9 Night Canary Islands (Barcelona Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 09, 2012
Ship: Norwegian Jade
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 6 years ago

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.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
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.

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.

Service and Staff

All very friendly. Enjoyed their personal stories.

Ship Quality

Often a smell of urine from stateroom and public bathrooms.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
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.

Pros: Service in Alizar restaurant and Madeira and Malaga

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

Recommends Norwegian Jade? Yes!
