Review summary

Ship experiences

Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Overall the dining experiences were good except for the buffet breakfast which was overcrowded with inadequate access to seating


3 out of 5
We did not care for the one theater experience so we did not go back again

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Staff seemed friendly

Ship Quality

5 out of 5

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
We were placed in a disabled room so the spaces were larger than average

Ports of call

Alexandria (Cairo), Egypt

3 out of 5
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

Katakolon (Olympia), Greece

3 out of 5
Town was very small but we did enjoy going ashore just to walk around

Piraeus (Athens), Greece

5 out of 5
Of course, the Parthenon/Acropolis is the best reason to go to Athens
Don't Miss: Acropolis/Parthenon

Izmir, Turkey

5 out of 5
We enjoyed this port the most. Ephesus was most impressive and the Turkish people were very friendly.
Don't Miss: Ephesus

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!
