Norwegian Jade Overview

By - Updated Aug. 28, 2019

With more than 16 dining options, a stylish casino, and refurbished staterooms, the recently renovated Norwegian Jade can satisfy even the most discerning travelers. From an early-morning swim in the ship’s crystal-clear pool to a night of entertainment with exciting Vegas-style shows, such as ELEMENTS! and Blazing Boots, cruisers can find engaging onboard activities at any hour.

After dark, Jade’s nightlife heats up in over 10 bars and lounges. With its art deco vibe, Magnum's Champagne and Wine Bar is a hotspot for passengers with high-end tastes to relax and imbibe, while cruisers looking for a clubbing scene can practice their best dance moves at the ship’s vibrant Bliss Lounge.

Jade also provides age-appropriate activities for younger cruisers through its kids’ and teen programs. Norwegian’s Splash Academy offers children ages 3 to 12 arts and crafts, games, and themed days, while the ship’s Entourage Teen Club gives teenagers a place to play games, socialize, or just hang out. Little ones can also take a dip in the Sapphire kids’ pool.

During its 2017 dry dock, Norwegian Jade underwent an extensive modernization through the Norwegian Edge program, which included updated decor and the addition of several new venues, such as the race-car-themed Pit Stop and O'Sheehan's Neighborhood Bar and Grill, which serves up comfort food 24 hours a day.

<>Norwegian Jade sails to a multitude of exciting destinations, with cruises to Asia, Europe, the Caribbean, the Bahamas, and Florida. Jade also offers repositioning cruises and 14-day transatlantic voyages from New York with stops in Italy, France, Spain, and Portugal. Jade sets sail from a variety of homeports, including Brooklyn, Tampa, Rome, Singapore, and Dubai.

Before You Book

Why Sail on Norwegian Jade: Cruisers looking for a fun-filled and destination-focused vacation without the crowds and navigational challenges of a larger ship will appreciate Norwegian Dawn’s multitude of exciting activities and somewhat more intimate atmosphere.

You Should Know: With a focus on exciting destinations and traditional cruise entertainment, Norwegian Jade lacks some of the thrilling, cutting-edge activities that the fleet's newer ships have. Families and active travelers looking for nonstop, onboard action may want to check out Norwegian's newer, larger ships like Bliss, Joy, or Encore.

Great Greek Isles Itinerary! Awesome family experience! by jimcurcio7026

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Nothing extra to add that I didn't already include above. Overall, this was a great family experience. We will definitely sail NCL again and have also bought some CruiseNext deposits.

Mediterranean/Aegean Sea Vacation by debsmith919

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Family (older children)

Jade was all about the money. They said to stay hydrated and wanted to sell water. Did not provide any useful information for those that did not take one of their expensive excursions. Said we could meet with someone ashore for info and map-mostly no one there. Too crowded ship...not friendly to meet people.

The spa is wonderful and the views from it are amazing. Research before you go because sometimes expensive excursions are just a short walk from the ship. There some excursions they offer they you wouldn't think of. All but a few ports we were able to walk out of without needing a cab.

The garden cafe had a little german beer garden port side that was quiet and friendly

Book a suite! The stateroom are a nice size if you can't afford a suite, but otherwise go for the suite.
