Royal Caribbean has a new ship in town- and no, it's not your typical run-of-the-mill retirement cruise.
The Ovation of the Seas is part of Royal Caribbean's Quantum fleet of ship that were launched in 2014. The 136-feet wide- cruise set sail on its maiden voyage on April 17, 2016 from Southampton, UK and is now in Asia, at the tail-end of its 52-night global odyssey. The cruise is set to return to its home port in Tianjin in China, later this month.
Cruise operators have long trumpeted the facilities on board to lure travelers so what's the draw here? Technology.
