June 2014 - Norwegian Jade to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Everyone ate at seperate tables so there was not much of a chance to make new friends The dinners in the included restaurants were not as great as the meals of past cruises. For those great meals, you had to go to the pay restaurants. There was a $20 transaction fee each time to exchange dollars for euros and the exchange rate was far above the actual exchange rate. Comparing Norwegian to Princess, Royal Carribean or Celebrety, Norwegan comes in fourth. We were celebrating our 48th wedding anniversary and according to the tickets, we were supposed to get an anniversay cake which never materialized. It just wasn't the Norwegian Cruise that we have had in the past. The itenerery was good as far as the ports were concerned but the tours were overpriced. We did our own thing at each stop and had a great time.
