We just returned from our cruise to Eastern Caribbean on the Encore. We were in The Haven Aft Penthouse Suite. It was fabulous! Ginormous balcony, and top notch room. The Haven restaurant food was so great, we skipped one of our specialty restaurant reservations. We spent some time in the main pool area, at the bar. The service there was also superb. I’ve seen some bad reviews about this ship, and don’t understand them. Yes, we were in the Haven, however we did go to the cafe, and spent time in all the bars, and also had dinner one night in one of the main restaurants. Again, all fabulous. We’ve been on a lot of cruises, and this one by far was our best. As far as up charges that some are complaining about, there’s always a charge to do a special activity like go karts, so I’m not sure why that’s a complaint. Don’t let the bad reviews turn you away. We experienced nothing but perfection.

Cabin Review

The Haven Aft-facing Penthouse with Balcony
Cabin H6
Our suite was so luxurious. The bed was so comfortable and bedding was fabulous. I want to buy the comforter! Our Butler Lanie and steward Jingle were amazing. We just can’t say enough good things about this ship!
