Norwegian Getaway Cruise Review by Temeculan

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2020
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: The Haven Spa Suite with Balcony

My wife and I were celebrating our 20th anniversary so we decided we'd try NCL booking the Haven. Well worth it at the price point we got. Service was great...priority embarkation/debarkation was terrific! Made the whole thing worth it right there! The entertainment was great. We really enjoyed The Million Dollar Quartet, the actors were excellent. Burn the Floor was quite a show, too. We did pay to see Cirque Steam, I'd recommend it.

Dining was also enjoyable. We had dinner at two of the specialty restaurants...Cagneys and Le Bistro. Out of the two, Le Bistro was the better. We had reservations at Ocean Blue for a 9:30 reservation on the last night of the cruise, but we pooped out.

Entertainment at the Atrium lodge was fun. Lots of trivia, game shows, musical entertainment and informational presentations. All the drinks we had were quite tasty. We did have the premium drink package, so anything up to $15 was free. My wife made full use of it!

For the most part, everything was great. We really enjoyed the Haven experience and will probably try to book it again. A standard balcony cabin would be good, too...

Cabin Review

The Haven Spa Suite with Balcony

This is the cheapest cabin you can book to get into the Haven. I'd say it's well worth the cost! It's well appointed, the bathroom is very spacious with the shower being quite large. The king bed was so very comfortable...we had a hard time waking up! The balcony was a little smaller than we're used to, but it was quite adequate. Our cabin came with its own jacuzzi tub right in the cabin. Truth be told, we only used it once...but it was quite nice!
