A relaxing cruise

Sail Date: February 09, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Ship was supposedly renovated recently with new carpeting, among other things. That was certainly not the case on Deck 10, mid ship. Carpeting was the same as I recall it from our 2007 cruise to Hawaii. In definite need of modernization.

Pros: Service in Alizar restaurant and Madeira and Malaga

Cons: Canary Island Ports, some of the "talent"

Recommends Norwegian Jade? Yes!

Lousy acts except for the Jade Orchestra and its various offshoots. Most, at best, average. When so much talent is available in the world, surely you can do better. Again, the Jade Orchestra musicians were superior. Loved Mr. Year's classical guitar.
Ship Quality
Often a smell of urine from stateroom and public bathrooms.
Cabin / Stateroom
Enjoyed the balcony, tho it was often to cool to be out there. It would be nice also to have a small side table on both sides of the bed, rather than just one.
Food and Dining
Over-abundant serving sizes. good food prep, not great. Steaks were often gristly. veggies were always well done, not mushy. Desserts were good. i very much liked the variety available and often had trouble choosing a meal.
Service and Staff
All very friendly. Enjoyed their personal stories.
