Matt Hochberg

Royal Caribbean's Ovation of the Seas has left Meyer Werft shipyard in Germany and is headed down the River Ems on her 26-mile conveyance to the North Seas.

The conveyance will be complete when Ovation of the Seas reaches Eemshaven in the Netherlands at approximately 6:00pm on Saturday, March 12, 2016.

Following her arrival in Eemshaven, she will be ready to begin sea trials in the North Sea.

Ovation of the Seas will be officially launched in April 2016, when she departs Southampton for Tianjin, China on a 53-day Global Odyssey. She will begin her first homeport sailing season in China from Tianjin in June 2016. Ovation of the Seas, together with Quantum of the Seas, Mariner of the Seas, Voyager of the Seas and Legend of the Seas, will make up the largest fleet of any cruise line sailing in China.
