Norwegian Jade Cruise Review to Europe - Eastern Mediterranean
Sail Date: August 06, 2011
Ship: Norwegian Jade
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple

We loved this cruise despite some of the cons mentioned in this review. the entertainment was worth seeing. The food was not excellent, but it was still delicious. Desserts were their weakest on this cruise, but we still managed to gain lots of weight. The choices included two main dining rooms and a 24 hour cafe. Buffets were adequate, but not enough seating for all the guests. We just went to the buffet on our early departures for excursions. NCL does seem to charge for everything, but the greek isles were beautiful, the ship was smooth and sleek, and the staff worked hard to make it a wonderful experience.

Don't Miss: tour in Venice was convenient and worthwhile if you have never been to Venice
Pros: freestyle dining, ship entertainment, cruise director, Gary Glading. Tours were expensive but good
Cons: smokers on balconies. Couldn't sit on our balcony from all the smoke from both neighbors. ship should designate one side as the smoking side.
