Lovely ship. Very nice cruising experience. Lots of activity restaurant options.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We love Free Style Dining. It is one of the things that brought us back to Norwegian. We like to eat when we want, with whom we want. The food is generally very good even in the restaurants without any upcharges. We only ate in one of those, the French Bistro, and it was especially good.

So much to do; not enough time. It's a party from the minute you get on the ship, but not in an overpowering way. Shows at not were good too.

Ship Quality

The Norwegian Jade is a nice size ship without being too large. It is easy to get around without getting lost. It is kept very clean.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Our stateroom was small but not terrible, certainly adequate, and very clean. Great value for the price.

Don't Miss: We had lunch at a farm near Sorrento that makes mozzerella cheese, olive oil, and lemoncello. It was a wonderful meal in a beautiful setting.

Rome is always wonderful, even when you have a problem. One of the friends we were with had a medical problem and we spent most of the day in a Rome hospital. They had to leave the cruise and return home, but the people and the care she received in Rome was wonderful.

Pros: Free Style Dining

Cons: Not enough quiet areas

Recommends Norwegian Jade? Yes!
