A delightful cruise

Sail Date: October 26, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship seemed to be the perfect size

Pros: Loved our stateroom with a balcony -- a must-have for us in the future too

Cons: This was our first cruise so we had nothing to compare -- all seemed quite nice

Recommends Norwegian Jade? Yes!

Food and Dining
Overall the dining experiences were good except for the buffet breakfast which was overcrowded with inadequate access to seating
We did not care for the one theater experience so we did not go back again
Ship Quality
Cabin / Stateroom
We were placed in a disabled room so the spaces were larger than average
Service and Staff
Staff seemed friendly
Alexandria (Cairo), Egypt
We were surprised by the amount of security needed here so we only went with the organized shore excursion to Cairo - Pyramids & Nile in Style. This was a very long day with stops at Papyrus, etc. that did not need to be included.
Don't Miss: Pyramids, of course
Izmir, Turkey
We enjoyed this port the most. Ephesus was most impressive and the Turkish people were very friendly.
Don't Miss: Ephesus
Katakolon (Olympia), Greece
Town was very small but we did enjoy going ashore just to walk around
Piraeus (Athens), Greece
Of course, the Parthenon/Acropolis is the best reason to go to Athens
Don't Miss: Acropolis/Parthenon
