Ovation of the Sea calls into Brisbane

While my husband was interstate on business I decided to go and see the forth largest passenger ship in the world, The Ovation of the Sea which arrived in Brisbane early this morning, giving the some 5000 passengers a chance to see our beautiful city. It was due to leave at 5pm tonight. The ship is operated by Royal Caribbean International.

The vessel, which measures 347 metres in length and 168,666 tonnes. It features movie theatres, dodgem cars, a gym, water theme park, rock climbing wall, skating rink and even a simulated sky-diving arena.
The 18 story high mega-ship also boasts a robotic bartender and simulated surf wave. 
Its high-end dining serves about 30,000 meals a day, including 18 restaurants.

As well as the Ovation of the Sea arriving in Brisbane the Arcadia  arrived just after the massive
ship. The Arcadia is part of the P&O cruise fleet. It is 84,000 tonnes and is the fourth largest of eight ships in service for P&O. it is 290 metres in length.
