You can find the prior Honeymoon Haven Cruise post here. Continue below for our Day 2, which was our first Sea Day.
We woke up and had breakfast in the Haven restaurant, which was again wonderful. I didn’t get pictures this day, but have some on other days.
After breakfast, we headed out to explore the ship a little more, which is what a Sea Day is for! The ship is so huge, there was no way to see it all on the first day. I’m not even sure we saw it all after the entire cruise!
Deck 8 has a place called The Waterfront where there is outside seating for a lot of the restaurants and bars. There are also couches and chairs throughout for quiet places to sit and relax and watch the ocean.
Here is some info about The Waterfront on the Norwegian Cruise Lines website.
The chandelier above is in the area called 678 Ocean Place, which connects three floors of dining and activities. There are stairs here that can be used to access all three decks, and this stunning chandelier spans all three floors and changes colors throughout the day. The stairs also light up and change colors, but you can’t really tell in this picture.
We decided to have lunch in the complimentary restaurant O’Sheehan’s.
I had the Shepherd’s Pie, which was pretty good
Hubby had the burger and fries, which he said was ok.
I grabbed a drink on the way out of O’Sheehan’s at the bar. This was the Mr. Worldwide which was one of my favorites
We spent some of the afternoon in the Thermal Spa and the Haven Courtyard, but didn’t really get any pictures.
We went back to the room to find afternoon treats from our butler. Chicken salad sandwiches, which were yummy, and chocolate covered strawberries.
We got ready for dinner and stopped at the Haven Lounge for pre-dinner drinks.
All of the drinks I got here in the Haven Lounge were just drinks the bartenders made on the spot, based on them asking you what you were feeling like. Everything was unbelievably good!
This is the drink menu they had in the Haven Lounge, but I’m not sure if many people order from it in here.
Dinner at Cagney’s Steakhouse
One of the perks we got when we booked our cruise was a 3 night Specialty Dining plan, which means we can eat at any of the Specialty restaurants (not free) for 3 nights for free. Cagney’s was our first restaurant we dined at.
We shared three appetizers, and the appetizers on a cruise ship are really meant for one, unlike the ones you get at restaurants on land. They are usually very small.
This was the Oysters Rockefeller with Mornay sauce. I looooved these!
Second was the shrimp cocktail…
And third was the lump crab cake with Pommery mustard sauce. Pommery mustard is a gourmet French mustard…Amazon does sell it and I think I will just have to buy some! The flavor was incredible. Here is the link for the Pommery mustard sauce if you want to check it out.
I think this is the 5oz Filet Mignon with Bearnaise…sorry it came out so blurry. Probably too much wine by this time…
This was my hubby’s 18oz Bone-In Ribeye…I got my faculties back under control apparently. I’m also not sure why they served it with a side of melted butter.
Side of creamed spinach,
with a side of truffle mashed potatoes,
and a side of roasted brussels sprouts. I could have had three servings of these. They were unbelievable!
Dessert was raspberry creme brûlée with a Florentine cookie and a chocolate twist. Creme brûlée is one of my favorite desserts ever, and this didn’t dissapoint.
These were the end of the pics from day two. We don’t do the shows, so we just had a few more drinks and called it a night.
