Review summary

The ship was beautiful, lots of fun things to do. The ports were amazing. The staff & food were both mediocre. Perhaps because I have previously sailed Royal Caribbean & Princess where the service, staff & food was amazing.

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

The food seemed to rotate around all week. It was very bland & too much of the same thing. Nothing that wowed me.

Onboard Activities

Service and Staff

I can't really say that they were very interested in service. Not at all personable.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The ship was beautiful and very clean. Seating was a problem in all venues. It seemed the hardest part was finding a place to sit and I feel the Haven took up too much space.

Cabin / Stateroom
