We got to bid for an upgraded room and we got switch over to The Haven section and got a fabulous Aft Facing Forward Penthouse Suite # 9706. The room was fantastic. As you walk in you have a dining table with 3 chairs and then a couch and chair lounging area. Next to that was a balcony, a bit ackward with a steel bin on the left-but that just gave us more privacy. We had a real king size bed in another room with a porthole window. But we were on the 9th deck so the view from the bedroom window wasn't great at all...but we didn't care because it's not as if you can sit in your bedroom and look out the window, especially when you have a balcony. The bathroom was a 5 star. Huge jet tub, separate shower with a sit down area, separate toilet to do your business and 2 sinks with a large counter. This room well worth the upgraded price. And The Haven section was exactly like you see in the pictures. We had our own private lounge/bar area. Own pool with 2 hot tubs and lots of loungers. Top floor was the restaurant (very tasty), more lounge chairs and an outdoor deck, lounging area with a hot tub and smoking section. The Haven was heaven! Embarkation was awesome except the check in part. NCL puts us in a small room, no refreshments. However, once we checked in, a guide walked us to a special area and we skipped the huge lineup. Disembarkation...we met in the Haven lounge, and our concierge took us through the staff elevators and there we were...out in a flash! Awesome cruise ship and beautiful ship. Entertainment was great!
