Popstar sensation Dami Im will be the special guest onboard Australia’s largest and most technologically advanced ship, Royal Caribbean’s Ovation of the Seas.

Arriving on December 15, Royal Caribbean has planned a special launch party to celebrate her arrival and the Eurovision star will be doing an exclusive at the ship’s inaugural arrival event.

“We are now less than 30 days away from Ovation of the Seas’ Australian debut. The US$1 billion dollar ship will challenge everything you thought was possible on a cruise holiday, and so it’s fitting that she’ll be given a truly royal welcome; by the people of Sydney and also by Dami –  who has also been breaking records this year,” said Adam Armstrong, managing director, Royal Caribbean Australia & NZ.

Dami will perform to guests of the inaugural arrival event in Two70, the multidimensional venue on Ovation of the Seas that is an expansive lounge boasting 270 degree ocean views by day, and becomes an immersive, multimedia entertainment spectacular at night, fusing technology with entertainment using robotic video-screens, dramatic digital projection and high-flying aerialists and performers.

Ovation of the Seas will sail past The Heads at around 5am on December 15 before arriving at the Overseas Passenger Terminal at 6am.
