Norwegian Jade

October 2014 - Norwegian Jade to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean

Would Do It Again

Overall our group had a great time on this cruise. The ship was clean and well taken care of, as we were by the staff. The itinerary was great with only one rainy day in Corfu. Our inside cabin 5697 was small but well designed with plenty of storage for 2 and a better than average bathroom.  Our cabin steward took great care of us and our few special requests. The food in the dining rooms was very good and came very close to the best we have had on a cruise ship. The food in the buffet was pretty good.

The entertainment was just average although the onboard singers were pretty good. In general the sound systems in the theatre and in the lounges was over amplified which took away from the experience. 

My only issue with NCL is that they let people get on board and immediately touch food and utensils in the buffet.  Having been on a sick ship (NOT an NCL ship) before.  I wish they would serve food for the first 48 hours as on some other lines (Princess & HAL) in order to prevent the transmission of problems. The simple medical sheet and hand sanitizer can not prevent a problem.  

With a little paint and some simple decor changed NCL could tone down the Hawaiian theme.

jrsnew521's Tips

Santorini, Greece - Beautiful island that we will visit again sometime. The full moon rise over the island as we came on board was great.
Katakolon (Olympia), Greece - Visiting the birth place of the Olympics on our own was sensational topped off by more a good Greek lunch.
Corfu, Greece - We might go back when it isn't pouring rain. Tendering was no fun and for some passenger it was a little dangerous.
Venice, Italy - We began our trip with 5 days in the Venice area so we could enjoy one of our favorite cities. We stayed in Mestre and bused into Venice each day to save some money.
