We had a really nice time

Sail Date: April 01, 2010

Traveled As: Couple

The ship was excellent. Boarding easy, Barcelona a great starting point. I am not familiar with the 6 star rating. It was not the best, In some cases excellent, But it was really good.

Pros: The Shows

Cons: Specialty restaurants

Recommends Norwegian Jade? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
A little cramped, but more than acceptable. If they would have ordered a smaller table, it would have solved several problems
Food and Dining
We thought the dining rooms offered a greater variety and scope that did the specialty restaurants. If you are charging a cover charge, we are expecting much more than the ordinary, much more than was delivered. There needs to be something special, something outstanding. We had four specialty evenings and not one time did we find outstanding. Not one time did I feel tht the meal was worth $20 more, or $50 more. Lunch buffets nearly always the same. Ask Holland America how to incorporate variety - it is possible.
Service and Staff
Most were friendly and helpful. Some were just helpful.
The production shows were simply great. The specialty shows were interesting. Worth our time every time.
