Haven Pampering

Sail Date: November 12, 2016

Reviewed: 7 months ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

All staff and amenities in the Haven were far above what we expected.  From our Butler to the Conceirge to our stewart.  Can't beat French press coffee every morning in the Haven restaurant. We were able to lay out by the Haven pool and listen to soft music without the "too" loud music (some people like this) heard at the public pool area. Our bartender Mark made sure I had the best Lemon drop martini in the world.  Not to take any accolades  away from "Sugarcane" the Mojito Bar on deck 6.  Found the food in "Taste" and "Savor", both main dining rooms to be excellent.  Great entertainment by our chef at the "Tapinyaki" restaurant.  Was not over impressed with the tours we were on, but I am sure that there were plenty which others people were able to enjoy.   Photo department took care of our yearly Christmas cards again with efficiency.  The ship is phenomenal, we never go to see it all.  Can't wait until our next cruise.  Very disappointed with the Casino.  Expensive and smokey.  Stayed there for about 15 minutes and never went back.  Saved a lot of money this time.

The 4 promo items offered were one of the reasons that we chose this cruise.  Disapointed in the WI-Fi, (but did not take time to look into it).

Cabin / Stateroom
Haven Courtyard Penthouse Norweigian Escape cabin is much smaller than most suites that we stayed in on other NCL cruises. But we made do. Spent most of our time elsewhere on the ship.

Norwegian Escape is a wonderful vehicle to travel in. Giovani our Captain did a fantastic job of giving us such a smooth ride, we forgot most of the time that we were on a ship in the Carribbean sea.
