Great cruise

there were many things we enjoyed about this cruise but the length was one of the highlights. We had already been on the Jade on a cruise to Venice so we were familiar with the ship. Even though they are getting ready to update it still looked very good. A few things I would change would be a couple ports....Santa Domingo and San Juan served no purpose at all. I would have rather done a private island. There was basically nothing to do at either stop. Also disembarkment was a little confusing. Every one we asked gave us....and others different instructions as to where the line started...there were no signs, etc. and when we finally did find out, everyone was breaking in line. There needed to be some kind of rope, etc. 

embarkation was excellent!!

We had a wonderful time.

The bad we didn't like how there was no splash academy for kids under 3 years old, they removed the slide in the pool area, the manager at the hibachi was the worst manager I ever meet. The jade looked too much like the jewel (lay out on each floor) Other than those, the cruise ship was average, The pros was 12days long 7 island stops. The food, housekeeping and drinks were a thumbs up.

32 oz steak was great and 16oz Rib Eye was also really wonderful. Dining room meals were ok but not great....Not enough Shrimp Cocktail....Crew in all areas was not impressive with being overly friendly...

First time on Norwegian

Was expecting alot because believed Norwegian was rated as a better cruise line overall over Carnival.  The food was excellent, the crew and staff were fabulous, then ship was very clean.

Was a bit disappointed with the size of the cabin.  a foot and a half on each side of the bed with an overhead pull down bunk on one side of the bed (which made the one and a half space even trickier to navigate.  The space between the corner at the foot of the bed and the corner of a desk was at best 6".  One night getting up to go to bathroom I fell face first on the floor because after having negotiated the over head bunk and the foot and a half walk way to the corner of the bed, tuned to head towards bathroom and foot caught chair at desk at the foot of the bed.  Slammed hard onto the floor and bruised my brown bone, my cheek and my chin.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience on the Jade. We love sailing with Norwegian. We would definitely book another cruise through NCL. The staff are truly the highlight of the cruise. They strive to make every wish come true. Make sure to take advantage of everything the ship has to offer!

Nice ship/older crowd

Verified Review
/
Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

Norwegian Jade is an older medium sized ship that is clean and very nicely maintained. We had a balcony room (9120) .The room accommodations were very tight.. The king sized bed was nice but took up most of the room making getting around a little restricted. The bathroom/shower area was extremely small  with very limited space for hygiene supplies. The balcony is of average size with a couple of chairs and small table. That being said our room attendant was consistently great and did an excellent job. The entertainment had a few nice shows but pretty much on the average side. Let me just say that this turned out to be an older crowd. My wife and I are in our sixties and we were definitely in the younger end of the crowd. Many activities seemed directed toward an older age group. The food in the buffet area was also pretty average, The blue lagoon is open 24 hours and a nice alternative a couple of days (especially on embarkation day) to avoid the crowds. I would also recommend the specialty restaurants of Cagneys and Teppanyaki. The ship never seemed crowded and plenty of lounge chairs were always available. The embarkation process went smoothly. Disembarking was a little slow but not too bad.

in major need of refurbishing and not just a touch up.  No padding in the chairs, torn upholstery, the walking track on deck 7-non-skid surface was totally worn off down to the deck.  The crew provided great service.  Also, they now charge for the lobster and rib eye steaks in the main dining room.  Basically fed you pork, chicken, and fish and charged for any up grades in meat and seafood.  NOT a good things.  I always look forward to my Lobster.  Don't know if this is new across the industry.

We stayed in a mini-suite, which was wonderful.  The nightly entertainment was the best we've seen, and the shore excursions better than in the past.  We had a few slow ship departures, but other than that, things went smoothly.

Time in San Juan could have been longer.  The noise level in the dining rooms & special restaurants were very loud.  The location of Moderno was not good, located over the atrium area the noise from this area was very loud. 

 

The food overall in the Garden Cafe was very good with a big variety of chooses.

Book a suite! The stateroom are a nice size if you can't afford a suite, but otherwise go for the suite.

The spa is wonderful and the views from it are amazing. Research before you go because sometimes expensive excursions are just a short walk from the ship. There some excursions they offer they you wouldn't think of. All but a few ports we were able to walk out of without needing a cab.
