7 Night Western Mediterranean (Barcelona Roundtrip)
Sail Date: June 27, 2010
Ship: Norwegian Jade
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago
The ship is terrific. Rooms were very comfortable and quiet. Nice beds, air conditioning, and very large showers compared to other ships I've been on.

Pool area was unbelievable with large water slides, live music, 3 hot tubs and various places to get food and drinks.

Food and Dining

NCL gives you a choice to eat at their buffet, or standard restaurants. The food was good but not great. By that I mean, mostly fish, chicken, pasta, and meat dishes. Very little seafood which I really like. The buffet area was pretty busy, but usually you could get a table with no problem.

We had one meal at the optional restaurant called Le Bistro which was fantastic. So basically, if you want great food, you can pay extra and try a different specially restaurant every night and I would assume they are all extremely good. It just adds to the price. There seemed to be plenty of capacity for the specialty restaurants on board with Electric signed saying what time-slots are either filled or available. A really nice feature.

We took a tour of the Caves which was ok. Very interesting, but the tour guide really did not explain anything about the formations. NCL provided tour was fair at best.

Took the formula one tour and really enjoyed it. Just by walking the F1 circuit you get a good feel for the city. NCL provided tour was excellent.
