Norwegian Epic

January 2017 - Norwegian Epic to Caribbean - Western

Haven lifestyle

You have not really cruised until you have experienced the Haven by NCL.  The service is terrific and non-stop.  After 40+ cruises, I am in a position to make a good comparison.  After finding the Haven, I only shop NCL.  In the evenings, people would come to the Haven bar, grab a drink and just start talking.  Since it was a closed atmosphere, it invited conversation.  The bartender (bartendress?) knew our name from the first night.  I met people I want to stay in touch with for the first time in cruising.  Cannot say enough good about the Haven lifestyle.

Norwegian Getaway

September 2014 - Norwegian Getaway to Caribbean - Eastern

Wow - Haven was awesome.

I call myself a frequent cruiser after 40+ cruises.   The haven was called a ship w/in a ship but that did not do it justice.  The service and privacy in the haven was nothing less than awesome.  This was the cleanest ship I have seen.  If you wanted things to do, you left the sanctuary of the haven and proceeded to climb the ropes, walk the plank, climb the rock wall, or hit the wave slide.  We missed the shows due to other timing obligations.  When I shop for cruises now, I will look first and mostly at NCL.  My husband kept saying "How tough it will be to go to any other cruise line, specifically Carnival."

Carnival Sensation

May 2014 - Carnival Sensation to Caribbean - Bahamas

Standard Carnival

With CCL, you are not buying the most expensive cruise.  The service was, as normal, great, like most cruise lines.  To book this cruise again, I would go for a 7 day w/  butler service.  My mistake was in a short cruise that only went to the Bahamas, which I have visited probably 15 times.  It would be nice if you could do the 4 night cruise and hit the Bahamas and the Turks for a change in itineries. 

 

There were 2 nights that I was not impressed w/ any of the dinner choices and ordered a few appetizers.  I do not eat the "normal" breakfast good and could taste the grease in their bread/rolls.

perribrandon's Tips

Cruise Sawyer Glacier -
Nassau, Bahamas - Gets boring after a few trips there. Atlantis does not allow visitors to see the aquarium anymore w/o paying $.
Norwegian Getaway Norwegian Getaway - If you can afford it - go into the Haven. You will be so spoiled that you will not want to sail any other way or company again. Planning a future cruise w/ grandkids so I paid attention to the kids - they seemed to be having a ball. It would be nice if NCL substituted the Turks for Nassau.
