Travel professionals Ira & Helene Kaplan, and owners of Cruise Holidays of Marlboro, join Ken of Ask A Real Travel Expert to discuss Celebrity Cruises and Norwegian Cruise Lines suite perks. Ira and Helene detail two programs that Ken likens to “ships within ships”: The Retreat on Celebrity Cruises and The Haven on Norwegian. These two areas on most the Celebrity’ and Norwegian ships are made available exclusively to suite guests. Perks include: private speciality restaurants, private courtyards, pools / sundecks, butlers, concierge service, priority boarding and reservations “A great value for cruisers accustomed to first class on airlines and five star hotels”, say the Kaplans. Its also a great option for those looking for the luxury experience of a small ship but with the amenities and wide variety of entertainment found on a resort style ship. Ken and Ira discuss the price point on the Retreat and the Haven as compared to a luxury line and the main differences between both.

If you are thinking of “stepping up” your cruising, this is a must-see video.
