Great cruise-good ports,excellent crew

Sail Date: June 06, 2010

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Ship was large, but didn't seem crowded. Crew, service were excellent. For price-entertainment and food were very good. Cabin was good. Hawaiian decor was fine-did not bother anyone. Not too many announcements. Passengers were treated with respect-no "attitude" issues with crew/staff. Everyone was anxious to please. Open dining and service in restaurants was very good. We have sailed Celebrity often, Costa long Indian Ocean Cruise and now Norwegian. Norwegian exceeded Costa and as good as Celebrity, except for food quality choices, but Open Dining made up for it.

Pros: ports, service, food, cabin, entertainment,open dining

Cons: buffet was hectic, more formal/dressy nights

Recommends Norwegian Jade? Yes!
