We chose the cruise just a few months ahead. We wanted to splurge at the Haven and found a very good price. We were in The Haven Aft-Facing Penthouse with Master Bedroom and Balcony on deck 11. We had selected that cabin because of the large balcony and the option of adding our sons to the reservation later - but when they couldn't come, we used our Friends and Family Free perk and invited friends. To make the accomodations a bit more suitable, we hung a curtain from the ceiling using metal magnetic hooks in the living area so that when they folded out the bed at night, they had some privacy. (The ceilings are metal) But the little secret about this room' that is not usually mentioned, is that there is a second bathroom with a shower. It was tiny but it was a bit more practical for two couples. The cruise itself was lovely. The ship was not full. The weather was perfect. The haven was wonderful for us. The biggest problem with the Haven is that it is so nice... It is great that Norweginan has been offering all these free perks. But there are details regarding the Ultimate Beverage package, the internet package, Friends and Family Free, and others that are not exactly as I expected based on the description online. Our internet didn't work well. The push to get us to spend more money on something during the cruise was not as aggressive as RCL - but I still found it annoying. We did not get the kind of Havern Concierge service that we expected. But everyone else working there was wonderful!

Bonding with friends - best time ever

Cabin Review

The Haven Aft-Facing Penthouse with Balcony
Cabin H6 11908
We loved it! The second bathroom made it easy to share this suite.

The bedroom was small but well laid out. We had enough storage and the bathroom was great. I took advantage of the great bathtub and the provided bath salts.

There was a door from the bedroom to the deck. perfect.

The deck was very large and comfortable. We could see the whole expanse of ocean and there was little sound coming from the decks around us. Very Private
