A vessel's private parts

A ship within a ship is one of the newer trends in the cruise biz. And while that thought may conjure the image of a little luxury yacht zipping out of a trap door on the side of big ol’ cruise vessel, it’s a reference to the private enclaves that are emerging on more ships. Designed to spare (paying) passengers from the crowds, long lines and morning sprints to nab a poolside chaise, these special sections also offer more chichi amenities, and privacy and security too: guests become familiar with each other in a few days and it feels safer for kids to run around. MSC Cruises’ Yacht Club, for example, features its own lounge, pool, and restaurant. Norwegian’s The Haven has own tricked-out suites, its own restaurant for breakfast and lunch, and their Courtyard has a private pool, hot tub and workout area. Both the Yacht Club and The Haven have butlers that are available 24/7. mscyachtclub.com; thehaven.ncl.com.
