Norwegian Jade

April 2015 - 7 Night Adriatic & Italy (Rome To Venice) Cruise on Norwegian Jade

A little bit of everything

Cruise met all our expectations. The crew stepped it up a notch with their friendliness and were eager to accommodate. Food was top notch. In fact everything exceeded our expectations. 

The only negative was that there we're 2 "at sea" days, when they clearly could have added another port. Starting in Rome, and spending a day at sea before our first stop in Naples didn't make much sense, being as Naples is about a 2 hour drive from Rome. We were joking that they could've paddled there and still arrived ahead of time.

Outside of that, I would highly recommend this cruise, and the Norwegian Jade. A real class act!

Cozumel, Mexico - We did the "Amazing Race" scavenger hunt excursion here, and this was about as close to the actual TV show, without actually being on the show....and of course, it all takes place in Cozumel. I don't want to give anything away, but it also includes a ride on a boat...highly recommend good walking shoes/sneakers, and a bathing suit! The down side of places like Cozumel and all the street vendors that are constantly hawking you, trying to get you to come into their store. "hey whatever you need, I got it here"....just got really annoying....
Miami, Florida - Always find time to visit South Beach, and stroll down Lincoln St. Tons of places to eat, and never been disappointed.
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Bay Islands, Honduras - Took a private tour from here all around Roatan. Saw the good, the bad and the ugly, but that's what we were looking to see. How different cultures live. Our private guide did a great job showing us all around. He took us to a beach on the west side, which was beautiful! Then to a local restaurant for some authentic food from the Island. It was really amazing! Wish we could remember the name of the place!
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico - Costa Maya is an Island built specifically for cruisers. Things were a bit overpriced, and food seemed almost Americanized Mexican food. That said, we left this area and took a tour of the Mayan Ruins independently. This worked out well.
Harvest Caye, Belize - Harvest Caye is also a private island, though I believe it is owned by Norwegian. Unless you book an excursion through Norwegian, there's not much to do here, other than take a water shuttle to Placencia, which we did. I pre-booked a golf cart, which worked out well, as they were all sold out. We were able to tool around the island at our own leisure. Unfortunately, you only get 3 hours, as the shuttle can only hold so many people, and you can't have everyone waiting to get on the last boat, as there wouldn't be enough room for everyone....
Norwegian Getaway Norwegian Getaway - If you're looking to get a drink, take note of the time of day, as certain bars are more crowded at certain times than others. We usually found bar 21 to be less busy, and after 10pm, behind it is club Bliss, which starts out slow, and up until around midnight, it's usually not too crowded.
Messina, Sicily - Any tour that takes you up the mountains is highly recommended.
Kotor, Montenegro - Vistas here were remarkable. Booked a tour with 2 other couples in a mini van. 33 euros per person included an all day guided tour with lunch and drinks can't be beat!
Zadar, Croatia - Krka National park and it's waterfalls were beautiful, but a tiny let down after Montenegro.
