From the moment we arrived at the Port of Miami, we were escorted onto the ship in the smoothest embarkation imaginable. We were welcomed on-board to our first class Haven Spa suite. Having cruised before on many other cruise lines, I must say NCL thought of it all. Food: The food in the Haven was delicious gourmet style. We dined in many of the other restaurants and enjoyed each. We also had our butler deliver food to the suite which added a first class touch. The Nespresso coffee machine in the suite was awesome too. The free style dining was wonderful. We enjoyed the Riverfront. The drink package was excellent. We enjoyed the SKYY Vodka Ice Bar too. Entertainment & Excursions: The shows were entertaining. Our favorite was the Syd Norman's Pour House (they had the entire audience singing along)... great fun! Our shore excursions were adventurous and outstanding, 11 ziplines in Roatan, Honduras, segways in Costa Maya, Mexico and dune buggy/snorkel in Cozumel, Mexico. We also booked the backstage tour of the ship which was interesting and well worth the time and additional fee. Haven: What can I say... superb! We were on a ship with over 4000 people yet we were able to escape to the relaxing ambiance of the Haven, any time we wanted to relax. The air-conditioned pool area was a dream come true. The Thermal Spa waters were incredible... we enjoyed the massaging waters, heated chairs and spa touches. If you can upgrade to the Haven, it is by far elite! There are no lines for any shows, you are escorted on and off at the ports so no lines or hustle/bustle. The concierge was always available for anything to ensure our vacation was pristine. Staff: The staff was helpful, informative and available to assist. This includes the entire ship, not just the Haven. Great smiles! Area of Improvement: We purchased the internet and it was extremely spotty/unreliable. As you can tell, it was an awesome vacation and even the disembarkation was smooth! We will return to NCL and actually can't wait! Thank you to NCL for making our vacation memorable.

Cabin Review

The Haven Spa Suite with Balcony
Cabin H9 14738
Our suite was beautiful and roomy. The bathroom was large with a spa Swiss shower, balcony ample with two chairs and a small table, incredible storage and a king size bed with luxurious linens. We like the room cold and it was perfect.. actually freezing (which would had the ability to control if we wanted it warmer). The in room Jacuzzi tub was a nice feature too.
