UK rail first
15th April 2016 – This week sees the newest member of the Royal Caribbean International family, Ovation of the Seas, set sail from Southampton on the first of three European sailings before embarking on her 52-day Global Odyssey on 3rd May.
The ship spans 18 decks, can carry 4,180 guests at double occupancy and was built with the most advanced technology. Features include:
- the North Star observation capsule that gently rises more than 300 feet in the air to treat guests to breath-taking panoramic views; thrilling skydiving and surfing experiences;
- Two70, a daily social space which transforms into a multifunctional entertainment place in the evening; and
- SeaPlex, the largest indoor activity space at sea which includes activities such as basketball, roller-skating and bumper cars.
What’s more, Ovation of the Seas is also the first of Royal Caribbean International’s fleet to offer Royal Suite Class which takes luxury to a whole new level.
Red Consultancy co-ordinated the PR launch starting with dockside interviews with Royal Caribbean executives and filming with local print and broadcast media as the ship arrived into port. The team then helped host 30 UK and Irish travel and cruise media as they enjoyed an overnight stay to sample the ship’s amazing on-board facilities and experiences first-hand.
