  1. I sailed on the Grandiosa last year in a YC inside and loved it.  Admittedly it was a November cruise in the Med but I didn't miss the balcony as the YC area is so big and I just used the cabin to sleep in.  I've sailed NCL Haven before but think YC is a better product, the service is second to none

    THANK YOU !! 

    Just booked it !! (Cabin 12006) 

    I did a TA last year on the Star in 12068.  DIdn't miss the balcony and if I had seen your post earlier I would have suggested deck 12 as you walk out onto the pool deck.  The room is massive, I struggled to find the bed the first few nights.

    Not booking.  My wife passed away unexpectedly last month.  With a completely new outlook on life, I promised my kids and my granddaughters that I will be taking them on a Haven cruise as soon as things get back closer to normal.  But, I am not going to book anything until I get a good idea of how the cruises are going to work, and how the "new normal" rules get relaxed over time.

    Hi Dave


    Just seen this post.  So sorry to hear about Judy I have such wonderful memories of our Getaway cruise together and lots of laughter with you both.


    My thoughts are with you and your family

  4. I'm on this cruise too and have started wondering whether it will happen as the Epic is now in Europe.  I would be happy if you scenario was plan b but only time will tell.  Thanks for sharing your thoughts as it does give me some hope that this TA will go ahead even if it is just speculation

    Following.  We've booked this cabin too for the Dubai to Singapore spice route in 2021.  I do know that it is right next to the new Spice H2O (right next to the entrance doors) and there are deck chairs and tables above on Deck 11.  According to previous reviews, it was very quiet at night but that was when the kids water park and slides were located there instead of Spice H2O.

    I've booked this cruise too on deck 10 but an inside cabin 10671

    Dinner was not the experience we’ve come to expect. We were in a different dining room and it had a totally different vibe. How odd is that?  Service was “efficient” with zero personality. I could not begin to tell you who waited on us. Zero wine service. We had to beg for wine. And given my last glass of wine with my PPBP was a Frozen Rose’ from the pool bar, I was ready for good wine!!  Here’s the redeeming part. DH had had it, and talked to an assistant Mgr. Who was happy to help. But, the bar was closed so we couldn’t get another glass of wine. It was 10. We’d had one with dinner.  That manager Then gave me a bottle of the Isabelle Chardonnay  I was drinking. It is the nicest Chardonnay they have by the bottle. It is no longer included in the bottle service program, but he gave it to me anyway.  Thought that was pretty awesome. He’s my new vacation hero!!  

    most of dinner was repeats tonight. Favorites were potato soup, Cesar salad, DH loved the steak, perfectly rare, and chocolate melting cake was not molten, but good. 


    Which MDR was this as I would like to avoid it when I board next week.  Thanks

  7. This cabin was my first Haven experience and I absolutely loved it.  The room is lovely (especially the rainfal shower) and perfectly situated for the spa.  A couple of things to be aware of:


    1. The bed is round so if anyone is really tall could be an issue but perfect for me at 5'8"

    2. Others don't like the fact that there isn't an enclosed bathroom but in the Haven Spa suite the toilet is in a frosted glass cubicle so not an issue


    Look at cruisedeckplans dot com for videos of the cabin.


    To get to the Haven itself is really easy:  walk up the stairs one flight to the Lido deck (deck 15) and then get the exclusive lift by the outdoor buffet (one on the left as you look at them) either to the Haven itself or Posh sundeck, couldn't be easier.   





    As others have said the spa is amazing and the only one with an open balcony and the Haven itself is the biggest in the fleet and has a proper pool.


    With regard to noise from the deck enough I didn't really notice anything significant and I always bring ear plugs just incase but didn't use them.


    You will have a fantastic time.  I'm back on her in May can't wait.

    Lunch was a success. We went to the MDR, always like a sit down lunch on embarkation day. Service was good food was even better. Here’s the menu. So much for war on seafood. Showed up on the Sun!



    Thanks for posting in the menus.  I too am boarding on the next cruise and always head straight the MDR.
