Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

We booked a Penthouse Suite in the Haven and now we're not sure we can ever go back to anything less.  It was well worth the little extra it cost.  The service was beyond belief.  There was simply no request that the staff in the Haven was unable to fulfill.


Our only complaint (and it's not really a complaint) about the ship is its size.  The ship is huge and even after 7 days, we did not see the entire ship.  The shows were fantastic, especially Rock of Ages and Burn the Floor.  And the Brazillian Steakhouse was to die for.


We highly recommend this cruise.

Ship Quality
Only problem, the ship is huge, maybe a little too big
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Everyone in the Haven gave beyond belief service. Our every wish was their command.
Loved Rock of Ages and Burn the Floor
Onboard Activities
Loved the Casino, but a little too much smoke
Destinations and Excursions
Kennedy Space Center was very interesting, but way TOO LONG and you could not take an earlier bus back to the ship. They need to cut it by at least a couple of hours or offer a bus back to the ship midway through.
Cabin / Stateroom
It was a little small for a suite, but very comfortable.
New York, New York
Can New York be anything but wonderful? We saw Motown the Musical on Broadway and it was wonderful. We took a shore excursion called Views of New York upon our return that ended up at JFK, and it was fun with a really knowledgeable guide and it sure beat spending hours at the airport waiting for our plane.
Port Canaveral, Florida
Really interesting but way too long and they really need to either cut the tour by a couple of hours or offer a bus back to he ship midway through the tour.
Great Stirrup Cay (Cruiseline Private Island), Bahamas
Beautiful with plenty of lounge chairs, the water was warm and clear, great barbeque -- a wonderful day!
Nassau, Bahamas
Make sure you visit Atlantis.


Elevators take a long time and we really could not tell why that was happening. Spring for the extra money for the Haven if you can. It's well worth it.
