The waiter, sensing that our patience was wearing thin, dropped a bowl of hot chips (fries) and a bottle of tomato sauce at our table.
“Chef’s compliments”, he said, “ dinner is going to be a bit late”.
Our veranda suite 726, portside category V5 on deck 7 is ideally located with same-level access to ‘Seabourn Square’, Ovation’s highly commended version of the traditional atrium lobby and heart of the ship -- boutique shops, coffee and snacks, lounges, computers and concierge service desks in a friendly circular layout. The suite itself has a 3rd guest capacity (a large lounge) and includes a walk-in closet with full-length mirror, a well-lit mirrored bathroom with a spacious bath and separate shower and double vanities, a full-length window and glass door to a private veranda, queen-size bed or two twin beds, dining table for two, interactive flat-screen TV, fully stocked bar and refrigerator. Drawer space throughout was more than enough for two over-packed guests. All immaculate and well serviced by our obliging room steward Clarissa.
