Immediately upon tying up at Sydney’s Overseas Passenger Terminal, Ovation of the Seas will bring Australia will officially enter the world of “Supercruising” if Royal Caribbean is to be believed. It’s difficult to argue that claim.

Australian cruise travellers have never before seen a ship like it in local waters – much less for an extended period of time. It has been well documented what exactly will be housed onboard the nearly 5,000-passenger giant, but there will still be more for guests to discover for themselves once they arrive.

For all the hype and build-up which has been focused on attractions such as the North Star, RipCord by iFly, the SeaPlex, Bionic Bar and much more, it is also worth paying some attention to another fairly critical element of the cruise experience – the staterooms. With so much going on elsewhere on the ship, sometimes people forget there are still thousands of comfortable staterooms and suites surrounding all of this fun, to which passengers will retreat at the end of each day. Here we will take a look through each major category.
