Royal Caribbean Post Round-Up: April 17, 2016

17 Apr 2016
Matt Hochberg

It is Sunday and perhaps it is starting warm up, weather-wise, where you are living. The Royal Caribbean news this week heated up, and we have it all summarized for you here, in case you missed any of it.

Royal Caribbean's 24th ship, Ovation of the Seas, formally joined the fleet this week and started sailing from Southampton, England.

Royal Caribbean took delivery of this new ship in a ceremony held in Bremerhaven, Germany and then sent the ship over the English Channel to Southampton.

Ovation's arrival in Southampton coincided with even more Ovation of the Seas news, as Royal Caribbean revealed who her Godmother would be, as well as the larger-than-life art that would be added onboard.
