Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2019
  • Destination: Canada & New England
  • Cabin Type: The Haven Deluxe Spa Suite with Balcony

Haven private restaurant...5 star food and menu , but..same menu every day...3star service..

Bayamo specialty restaurant. 5 star stellar food and menu, best service onboard!

LeBistro specialty restaurant , a close 2nd to Bayamo!

LeCucina Italian specialty restaurant, 4star food / menu 41/2 star service , crowded...loud

Carney’s steak specialty.. 1star food, buy your beef from any other outlet, company should review beef quality, portion, and train the waitstaff to a specialty standard..

Bar service excellent...

Great balance and variety on entertainment!

Bar selection good but a little aggressive to up sell, tho beverage package is underwhelming for selection

Wine choice on beverage package is embarrassing...average $10-$12 inferior choices

Though Reidel wine glasses available! They should offer a wine/ beer beverage package!!!

Spa and Fitness center ..absolutely fabulous

Butler and housekeeping service outstanding!

The haven is unmatched on any large ship choice being able to deliver personalized service!,,,

Embarkation to the haven ..5 star service...

The tipping and service charges questionably NOT Passed on accordingly to staff,,,

A double dip system set up to enhance NCL profits, but helps the stock price!

** disclosure this review coming from a retired professional from hospitality field****
