Norwegian Jade - Western Mediterranean

Sail Date: October 24, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Suite

Our tour on the Norwegian Jade was a delight. The ship still carried southern Pacific decor from its days a Hawaii based ship; so that felt a bit tired. It was a comfortable sail from the get-go.

Pros: Fine ship, good crew, appealing itinerary

Cons: Pressure to buy more goods & services on board; price of drinks.

Recommends Norwegian Jade? Yes!

After long days on shore excursions, we did not feel the need for many of the entertainment offerings. But those we checked out were of highly variable quality.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Food was better than anticipated. The added-cost restaurants were worth the expense and left the main dining as less than great. The buffet was delightfully diverse in its offerings and were flavorful.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
You could not go anywhere without being cordially greeted. Staff was eager to step up to offer assistance without being intrusive.
Monte Carlo, Monaco
The only disappointment was the famous casino did not open until after 2pm.
Naples, Italy
We went to Pompeii and Sorrento. Preferred the latter. Pompeii was mobbed!
Palma De Mallorca, Balearic Islands
Just loved walking around the old town.
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
I was amazed at the crowds in late October! The bus tour covered far more than I would have expected, so that was a real plus.
Livorno (Florence & Pisa), Italy
