Since most of the luxury lines are not very family friendly what do you do if you want an upscale cruise experience with all the amenities of a big ship? Try one of the lines that have separate enclaves for suite categories. NCL offers The Haven, while MSC offers the Yacht Club. The posh suites are surrounded by exclusive amenities accessible only to guests staying within the complex.

Both NCL and MSC areas are complete with a private pool, sundeck and restaurant.

You will also have priority access to other areas of the ship like specialty restaurants, shows or the spa with reservations made by your personal butler or concierge. The MSC Yacht Club guests also enjoy unlimited complimentary beverages. (wine, cocktails and juices)


The concept of both is a ship within a ship, so you can have all the benefits of luxury cruising without giving up the activity of a larger ships like fun kid's clubs, Broadway style shows and late night discos.
