Verified Review
7 Night Western Mediterranean (Barcelona Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 06, 2010
Ship: Norwegian Jade
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

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.
