The 600-guest ship is calling PortMiami home from now until March 2022, as it brings passengers from Florida to the Caribbean, the Panama Canal, Mexico and Central America.

This is the ship’s first time in the United States, and Miami “offers an easily accessible port for North American guests and those coming from Europe,” Josbourne Leibowitz, president of Seaborn, said in a press release.

“[Miami] is, after all, the world’s cruise capital, Leibowitz said in Anna Jean Kaiser’s Miami Herald report.

The ship has already started sailing from the sunny peninsula town with its first three 11-day “Gems of the Leeward Islands” routes, which will sail from November to early December.

To target these high-paying customers, Ovation has 300 suites, all of which have verandas, meaning there are none of the windowless interior cabins that are more common on larger cruise ships.

Ovation suites all have somewhere between about 250 to 1,300 square feet of interior space.

Do you feel hungry at sea? The cruise ship is also lined with five restaurants, including a sushi eatery and The Grill by famed chef Thomas Keller.

Like many cruise ships, the Ovation also has pools, hot tubs, a casino, a spa and an adults-only lounge to help kill time during days out at sea.

All of Seabourne’s ships have a “Seabourn Square” lounge, and the Ovation is no different. This has books, iPads, a coffee shop, gelato and a terrace for outdoor lounging.
