November 2014 - Norwegian Jade to Europe - Mediterranean
Love the varied Itinerary. This was our first trip to Greece and Turkey. My husband was skeptical of Turkey but ended up loving it. We loved, loved Ephesus and were so impressed with Kusadashi as a port. The overnight in Istanbul allows for a more relaxed experience. Previously we took a Mediterranean cruise that visited 5 ports in 7 days. Very exhausting and up early everyday for the excursions as most of the ports were an hour from the places you wanted to be. This was much more relaxing as the ports were convenient to shopping and the sights. Entertainment on NCL ships have proven to be very good and the food is also noteworthy. We dine in the regular dining rooms, not the upcharge dining. All the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. Truly a wonderful vacation.
