  1. Hi all, I'm currently reserved on the Serenade of the Seas in Cabin 8566 (Oceanview Balcony) and due to several price drops, I'm considering moving up to Deck 9 in a cabin like 9610 (Spacious O.V. Balcony). The website says the OV Balcony has 179 sq ft/20 sq ft balcony and the Spac. O.V. has 204 sq ft/41 sq ft balcony. I'm sailing in the cabin with only one other person, my niece. Will the extra sq footage feel noticable? I assume it is worth the <$50.00 to switch to the Spacious OV? Many thanks! Lynne
  2. Hi all, Anyone currently sailing or just off the Breakaway sailing in the Baltic Sea? Other than new carpeting and change to Syd's Pour House, are there any other obvious changes or improvements? Thank you! Lynne
  3. Hi all, New NCL and new to the Haven on the Breakaway for 9 nights in June for Russia/Scandinavia. Traveling with DH and son age 18. We were lured by the Haven because we booked late (end of Feb) and the ship appeared to be quite full and after reading SO many reviews about how crowded this ship can be/feel in the buffet and elsewhere and the lines to disembark in key ports like St. Petersburg, we decided to splurge. Seriously considered Viking, Seaborne and Azamara given the Haven cost, but our availability of dates due to work and having an 18 yr old with us (not sure how fun those other ships would be for him!) tipped us over to the Breakaway. Hoping that having the Haven seems to be "worth it" especially to DH who is still smarting at the cost lol ; ) What are your tips for taking full advantage of the benefits of the Haven? Any "secrets" of the Haven alums? Thanks all! Lynne from Boston
