The ship will be fitted with Two70, the venue that debuted on Ovation’s sister ships, which includes six robotic screens in ultra high definition, a 100ft wide surface and 18 projectors. The venue will host Spectra’s Cabaret, an original production created for the cruise line, that is currently on board Anthem of the Seas.
The ship’s 1,300-seat main theatre will be headlined by a production called The Dream. According to a release by the company, it will chronicle the “story of a man who is visited by his departed soulmate in a very special dream”. The main theatre will also host a dance show called Live. Love. Legs, which includes aerial acrobatics from the company that created the Quantum of the Seas show Sequins and Feathers.
In Music Hall, passengers will be able to listen to live music as well as themed parties such as Groovy Town. Two70 also hosts late-night themed parties such as Twist & Shout and Fireworks Party along with the Roboshows.
For children there will be entertainment in partnership with DreamWorks, including meet and greet opportunities.
Ovation of the Seas will officially launch in April 2016 with an inaugural sailing, a three night cruise departing Southampton on April 14, 2016 on a roundtrip to the Netherlands. The ship will depart to its new homeport in China later that month on a 52-day Global Odyssey cruise.
