We had a "Penthouse Suite" on the front of the ship because it was my husband and me + our 25 year old daughter (who just graduated from law school and took the bar exam) so we wanted to get a room big enough that we wouldn't be too cramped. We could have either had the front or the back and I am SO glad we went with the front because the balcony is probably one of the largest on the ship and the views are incredible! The room was not huge, but a LOT bigger than a normal balcony room and had the best balcony! It did rain a lot during the night, so I would recommend moving the furniture (3 chairs + 2 lounges) to the covered part of the balcony so they do not get wet.
The bathroom had a sliding door that closed off the toilet and a bathtub shower with a hand held shower head. We had higher quality shampoo & conditioner, which was great because the normal rooms had a 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner.
It also had a walk-through closet which you could open the door to close off a side so that you could change behind it without any one else in the room seeing, which was nice. The vanity included a jar with q-tips and a illuminated make-up mirror. There was plenty of storage for the three of us to completely unpack + some extra room! We did have to ask for a few extra hangars and they brought us 12 more! Our luggage all fit under the bed. There was a twin sized pull out couch that our daughter slept on and she said it was pretty comfortable! There was a curtain that could be pulled out to separate her bed from ours.
There was a Nespresso in our room, which we ended up loving because espresso anywhere else on the ship costs extra (unless it was in an irish coffee, then it was included in our bev package!). We also had a bottle of champagne and a large water bottle in our room when we got on the ship.
Although the room is not in "The Haven", and was probably the smallest of all the "suites", we had arguably one of the biggest balconies on the ship and still received all the big suite perks (i.e., butler, conceriege, special dining, reserved seating, etc.). Read Less
