Also, I have never stayed in the Haven but the Sun Deck you reference is also 16+ only. Not sure how tightly that is enforced.

 

"The Haven Courtyard and Sundeck

Soak up the sun, take a dip in the pool, then let the world melt away as you relax in the hot tub. No matter how you plan to spend your time, this private sanctuary provides the perfect escape. Access to Sundeck restricted to age 16+"

If they are with you at all times you are allowed to take them to your room as well as dine together at the Haven restaurant however they are not permitted to use the sun/pool decks.

 

I believe non-Haven guests are charged at the Restaurant however.

Non-Haven guests are only allowed to dine in the Haven restaurant at the discretion of the Concierge.  It is not a given that they will be allowed, especially if the Haven is full.

And, if the concierge does ok this, there will be a charge per person for your guests.

Don’t do it! I’ve done it once before and never again. 
 

Your guests will be allowed in your cabin only if you escort them there. They will be refused service at the bar and concierge will throw them out in heartbeat if they are using sun deck/pool lounge area. They can eat with you in Haven restaurant with concierge approval. This will likely only be granted once a trip and will almost certainly not be approved either first or last night. There will be upcharge as well along with asking you to come at less crowded hour like 7PM+.

 

IMO Haven Restaurant isn’t worth the upcharge but to each his own. 
 

you can use concierge to get everyone dinner reservations elsewhere.

I only travel in the Haven when we sail NCL but if I were going with another couple that werent sailing in the Haven, I would move to a balcony if you plan on being with them during the day. You have a couple of sea days on your way to Bermuda and you wont be able to enjoy the Haven amenities if you are with your friends all day. Just my opinion but you wont get the full experience.

And wasn't it $25/35pp... not sure, just thought i read it somewhere. 

 

About 2 years ago we joined friends for dinner in Haven.  We ordered drinks with our card at Haven bar and told them we were going in restaurant to eat with friends.  We paid $30pp for dinner.  No concierge permission needed.

it's required now and year and half ago when I did it on Away/Away+ classes of ships for sure. Every Haven briefing has including "Concierge permission required for non Haven guests to join you in Haven restaurant" It's possible if Haven is really slow, the maitre'd has authorization to do so but with how concierge's rule with iron fist, I doubt that.

 

Permission wouldn't be obtained by you, guests of the Haven would be the ones to get such permission.

Obviously, it did'nt work that way when we went.  Place was empty and food was nothing to brag about that night..LOL!..we were told the following night they had a much better menu..

Other than a few items, the Haven menu is the same every night.

 

Things change as far as the Haven restaurant and non-Haven guest access. It has been $25pp but I've also seen $35pp (especially if more than 2 people). NCL even tried a "...open to a limited number of guests....any guests. Even without a Haven guest..." for $50pp but that idea was shut down after the backlash from Haven guests.
