The company also unveiled renderings for some of the ship’s most luxurious accommodation, along with announcing that the suite complexes on five of its ships – Norwegian Epic, Gem, Pearl, Jade and Jewel – will also be named The Haven by Norwegian.

“These private enclaves at the top of the ship are home to our most luxurious, well-appointed and spacious accommodation, offering the utmost in service and elegance.
“With the introduction of the suite complex on our Breakaway ships, we felt it was appropriate to brand this space as The Haven by Norwegian to better identify and describe the unique luxury cruising experience we offer.
“When I described the design theme for Breakaway’s staterooms recently I called it ‘modern boutique hotel meets the sea.?
“Now with The Haven by Norwegian, we truly have our own private boutique hotel on Norwegian Epic, Gem, Pearl, Jade, and Jewel, along with our new Project Breakaway ships, offering the ultimate in luxury and service at sea.”

The Haven on Norwegian Epic is the largest suite complex at sea, comprising 60 suites on two private decks at the top of the ship. An additional 15 suites also have access to The Haven.?
