THE world’s fourth-largest cruise ship docked in Fremantle this morning.

Able to carry more than 5000 passengers and crew, the Ovation of the Seas boasts 18 decks, a selection of retail outlets and more than a dozen restaurants including Jamie’s Italian.

It also boasts activities such as a surf simulator, rock climbing wall, bumper cars, sports court, outdoor movie screen, music hall, theatre and casino.

The shop boasts all manner of new technologies.

Passengers wanting a drink need only punch their beverage of choice into an iPad and a mechanical arm will put the ingredients together, mix it, pour it and serve it all in a matter of seconds.

Interactive maps stop passengers becoming lost aboard the 347m long ship and an arcade keeps the young and young-at-heart occupied for hours.

The ship also has two unique drawcards, the North Star, a capsule that lifts passengers 90m above sea level to enjoy a panoramic view, and the RipCord, a simulated skydiving experience.
