Norwegian Jade overview

By - Updated Mar. 9, 2020

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.

Greek islands by junkyarddog

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Jade

The ship had a lot less passengers than a normal cruise.This was good in many ways but at times felt a little like a ghost ship. The staff were great, friendly courteous and eager to please. Constant cleaning and sanitizing going on felt very safe. Didn't like having to wear a mask but only a minor inconvenience. Great ports, great weather,great time. Hopefully my luggage will be found in time for my next cruise

First trip to Southeast Asia by sdolbert

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Jade / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

If you haven't been to SE Asia, this is a great introduction. Each port is SO different and worth visiting.

Great Ports, mediocre ship and staff by fribaudo

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Norwegian Jade / Destination: Other (Asia/Africa/Middle East)

Trip of a lifetime in a poor excuse for a cruise ship, and a poor excuse for a mini suite. Excursion staff are a joke

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.

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