7 Night Western Mediterranean (Barcelona Roundtrip)
Sail Date: October 24, 2010
Ship: Norwegian Jade
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 7 years ago

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.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
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.

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.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
You could not go anywhere without being cordially greeted. Staff was eager to step up to offer assistance without being intrusive.

We went to Pompeii and Sorrento. Preferred the latter. Pompeii was mobbed!

The only disappointment was the famous casino did not open until after 2pm.

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.

Pros: Fine ship, good crew, appealing itinerary

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

Recommends Norwegian Jade? Yes!
