The facilities were top tier! I really enjoyed coming back to my stateroom which was great even without a balcony after a long day to relax. Royal Caribbean really know how to wow their consumers! Although I really enjoyed the cruise I most likely won’t go on a cruise peak season again as it felt ...read more really overwhelming with so many people and the weather was really hot. In saying this, I would definitely go on another cruise and would definitely book through Global Journeys. Tracey made my experience very easy and answered all my questions timely. The whole process was great!
Beautiful New Zealand Cruise     2 , NSW, Australia, Apr 2023
Lovely cruise on Ovation of the Seas. The ship was very impressive. Especially suited for families with teenage children and young adults with lots of activities on board. Perhaps not so much for the older age group. New Zealand has some stunning scenery although I was on the last cruise for the season and we missed two ports because of inclement weather. ...read more Thanks to Georgie from Global Journeys for always handling my bookings so efficiently, everything went very smoothly.
Thanks   4 , VIC, Australia, Mar 2023
We had a great time on our Royal Caribbean holiday. We booked it all through Georgie who was very helpful and would highly recommend her.
Weekend getaway from Sydney   2 , NSW, Australia, Jan 2023
With Christmas such a busy and hectic time, we took the opportunity to book a weekend getaway cruise on Royal Caribbean's Ovation of the Seas. Only being a 2 night cruise, we splurged out on a 1 bedroom Grand Suite, and it didn’t disappoint. Essentially a double size cabin, bedroom in one side and lounge in the other with access to a fully tiled bathroom ...read more from each room. Other perks of the Grand Suite was access to the Coastal Kitchen restaurant. Whilst the quality and quantity of the food on Royal Caribbean in general is better than other lines we have cruised with, the Coastal Kitchen really is that extra step up. Top quality food, impeccable service and a more intimate environment for dinner was a good way to cap off the day.

Suite class also has 24 hr access to the Concierge Club lounge, with complimentary coffee all day, afternoon hors d'oeuvres and open bar from 5pm - 8pm. Add to that a private sundeck and you have several options to get away from the 4,500 plus passengers on board. (if that’s what you want). Suites are not cheap, and up to the individual to determine if it is worth it for them, but we enjoyed our short stay at that level. We have also found that Royal Caribbean’s boarding process, in Sydney at least, is second to none. With so much being able to be done online prior to boarding, you virtually just walk on, via security of course and ID checks. We’ll cruise with Royal Caribbean and book via Global Journeys again.
