The Villas Complex, a two-story private oasis, is the largest ship-within-a-ship complex at sea and features a pool surrounded by plush daybeds, private cabanas, chaise lounges, and intimate seating for guests to dine al fresco.
In addition, the complex features two hot tubs, a steam room, indoor/outdoor dining, a bar, concierge lounge, sundeck, and a private gym overlooking the pool offering guests advanced cardio equipment and weight training machines with access to the ship's personal trainers. A dedicated concierge attends to individual guest needs.

I've never stayed in anything like that!
Here's a question for the forum: Does it make sense to spend a lot of money staying in a top suite on a mass-market ship or would you get a better experience in a more modest stateroom, on one of the Premium lines. (It might even be cheaper too?)

I would love to cruise in the villa complex ( I believe it is called the Haven ). It looks amazing. So you have the luxery and privacy, yet if you want, you do have access to everything that the big ships have to offer, which the smaller premium lines don't. Like the shows, and many dining options.

It would start with personal assisted priority boarding, then you arrive at the suite, which has bath room, sitting room with extra amenities and seperate bedroom and dressing room, you feel like you have arrived. Butler and concierge are on hand for all requests. Mornings we have steak and eggs for breakfast around the villas only pool area which also has gym, sauna, cabanas and hot tub. lunch is in villas only restaurant and seats for evening shows are organised by our concierge. Should we need to retire from the hustle and bustle of the public pool decks and other ares, we would retreat to the villas only sun deck lounging on steamer chairs and hammocks. Only the two of us are going on the Epic in July ( for our 40th) but if we wanted to take 2 others in the second bedroom it would cost less than an inside cabin. For those who don't see the benefit of a balcony, this is not for you, but for those who deserve a little extra now and again this is the way to go.
For a week at a time you can be the other half you hear so much about.
