NCL Epic- Haven suites

Sail Date: March 01, 2015

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Large Group

Room Type: Suite

If you want to be 'SPECIAL' on the Epic book a Haven Suite. Priority boarding, tenders, premium show seating , individual escorts to shows and disembarkation.  The difference in price is worth it- own quiet pool and lounging area(s), own Concierge and Butler to pamper you and guests.  

Entertainment- Cirque de Dreams- fantastic- food was very good.  Blue Man Group very entertaining, comic on board was great along with Howl at the Moon!!!

There might have been 4000 passengers but there were no crowds anywhere we went.  The Garden Cafe has multiple stations- walk around until you find a less crowded one or eat your meal later.


Ship Quality
Clean, Garden Cafe-bright and cheery

Destinations and Excursions
Cabin / Stateroom
there were 6 adults in our Haven suite. The smaller bedroom for 3 was a little cramped and not enough closet space. Plenty of closet space in the master bedroom and lots of storage space. Breakfast delivery was on time and plenty of room to eat. Wish the balcony was bigger- but you had an awesome private lounge area on deck 16 and 17. The master shower is very cool- full length window.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica
no control over the rain at the beach-
George Town, Grand Cayman
Go cheap to the beach $2.50 USD by taking the bus. Walk off the ship and go to the left. bus stop can be found after all the comotion. I would recommend to go further than Royal Palm beach club it was crowded with 6 ships port.
Cozumel, Mexico


Pack your luggage then take 2/3 clothing out- you can do it with a carryon. You only wear your comfort clothes anyways! Super Easy On/Off and return tender in Grand Caymen as a Haven guest
