We chose this ship due to the itinerary and the great package deal. We had some ups and downs. Pros - Embarkation was just fine little bit of a line which we have always experienced with no matter what cruise line. Drinks are not watered down at all actually very tasty and the drink package is well worth it especially if it comes with your room. Staff was excellent we did not experience any rudeness with staff as some people mention everyone was very nice. The entertainment was good throughout the ship, must see the dueling piano's, and if Orlando the comedian is on the ship he is really funny. The Choir of Men was a great Acapella group.The Speciality dining was very good as well as the main dining rooms the Buffet was adequate. We chose to carry our own luggage off the ship and last day Disembarkation was a piece of cake. Costa Maya highly recommend Coral Go Experience which is electric bikes to rent not from ship did through trip advisor was a huge thumbs up and way to experience downtown Mahahual. Now moving on to the Cons... Communication from the staff regarding Tendering on and off the ship not the best. Harvest Caye-Biggest Tour trap and waste of time, waited 2 hours to Disembark to the island and we were supposed to go on the ships tour to the Barrier Reef snorkel which we still don't know why we waited so long to get off the ship and then not being informed that our tour was cancelled after another wasted 40 minutes waiting in Harvest Caye. The island is a beach that is consisted of broken shells, a large swim up pool that has outrageous prices for dinner, drinks and a large gratuity tag so needless to say we did not eat or drink there. Went back to the ship after spending 45 minutes there. Roatan Bay best to have a tour booked there as you will feel very overwhelmed getting off the ship there. Pool on the ship should be much bigger, as others have said a little small for the amount of people on it, and there does not seem to be enough public bathrooms from deck 17 and above. Read Less

A little bit about us, we are 52 years old and have never cruised before. We wanted a vacation that was laid-back, upscale, and hassle free. A friend suggested that we try the Haven on NCL. After doing a bit of research we decided on Norwegian Escape. The boarding process was quick and efficient. And the Haven concierge staff was always accommodating and had answers to all of our questions. We were lucky enough to book an owner's suite with la large balcony, it was on the front of the ship with gorgeous views. Some days we didn't want to leave our balcony. We ate breakfast lunch and dinner at the Haven restaurant, along with Cagney's and Le Bistro, all of which were excellent. Because our demanding jobs deal with people 24/7, we were looking for a vacation that was hassle free and quiet. The Haven gave us that. We enjoyed exploring the rest of the ship, but primarily relaxed in the Haven lounge, Haven pool, and Haven sun deck. The Haven restaurant staff was always friendly, tidy, and excellent service. And the food was top notch. We were lucky enough to book an owner suite, room 18700. Our butler Mellany was always courteous and friendly, and quick to respond to our requests. Our cabin attendant Gina, did an excellent job every day, and when the light switch broke, she had maintenance repair it ASAP. Griffith at the Haven restaurant, always made us feel welcome and pampered, and always had a smile on his face. We would highly recommend NCL Haven to anyone looking for a pampered Caribbean cruise.

My husband and I are former crew members on a different cruise line so have lots of experience crushing. We were 2 families travelling with young children ages 3 and 5. We chose this cruise for the price, the ports, and the Kids amenities. Embarkation in Miami was a long process unfortunately due to them being extra cautious as a result of Coronavirus. Once on-board everything was smooth. The rooms were ready and the luggage didn’t take long to arrive. We were in cabin 13296. Room size and balcony were good. A little rocky at the top back of the ship. Overall a decent room, would probably try to get a cabin midship next time. Ports (Roatan, Harvest Caye, Costa Maya, Cozumel) were pretty typical of the Carribbean. There was a medical emergency on the first sea day unfortunately so we were about 3 hours late arriving to the first port. They did adjust the departure time by a couple of hours to compensate. The downsides were the tendering. The tendering at Harvest Caye and Cozumel took sooooo long. I know tendering takes long generally but this is longer than I have ever experienced. Organized, but unfortunately due to the large size of the tenders and the shear number of passengers, it just took way too long. I would estimate an hour or more in each direction. If you were on the tender first you often had to wait 30-45 minutes for it to fill up and then sometimes another 15-20 for everyone to get off depending on where you are sitting on the tender. We didn’t have a beverage or dining package and did not book in any of the additional restaurants. We were completely satisfied with the buffet and other main/complimentary dining rooms. Staff was friendly and accommodating all around. Kids pool, ropes course, and water slides were good. Splash Academy was also excellent for the children. We didn’t get a chance to take everything in since we had young children, but what we did see if the entertainment was excellent. Choir of Man and Howl at the Moon were excellent. Choir of Man is different than most other cruise ship shows and I loved it!!!! We did not do any shore excursions and booked taxis in each port to beaches and resorts. Read Less
