January 2015 - Norwegian Jade to Europe - Western Mediterranean
The Jade is an older ship that is still decorated for Hawaii -- rather gaudy for the Mediterranean. However, the food was good (just no lobster), shows great, and ports exceptional. Since the weather was cool, everyone stayed inside on "at sea" days. The Card Room really needs to be restocked with games as there were very few available. Movies and crafts (which most other ships no longer offer) were fun. When the weather was too rough to go to Palermo, the captain sent many waiters around distributing free rum punch for about an hour. The NCL excursions were very nice as long as you can understand English. All in all, it was a very wonderful trip.
