Heaven in the Haven

Sail Date: March 23, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

We had the pleasure of staying in the Courtyard penthouse w/ large balcony rm #17006. Our room was very comfortable with lots of storage space. Only problem, there wasn't a door to the little space that the toilet sat just a pull curtain, needless to say if you need privacy or sound proofing, it's not going to happen, lol. It didn't bother us to much. The personal attention was very nice, they didn't bother you unless you called. It would have been nice to have ice without asking or to make sure our Lavazza expresso machine was ready to go, but if that was the biggest problem then we are doing great. The elevators were always a challenge to get anywhere, very frustrating but it got better after the third day. We didn't know how to calculate tipping for our Butler and Concierge, we wish our travel agent had informed us how to. Easy on and off the ship with our haven room card. The food was amazing and the Cirque Dreams show was fantastic and we had priority seating any show or specialty restaurant we went to. To wrap this up we are ruined, cruising the Haven is the only way to go! Well worth the extra money!

we are already planing our next........Hum, I think we're going to try out the MSC Davina yacht Club next to compare the competition!

Pay the extra $ for the Haven, it's worth it not to look for deck chairs or over crowded pools not to mention all the personal attention!
