Past cruises

Celebrity Summit

October 2020 - 12 Night Canada & New England (Boston Roundtrip) Cruise on Celebrity Summit

Norwegian Jade

August 2019 - 10 Night Greek Isles & Italy (Rome Roundtrip) Cruise on Norwegian Jade

Another bucket list Checked !!!

I thought we had a fabulous trip. This trip was chosen due to its itinerary. The shore excursions we chose were all extraordinary. While the ship was fine, I am more of a Bells and whistles type of cruiser. I like all the glitz and glamour of a cruise ship which The Jade is not. With that said, The Jade's service, food and entertainment were outstanding. Would I come on board The Jade again , probably not, only because I like more #WOW.

Cruise tips

Chania, Crete

The ship was only in port from 7 a m till noon. We did not get off the ship

Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy

A big beautiful city with tons of history. We had 2 days in Rome pre cruise and The first evening we had booked a Foodie tour which took us for pizza and gelato. Excellent tour of night time Rome all lit up. The following day we hired a private Guide For 7 hours Who Showed us the highlights of Rome And educated us on the history of this Special city. We ate at some great Restaurants And ate some great food. No problems with pick pockets,etc. Italians are very friendly people

Valletta, Malta

I thought it was dirty, ugly, And had little to offer. The best part of Malta, in my opinion Was sailing into And out of port.

Naples, Italy

We thought this was a beautiful port. We had a shore excursion Going to the Almalfi coast, Ravello, Positano, and Sorrento. Had authentic pasta at a restaurant in Ravello. Beautiful Little towns With lots of people at this time of year. What was I ever thinking When I decided to visit in August.

Santorini, Greece

Santorini!! Where were all the blue domes? (like in the pictures) Still a beautiful little island With friendly people. A tiny bit too commercialized for me. We did an excursion through Norwegian cruise line called Greek style Celebration OPA Which I would highly recommend. We had a delicious dinner at an authentic Greek restaurant with Greek dancing and plate breaking. I loved Santorini.

Piraeus (Athens), Greece

We did a shore excursion through n c l Called the best of Athens and scenic coast which I would highly recommend. It included a lunch at a Authentic Greek restaurant with delicious Greek food. The walk up the Acropolis to the Parthenon Was hot and crowded though worth the climb. The Parthenon was beautiful!

Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy

We had a shore excursion which took us to the leaning Tower of Pisa among other beautiful historic cathedrals. We were very cautious in Pisa, hearing that it was a sketchy area For pick pockets etc. We did not run into any problems other than the passive/aggressive vendors walking the streets carrying their goods. However, they were mostly harmless, just trying to make a living. We then were transported to a winery Where We were served a delicious lunch and many bottles of wine To sample. I forgot to mention early on, the name of this tour was Pisa and a taste of Tuscany. I believe put on by Norwegian. Excellent tour.

Mykonos, Greece

We did not have a shore excursion planned for this port. We did walk around the port And up some of the side streets which were very quaint And picturesque.

Messina, Sicily

We had a shore excursion booked through our travel agent Touring the town of Taormina. A beautiful, flower filled street filled with shops, restaurants, Cafes and people. The trip to the top Of the mountain is a beautiful and adventuresome drive.

Norwegian Jade

Norwegian Jade

The Norwegian Jade is a fine ship. Good for adults Who are looking for a relaxing retreat. Don't look for The Bells and whistles And over the top pizzazz Because you won't find it. This is a great itinerary and stops at some fabulous ports of call. Enjoy your cruise and use the self disembarkation process at the end of your cruise.
