The Haven by Norwegian

I have to say my wife and I are not your average cruisers. We've only recently started cruising in the last 2-3 years. Traditionally when we vacation, we like to relax, splurge, go off the beaten path, and treat ourselves to a more laid-back luxury experience. For many years when planning vacations, though, the thought never crossed our minds that a cruise would give us this kind of experience. But then we researched The Haven by Norwegian Cruise Line. This was a different experience than our previous cruises. And if you are like us and gravitate towards a more exclusive, care-free, luxury experience, then you'll want to read further.

Norwegian's Casinos at Sea

I believe no one goes to a casino wishing for the odds to be against them. Everyone wants to win, whether they are playing competitively or for fun. The Casino on board Norwegian Cruise Line is no exception as every guest wants to go home with ample cash after their cruise.

While walk-on players may be intrigued by the Norwegian casino, it's the Casinos at Sea players who are much eager to start playing as they know they do not always have to win to start reaping rewards. Just by playing, guests will accumulate points, putting them in a tier. Each tier comes with varying benefits as a way for Norwegian to reward the most loyal players. Read below to see how you can get your hands on free luxurious spa treatments, specialty dining, drinks and more!

Casino On Board Norwegian Gem

Not everyone who cruises with Norwegian Cruise Line fancies just the herculean opportunity to travel to wonderful Caribbean islands or to succumb to the pristine waters of marvelous getaway destinations. Others have been allured by the great Norwegian Casino experience. While there are those who have already anticipated spending their days glued to the array of casino games, there are many who come without much know-how or without any idea of the fun that could be had.

As they say, it doesn’t take a Sherlock to be at home in the Casino. One might find it amazing at how easy the gaming rules are. With Norwegian, game rules are clearly laid out so guests are not required to be a master of any sorts. It’s normal for a novice to be dazed by the upbeat spirit engulfing the whole casino, everyone plunging into the excitement that all of our games provide.

The hardworking technicians have hung lights over the stage and assembled the set, so now it’s time to bring in the performers. Before the Brat Pack takes over the stage, the Production Stage Manager leads everyone on a safety walk-thru.
