One of the largest ships of Royal Caribbean Cruises is setting sail from Singapore starting next year, allowing guests to go on a holiday across Southeast Asia. 

From October 2025 to March 2026, the action-packed Ovation of the Seas will bring guests to destinations like Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand on 3- to 8-night getaways. 

Some of the featured stops include George Town in Penang, Malaysia; the beaches and night markets of Phuket, Thailand; and the waterfalls and temples of Bali and Lombok in Indonesia.

"Ovation is a ship packed full of adventure, and with the new season's lineup of holidays, friends and families can choose to holiday their way between short getaways to Penang and Phuket, and longer sailings to Indonesia, or with nights out in Phuket," Angie Stephen, senior vice president for international at Royal Caribbean International, said in a statement.

While on board the Ovation of the Seas, guests can enjoy attractions such as the North Star, a 360-degree glass observation capsule with views 300 feet above sea level. 

Also available here are the RipCord by iFly skydiving experience, the FlowRider surf simulator, a rock climbing wall and bumper cars, a full-size sports court, and SeaPlex, dubbed the largest indoor activity complex at sea. 

Holidaymakers can also choose from more than 20 ways to dine, from pizza to sushi and other seafood. Once the sun goes down, they can enjoy live entertainment from aerialists, robots, and more.
