Best vacation Ever!!

Sail Date: January 2013
Destination: Eastern Caribbean
Embarkation: Miami
This was our third cruise (previous 2 on Royal Carribean), so our first on NCL. We have always stayed in suites, and this time was no different. We were lucky enough to be in the Haven, and it was worth every penny! Our room was fabulous, and very clean.

The amenities that you get in the Haven, compared to the amenities you get in suites on Royal Carribean, cannot even be compared. All I can say is "Well Played NCL" - we will never sail on Royal again. From being escorted to shows for premium seating, to the treats delivered to our room daily, to the priority embarkation/debarkation, access to Posh, the Epic Club, it was all well worth the price. We felt pampered from the moment we arrived at the terminal, and isn't that what a vacation is all about?

The food everywhere was fantastic - we never had a bad meal anywhere. The service was great, staff all very friendly and helpful. Our butler was amazing, and very attentive.

The only piece of advice I More could offer would be for the people who like to walk in the morning. The jogging/walking track on deck 7 could get very crowded, so we went to the opposite side of the ship on deck 7 where the shuffleboard area was. No one was ever there and we could walk the same distance as the jogging track by ourselves everyday. Glad our butler recommended this to us!

We have already booked the Epic again for next year - and I can't wait!!! Less
