December 2015 - 7 Night Western Caribbean (Houston Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Jade
On board experience
This was our first cruise. We enjoyed pretty much all of our experiences while on board. With that many people aboard and the duration of the trip it would be impossible that all would be perfect, never-the-less we have nothing to complain about. The room and the ship throughout was clean and very presentable. The food was very good and we especially loved the Garden Palace. It was fun drinking coffee while sitting on the aft for 12th deck especially at sunset.
We met no one who wasn't at least pleasant and considerate. The room-steward was always very considerate, thorough and cordial.
I (Jerry), and one other from our party of eleven must have eaten something Friday morning from the buffet on the 12th deck that gave us an upset stomach Friday evening and night. On Saturday morning we were both fine.
The stage show provided by comedian David Naster was very enjoyable. We laughed through every show. The magician and the acrobatic shows were good. The other shows and games didn't interest us.
Our room was quiet and we were never disturbed by noise from the hall or rooms next door.
In comparing our experience with Norwegian Cruise with that of others from other cruise liners, well, we made the right choice.
