  1. Well said! The question “is it worth it”, is unanswerable. Everyone’s taste, financial access and personal preference can only be answered by the person asking the question. You have done a wonderful job providing all the information available to help us make that choice, but it always comes down to the individual to decide what is best for them. My wife and I have been lucky enough to sail in the Haven on our last several cruises (pre-Covid) and are booked for 4 more in 2022. You have allowed us to go forward and get the absolute most out of the experience!! Your tips have made that possible!
  2. I plan on cruising the Escape this fall (first time). I do not understand what you are referring to when you mention a “Vibe wall”. Could you please explain what you are looking for in the photo?
  3. I might have tried the ropes course, but have no interest in go carts. 😕
  4. Thanks for the photos! Future updates will be appreciated. Scheduled to sail her on October 22! 🤞🏼
  5. That is a great idea! All our previous Haven experience has been on Jewel Class ships which do not have a Haven bar. Cheers! 🍻
  6. That sounds like a perfectly simple solution, and I will try it. Thanks! 🍻 However, in most bars and sports venues I have been to, they are required to open the beer for you.
  7. In your experience with the DOS, have you ever asked for a few cans of beer to be placed in the emptied refrigerator? We have enjoyed the water, soda and mixers in the past. But sometimes, a cold can of beer just hits the spot! Or would this be a violation of the butler not bringing drink to the suite unless you are charged?
  8. I was was going to request the previously mentioned “longer Haven document” but see you posted the file on the previous page. Thanks for sharing! 👍🏼
  9. I would love to see your study document. Please send to Copper0044@gmail.com. Thanks! Stay safe! 😷
  10. I would think if the cabin has an obstructed view, it would be indicated. Be careful what is above you! On an Alaska cruise we were one deck below the ping-pong table. Slight noise problem, but we found it amusing when we found ping-pong ball on out balcony daily! LOL! Be careful, avoid being under shuffle board areas, running tracks or areas where deck chairs are placed. The chairs are moved often, especially in the early morning by staff. Good luck!
  11. Change it! When looking for a cabin, always check what is above, below and next to it. Everyone’s taste is different. Some people don’t like cabins near the elevators (noise?). Most people don’t want to be above or below bars, casino’s, pool deck with the moving chairs, main dining rooms, kitchens, child care centers. Front of the ship on deck 5 and you might hear the anchor being lowered? The comfort zone anywhere on a ship is a cabin with other cabins on both sides, above and below. Have a great cruise!!! 👍🏼
  12. Find the appropriate place for your question, this topic is about sailing to Norway. Good luck!
  13. On the Jewel Class ships, we love 10504 & 100004 and 9504 &9004. They are located on the front corners of the ship. They are larger Haven cabins with 1.5 bathrooms and 2 balcony’s!!! One balcony faces the front of the ship and has 2 lounge chairs and the one on the side has several chairs and a table you could eat meals at. There is a large living room with a dining room table for 4 people. The room comes with bottles of liquor and a butler. We love these cabins! The cabins on deck 10 are slightly larger.
  14. Akureyri is a long port day! We sailed the Jade there in 2017. The airport is a 10 minute ride from the port. We booked a flight to Grimsey Island, it is a 20 minute flight. Grimsey Island has a population of approx. 200 people and 2+ million birds! The Arctic Circle passes through the island (actually right through the airport runway). We arranged a tour of the island with the airport manager/gate agent who is also the island banker. lol. Beautiful VERY unique excursion!! We found the information on Trip Advisor! If you are a little adventurous, it is breathtaking!
