Passengers on the US$1 billion ship will be able to get wet and wild at the Flowrider with expert advice from a champion.
Bionic bartenders, sky diving and bumper cars have generated plenty of excitement ahead of Ovation of the Seas' arrival Down Under.
But there will be even more thrills and spills onboard for passengers on the December voyage from Fremantle to Sydney for it will be the first-ever Flow With a Pro cruise.
That's as much fun as it sounds - guests who visit the Flowrider surf simulator will be able to join complimentary group lessons from three-time European Flowrider champion Adam Wildman who'll demonstrate tricks and give expert tutelage and advice.
Wildman, who hails from the Gold Coast, enjoyed his first flowride onboard Freedom of the Seas in 2009 and now travels the world demonstrating and taking part in competitions.
He's encouraging first-timers to follow in his wake during Ovation's first Australian cruise.
"If you’ve ever thought about giving flowboarding a go, Ovation is the perfect place to test your talents," he says.
"The most important thing to remember is that falling is half the fun. No matter your age or skill, you’re guaranteed to have a great time”.
The ship departs Fremantle on December 6 on a nine-night cruise to Sydney calling at Adelaide and Hobart. Contact travel agents or go to royalcaribbean.com.au.
