February 2016 - Norwegian Jade to Caribbean - Western
We booked our land excursions separately through . Watch out, because Norwegian Jade arrived one hour after our stated time for our day one land excursion. On day two, we stood in line on the ship for 1 1/2 hours to get a tender number to get off the ship at an early time, (we were numbers 9 & 10 in line). Our land excursion that day was set for 1 3/4 hours before we disembarked from the ship. On day three, we finally arrived 2 1/2 hours early for our land excursion. We have been cruising for years and have always booked our land excursions through Cruises Only and have never run into this problem before.
The ships daily buffet was not very impressive...same uninteresting food each day. The dessert part of the buffet was okay, if you wanted an ice cream cone, as the rest of the desserts weren't very plentiful for individual selection.
The staff on Norwegian Jade was very cordial and did try to help as much as they could.
We are up in the air as to booking with Norwegian in the future because we want to enjoy our cruises that we plan for our vacation each year, not to worry all the while we are on the ship cruising.
