Retiredcruisers's Past Cruises

Golden Princess

November 2014 - Golden Princess to Mexico

Princess doesn't shine

Princess advertises "Any Time Dining". On our recent cruise, this meant if you didn't get in line at least 1/2 hour to 45 minutes before the dining room door opened, you were left standing in line for 2 hours. Although they had 3 dining rooms, only one was offered for the 5:30 dining room option of "Any Time Dining". With over 2,000 guests on board, what a frustrating experience. Even after getting seated, we were quite disappointed in the quality of meals. We have had a much better dining experience on Holland America and Norwegian.

Please know this does not reflect our opinion or experience with Cruise 411. With Cruise 411, we have always had great service!

Norwegian Jade

February 2013 - Norwegian Jade to Europe - Mediterranean

Eastern Mediterranean Cruise

Norwegian's shore excursions were the highlight of our 10-day Eastern Mediterranean cruise. Additionally, the cruise director's history lessons and venue preparations for our trips ashore we're phenomenal. The service of waitresses and cabin personnel was also 5-star. We thoroughly enjoyed two of the evening entertainments. And the Norwegian Jade's band was spectacular ... the best we've ever heard or seen. The dining room meals, however, lacked the quality we had previously experience on the Norwegian Epic. As well, the day's events while at sea didn't seem to offer as much variety or appeal as did the Epic's agenda. I was so disappointed that the Jade did not offer an afternoon tea.

Retiredcruisers's Tips

Ensenada, Mexico - We found the vendors fun and friendly. I had a great massage downtown.
Golden Princess Golden Princess - Don't drink cafeteria or dining room coffee. Couldn't wait to get home to brew me a cup of good stuff.
Izmir, Turkey - The Ephesus shore excursion is an absolute must!
Piraeus (Athens), Greece - If you plan on taking a taxi, you get better rates by going beyond the dock's location. Just outside are many other taxi drivers who will give a much better fare.
Norwegian Jade Norwegian Jade - Take a bathing suit. The Jade's swimming pool was warm and relaxing.
