Norwegian Jade

October 2016 - Norwegian Jade to Transatlantic

too many sea days in a row

Lunch, supper and snacks were great in the garden café.

Breakfast was too late, as heading West meant time changes often. There was no protein available before 6 most days , while people with blood sugar issues needed it an hour earlier every time change. (peanut butter, cheese, boiled egg)

Cruise director staff kept us well exercised and entertained.

Room steward for 4551 was the best ever ! She was cheerful and helpful no matter what...... (missing Bermuda which meant too many sea days in a row; rotten USA election results, extremely long  immigration in Miami for Canadians in 4th floor returning to ship )

Norwegian Dawn

January 2015 - Norwegian Dawn to Caribbean - Western

Breaking Even on the weighscales :

FFirst of all, we had the best room steward, called us by name ,and provided us with all the extra towels  needed for our hanging, dripping dive gear in an inside cozy stateroom. We have pictures of all te great towel buddies we had on our bed. Between the fitness room and the huge variety of fun sports onboard, along with the pool and reward of the hot tubs, we managed not to gain any weight in 2 weeks of a back-to-back cruise. We had excellent diving on colorful reefs as well as hot sunny beach days. The food never quit ! Early bird breakfast of fruit,granola,yogurt; the biggest vatiety of salads and soups for lunch followed by whatever we wanted for dinner in different fancy restaurants...including a surprise birthday cake with many singing crew...makes me want to live on the NCL Dawn.On our second week, we walked the towns, talked with the local residents, bought local coffee, honey, salsa to take home.Just before we packed to leave we cashed in our fun activity points for some tee shirts and great souvenirs , all free.   In spite of the fact the cruise line is constantly trying to get passengers to buy food or beverage or spa packages, jewels , paintings or use the casino, buy excursions......we only spent what we budgeted for and had a great time. We will be back!

gypsytraveller's Tips

Norwegian Jade Norwegian Jade - If you have blood sugar issues, bring your own peanut butter /favorite breakfast food.
Belize City, Belize - It rained both days here, but the diving was spectacular in the barrier islands.
New Orleans, Louisiana - We spent 3 hours snooping around the French Quarter on our own. The buildings are great.
Cozumel, Mexico - far too many tourists in a small area but the diving was great once we got in the water.
Norwegian Dawn Norwegian Dawn - Read the fine print to avoid unexpected charges. We saw several shocked customers on debarkation morning. Tips of 12 bucks per day /per guest are automatically added. We believe they are well earned.
