Norwegian Jade

October 2017 - Norwegian Jade to Caribbean

Had a great trip to new destinations

There have been some noticeable changes in service and food service since we last cruised with NCL almost a year ago. Service was satisfactory but at a lower level than what we experienced on other vessels. The itinerary was outstanding. Weather was picture perfect. No problems whatsoever with the ship motion/rocking. We plan to do another cruise in the near future but the selection will be influenced by the specific ship as well as the itinerary.

Norwegian Jewel

April 2015 - Norwegian Jewel to Caribbean - Western

Western Caribbean Cruise

Very relaxing.  Outstanding entertainment.  Excellent service.  Cagney's and Moderno were worth the additional cost.  Disembarkation took over an hour - much longer than expected

doosteo's Tips

Willemstad, Curacao - Fun port. Plenty to see and do. We went to the aquarium where we saw the dolphin show and the separate seal show and then had plenty of time on the beach.
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic - Fortunately for them they were not significantly impacted by the hurricanes. Tendered into the port was well done and visited the community there at the port. Plenty of shops and restaurants in the immediate area. The community had assembled entertainment to include acrobatics, dance and music.
New York, New York - Flew in the night before departure and attended one of the Broadway shows. Plenty to do and see.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica - Have been to Jamaica several times. Much has changed since our last visit, which was 10+ years ago. Tour staff were very helpful. Went to the bird aviary and waterfall area, which was not among the excursion selection from the cruise line. Was very enjoyable and well worth the time. We accepted the tour staff's offer to take us to a shopping area for souvenirs. They obviously had a vested interested in where they took us but there were many shops and prices were reasonable.
Kralendijk, Bonaire - Very nice port. Had prearranged an excursion separate from the cruise line. Vendor was a short distance off the pier and were very accommodating to get us to our destination via a boat shuttle that took us to "No Name Island" where we snorkeled and sat on the beach.
Oranjestad, Aruba - Did a bus tour of the island. Bus drive was entertaining and very informative. Felt very rushed as a fair amount of time was spent getting on and off the bus at each destination.
Houston, Texas - Unloading luggage and parking arrangements were satisfactory. Disembarkation took more than an hour - very long wait.
Cozumel, Mexico - Dolphin swim was fun. Plenty of variety. Abundant souvenir shopping.
