We have two children age 3 and 9. We have also cruised before, but never With NCL. After Reading some of the previous reviews we had a pretty good idea of what to expect of pros and cons. We stayed in the Haven, in a two bedroom family suit. We all loved this and would definitely choose the Haven again if we decide on a new NCL cruise. The best about the haven for us were embarkation and disembarkation, breakfast in the Epic Club, the great suite and more personal service. Due to the weather the private pool was only used once, but that was great too. The variety on the menus for dinner in the Epic Club could have been better.
Our kids loved the children`s program and the staff in Splash Academy were all great. It was no problem that our kids do not speak or understand much English.
The Food in general was good. We enjoyed the privacy and calmness in the Epic Club. The fun and tasty experience in Teppanyaki and good quality food in La Cucina.
The Blue Man Group absolutely the best show we have been to onboard a cruise ship.
The drinks were good, the bar service in Shaker`s Martini bar excellent.
All in all a very nice and enjoyable vacation !
