Who says you can’t have it all?
Norwegian Cruise Lines is testing that theory with The Haven. Located at the top of 11 NCL vessels, this class offers spacious suites, exclusive venues, special services and amenities and privileges fit for a king and queen. And, by booking The Haven, you also have access to all the ship has to offer.
As a member of the Signature Travel Network, Acendas Travel has access to those industry insiders who provide us the latest travel developments to go along with the expertise of our knowledgeable travel agents. Recently, one of those insiders, Signature Executive Vice President for Luxury Services Ignacio Maza took a deeper look at The Haven and left quite impressed. His overarching message was to dispel the myth that you have to choose between a luxury cruise experience and a contemporary ship. In fact, he calls The Haven “a ship within a ship.”
According to Maza, The Haven experience stands out because of the outstanding service that begins 45 days from sailing. Travelers are contacted by a concierge to determine special guest requests (such as feather pillows, favorite beverages, spa treatments, excursions, etc.) that will be provided upon your arrival. Before embarkation, cruisers are taken to a special lounge for a meal experience of their choice. At every port of call, Haven guests receive priority embarkation and de-embarkation. An added value is a team of butlers available 24 hours a day at your beck and call. If being pampered is on your wishlist, then you can cross this one off.
The Haven rooms offer a wide variety of options, ranging from 350 square feet spa suites to the three bedroom garden villas that accommodate eight guests at 5,000 square feet of living space. Numerous suite configurations can meet the needs of the traveler, be it a couple, family, multigenerational family, or friends.
Of course, The Haven offers access to the entire ship for activities targeted for young and more mature. There are go cart tracks, swimming pools, rock climbing walls and more for the young at heart. Adults can lounge by the pool, enjoy the many entertainment areas and partake in the shows and performances. Intrigued by the thought of The Haven experience?
