Vibe Beach Club vs The Haven

Recommended Posts

We are booked in the Haven. Do we have free access to the Vibe Beach Club? How does it compare?

No. 

 

Not sure what you mean about comparing. The Vibe is exactly 3 inches away from the Haven sundeck (metal partition between the two). The Haven you have a full forward view 270 degrees. Vibe you look out over the side. Given that they are in the same place, the sun angle should be identical. The Haven sundeck is free, you need to pay for the Vibe.

No free access to the Vibe, you can purchase it though. Very similar to the sundeck on the Haven, but the Vibe is adult only 18+.

Vibe is purchased once onboard and sales are limited, being in haven you get vip boarding and are more likely to be able to purchase if you board early enough. While they are escorting you onto ship tell them you are interested in purchasing vibe passes.

Don’t know about the other Havens but on the Getaway you can purchase.Vibe tickers at the Haven concierge desk. The Haven Getaway sundeck does not have a bar or hot tub. Beverage service is sporadic. We did a b2b on the Getaway recently. First week we stayed in a standard balcony and purchased Vibe tickets. The Getaway Vibe has two hot tubs, a large bar and clamshell cabanas that can be rented by the week. The second week we stayed in a Haven spa suite without Vibe tickets. Honestly we had a lot more fun in Vibe than the Haven sun deck which IMO is quite boring.

Never been in the Vibe, as it’s really redundant if you’re staying in the Haven.  Haven has the private pool, private hot tub, private loungers, and private bar with pool waitstaff.  I’vr Had some mighty good times in the Haven....far from boring!

The main difference is that Vibe is 18+ and Haven could have many Rugrats depending upon when you're cruising.  And of course the price difference of 129.00 versus multiple thousands of dollars.

Yes, it is. But Vibe is a place to lay in the sun. The Haven is a nicer, larger room, a private restaurant, lounge, butler and concierge service, priority embarkation and disembarkation, etc. If you only looking only for a more private place to lay in the sun, book Vibe. If you are looking for more than that, the Haven provides it.

Once again, can't overemphasize enough....129 versus three to four times what an average cabin costs.

I understand what you’re stating.  It’s just you’re comparing apples and oranges.  The Haven has its own enclave, butler, Concierge, restaurant (which is quite good), bar area, pool and hot tubs, and a private are much like the Vibe.  You get a whole lot more.  The last couple of years (at least), a Haven cabin gets you the drink package, the specialty dining package, a decent WiFi package, credits towards excursions, and recently, either free or reduced airfare.  So, you have to add those “perks” in as the VIBE alone doesn’t offer those.

 

I’ve stayed in the Haven probably a half dozen times.  And, compared to a balcony or mini-suite, the price I paid for the Haven was 1.5x-2x of those other cabins, not 3x-4x.  My opinion, worth every cent.

 

To some, it won’t be, and I totally understand!

 

But, you’re right...if all you want is a private area to hang out away from the other “folks”, then The Vibe may fit the bill.
