  1. It seems the people in the video arrive at a really busy time. It looked like it was raining before they arrived and then cleared up so I infer that everyone just hopped in time around the time the rain stopped. I wonder if they started to turn people away just for crowd control purposes. I am sure that they would let you on if it weren't too massive a line up. It seems 1130 was busy. I will be Ovation out of SYD in October and will let you know....I plan on being there at 10-1030. Hopefully someone else will chime in like Pippa. BTW...I am inferring that you mean Matt and not Mark?
  2. I emailed them for traditional dining and they replied 90 days before my sailing I should email back. I guess it depends on your sailing. It seems that any 2 table top is only 2 inches away from another 2 person table. I guess so they can push them together if they need a 4 top. I am hoping it won't be so crowded during my sitting.
  3. I am just over 100 days out for Ovation and reservations for fly and northstar showed up last week! I booked it up!
  4. Just to be clear, are the windows talked about at chest level of this guy or the one where his legs are? It looks like the windows where the guys legs are can slide open given the panel in the middle. Can anyone that has been on the ship verify if these slide open too?
  5. What app is optimized for Ovation? Is the Royal app good for this ship?
  6. Marvelous photos. I love the whole report that others tend to leave out...i.e. transit in YVR, check in, airplanes (love your pics of the airplane! avgeek here)etc. I just watched a couple of videos on youtube onboard Ovation going under the Lions Gate into YVR and it looked so close...it was cool to see from your perspective. My questions are: On one of the videos I saw of Ovation departing YVR was that there were people on the bow the of the ship where people had said previously there wasn't access. Are they letting people go there now? Also, have you been able to access via deck 13 to on top of the bridge or has it been to crowded? Is it easy to get to? I am going on Ovation when it goes back down to Sydney. They usually have kettles in the room for tea and coffee. Have they taken them out for Alaska? Finally, What are the selections for food like in the Solarium and Windjammer. There aren't any really good pictures or videos on youtube or else where. Cheers and sorry for the many inquiries...I have been on an Alaskan cruise many moons ago and looking forward to seeing the many pictures of Sitka and others to see how they have changed...especially to compare how much some glaciers remain..they were constantly calving when I was there 15 years or so.
  7. We booked this hotel too before our cruise On Ovation in October! Glad to know it is comfortable and close! Hopefully you update soon and everything went well. Is this how long was your cruise? is it around New Zealand? I am guessing 12/13 days since you are posting? Also, is this the group cruise with Pippa? or is that next year
  8. I have heard so many recommendations about independent excursions companies/sites in the Caribbean but not so many elsewhere. Any recommendations for companies in New Zealand at the major stops? We will be on the Ovation 🚢
  9. Whoohoo! Just got another $150 off of my 2019 cruise because of this promotion! Still have my $100 obc! This is my second time calling in during a promotion to apply the offers and so far I have saved $405 since booking! I owe it all to Matt for his podcast and telling me just to put down the deposit and continue to check the sales!
  10. Sailing out of Sydney and our bev package has shown up 400+ days out. We want the regular refreshment package and it is going for 42 cad$/day (32 usd) gratuities included. This is for 12 day cruise. Should i book this now?
  11. Yeah, I just found this out as well. I went to book on Ovation but the room and deck I wanted only had one available. I booked just to secure it then called in and they had the room I wanted. Website wasn't showing it. Happy sailing!
  12. I called and it seems I forgot to add in gratuities . So it wasnt cheaper.
  13. Thanks, good to know. I only have a $100 credit because of the nonrefundable ticket. Nothing else.
  14. I already called in last week or so for the previous sale and saved $256! SO should i call in for New Dive and Discover Sale...should I call for the savings of $95? Is there a risk of always trying to call in and save?
