Review Summary

Norwegian Jade was a great ship and all the crew were very friendly and helpful. The check in process at Venice port was smooth. The ports and excursions we took were arranged well. Highlight of the tour for us was the "Ephesus and House of Virgin Mary" tour - a must see for everyone. The shows were awesome and so was the food. The entertainment options were plenty, so much so that we did not get do do everything! The only thing that I wish they did was lower the prices on their SPA treatments. They have a great SPA staff but the cost is just way too much

Piraeus (Athens), Greece

We did the Parthenon and the Leisure shopping tour. Parthenon was good although it is under construction and was a little underwhelming. Make sure you watch your step - it is extremely slippery
Don't Miss: Sit down at a street cafe and eat some Gyros!

Izmir, Turkey

5 out of 5
The best port on our trip. Very well organized, best tour guides of the trip and great venues. We did the "Ephesus and House of virgin Mary" tour and it was awesome. It just felt unreal to walk the same places people did 2000 years back!
Don't Miss: The Ephesus ruins and house of virgin Mary.

Split, Croatia

5 out of 5
Did not do a tour. Walked around on our own since it was a small town too.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

5 out of 5
We did not do a specific tour suggested by NCL. It is a small enough town and we just walked around on or own.

Pros: The freestyle cruising, the friendly staff, great shows and food, excellent port stops

Cons: Not too many things to not like. Wish their SPA prices were more reasonable
