Norwegian Jade

May 2014 - Norwegian Jade to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

Off the beaten path -fascinating

Our earlier cruises have been to the Carribean and "mainland" Europe, which I loved. Going to two ports in Croatia, a day in Athens,Greece and Ephesus, Turkey, though, was an exciting change, a bit off the beaten path, a touch exotic. In Dubrovnik we went with an oyster fisherman, a retired army officer, in his boat to pluck fresh oysters off of his lines in the sea. We ate the oysters on the half shell with just a squeeze of juice from a huge lemon from his garden followed by a glass of white wine made by his father-in-law while we bobbed around in the sparkling water. I'm not an oyster eater but these were delicious ! Also enjoyed walking through the Game of Thrones filming locations in old town Dubrovnik, too. Turkey had its own beauty with its fruit trees and olive trees growing up the sides of the mountain. Taste the turkish bakalava - different from the Greek version- turkish delight and fig cakes. And how can you top a morning visit to the Parthanon with that piercing, blue sky as a backdrop to the gleaming white marble ?  A wonderful cruise, with just enough sea days to rest up for our next adventure.

LaurieinAtl's Tips

Norwegian Jade Norwegian Jade - Choose a cabin in mid-ship or aft. We were in the front of the ship and found that most of our on-board destinations were in mid- ship or aft so we walked long hallways back and forth to our cabin alot.
