  1. You are going to have an amazing time! Once we started sailing in the Haven, we haven't looked back, although we are booked on an MSC "Yacht Club" trip over the holiday, so will be doing some comparing. I have always been sensitive to the times my kids will behave in restaurants, and we did plenty of room service as well so as not to cause disruption to others while traveling. My youngest was especially loud 😉 Our last trip on Getaway was over the holiday; details and pictures here: https://gotravellife.com/2018/01/03/about-us/ I have pictures of the Haven restaurant menus, as well as other specialty restaurants. We have always had extra attention from the butler, whether it's specific snacks you want brought (for some reason my daughter settled on Potato chips one trip,and they left chips EVERY day for her!), or asking to have your own pitcher of ice tea in the fridge (which they did for us when we asked). They really do work hard to spoil you silly. The Haven bar is just down the hall (really), so we had no issue having one of pop down to pick up whatever we wanted to drink, and with the UBP, made the decision to have the French Martini all the easier. Hopefully this is helpful!
  2. Yes there is a sliding door that latches on the master bedroom. https://gotravellife.com/2018/01/03/about-us/#Master_Bedroom. I called it out in the master bedroom review. Latch it tho as If there is ship movement, it will slide back-and-forth all night! Let me know if there’s anything else I can help with
  3. We loved the Segway tour as well and it sure was a lot easier than walking on all the uneven cobblestones! Especially since I’m a bit of a klutz. Enjoy your trip.
  4. They usually do two shows, but it is not every night. The earlier show is considered family friendly and the show that’s after 9 PM is a bit more risqué 🙂
  5. Oh my gosh we love Howl at the Moon. I captured a short video here for those who haven’t done it. Just scroll to entertainment https://gotravellife.com/2018/01/03/about-us/#Ship_Common_Areas. We close it out almost every night they offer it- so much fun!!
  6. We actually liked Harvest Caye as well. Yes it’s a bit of a walk from the ship but there was plenty to do, it was clean, the restaurant we went to was decent and people were having fun. There are a few more pictures of the island here https://gotravellife.com/2018/01/03/about-us/#Belize_Harvest_Caye if it’s helpful. I’ve also got a picture of the menu from the restaurant includes. Have a great trip.
  7. Sometimes we get tired of the sun :). Last time we were in Cozumel, we opted for a cooking school. It was walkable from port (at a restaurant called Kondesa). I’ve got the description; pics and links here if it’s helpful. https://gotravellife.com/2018/01/03/about-us/#Cozumel_Mexico_Cozumel_Cooking_Class Enjoy your trip! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  8. We have loved our experiences in the Haven and find the smaller group easier to talk to new people. Our daughter tends to go to the teen club so she’s off running around anyway, it hasn’t always worked out that she’s made friends staying in the Haven, but it’s good for hubby and I. I outlined our experiences here if its helpful https://gotravellife.com/2018/01/03/about-us/ Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  9. 5:30p so plenty of time to get to your show. I have pics of food from our trip- haven restaurant was great as well as Le Bistro (my personal fave!). Link is here https://gotravellife.com/2018/01/03/about-us/. Enjoy your cruise!!! Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  10. We were in 16112 and it was wonderful. Pics in this link https://gotravellife.com/2018/01/03/about-us/. I would agree with statement that closer to forward is quieter. I have also liked the Haven rooms where you are right across from the pool deck door- quick access :) Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  11. Howl at the moon is fun (earlier in the evening for youngsters). Video in this post :). We loved million dollar quarter too!! https://gotravellife.com/2018/01/03/about-us/ Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  12. We did Banarama as part of a tour. You could go directly there via taxi. Link is here for our review and pics https://gotravellife.com/2018/01/03/about-us/#Roatan_Honduras_Ronys_Tours_wwwronystourscom Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  13. We used Ronys tours in Roatan- they picked us up right by the port so no problem. In Cozumel we did a cooking class at a restaurant that was about a ten minute walk- not difficult. Details and links here if helpful https://gotravellife.com/2018/01/03/about-us/ Sent from my iPhone using Forums
  14. My favorite part was hugging the sloth. :). I’m sure it’s not good for them, but they were just so sweet and cuddly. Sent from my iPhone using Forums
